I will try to post all of the other gamma goodness I was able to snag in 2016 – but in fairness, 2016 was a really tough year! I am focusing on saving to replace some of the more missed pieces from my collection – mostly the comics I had to let go of – so a lot of my funds have been diverted to that. I still have taken a lot of suggestions from friends and the people who post on this site – thanks for the emails! One friend in particular has been essential in keeping me up to date on new Hulk goodness – so a special thank you goes out to Gammapup, aka Mike, who texts me some great pics of the new Hulk merch he finds.
One of the more fun pieces is this stuffed 2 foot monstrosity that truly catches the attention of anyone who sees it. I noticed the Captain America and Iron Man stuffed figures as well – but none of those are even close to as cool as this is! I think the stuffed Hulks with plastic molded heads are way cooler than Hulks that are completely plush – this is no exception! I even enjoy the title “Jumbo Hulk” for no other reason than it makes me laugh. Who else out there got this?
My daughter calls her stuffed animals “softs” and I think it’s absolutely brilliant so I am stealing it. These two Hulk softs were released a while ago and actually featured on the last video I did – but I realized I never posted them on the site. The soft above is the better of the two, IMO, because I love the cartoony look of him. Of course, when they were released they were $29.99 and I absolutely refused to pay $30 for these stuffed Hulks. Actually, the one below I wasn’t going to bother even picking up because I wasn’t a fan of the more realistic look of it. Then, what I call “The Great Purge” happened at Toys R Us and Target where they put everything on clearance to make space for the Christmas merchandise. This happens every year, of course, but this year I actually had items to pick up! Each of these softs only cost me about $6.00. They are sort of cool too with the sound effects when you shake the hell out of them.
This also came in the lot of Hulk figures I picked up – along with the stretch and the Kostas – now I know I told you that the 2003 Hulk stuff wasn’t my favorite – but I gots to say… I just gots to admit – I am really warming up to it – the more I find! I remember when the first movie came out and Hulk was everywhere – it was both a blessing and a curse… a curse because everywhere I looked there was new Hulk items to be picked up and it became almost too overwhelming – I think my brain just shut down!
Hulk grits his teeth when he's constipated...
Little plush Hulk fist...
The one thing I did love – and was so upset about missing this time around – was the Hershey’s Chocolate syrup, that made the milk green! Man, oh man was that stuff great! But then again there was so much stuff out there that just didn’t last the test of time – and I’m not upset about missing out on that stuff… Back to this guy – He’s freakin huge! He easily towers over any of the other plush Hulks I have – that’s another thing the 2003 movie merchandise got right – just how BIG everything should be.
Hulk is littler than other Hulk! Hulk doesn't seem to like that...
Stuffed Hulk 2003
Sorry – this should have been posted earlier but Lost was on last night. I love that show. So, here’s a quick item for Thursday – one of the sorriest looking stuffed Hulks ever! It’s disturbing how strange looking he is. He’s puffy – with Richard Grieco spiky hair and a creepy molester smile. Man, this thing is so ugly! So whay do I have it? How could you not get one of the worst Hulk ever created?
GAH! Close up...
Thought I would show you a little something fun here – especially after that harsh review of Hulk #5 – but I got this little guy yesterday. There’s something sweet about this little retarded Hulk. He looks like one of those flipper babies. I love the real hair and the huge stuffed muscles! I think this very ugly Hulk is going to displayed PROUDLY in the Hulk room – right next to the Sideshow PF Hulk!
Look at his little angry expression! He’s trying to be intimidating but he’s just so ugly it comes off as creepy. Poor creepy little Hulk. Go get one and give him a good home. A good home where you’ll ridicule him everyday!
his little flipper feet!
