There is a few new items out there to grab if you are depleted of containers to hold both hot and cold delicious liquids. I love all the Hulk face molded mug that are on the market today – but the new mug is taken in a new direction. I mean, it doesn’t go off the rails completely but it is at least a little different than the ones we’ve been served with before. This Hulk isn’t the screaming face we’ve seen before – or even a aggravated snarl – no, instead we have a stoic looking Hulk. A content, maybe even puzzled Hulk.
This was an interesting idea – not sure of it will be a huge seller or not. Let’s face it – an angry Hulk sells – it’s the version we all know and love – but a confused Hulk? Not so sure… I’ve found this at Newbury Comics next to an Iron Man and Thor mug. The mugs are fine – but not very crisp or detailed. The paint application seems really sloppy, sadly as the green from the eyes bleeds into the face. Maybe the reason they didn’t make it a open mouth mug was a cost saver.
It’s fine, really, nothing special. The Disney’s Avengers mug and the 1997 Applause mug are way better and fantastically painted so if you want a mug people would actually be impressed by (like a date, or girlfriend… or mother) then I would search for those mugs rather than the new one.
But hey, you know what else is out there? A Hulk goblet! A goblet! Well, it’s a Hulk goblet at Toys R Us but if you find it at Target then it’s a candy dish. Depending on where you shop this Hulk find will take on different jobs. It’s a Hulk of many hats! It can be anything you want! Except for an actual hat…
At Target it came with cherry lozenges – at TRU it comes with hot cocoa powder. So, pick your poison! The Hulk goblet/candy dish is actually a fun piece – although not much better quality than the new mug – difference is that this Hulk is the whole enchilada and the other is just a constipated looking face. But here is all the wonderful green molded ceramic for all to enjoy!
