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.

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.
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?
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!
