For the past few months I have picked up quite a few little knickknacks – pins, stickers, patches and magnets. Showing these things off by themselves never seemed very interesting – but now that I have quite the collection of these things gathered so… here we go!
I love stickers. Who doesn’t love stickers? They STICK to things! If you put them into a girl’s hair – which I did many times as a kid – they stick! I think everyone had a sticker book at one time – and I have had plenty of different Hulk sticker – ones that glitter and ones that are puffy – but no scratch -n-sniff. How great would a scratch-n-sniff Hulk sticker be? What would the best smell for this sticker be? Remember the old “skunk” smelly stickers are? The Hulk scratch-n-sniff may have given that a run for his money!
I found something called “dimensional” stickers. I believe it was 465 who mentioned that these things existed and I went out and picked them up the next day. I think that is one of the best things about what came out of this site – fans helping fans! There’s a great poster named Toy Thinker who has many, many times given a heads up about Hulk product on the shelves. If I get a heads up I know there are other people who visit this site who also get a heads up – so anyone wanting to add their two cents – feel free to do so!
The pins that I have – some were bought – but the first two below were given to me by one of my best friends. Both pins are from Hulky goodness in the past – the 1976 Marvel Calendar and the Marvel Treasury Edition #5. Each one is about the size of a half-dollar and have held up well over the years! They are dated 1975.
I was also able to score a few pins from my LCS and I also wanted to include a shot of all the pins I have… I am not all that crazy for pins… it’s not like I seek them out – but I will pick one up if I see it.
The magnets were purchased just recently at Double Midnight Comics in NH. The store was a bit lacking in back issues and comic selection but had some great Hulk items. My favorite is the puffy magnet – the one from the cover of #206. I’ve seen that image used so many times over – but this has to be one of my favorite uses!
The patch I picked up… well, I don’t know – who even uses patches? I remember them being big in the 80’s or something… but don’t you iron these on? And didn’t metal heads have them ironed onto their jean jackets? Oh great… now all I have is the image of a metal head ironing…
