The Many Faces of the Hulk!

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:

February Hulk Variants – Week 4

IMG_1089 (2)

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!

First Appearance Hulk/Banner Pop! (2017)

IMG_0913 (2)

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.

 

Be Merry and Green!

Some New Hulk Shirts

IMG_0768

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!

Hulk Transformations Tsum Tsum – and a King Hulk! (2017)

IMG_0845 (2)

It’s a rarity that I walk into a store and see a Hulk related piece that I wasn’t at least somewhat aware of.  Well it happened 3 weeks ago when I stumbled across this Tsum Tsum pack!  That’s right – we get a full transformation Hulk from small, adorable Banner to the large and in charge Hulk!  The big Hulk Tsum Tsum is the same little figure we were delivered the first time the green Hulk came to a peg near us – and while it’s completely fine I wish they did give us a little change.  There are more Tsum Tsums related to the Hulk than I even care to remember – with this addition it brings us to this list:

  • Large Grey
  • Medium Grey
  • Small Grey
  • Large Green
  • Large “Smash” Green
  • Medium Green
  • Medium “Transformation” Green
  • Small Green
  • Small Banner

But let’s not get too ahead of ourselves!  What’s that with the large Hulk?  While combing through the other packages I snagged another little beauty!  That’s right folks – a King Hulk!

IMG_0847 (2)

Straight from the pages of World War Hulk we are handed a King Hulk Tsum Tsum to beat all the other oblong little puffy heroes with!  No one is stronger then little, puffy oblong Hulk!  No one!

I have heard there is a gold version out there  – and yes, I know there is a few Red Hulks and She Hulks out there – but the list was for the Banner Hulks released.

Three’s a Crowd – A Year’s Worth of Cringe Worthy Hulk Moments: Week 42

We’ve all had tumultuous relationships – times when we were with someone who we just shouldn’t be with.  You never had conversations – you had shouting matches.  You didn’t have fight – you had all out brawls.  These toxic relationships are a curse without a clear way out.  We were privy to this kind of relationship in the pages of the Hulk when Joe Fixit was dating Marlo.  She loved him, she hated him, he didn’t care for her… until he finally did and by then… it was too late.

When Fixit fights off Werewolf by Night and saves Marlo’s life he also realizes that she loves him.  But not him.She loves the him who he is not.  Does that make sense?  Read it again and get back to me.

She loves the humanity of Fixit – the Banner side of Hulk.  The side that Fixit hates.  He realizes can’t depend on anyone or anything – it reminds me of the end of Heat with Robert DeNiro where he walks away from his girl because that’s what he HAD to do.
