I haven’t even really been able to get into the Marvel Collector Corps box that was sent out in December – that’s how crazy last year was! Filled with so much great Hulk merchandise! Going forward I’m really going to try to catch up – but keep in mind the way this blog works I usually post 1 or 2 items a week. This works out well as I don’t get overwhelmed in blogging and I can keep an accurate record of everything I still need posting.
As much as I enjoy getting deliveries of Hulk merch I’ve also become a little disillusioned by the MCC. The Thor: Ragnarok box was supremely disappointing – fidget spinner and all – with very little Hulky goodness inside. The only real exciting part was knowing that the next box was going to feature the greatest Marvel character ever conceived – the Hulk! We were even given a little teaser letting us know the most anticipated part of the box would be the 2-pack Banner Hulk first appearance.
Taken straight from the cover to the 1962 Incredible Hulk comic book we are served with a Banner Pop and an oversized Grey Hulk! It’s been a very long time coming that we were to get a grey Hulk Pop. I was sort of hoping for a Mr. Fixit – but seriously, this is splendid! Finally getting a Hulk in his original drab color has been one of the biggest hopes of avid Hulk and Pop collectors, myself included!
If I had a chance to add in just one little wrinkle to this magnificent 2-pack, I would have loved the Hulk to have the yellow shirt rather than the grey shirt drawn on the cover. Much like depicted on the description page in the box. Banner, who is an impressive little twerp of a Pop even sports some thick lenses for his glasses! It’s truly an achievement for Funko delivering such a fantastic duo to us – especially since the Thor box offered what felt like a retread of helmeted Loki.
The Hulk and Banner will easily be sought after for years to come – it’s already being snatched up for double to price on eBay. If you have the chance to snag this set then really – do so! The whole box is awesome – you will see as I post more from it.
