That “We Have a Hulk” Line Keeps Getting Better!

A third Avengers trailer is out – and is it me – or does this movie just keep looking better and better?  “We have a Hulk” indeed… indeed.  Click on the little Hulk above for all the goodness!

Grab Zags Hulk (2012)

I was so upset to see that these little blind packages of Marvel figures came in… I HATE the blind package method!  But HA!  I had it beat – I stayed in TRU for at least 30 minutes feeling each package!  I figured out which ones contained the stupid light projectors – which ones had the pens – and which ones contained the figures!

I wanted the Hulk figure!  I can’t even tell you why exactly!  It’s not very cool – wait – reverse – it’s actually EXTREMELY COOL!  I love this little guy!  Now, my method did come with a small price.  I could tell which packages contained the figures – but I was not sure which figure was the Hulk.  So I took my best 5 guesses – and here is what I got:

The Whole Crew

One of my favorites is Cyclops!  His eye beam is down right adorable!  Let’s not over look the fact that I was able to obtain the BLACK SPIDERMAN!  The package said it was super rare – and I snatched one up!  I have no real reason to care about that – but I do!

What you can get...

Look!  #181 recreation!

Where is Wendigo?

Anyways, I landed a Hulk and a Wolverine – both of which are very cool!  I am glad I snagged these relatively easily!  I don’t think I could have handled another round of trying to figure out where the Hulk is!  These sort of remind me of the Superhero Squad figures – but with an Asian feel – making them somewhat cooler!

Green and Grey Hulk Puzzle Erasers (2012)

Green Hulk Puzzle Eraser! Comes in 4 pieces!

I was NOT going to go through package after package of these puzzle erasers to get the Hulks.  I just wasn’t.  I mean, if they were just a dollar or if I wanted to collect a bunch of them – that’s one thing – but I just wanted the Hulks.  And not even all of them!  There’s a Red Hulk eraser too – but I don’t really care about getting that one.

Now, as you noticed I was on a small hiatus – that’s because I am feverishly trying to gather funds for the Boston Comic Con at the end of the month!  Trimpe will be back and I can’t wait!  Last year I had no real money to spend – and that’s okay – but this year I have a little put away – and it’s seems to get bigger and bigger everyday!  So I am hoping to have a blast!  Is anyone else going?

Grey Hulk Eraser - The Hair, the body, the pants and the feet are all different pieces.

French Comics *(Ohh LA-LA)

Anyone speak French?

I picked these off the ‘bay mainly because… oh – comeon – you KNOW why!  It’s #165… in FRENCH!  Actually, here’s an odd thing, the story to #165 isn’t even IN this issue!  I mean, the issue BEFORE Aquon was in it – but not the issue with Aquon!  What the heck fire is going on?  I snagged this and the Cobalt Man issue – of course Cobalt Man was IN that one…

I would love to know what these say!

Custom Painted Red Hulk Bust (2012)

Red Hulk Bust

Yes, your eyes do not deceive you, this is a Red Hulk bust in my collection!  First off – it was super cheap – and secondly, I love this sculpt.  The fact that someone took the Grey Hulk version and painted it red was too cool to pass on.  Although – the green would have been my first choice to customize (no shirt) but, as any of you painters out there know, red is a really hard color to get to cling to anything.  If you are painting anything red be prepared to do about 6 or more coats – sometimes even WITH a well primed wall.

Your facing the wrong way Dummy...

Primer is usually a muted grey color – which is why it make sense to customize the grey Hulk bust – the issue comes when you have to decide what to do with the shirt.  The Red Hulk doesn’t wear a shirt… let alone a black one – but I guess the painter thought he would take the cue from the color of his pants.

That is That

Having the 3 busts all together does make it look really cool – but let’s get crazy thinking that this means I will be adding a whole bunch of Red Hulk crap to my Hulk room!  Listen, he would have been a great Hulk villain – had Marvel not screwed that up – and I do like the idea behind the character – but… let’s put it this way – you won’t be seeing any Sideshow Comiquette of the character in my collection.  Or any SS Hulk Comiquette for that matter… man, that is one ugly piece!

Red Light! Green Light!

Marvel Announces NEW Red Hulk Storyline Coming Up…

Mayan Rule Cover...

Click the link – I’ll be honest – I have yet to read about it – kind of busy right now.  But just the pics alone look interesting.  Parker has been writing the hell out of this series so I am pretty sure whatever is being cooked up will be fun… anyways – like I said – busy now – so more posts later…

Happy St Hulkys Day!
