Marvel Legends Infinite Series Avengers Age of Ultron Incredible Hulk Action Figure

I am always glad to see a new Incredible Hulk figure hit the shelves, no matter what it looks like. Lucky for me this is a good looking figure. Actually it is a great looking figure. The body of the sculpt is a good sculpt, it’s a pretty basic body but still good detail. The key to this figure is his face. A bad face sculpt can really ruin a figure but the sculptor on this figure did an amazing job. Sometimes the prototype figure ends up looking better than the actual figure but in this case the face looks better than the prototype shown on the back. Bravo on this figure. The figure is a little tricky to stand up, he has to lean over a little bit but not too bad. Go out and try to find this figure now!

Marvel Legends Infinite Series Hellcat Action Figure

The latest wave of Legends figures is finally hitting stores and I was lucky enough to find a set at Target. Had to pick up this Hellcat figure as she was a Defender for quite some time, many times with the Hulk, so it needs to be added to my collection. A really nice sculpt except she is a little hard to get to stand up. It seems that a lot of the women Legends figures that I have gotten have a hard time standing straight. Still a good looking figure. Comes with pieces to a build of figure of Thanos of his head and one arm.

Herb Trimpe, Artist on the Incredible Hulk Comic Book, Passes Away Today

When I was a 6 year old boy, I was very shy. Actually I would say extremely shy. I still remember walking down to our neighbors garage sale and buying Incredible Hulk #170 for a nickel and just being amazed at this green creature that had all this strength but just wanted to be left alone. I got completely sucked into comics and into the Hulk comic book. Herb Trimpe’s artwork was my first introduction to the world of Marvel comics and the Incredible Hulk. He drew the Hulk with anger, sadness, and every other emotion and I loved every page. He drew other comic books like GI Joe, Godzilla, and others but he will always be remembered for his incredible body of work on the Hulk comic book. Even though he wasn’t drawing too much anymore, he was still going to comic book conventions when he was able and glad to sketch and talk to any and all fans.

Herb Trimpe passed away today from a heart attack and the art world is at a loss for losing such a comic artist pioneer and great person.

A Planet Hulk Movie Can Happen So Says Mark Ruffalo

During a discussion with IGN in regards to the upcoming Avengers Age of Ultron movie, this exchange occurred:

Mark Ruffalo: “I think there’s a lot of places to go with him [Hulk].”

Scarlett Johansson: “Like where?”

IGN: “Space?”

Ruffalo: “Well he’s going to space. Yeah, I mean there’s some talk of maybe Planet Hulk.”

IGN: “Would you like to see that?”

Ruffalo: “I’d be completely interested in entertaining that.”

So if Mark is up for a Planet Hulk movie and every single Hulk fan is up for a Planet Hulk movie, let’s get going Marvel!!

Funko Pop! Age of Ultron Incredible Hulk Vinyl Bobble-head

A few years ago, a company called Funko started releasing these little bobble-heads with black, round eyes. Needless to say, they instantly became hugely popular and there are Pop! figures for every popular movie or tv show out there. With the Avengers Age of Ultron coming up, Funko has started to release their figures related to that movie. Found the Hulk at Target this week and strangely enough I didn’t see any of the other figures from the wave. This Hulk figure looks just as good as the first Hulk they put out. He looks even more angry than the first one, go out and get one now!
