Target Exclusive X-Large Gladiator Hulk (2017)

I have been extremely impressed with Target when it comes to exclusives this past year.  I am also extremely impressed with my wife who found this humongous and impressive beast! She regaled a story of how she called every Target in the area until she found this big guy in stock.  She packed up my stuffy little son – who was staying home from preschool that day – and drove about an hour away to snag this monster!  She wrapped it up and stashed it under the Christmas tree.

The crazy part is yet to come though… I told Olivia that I had heard many times that these huge Pop figures are arriving to Target with busted hammers.  If she were to come across a broken hammer Pop to snag it anyways and I will gladly glue the hell out of it.  She then drove the hour commute BACK to the Target the following day and found one with a broken hammer.  She was able to get it for a discounted price and when I arrived home that day she surprised me with it!

These Pops are absolutely stunning and the perfect character to release in the over-sized ________.  Target released a 10″ Groot before this which was very cool and regularly sells for twice the retail.  I feel like the Hulk could possibly appreciate in the years to come – especially since there are quite a few showing up to the stores damaged.  If you’re a savvy shopper these guys should still be in the stores – but desperate people can find them on the bay just be prepared to pay $40-$60.

So needless to say, my wife won major points this Christmas.  Not only did she find me a couple of 10″ Hulks (that sounds a little dirty) but she went the extra mile to get them.  Collecting all the Hulks from Thor: Ragnarok seemed a little daunting when everything was announced but ultimately I had fun tracking all the great stuff this time around.
