This is far and away the best Hulk poster that was brought into the Toys R Us liquidation sale. All the words not only title the Hulk and his catch phrase of the 70/80s television show but also shapes the Hulk’s body. Oddly, with the phrase ending at his calves they used his feet to spell out “Avengers”. It’s just an odd addition to the piece that otherwise kicks all sorts of ass!
In a zombie apocalypse I can imagine the supermarkets being hit first and the hardest. Can you imagine what the beans aisle would look like after the Hulk appeared there? Not to mention, he could be more careful emptying his cart at the checkout! Ever been beaned in the noggin by a can of beans? (See what I did there?) Not a fun experience!
There are a few Avengers: Infinity War opening day collectibles. Did I tell you the story how I went to the opening day event at my local theater and received the Infinity Gauntlet coin and collectible cup went awry? You see, I am so accustomed to throwing away my trash after the movies that I tossed the cup right into the waste barrel. I didn’t even realize until I was halfway home! It was the red and black cup that kicked all sorts of ass – but hey, life happens.
A few weeks later my friend told me that he had a collectible cup that had a giant Hulk head on the top. When he went to the concession stand to collect the cup he found out the Hulk was already sold out. But then – yes, there is more to this story…
On the movie manager retreat he saw the company who created the cups with a stand in the lobby of the hotel. He immediately went over and requested the Hulk head – alas, those were not the pieces he brought – but instead had the full figure big headed Hulk instead! I was psyched to finally get an exclusive movie cup from the latest Avengers movie.
It’s just the phrase coming out of your mouth sounds dirty…
The minimalist art on this piece is odd. The messy hair and gritting teeth obviously show off the anger and wild nature of the Hulk but sometimes the art just doesn’t work. The reason here is the odd shadows that the hair and teeth cast. I also wish there was no name on the bottom of the poster but I get why it’s there. Not really sure why exactly anyone would confuse this with any other character but I guess it could happen.
The Hulk has the added benefit to not worry about getting hurt – that much is true – but this had led the Hulk not even being worried about cooties! I mean, it’s possible he gave himself the “Circle, circle, dot, dot, now I have my cootie shot.” before he partook into this particular meal – but I doubt it!
Notice the small concern from the bystanders about Hulk going cannibal again? This is a disturbing trend!
The art from the Funko t-shirt that was given away at Toys R Us is also used for this lanyard. The great thing about these are the little plastic figures that are included with the pouch.
The Gladiator Hulk might be really close to the comic counterpart but the inclusion of the hammer and exclusion of an obedience disc will always be the glaring misstep of this movie’s costume. But the helmet is a major bad ass move!
