Yes, I know – there was no post yesterday. I have been busy putting the Hulk room back in order. After about 4 months the construction is almost finished which means I can put the room back to it’s Hulky glorious ways! Pictures will follow shortly… But, a while back I showed you the Koto bust, telling you that I was able to snag TWO busts for an amazing deal. This was the other bust – a bust that I swore I would never own… mainly because of just how ugly it is! But I am happy to say, I picked this up for a basic steal! But I am happy to have picked this up – I can’t say it’s a favorite – but it’s the only bust of it’s kind as it’s the only bust I know of showing the Hulk in mid-transformation.
I can’t imagine the kind of stretch marks Banner must have… you know, from transforming back and forth all these years – not to mention how loose the skin must be – like a fat guy who loses 300 pounds in a month. Ugh… that’s so gross…
Anyways, the bust was a Tower Records exclusive – but maybe it was decisions like this that inevitably made them go out of business. I mean, they really didn’t think this would sell, did they? The other problem is that they made a TON of them. I mean, the days of 5,000 releases are over – and thank goodness! That’s hardly limited, considering the amount of people who collect comic related merchandise.
But here it is – the other bust I had to show off – I know, it’s not that impressive – mainly because it’s so ugly – but it’s still a piece of the collection. So enjoy! I wonder – how many other Hulk fanatics out there bought this bust? What are your thoughts on it?
