Infinity War Hanging Promo (1992)

Every once in a while when my LCS gets in collections there are hidden treasures.  While searching through the many, many new action figures they bought I caught a flash of Thanos on the bottom of the box.  I asked to see it and he pulled out a tangled mess that is this hanging mobileContinue reading “Infinity War Hanging Promo (1992)”

Avengers: Infinity War Mystery Minis Box (2018)

No lie – whenever I can snag a box like this I make sure to.  It’s pretty fantastic when you’re able to get something as an added bonus – most of the time stores won’t be bothered at all if you take the box since they would usually just throw it out anyways.  I wouldn’tContinue reading “Avengers: Infinity War Mystery Minis Box (2018)”

TRU Marvel Topper (2018)

Yes, another piece from the demise of Toys R Us.  These cardboard advertisements hung above the Marvel aisle.  I was always happy to see that, even when the MCU began to dominate the toys, that the toppers never ignored the Hulk!  The Hulk is still one of the top selling characters that Marvel offers andContinue reading “TRU Marvel Topper (2018)”

Toys R Us PS4 Lego Marvel Poster (2018)

I don’t think I will ever really feel alright with what happened to Toys R Us.  The intentional grounding of a beloved brand was just so upsetting – not as upsetting as the mis-information being spread around about why they closed, but still.  I was able to snag a few promo pieces including this posterContinue reading “Toys R Us PS4 Lego Marvel Poster (2018)”

TRU Thor: Ragnarok Display (2017)

As much as I have a reservation about how the Hulk was portrayed in Thor: Ragnarok I look back fondly upon the movie.  I look forward to adding it to my library and watching it with my son and daughter.  Then explaining to them why the Hulk should of had an obedience disc and how portraying him as aContinue reading “TRU Thor: Ragnarok Display (2017)”

Knowing the Right People Saturday!

Sometimes it’s best to know the right people at the right time! Department and Chain stores have been instructed by the toy companies and their direct supervisors NOT to give the promotional material out to anyone.  It is to be thrown away ONLY!  This is, of course, because too many people were taking these thingsContinue reading “Knowing the Right People Saturday!”

Marvel Poster (1972)

Here is a poster that comic shops would get to try and advertise Marvel comics.  This was acquired at Comically Speaking during my last visit – how could I not pick this up?  I asked around and am pretty sure this was a piece cobbled together from different artists.  For example, I’ve heard names thrownContinue reading “Marvel Poster (1972)”

The Incredible Hulk Promotional Standees (2008)

I have a few of these things now – pretty happy with the haul.  Most of the people I talked to gave me a strange story of how they “donate” all this stuff to children’s charities or schools.  Most of which was baloney.  The BK guy told me that he gives it to a schoolContinue reading “The Incredible Hulk Promotional Standees (2008)”
