Marvel’s Handful of Heroes (2009) – Part 1

Marvel's Handful of Heroes

I was supposed to post some of these Friday – but I didn’t have time – and I’m kind of glad I didn’t because I was able to score some more of these Saturday.  They have been popping up in select K-Marts and Wal-Marts – it’s strange how very few seem to have them in – but if you’re lucky enough to see these the great thing is you can make out most of the figures inside.  That makes it possible to try and avoid doubles as much as possible.  It’s not totally avoidable – but good enough.

So, there are forty separate figures – each one has three colors – a solid or matte finish, a clear or translucent and lastly a translucent infused with glitter or cosmic (or “sparkly”).  Most of the more popular characters have at least 3 separate variants.  For Hulk figures there is the classic, Gladiator (or Planet Hulk) and King Hulk (or WWH).  There is also a Red Hulk.

In a strange twist of fate I seem to have gotten all 3 of the Red Hulks but am still seeking out a few of the regular Hulks.  I think these little guys are pretty well done – and each package comes with 8 figures.  If you’re able to track these down certainly pick some up – tomorrow I will be featuring the Hulk villains available.
