The Answer!

Yup – the answer was guessed and it is Silver Sable and the Wild Pack #4!

Hulk Key Chain (2011)

Hulk Key Chain

This is the kind of key chain I’ve been searching out – a nice big Hulk color Hulk face!  They have been using this image a lot.  Not that I am complaining – it’s a classic image!  Unfortunately I have only found one – and in order to have one on my key chain I need to find another!  That’s totally normal, right?  You buy two of most everything?  One to store in the Hulk room and one to use – I refuse to believe that is not how everyone does it!

Alright Hulk Fans!

I will get to posting more Hulk goodies from the Hulk room – but I am uber busy – so you will have to settle for the new game – guess which comic, issue # and artist that the panel above comes from – good luck!  When someone guesses the right answer I will post one of the articles I’ve promised!

Another Update!

New MU Hulk 2012

The one thing I love about the SDCC – it’s not the price of going – or all the hooplah – but I do love the sneak peeks – like knowing there is ANOTHER MU Hulk figure coming our way!  Thanks to the Chase Variant Site (Click on image for link) for getting a fantastic pic – and of course to Gamma Pup who let me know this bad boy was coming out!

Some Announcements!

Love this - LOVE IT!

First off – above is a teaser poster for the upcoming Avengers movie – and yeah, the Hulk looks sweet as hell on it!  Also, turns out that the Defenders are coming back and Betty – as Red She Hulk – will be on the team.  Blah to that…

New Hulk Cartoon

There will be a new Hulk cartoon – YES!   That also has the Red Hulk in it – Boo.  But hey, I will watch it.  Lastly, I know most people already know this tid bit – but Silvestri is helming the new Hulk relaunch in October with Jason Aaron writing.  I will miss Pak – but more I will miss Pelletier.  Silvestri has some talent – but I am not a fan of his Hulk.  Click on any of the pics to be taken to the Daily Pop – which is an excellent site that also covers all this crap!

Silvestri Hulk

Another Hulk Plushie!??!

Hulk Plush 2

I really like the last plushie looked – the one I picked up at the Boston Comic Con.  This one?  This one looks like it was made by a 5 year old.  It also looks like it was made from used wash clothes.  Why does he look like this?

Which one would you like?

The first plushies have character – I pretty much like everything about them from the wild, bushy hair to the round, black, lifeless eyes and his tiny little ripped purple pants – the new ones have nothing redeeming about them at all.  These will most likely land on my “Worst of 2011” list as THE worst item of the year.  Mark my words…

What are those flaps on the bottom? Are those supposed to be feet?

Marvel Universe Skaar (2011)

MU Skaar Figure

The Good: Here is a surprise – not in the sense that this was coming out – but that it looks this good!  I still think the price point is off on these figures – but I do like the details they seem to fit into the smaller bodies.  This sculpt is leaps and bounds better than the ML figure we were given a few years back – not just the sculpt but the scale to the figures in its respective line. 

Still not happy about the price tag - but these figures are looking better

The color is a darker green, which is way better than the teel-esque color that the ML is.  I’ve heard there are 2 variants for this figure out there (Yes, it was reported on this site by the ever helpful Gamma-Pup) – not on the figure itself – but the base which you stand the figure on.  One stand says “Son of Hulk” while the other says “Skaar” like the package does.  That’s the other thing that this figure has over the ML one – this figure actually states his name rather than just “Son of Hulk”. 

Skaar - He's a mean green mother from outer space

The Bad: Well, the card art is a pretty unfortunate choice.  The art at the top looks like Skaar’s making his “O” face – or even worse – his “I just discovered a dead hooker in my bathroom – and my wife will be home any minute!” face.  I still say that these figures should be packed with more than just a simple card and a love letter to Stark – maybe a mini-comic or something.

Hulk's son... still sounds funny to say that

The Ugly (Truth): If you are a Skaar fan – it is a must – I think it captures the brooding adolescent better than the ML figure does.  If you are a MU line fan – it’s a must as well – this is a beautiful figure to add into the line and done very well.  If you are a Hulk fan… well, make the choice up for yourself here – do you like the character enough to pick it up?  I know I did – and I am glad I did.  Grade: B+

One of my favorite items is the sword!
