Marvel Legends Red Hulk Premium Figure (2020)

IMG_1919 (2)

Well, this figure caused quite the stir, didn’t it?  Announced at Toy Fair as a Target exclusive people expected this impressive figure to hit the stores sometime in March or April.  To everyone’s surprise collectors began to post pictures immediately after Toy Fair, the last week of February, saying that these pieces are allocated to just one per store.

This caused a frenzy that showed the morals of some collectors while exposing the desperation of others.  Certain people, posting to Facebook and other social media, boasted about driving to multiple stores and snagging the only pieces in their area.  They then offered the extras at an extremely high secondary price.  The price tags soared to triple digits.

With the hype surrounding the figure reaching a ridiculous high I had decided not to feed into it.  I would check my local Targets but I would not go out of my way to try to snag myself one – nor would I ever pay the inflated prices on the auctions sites.  Now, while I had decided not to go too crazy in my search that didn’t stop my friend from checking the Pop Finder site and noting the inventory of our local Targets.  He surprised me in early March saying he found it.  I was beyond excited because this figure is truly impressive!  If you were one of the lucky people to get one when they hit retail, congratulations!  If you didn’t get a chance to get one – there is a silver lining!  Target announced a second wave are hitting the stores, no more of this “one per store” bologna, instead the stores should be stocking 4 or more at a time!  Be patient my friends, you should be able to grab one soon enough without having to rely on paying the ridiculous secondary prices!

The Rhino: A Year’s Worth of Hulk Nick Names – Week 17

Anytime you have to face off against the Hulk be prepared to be hurt both physically AND emotionally!  Honestly, I think the Rhino gets off easy here:

Rhino is Greyhide

and maybe a bit too on the nose here:

Rhino is also Animal Suit!

Even though this is a newly formed team, with most of the members still unsure if they even trust each other, they still aren’t to be messed with!  With Danni wielding Mjolnir she makes quick work of the vampire creatures attacking the team!  With the mystical qualities of the hammer she traps the leader and makes him answer some questions.  The team learns that the horde of creatures have been following the Doombots carnage and feeding off the fallen.

The leader begins taunting the group letting them know that the Doombots are in search of the heroes and all the damage they have come across is because the bots are searching them out.  Grant doesn’t take this new too well and handles it well:

Dwight, the new Ant-Man revives the new Vision who is quick to take up with these new heroes.  She also is so thankful for Grant’s help in burying her old team that she gifts him a relic that was freed from Doom’s trophy room, Captain America’s original shield.

With the team off to confront Doom, using the information found in a Doombot head they finally feel as though they might be on the right track!  They do not realize that a decrepit group of villains including M.O.D.O.K., Green Goblin, Absorbing Man, Shocker, Enchantress and another villain I can’t ID are all watching through the eyes of the head and are waiting to catch the heroes in a trap!

I don’t know what else to say to get everyone to read this book but it is so fantastic!  Such a fun read with surprise endings and great connections to the “Old Man” series that all came before it.

Villains:
  • Doom
  • M.O.D.O.K.
