Hulk Insect Repelling Superband (2015)

In one of the best “random” Hulk items ever I give you: The Hulk Insect Repelling Superband”!  The way I understand this it seems as though if you put this guy on than you will not have to worry about being bitten by any nasty mosquitos!  I am unsure if this means you don’t have to worry about bites anywhere on your body or if it just protects your wrist that this sits upon.  Questions the world will never know…

Marvel Legends Avengers: Infinity War Iron Man, Thanos and Dr Strange 3 Pack (2018)

I certainly wanted to snag this 3 pack for one reason.  The new Thanos head sculpt.  I have every ML Thanos that was released starting with the BAF from the original Avengers movie and I didn’t want this one to slip through my fingers.  I will say, there was one humongous hurdle to leap: the price.  These Marvel Studios 10th Anniversary figures, filled with mostly re-paints and re-issues, are priced pretty outrageously.  the single figures are $25 while the 2 packs are topping out at $50.  The 3 packs, obviously, were hitting $75 so I didn’t think grabbing this new Thanos was going to work out.

That is until a fateful trip to Target one day, a trip with the whole family in tow, I stumbled across this 3 pack in the clearance section.  For half off!  It was $34!  I looked and looked and could not see anything different, anything wrong at all with it! A random chance at finding a super expensive 3 pack that I desperately wanted clearance out?  It was fate, I tell ya!

While the Iron Man and Cumberbatch Strange are kind of cool they really aren’t the reason to pick this up.  The BAF Thanos that came with the series, as nice as it was, was not impressive with the oddly stoic head sculpt that came along with it.  This new Thanos has a clenched teeth, angry sculpted head that absolutely freakin’ rocks!

The accessories that adorn the figures in this 3 pack are thankfully appropriate but expected.  The Strange spells, extra hands, Iron Man blasts and open handed Infinity Gauntlet that accompanies the figures don’t exactly make it worth the retail price tag – but since I found it for a song I was all too happy to snatch this up!

I would actually watch the crap out of this!  I love Ash vs the Evil Dead on Showtime – this would just be INSANE!

Hulk Phone Covers (Various)

I am an iPhone supporter.  I’ve only bought 2 iPhones since they’ve been introduced – the iPhone 4 and the new one I have now, the iPhone 8 – but I do like Apple products.  Honestly, I don’t think I would be able to defend my stance to someone passionate about hating their products but overall, like I said, I’m pretty happy with my products.  Now, you see a few different cases for different kinds of tech – but, as you might’ve guessed, these were not all mine.  Given to me by a friend I also guess that he didn’t have these products either since some of them have never been opened.

The artwork that adorn these pieces can be sort of controversial.  Too many people are ripping off the artists that have done the work and just use their talents to make some quick money.  It’s a frustrating process of getting eBay – or even rarer – the seller themselves to take the auction down.  That being said, I think it’s pretty safe when you’re buying from reputable sources.  Of the covers that I received I like the middle cover the best.  Yes, it’s the most simple – but also the most unique and fun.

I once heard a hotdog vendor in NYC tell a customer that he will slap him across the face with his entire cart if he reaches into the water to retrieve a hotdog with his hand.  To be fair, the guy was being an impatient dick…

My Son – Chip Off the Old Block

The day after Thanksgiving and I show off what I’m really thankful for!  These are my kiddos – my loves – and as you can see my son loves the Hulk just as much as his dear old Dad does.  I can’t take all the blame for this – after all, my daughter loves Captain America and I tried my darndest to get her on board of the Hulk train!  I guess it’s just a guy thing…

Have a very Hulky Thanksgiving!
