Is it just me or are these Sideshow Hulk statues getting worse and at the same time more and more pricey? This Maquette sports some really tight spandex and an odd looking “mid-run” pose. For anyone getting this $750 behemoth I only hope that you will get a perfect piece as SS has been having QC issues that are unforgivable with no real re-course if the pieces go bad. Here’s to hoping! Click the image to get more info.
Who is getting this one? What do you think?
Grey Hulk Maquette
Close up of this bad boy!
I would love to have every variation of every Hulk statue there is out there – in fact, there isn’t too many I don’t have – but when I saw this re-paint I just had to get it! I was impressed with how nicely this sculpt lent itself to the grey Hulk. I’m extremely pleased with this paint job. Bought in Reading at Comically Speaking, the owner is a nice guy who owns a ONE OF A KIND Hulk statue that I will show you next.
I have a regular version of this statue – and since there is only 3000 of these maquettes made – that makes it 2999 green versions and 1 grey version! Factoring in how many have been damaged or abandoned it’s estimated, by me, that there is actually only 2996 or 2997 left!
What up playa? Kickin it old school!
This is # 1476 – so count that one out now! I really like how the painter highlighted the veins on this Maquette with a light purple color. With the new Marvel Select figure out I’m not sure if the Maquette’s worth will hold up over time. There was a time that the Maquette was selling for around $200 on ebay – the latest has been hovering just over $120. Funny enough – one just sold for $62.00 – but it didn’t come with the box. People are so finicky about that. They want the box with the statue! It’s weird, you’d think it’d be all about the statue – but they want the whole package! Anyways, I’m very happy with this piece – I hope you like looking at it as much as I like having it!
Yowza! Like it? Love it? You know you want it!
This is the largest Maquette that Diamond Select has released – and even though that is true – it’s one of the smaller Hulk statues released this year standing a quaint 9 inches tall. Scuplted by Gabriel Marquez, the face looks a whole lot better in person, although why does it seem like he’s auditioning for a Crest commercial?
This piece is limited to 3,000 and mine is 628. The Marvel Select Hulk coming out in March is designed after this Hulk – and I know some people are bummed that yet another Hulk figure is coming out on the Marvel Select line – but I say – the more Hulks the better.
You may soon have this toy in your collection! Marvel has released some cool figures under the Select line – but this is one of the coolest! Based on the Maquette that Diamond Select put out earlier – check it out here – as well as the sculpters blog here. So if you didn’t have the $90 to spend on this now you can still own the figure for $20. You can bet I will post mine as soon as I get it. Click on the image to see the article about it.
