As much as I would like to report that this 2-pack is brand new the truth is these pics are from a long while back – things I took pics of but never posted. I know I found this set when I was working at Toys R Us and can remember opening the case and pulling these out brand new!
The images are from the epic trio of issues where Iron Man tries to beat the Hulk but has a heck of a time doing so! The set comes with a mini-comic – things that really make items more desirable and more sought out. Personally, I love the mini-comics and hope more companies do this!
This is another Hulk piece I decided not to add to my collection but thought you guys would like to see it. See, the car IS in my collection – it has been released on a few different cards including an Iron Man/Hulk 2-pack. So, even though there is some new card art I didn’t feel the need to buy this car once again. Still, far be it for me to deny letting you Hulk fanatics out there know about it!
These toys are really fun. The amount of fun really lies within your enthusiasm to slam your foot down on the included air pad. I need to bust this out and really see just how far me and my kids can make this go! 30 feet? I think we can beat that! If all 3 of us slam on it at the same time? We could make this thing SAIL!
It’s shocking to see that things are still being released from Thor: Ragnarok let alone the new Avengers movie. This Hot Wheels car was released with a whole bunch of other personalized superhero cars. None of them actually carry the Avengers title – which makes me think Hot Wheels didn’t get the rights to it. The characters are classic Avengers with some great artwork from over the years.
I like the cars that offer an actual image of the character – even something from the comics – but really, anything would do! I don’t exactly mind these cars because the color scheme still screams the Hulk but really, it also could be the color scheme of a number of characters including the Green Goblin, Donatello from TMNT, etc… That’s why I prefer to have a cool picture portrayed on the car itself. Either way, thank you to my wife for picking this little guy up for me at Target the other day!
I love these themed cars! I was not aware of this until I saw another Hulk fan post this on Facebook – by the way, if you are on FB then you should like my page, I post things on there way faster than on here. The poster who made me aware of this gem also mentioned that he was not willing to pay scalper prices. I understood what he meant when I looked on the bay for this big guy and sure enough it’s been posted for double it’s going retail rate.
I was able to mosey on into a Target and found two sitting on the pegs. I consider myself lucky because I probably would have caved and paid the higher price for it. I’m not obsessed with making sure I obtain every Hulk car – but this one is unique enough that I would’ve been remiss to not get this big guy.
Always happy to see Retro images being used on today’s merchandise! The image on the package comes from the cover to Savage She-Hulk #1! The image on the van is different of course and, as a total guess, I’d have to say it’s from an interior page – but where exactly will have to stay a mystery for now because I’m not scouring my books for one image! Maybe someone out there knows – let me know in the comments!
