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.
3 Profiles - One Statue
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.
Green Transformation - Grey Transformation
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.
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.
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.
