Steven Yarish – the man who runs the greatest Hulk site ever (and that’s saying a lot because I really love my site!) told me where to find the mega-blocks Hulk stuff. Walgreens. By the way – Steve’s site is in my blogroll – it’s called the Engine of Destruction – if you haven’t checked it out do yourself a favor and do so right now! I never shop at Walgreens, so I was very happy that someone told me to go in there, otherwise I would never of had this. There’s one more set, a larger one, that I haven’t located yet -but I’m not really too worried about it. I have the big big one with the two figures.

It’s funny they always stick the Hulk in a car or something because when was the last time that the Hulk had to go somewhere and thought – “Where did I leave my car?” Exactly! Never! Hulk has huge sausage fingers too! Can you imagine him having to handle keys? It’s like trying to type on a cell phone with gloves on.

- Incredible Hulk Mega Blocks Playset

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…
Hulk and Spiderman paired up again. You’d think that these two were friends or something! But they never actually got together in the comics and fought crime. They’ve been guest-stars in each other’s comics and even helped the Wood-God escape together – but they’ve never displayed what I would call friendship. In fact, I bet Spiderman, when he’s in the hallways with his “cool ” friends doesn’t even talk to Hulk when he says Hi. I guess he’s just too cool! What-ever Spiderman. You are so not cooler than me! – I mean Hulk!
Trust me when I tell you that I searched everywhere – every toy store from here to New Hampshire – and no one ever had this in stock. I once found a Spider-man figure, it gave me hope, and I searched forever in that store, but to no avail. I had to settle for finding a buyer off ebay who wasn’t charging like crazy to ship. This figure is pretty cool though. It’s held together by magnets and comes with a “Build your own” missile pack. If you combine the Spider-man and Wolverine packs then you can build the Ultimate AttakGlider (their spelling, not mine). It was also very hard to take a good picture of this because the backing is silver. The flash comes shining back at you like nothing you’ve ever seen! Almost blinded me.
