Bowen Designs Joe Fixit Statue Shipping

For those of you who ordered the very cool looking Mr. Fixit statue from Bowen Designs, the good news is that it will be shipping very shortly. Based on the pictures I have seen of someone who has already received their statue (as shown below), the paint job looks great. This is an overall great statue from Bowen Designs and would look good with your Hulk collection.

Ultimate Avengers DVD Exclusive Minimates Incredible Hulk Figure

This actually came out a few years ago but I never got it and I just recently bought it on eBay. When Marvel released their animated Ultimate Avengers DVD, the 2 set had this exclusive Incredible Hulk minimate. This is the exact same Hulk as the first Minimate Hulk ever released but they just used a different color scheme on him. Yes, even though it is the same figure, I needed to have it because the coloring is different. Yes, I have issues and I am okay with that.

Avengers Incredible Hulk Minimate Figure

The Avengers movie is all kinds of awesome and while there are not as many Hulk toys as I would have liked, they did release a set of Avengers specific Minimates figures. Of course they have a Hulk figure and he does look pretty good. These are the newer Minimates where they are bulking up the arms and legs. This also comes with a different head you can use. You have to love the Minimates figures.

Marvel Super Hero Squad Online Game Featuring the Hulk

The Marvel Super Hero Squad line of action figures may not be around anymore but you can still see the tiny versions of our favorite Marvel superheroes with a new online game named after the line. This is a community based game where you have to do tasks and you can talk to other people who are also playing the game. Fun for small kids to play with, I know my ten year old daughter enjoys it. You can play as the Marvel Super Hero Squad version of the Hulk and Planet Hulk as shown below. And they just added an Avengers movie version of the Hulk. Give the game at try at www.heroup.com

Incredible Hulk Exclusive Lego Store Figure

Between May 16th and May 30th, if you bought at least $50 worth of Legos from a Lego store or Legostore.com, you would get an exclusive Hulk figure different than the Hulk figure that came with the Avengers Lego set. This Hulk is just normal Lego minifigure size but is still cool.

Lego Hulk’s Helicarrier Breakout Figure

When Lego announced they had gotten the Marvel license, I was wondering what they would do with the Hulk. Would they make him the same size as all the other Lego figures and size him up a bit. The good news is they bulked him up a lot. He is huge compared to the other Lego figures but he did loose articulation. His feet are stuck in one position. Still very cool to own a Hulk Lego figure.

Smart Hulk Minimates Disney Store Exclusive

When Disney bought Marvel Comics, you just knew it was a matter of time before the Disney store would be selling Marvel merchandise. The good news is that the Disney store features some exclusive stuff, like this Smart Hulk Minimates figure which comes in a 2-pack. Very cool looking Hulk, he even comes with two rocks. Although since this is the Smart (or Merged) Hulk, he really should have a really big gun.

Ernie Chan 1940-2012

The comic world lost another great artist yesterday, Ernie Chan. For those who don’t know who he is, he was a penciler and inker who worked for Marvel and DC in the 70’s and 80’s mostly. He worked on Conan, Dr. Strange but for me, I will always remember his time working as inker with Sal Buscema in the early 200’s of the series. That was when I first started to really collect Hulk comic books and the look and feel of the Hulk at that period will always be “the” look of the Hulk. Ernie Chan will be missed and I will always appreciate what he did to help make the Hulk looks so incredible.
