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!
Walgreen’s certainly has a great deal going on with exclusive Marvel products on their shelves – but they can’t all be home runs. Take in point this radio controlled vehicle with the Hulk aboard. Never mind the fact that any “Hulk riding a motorized transport” toy makes little sense as the Hulk can pretty much tackle thousands of miles in a single leap. I picked up the TRU Radio Controlled Hulk Smash car a bit ago that is absolutely astounding – this is a different story. Originally priced at $14.99 I was pleased to see it marked down to only $4.90. I picked it up, not because I had to have it, mind you, but because I felt bad no one else wanted it! But – behold! Another addition to the Hulk room!
A few things are happening that is holding up my many updates due to this site. First and foremost is the fact that I have a new computer since my laptop died. That combined with this being an extremely busy time and it adds up to not being a conducive time for Hulk postings. I do apologize as I have been keeping up generally well this year! But I have a few hours and I’m taking the time to deliver and catch up with everyone out there!
I found these Hulk magnets a few months ago while in New Hampshire. The very top magnet is favorite of the bunch. The few other items I found are a light switch plate, a zipper pull, which I am guessing is used to… pull zippers? Also, a small Hulk head tin filled with mints – which also include little Hulk head shaped mints. A Hulk head filled with mini Hulk heads? Mind. Blown!
Last but not least I am showing off the Remote Control Hulk Smash vehicle. When initially released it was a hard pill to swallow when it came with a $70 price tag. I waited forever for the price to go down and it took a while before TRU decided to put it up for $60… but still I didn’t bite. It was hard to pull the trigger even for $10 off. Then it went to $49.99 online – and with a coupon and my discount it came to an earth shattering $35.00. It was well worth it at that price as this car runs on a wireless remote and those huge Hulk fists smash to the ground, flipping the car over and over!
So, there you have it – a little catch up with a hope to have everything up and running again in the next week. I have a new computer – I just need to set it up – and I will have more free time in the coming week. Alright, Hulklings! Keep it green!
I found these a few years ago and I loved them instantly! My favorite thing is the fact that these cars are not just simple cars with images in them but instead they are more in the vain of the Pixar opus Cars. Not to be confused with the utterly forgettable and embarrassing sequel. These cars are worth picking up due to the unique look to them alone! Keep an eye out as I didn’t find these in a toy store – I only found them in my local grocery store! So, while buying some apples make sure to check the toy aisle and see if these cars are there!
I showed off Hot Wheel’s Hulk releases lately – which are all sorts of awesome – but they aren’t the only Hulk vehicles you are going to see on the pegs. Here is the latest Marvel Hulk car – well, actually not a car but a Jeep. Don’t expect this jeep to just sit there either – no way, this thing is motorized! I prefer the details that Hot Wheels extended to their products, including the different colored wheels and the packaging with awesome backing card. This is fine too – but the packaging is certainly not as dynamic. The Jeep is a nice and large but the decals are somewhat uninspired with stock photos of the logo on the doors and a Hulk on the hood. If you’re just choosing one to go with – zero your sights on the Hot Wheels – even though they are smaller – they pack a bigger, more unique Hulk punch!
I remember finding this little guy last year some time ago as I strolled around the super market. It’s funny – I think the week or two before my wife informed me we were going to have another child and I sort of knew it was going to be a boy. I said it right away and even had everyone referring to the baby as a “him”. I was overwhelmed and crazy excited at the same time. Then I stumbled across this little Manga looking Hulk and it made me laugh. It was a scene from a movie where the new expectant father is unsure of what the future holds and then he sees something and the world make sense again.
This little dude resides in Antone’s room – where he will hopefully become his favorite toy someday – and he will keep him forever. The big chunky wheels with the “H” hub caps – hey, any pimp can have personalized plates – but personalized hub caps? That’s a whole different level of incredible-ness! And what other color would his car be? It’s got to match his attire!
