I am having a dickens of a time finding all the new Hulk pieces out there.  I was scouring – did I just say “dickens”? Yikes, when did I turn 88? – all the stores in my area trying to find the new Hulk SHS, the Handful of Heroes, the new Ultimate Hulk Mini-Mates… oh, you didn’t know about the Mini-Mates Ultimate Hulk?  Well, well… how about the new Hulk Pez – WHAT?!?  There’s a new Hulk Pez? – that’s you saying it, not me – Yes!  There’s a new Hulk Pez!  And I have found them all… except the SHS figure… damnit.

Look at that smile!  Freaky!  Creepy!  All of the above!

Anyways, here is the new SHS Hulk vehicle – the Rampage Rescue Tank!  First off, who left the keys in the ignition for the Hulk to steal a freakin’ tank!  Nice!  And did they leave a Gatling gun in the front seat?  Cause the Hulk has it now!  Remember the scene in Predator where they tore apart the jungle and – right after Jesse the Body died – and he had that mega killing machine gun?  That’s what Hulk has slung over his shoulder!  This toy is cool – mainly because it has revving sounds and moves on its own!  Woo-Hoo!

Back up bitches!

A Week of Absorbing Man – Tuesday (Journey into Mystery #114)

A mere two issues after the classic Hulk vs Thor issue a new villain appeared – The Absorbing Man!  Although he was given his powers by Loki and he was a powerful match for Thor – he became a major Hulk foe.  So perfect for the Hulk, in fact, that he’s had a spot in Hulk’s 1996 line of action figures AND the 2003 line AND the recent ML Hulk line.  I don’t own this issue… yet… but this is the first appearance of this classic villain.  Next up – the first match-up against the Hulk!
