Funko Releases Images of Incredible Hulk Figures and Toys for Avengers Age of Ultron Movie

I already posted yesterday about the Hot Topic grey exclusive Pop Hulk figure, and now Funko has officially released images of the entire Avengers related toys they are making and there are a bunch of Hulks! Those include a regular Hulk Pop figure, another set of Mystery Mini’s although they don’t show what the variants will be so hopefully the Hulk will be one of them, a Hulk keychain, a Hulk bobblehead, and a finally a Hulk Fabrikation which is a plush type toy. They have done some other Marvel Fabrikations and I am glad to see them finally come out with a Hulk. Looks like most of these will be available in March or April so be on the lookout!

Happy Birthday to Bill Bixby from the Incredible Hulk TV Show

On March 10, 1979, the Incredible Hulk tv show premiered and I was blown away. I had already been a huge fan of the comic book and now I was able to see my favorite comic book character on the television, how incredible (pun intended) is that. To top it off, that was also my 10th birthday. We all know Lou Ferrigno played the Hulk but Bill Bixby brought the character of David Bruce Banner to life. He brought Banner’s sadness and desire to stay in one location and have a life to the screen in an amazing way. Bill had done previous roles on tv but this role will probably always be his most well known. How many of us have seen him walking down the highway at the end of an episode with the classic music playing. Bill was born on January 22, 1934 but sadly passed away in 1993. Great actor and I thank him for what he did for helping bring the Hulk to many, many people.

Marvel Select Avengers Age of Ultron Incredible Hulk Action Figure

First photos have appeared of the Marvel Select Incredible Hulk action figure for the Avengers Age of Ultron movie coming soon (but not soon enough). The overall sculpt looks pretty good except his mouth seems a little off. It just doesn’t seem right for some reason but the rest of the figure looks good. With the other Marvel Select Hulk figures, I am sure this will weigh about 50 lbs. The figure should be available around early May when the movie is released.

Hot Topic Exclusive Grey Incredible Hulk Pop Figure for Avengers Age of Ultron Movie

Funko is of course making a line of Pop figures for the upcoming Avengers Age of Ultron movie and someone got a sneak peak of the figures and it looks like there is going to be a grey version of the Incredible Hulk exclusive to Hot Topic. The Hulk has red around his eyes similar to the red that appears around the Hulk’s eyes in the trailer when he is fighting Iron Man in his Hulkbuster armor. Some people are thinking that the Hulk might turn grey in the movie but I doubt that, this is just a reason to make an exclusive version by changing the color without having to create anything new. Regardless I will be picking it up.

Mike Choi New Artist on Hulk Comic Book?

It is well known that Mark Bagley will be leaving as the artist on the Hulk book but Marvel has not yet announced who will be taking his place. Mike Choi just put us this Incredible Hulk image on his Facebook page. No comments or anything. It could be him just working on a commission and doing some practicing drawing but Mike is a great artist, I wouldn’t mind him taking over the art chores for the book. And of course if he wanted to donate this piece of artwork to my collection, I sure wouldn’t object.

Playskool Incredible Hulk & Iron Man Stark Tech Armor Hulkbuster Toy Figures

Sure they can call it just Stark Tech Armor but we all know it’s really just the Hulkbuster Armor. This is definitely one of my favorite non-Hulk toys, the Hulkbuster armor just looks really cool. Yes I know it’s made for little kids but it still looks great. I like these versions of the Hulk for the new lines also. For this one, you can push him down and he springs forward. If he hits the front of the Hulkbuster armor, it pops open and Iron Man comes flying out.

Mark Ruffalo Tweets About Bruce Banner in Upcoming Avengers Movie

Mark Ruffalo, who plays Bruce Banner in the Avengers of course, tweeted the following comments today:

“Banner’s been living in Stark Tower. They’ve been working side by side and Bruce has his own lab now. He’s doing work that augments Tony’s own, which could lead to an experiment going wrong…”

Hmmmm…..what could he be talking about.
