Believe it or not – this is the cover to not only IM #76 – but this cover first appeared in IM #9!  Look here: Cover Browser and this isn’t even the Hulk – nope, just an android! Now, I just bought #76 – I don’t have #9 yet – so I’m not sure if the stories inside match as eaqually as the cover – I’ll have to get back to you on that – or maybe someone who reads this blog knows…

Marvel Universe Red Hulk Figure (2009)

I wasn’t sure if I should post this… the comments I will get… but the truth is that I’m hoping the Red Hulk, in the hands of a better writer, will become a cool Hulk foe.  Of course they will have to explain the color and tone down his powers a bit.  I mean, he took on the Silver Surfer and didn’t even break a sweat.  But the figures made are pretty sweet!

The Grey Hulk seems to be the rare one of the three Hulks made in this line.  I found two of them first… chalk it up to my Hulk loyalty – but only the Hulks seem to be gaining any value in this line.  Funny though – I got this at a comic shop in Salem.  I found this figure, a few other comics including FF #25.  It was supposed to be $180 – but I asked about a discount off of the FF issue.  I got everything for $150 – the actual price of FF #25.  So it’s almost like I got this figure for free – which is how I like to look at it!  They re-used the Hulk body once again – WOW!  3 figures – one mold.  That’s some smart business!
