Acquisition Wednesday!

christmas '13 036

I really hope one day to throw a dinner party where I invite all the Hulk collectors I know and we can use all these glasses I have been collecting all these years!  Toon Tumblers showed Marvel that glasses can be collectibles too – so they have started to release sets in the past few years.  This Marvel 4-Glasses Set ($19.99, 2012) has smaller, or at least thinner glasses, and they feature Cap, Spidey, Hulk and Wolvie.  They are really nice – but nothing seems to stand up to the quality that the Toon Tumblers do.  I must say though… I do love the classic image they used this time – how many years was that in the corner of every Hulk issue we bought?  Although – I am pretty sure they put a different head on the body!  Just don’t wash these glasses in the dish washer – HAND WASH ONLY!
