Hulk & Betty Mini Mates (2008)

Here’s the last 2-pack of this set.  Of course it’s Betty and Hulk – and am I wrong in thinking that Betty looks kind of hot?  Even without a nose?  Anyways – Hulk’s hair looks a mess!  You’d think that with Betty they would make the Hulk look all suave and stuff – combed hair, maybe put a tiny toy rose between his clenched teeth.  I really like this line – except for the Hulk’s arms.  They look too skinny.  Like a body builder who pumps up his chest only and still has tiny little spaghetti arms.  But this isn’t just regular old Hulk – this is battle damaged Hulk!  See the lines on him?  That’s the damage from the battle.

Blonsky and Abomination Mini-Mates (2008)

This is the best Mini-Mates set for one reason – it comes with accessories!  Everything can be made better with accessories!  I love the little Blonsky.  He and his unshaven little face comes with night vision goggles and a gun.  Abomination actually looks pretty good too – amazingly.  I think this version grew on me just a bit – but I’m still jonesing for the classic Abomination. 

The detail they pu into these little guys are sweet!  Look at Abomination’s little toe nails!  Can anyone explain why these sets come with extra little feet?  I’m not really sure what they are for.  Anyways, Abomination’s back bones that are shooting out of his skin are doing the same on this toy.  Art Asylum has always done a nice job with this line – Mini Mates have become huge for a good reason – they are some of the coolest little toys ever!

Battle Damaged Hulk & General Ross Mini-Mates (2008)

Here is the second Mini-Mates set that I am showing.  Am I in the minority to have wanted Sam Elliot back as General Ross?  I mean, that man had the mustache that was born for this role!  Listen, William Hurt did fine – but Elliot was perfect!  Let’s put this to a poll, shall we?  Why not?  We haven’t had a poll for a while!

Anyways, this set is fine.  The battle damaged Hulk looks a bit ruffed up – but more like Pig Pen from Peanuts rather than a beat up Hulk.  I do like the sneer on Hulk’s face.  I would’ve liked to see a bit of extras thrown into these sets.  The Abomination/Blonsky set is the only one that has extras.  They could have thrown something else into this set like… ummm… oh!  What about… well, this isn’t as easy as I thought.  What the hell did Gen. Ross have?  He didn’t really use a gun.  What about a little radio?  That’s it!  A radio!

Sonic Destruction Hulk vs. Hulkbuster 2-Pack (2008)

I have so much backed up to show you… I just got the Hulk Movie Regener8r’s at Kay-Bee tonight and realized I haven’t finished showing you the movie figures that I have.  This is the last 2-pack – and coincidently the last of the smaller Hulk figures that has been made!  What a great trip it has been, huh?  A lot of people liked the 2003 Hulk figures better – but personally I enjoyed these figures more.  Sure, the 2003 figures were bigger – but these had a wider range of figures – and no Hulk-Dogs!  Let me know what you thought by participating in this week’s pole!:

I have quite the line-up to show you next including 2 very rare Hulk Kits and a custom repaint.  I will be posting these in the upcoming weeks as well as the greatest Activity Book ever!  Maybe I will post that Friday… 🙂

Interesting…

I told you I had a great weekend… and I was stunned when I walked into Dartmouth’s Wal-mart and saw The Incredible Hulk wave 3 figures!  But even more curious?  The Hulk I ordered from Hasbro.com was packed opposite then the ones I found in the store. 

I have no idea why – and thankgoodness this isn’t the late 90’s when they would consider this a variant.  Seriously, this would be considered a variant.  It would say something like “Right packed boulder Hulk” and “Left packed boulder Hulk”.  They would both be going for like $100 until people realized there was no difference in the packages and they would plummet to $5 overnight.  Don’t believe me?  Well, who remembers – I’m sure there is some of you – who remembers the Power of the Force .01/.02 variants?  The figure, card, everything was the same – except on the back of the card, near the UPC label, there was a sequence of numbers that ended with either a .01 or a .02 – and people made a huge deal out of it.  Why?  Because they had too much time on their hands and took action figures a little too serioulsy…

Abomination vs. Hulkbuster 2-pack (2008)

This is one of the two 2-packs that have appeared on the shelves.  It may be the last wave of these we will see so cherish them.  I like these 2-packs – and is it just me or is that Hulkbuster using the Abomination Blaster from Nerf?  He does know those are toys, right?  You really can’t take down the Abomination with a toy – maybe someone should have told him before he pulled that thing out.  Maybe he’s the new guy and it’s a little new guy hazing!  Sick little game.  Funny, but sick.

These figures might’ve sold better if they made these figures variants  – just a slightly different version of the figures we have.  But, hey – it is pretty cool that they gave them the toys that we can play with too!

Mega Blocks Hulk Playset (2008)

I promised the coolest thing ever – and I deliver!  At least I think it’s the coolest thing ever.  The Hulk Head is a playset – it opens in the back – it can also hold all the open legos once you’ve opened all the packages.  Actually my favorite part to this playset is the tiny Hulk and Abomination figures that come with it.  Ever since I saw the Spiderman playsets I was waiting patiently for these to appear in my local Toys R Us.  They never did – I imagined that they never made them – but then, much to my surprise, I saw this on ebay not too long ago and thankfully was the only bidder!  You can set up the whole last scene from the movie and play it out right in your own backyard! 

The Abomination’s spikes on his back are so big that it makes him look like a punk rocker and, is it just me or does the Hulk look like a green, strung out Keith Richards?  They both are pretty hard to stand without the support of a lego base – well, no wonder!  Look how little their legs are!  Cripes, if they were really like this they would be dwarfs (or midgets, depending on how politically incorrect you want to get)

Yes, I will say it once more – this is absolutely my favorite item to come out of the Hulk merchandise – at least, so far…
