A Week of Rocket Raccoon – Day 2

season '14 062

I’m going to have to catch up here at some point – I missed Monday’s post.  So it’s supposed to be day 3 and I am still a day behind.  Anyways, Funko has a line of Marvel inspired tiny bobbleheads.  It’s as frustrating to me as it is to you, I’m sure.  Because of the deal with Mighty Muggs Funko could not make these little figurines they way they did with the Turtles, horror and Sci-Fi line.  I was bummed that they were little bobbleheads – but it’s better this way, I think.  I didn’t have to go crazy getting them all.  I just got the ones I liked – like Rocket… and his friend Groot from the Guardians line.

Hallmark Hulk Ornament (2014)

season '14 017

season '14 018

I have to say I’ve been disappointed with the selection that Hallmark had given us these past few years as far as the superhero ornaments go.  I was fond of the Hulk #181 recreation ornament – but thought Hulk deserved his own seeing as the last one they offered was in the 90’s I think and, while it is a classic now, it doesn’t really represent the Hulk at his ferocious best.

Thank goodness Hallmark finally came to their senses and released a new Hulk ornament with sound effects and all!  This is a cool piece to add to your Christmas tree that has the right amount of fierceness displayed.  The “Hulk Smash!” that growls from it’s little speaker box is a welcome addition to make any Hulk fan’s holiday a little brighter!  Thank you Hallmark for a welcome addition to the Hulk ornaments on the tree!

Also, while you’re at Hallmark you mine as well pick up the Itty Bitty they are offering.  It is a tiny plush Hulk that has a bottom filled with beads to help it stay upright.  Anyway you slice it – a trip to the Hallmark store added a little green to any Hulk fan’s season!
