Hello Darkness my Old Friend: A Year of Hulk Confusion – Week 17

hulk confused 2

The craziest part is describing Sym as “barely alive”.  Dude – the thing is all bones and eyeballs – how is it alive?  There are no organs left!  I guess if Wolverine can still survive after getting his head chopped off then this little creature can still be amongst the living after wasting away to a skeleton.

Skottie Young Pins!

I have not found these yet – I nabbed the pic off Facebook from my friend Jameson- you might remember him from his blog the Daily POP – but I am looking forward to picking up the Hulk pin – based in art from Hulk #1 (2014)

Hulk Pins (2016)

I was excited to visit Disney this year – mostly because this was my children’s first visit to the magical place – but partly to see which Hulk pieces I could find at the park now that Disney owned Marvel.  I searched high and low – even at the Super Hero Depot at Disney Springs – and found very little to nothing.  I decided against the Hulk postcard depicting the cover to Annual #1.  I did find a few pins to get – and of those even one of them came from Disney.

The pin above came from the hotel we stayed at and to be sure, besides the Hulk hands, this pin was the only one I found.  I even strolled through the Lego store there and snagged a pic with the huge Hulk Lego:

The other three pins were found at the last minute at the airport.  Again, void of almost every other kind of Hulk merchandise, there were just a few Hulk pins on the racks.  My favorite are the two below.  A huge Hulk head and the 5 tiny Marvel figures, including the simple Hulk one – although the best one is the Punisher with his 5 O’clock shadow.

Some Hulk Magents, Pins and Stickers (2011)

Hulk Stickers #1

2003 Puffy Hulk Stickers - Bought from a yard sale...

For the past few months I have picked up quite a few little knickknacks – pins, stickers, patches and magnets.  Showing these things off by themselves never seemed very interesting – but now that I have quite the collection of these things gathered so… here we go!

Hulk Motion Stickers

Foil Stickers

I love stickers.  Who doesn’t love stickers?  They STICK to things!  If you put them into a girl’s hair – which I did many times as a kid – they stick!  I think everyone had a sticker book at one time – and I have had plenty of different Hulk sticker – ones that glitter and ones that are puffy – but no scratch -n-sniff.  How great would a scratch-n-sniff Hulk sticker be?  What would the best smell for this sticker be?  Remember the old “skunk” smelly stickers are?  The Hulk scratch-n-sniff may have given that a run for his money!

Dimensional Stickers

Doesn't he look... DIMENSIONAL!

I found something called “dimensional” stickers.  I believe it was 465 who mentioned that these things existed and I went out and picked them up the next day.  I think that is one of the best things about what came out of this site – fans helping fans!  There’s a great poster named Toy Thinker who has many, many times given a heads up about Hulk product on the shelves.  If I get a heads up I know there are other people who visit this site who also get a heads up – so anyone wanting to add their two cents – feel free to do so!

More Marvel Stickers

Window Sticker

The pins that I have – some were bought – but the first two below were given to me by one of my best friends.  Both pins are from Hulky goodness in the past – the 1976 Marvel Calendar and the Marvel Treasury Edition #5.  Each one is about the size of a half-dollar and have held up well over the years!  They are dated 1975.

This image is from the 1976 Marvel Calendar

And.... Treasury Edition #5

I was also able to score a few pins from my LCS and I also wanted to include a shot of all the pins I have… I am not all that crazy for pins… it’s not like I seek them out – but I will pick one up if I see it.

Pretty Much all the Hulk pins I own...

The magnets were purchased just recently at Double Midnight Comics in NH.  The store was a bit lacking in back issues and comic selection but had some great Hulk items.  My favorite is the puffy magnet – the one from the cover of #206.  I’ve seen that image used so many times over – but this has to be one of my favorite uses!

Hulk Puffy Sticker

Hulk Magnet #2

Hulk #181 - recreation cover

The patch I picked up… well, I don’t know – who even uses patches?  I remember them being big in the 80’s or something… but don’t you iron these on?  And didn’t metal heads have them ironed onto their jean jackets?  Oh great… now all I have is the image of a metal head ironing…

Oh yeah! Who is the man?

Hulk Pins Collection

Hulk Pins

The pins at the top are all the incarnations of the Hulk.  They came out in 1990 – as well as the 2 in the middle that re-create McFarlane scenes.  I got these from Rubber Chicken Comics when it was still located in Milford.  I think it’s in Franklin now, if not, it’s right over the line.  The Universal Studio’s pin is from 1999 when I went on the Hulk Ride.  The other two are the oldest of this set that I have.  The small circular one at the bottom is from 1978 and I found that at a Flea Market.  The last I got off ebay.  My favorite is the pin where Grey Hulk is jumping through the air and you can see the moon behind him.
