I like the cars that offer an actual image of the character – even something from the comics – but really, anything would do! I don’t exactly mind these cars because the color scheme still screams the Hulk but really, it also could be the color scheme of a number of characters including the Green Goblin, Donatello from TMNT, etc… That’s why I prefer to have a cool picture portrayed on the car itself. Either way, thank you to my wife for picking this little guy up for me at Target the other day!
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!

Here is something I should have posted when I got it – but knowing me, I forgot. I have so many things to post… and I will get to it – but the great thing about this 2-pack is that it was sent to me. Someone sent me this a while back and I meant to post it and thank them – even though I have no idea who the sender was. I have suspicions that it was Grey (am I right?) and in that case THANK YOU SO MUCH! I have not seen this around my area so I never even knew it existed.
I have a few cars to show off – slightly different – but they came in a huge 10 pack of cars and I have the Hulk and Abomination van loose. I will post them sometime in the future… but again – whoever sent this – and I am pretty sure it was Grey – thank you!
Die Cast Hulk Car
This car will always have a soft spot in my car for the reason that one Mr. Stephen Yarish sent it to me. You know Steve, right? Even if you think you don’t – you do – because he’s the guy who runs THE Incredible Hulk website:
If you haven’t visited his website yet – then it’s time to spread the word – he has a Hulk collection that even makes me drool. Thanks to Stephen for this little metal Hulk car that seriously rocks! Even better – it was a gift that he sent to me out of nowhere! It was accompanied my a Hulk washcloth (that I already posted a WHILE back) and a Hulk toothbrush. What a class guy Stephen is. Class act all the way! Now visit his site and spread the love!
2003 was certainly the year of the Hulk – never mind that the movie was met with disappointment, both with critics and viewers – never mind that the movie was a box office failure – nevermind that some of the most disappointing Hulk merchandise and art was released in this year – BUT in every store, including grocery stores and clothing stores, you saw the Jade Giant! He was EVERYWHERE! He was on Hershey’s Syrup for goodness sake! He turned milk green! But you take the good with the bad.
Hulk Dumps like a Truck... Truck... Truck
The bad includes some of these cars that came out. I picked these up at Rubber Chicken Comics. The more I visit that store the more I like it. I found little Hulk treasures almost every time I stop in there. Haven’t been there in a few months though – and with the Boston Comic Con coming up at the end of October – Is anyone going by the way? – I will most likely be there later on Sunday. I wish I could spend an entire day there but work is too busy to take time off. Anyways… yay! Cars!
