I recently found this cover to Buffy: The Vampire Slayer #19 with a homage to the Incredible Hulk #1 but with Giles in his place. I really like the lengths they went to in capturing the essence of the original art – with the little Giles losing his eyes and the older (bigger) Giles hued in grey. Top notch work!
Just a random shot of the Hulk room. This table is chock full of great pieces including the Sideshow Hulk/Wolverine Maquette and the Master Replicas Hulk #1. The wall is covered with figures from the Marvel Universe and the Marvel Select line. With more and more Hulk merch continuing to be released it’s always a fun game to play of trying to figure out where I’m going to fit the new stuff.
Over the years the Hulk has had so many different looks – but all are monsters! Of course, it’s still amazing to see incredibly done CGI:
Last week of Hulk variants brings us some of the best! I really can’t complain about any of these covers as they were beautiful! As much as I loved all these covers I am glad this month is over. It’s a bit exhausting trying to keep up with them all!

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.
Remember to be jolly to spread that Christmas spirit!
I wanted to post a few Hulk shirts I was able to procure these past few months. The top pictured is from the Marvel Collector Corps Frist Avengers box. While it’s exciting at first to get these boxes it certainly doe run its course and becomes a bit more tiresome. I first decided to get the subscription service for the showdowns box that boasted that it will feature some of the best hero/villain match-ups of all time. Imagine my major disappointment when the only Hulk related piece was a half green and half red Hulk pin – not sure if I featured mine on this site yet – but I will soon if I have not. The real excitement from the First Avengers box came with this T-Shirt – and maybe it was a precursor to the upcoming exclusive Pop – of the Hulk #1 cover!
The other Hulk shirt was a Gladiator Hulk charging toward you from the Thor: Ragnarok film. Sold at TRU – or given away with a Funko/Marvel purchase – this T-Shirt was certainly a must have when I saw it. I love the stylized take on the Gladiator Hulk!
