This is more like a diorama rather than just a statue.  Showing Banner slowly turn into Hulk.  I have the green version of this statue – it was actually the very first statue I ever bought… on layaway.  When I actually got to take it home it was already worthless. 🙂  I have no worries though – it’s not like I would try to sell it anyways.  But now, onto this statue.  Sometimes ebay actually has a good deal or two – and this was one of those times.

I saw this auction starting at $24.99 – and I waited… no one seemed to be bidding.  I waited the auction down to the last few minutes and finally set in my higest bid – at $25.00.  That’s right, I wasn’t going two pennies over the starting price.  Luckily, no one else was either.  Most people wouldn’t bother with this statue – and I agree that there are much better representations of the Hulk, but this staue is unique.  It’s one of the only ones that show the transformation – and it has sentimental value to me 🙂 They made 250 of these and mine is #213.

Plastic Hulk Cup (1997)

Another Applause product from ’97.  I think I actually used this once or twice.  It’s a fun piece – and out of all the mugs/glasses/cups that I have it is one of the better representations of the Hulk. 

Vinyl Hulk Figure (1997)

The same company that made the Transformation Statue made this figure.  He has a huge humpback – makes him look like Quasimodo.  There’s a comic starring the Hulk and Quasimodo that I have – when I find it I will post it.  Applause made a few Hulk things this year that I will be posting – luckily, this is the ugliest.  I took this to camp with me one year.  I was the counsellor and I made the Hulk our mascot.  True story.  Another true story is at that camp counsellors had to make a camp wide speech to the campers highlighting one of the camp ideals.  My speech was about loyalty and my example was Betty Banner.  I may be obsessed. 

Tranformations Statue (1997)

This big mutha of a statue is the very first statue I bought.  It took me months of putting $10 here and $20 there to Bill, the guy behind the register at New England Comics in Brockton, to finally get this guy out of hock – but it was worth it. This is # 652 out of 1500 There is a grey version but I chose to get the green because it was my first statue.  My sister once dropped this down the stairs – and the resin bastard survived without a scratch.  Truly one of my favorite pieces.
