Great Article!

hulk letter

A friend of mine named Jameson has one of the best sites on the interwebs – I have mentioned it before and here I am doing it again – it’s called Daily POP.  You should visit every hour – or at least every day – but let’s stick with every hour for now… anyways, he has posted a few write ups by a guy named Mark Ricard who has been reviewing the Hulk in book form.  Check it out and then read it again to a spouse or homeless person.  Let’s face it – they have nothing better to do.

As always, click on the image for the link!

Mini Potato Head Hulk (2014)

The greatest thing about living as a comic fan is that you will see a resurgence of merchandise – really fun and unique merchandise – not the overwhelming, crap merchandise they release when a new movie comes out.  The Hulk is getting his just dues with all sorts of new Hulk figures littering the toy isles!  Things for every age too!  Here is a classic Mini-Potato Head with a helping of gamma-irradiated sour cream!  Each little set comes with one potato and two costumes.

Hulk is paired up with Wolverine – which makes sense as you’d can just toss the Wolverine costume in the trash and keep the Hulk one displayed proudly.  The other set I saw was a Doc Ock/Spidey combo. Not sure when the bigger Hulk-Potato comes out – but for now this will make due.  I found my set at TRU – I picked up one for me and one for my little cherubs.

Seriously, Marvel Select?

I am usually a huge fan of Marvel Select – but what is this?  Is this supposed to be a silver-age Hulk figure? Does anyone think this looks good? Hopefully the final, released product will look better – but for right now I am disappointed in the look of this figure.  Even the ripped shirt looks terrible!  What do you guys think?

Smash Bop Ball (2014)

hulk stuff oct 005

You read that right.  This is a Smash Bop Ball – a rubbery little Hulk you blow up and then punch until it either pops or you get bored and go do something else.  I can’t think of anything else that I would want to do other than punch a blown Hulk ball.  Wait… let me read that over : “I can’t think of anything else that I would want to do other than punch a blown Hulk ball.”  Nope, seems perfectly alright to me.  I mean, sure taken out of context, anything sounds bad – but I can’t see how anyone could take what I just wrote and use it against me in any way.  Anyways, here’s the Hulk Bop Ball.  Now go out and get it!
