I was late to the party when I realized how great the Walgreens exclusives began surfacing. I missed out on all sorts of Pops and Dorbz that I would love to purchase. Venom, Carnage, Spider-Man 2099 are all Pops that kick butt! I would rather not go to eBay so instead I do without. I was thinking I’d have to do without the exclusive Compound Hulk as well because I never bothered looking when it was all over the stores. One Wednesday in February I was on the way to my LCS when I noticed an Iron Patriot Dorbz on the shelf. I knew that the Iron Patriot was out about the same time as the Compound Hulk so I peeked at what was on the shelf behind him and saw… the Compound Hulk! I was so surprised and excited I might have said “You’re kidding me!” in a voice much louder than acceptable. I then hurriedly looked around to see if anyone heard me say that out loud. Thankfully, I was alone. Then I felt pretty embarrassed that I was talking to myself.
Either way, I was happy to stumble across this exclusive – while I have decided to really focus on the Hulk merchandise and not supporting players – I still have wanted this guy for quite a while.
