This has actually been out a while but I never got around to picking it up until now even though it is a cool little bobble head figure. I wasn’t quite sold on these Pop! figures when they first came out but they did grow on me. They released another version later with a darker green color for the Avengers movie. I think they actually have about a million different Pop figures now from different movies, cartoons, comic books, and tv shows.
Peter David has had a long career in comic books and he has done some great, amazing work but then again I might be a little biased because he did such great work on the Incredible Hulk comic book. Comic book resources put a short article together of Peter’s greatest accomplishments over the years which of course includes his work on the Hulk comic book and actually calls out specifically Future Imperfect on it’s own as an accomplishment. When Peter came on the Hulk comic book way back when, Marvel wasn’t really sure what they wanted to do with the character and he had just been kind of pushed to the back of the company. Peter David came along and took the character in unexpected directions and really made the Hulk book a book that everyone had to read. Take a look at the article: Peter David

“I became the very thing I hated most in life. I am the Red Hulk.”
First in line from an all-new Marvel Comics Hulk series, Sideshow Collectibles presents the Red Hulk Premium Format™ Figure.
Born into a family with a proud tradition of military service, General Thaddeus Ross rapidly earned a reputation among his troops as a great leader in combat, and the nickname ‘Thunderbolt’ for his ability to execute lightning-quick battle strike tactics. But when a career devoted to hunting the Incredible Hulk turned into a dangerous obsession, Ross ultimately became his own worst nightmare – consumed by vengeance, he was transformed into the unstoppable Red Hulk! Crashing onto the scene in one quarter scale, Rulk tears up the terrain, leaving broken Hulkbuster armor wasted at his feet. Fantastically crafted with remarkable attention to detail, the Exclusive Red Hulk comes with two interchangeable portraits to depict him taunting opponents with a savage grin, or blinded with unbridled rage over the ‘X’ where Thor’s hammer landed its mighty blow. Quite literally one of the hottest Marvel villains of all time, the Red Hulk Premium Format™ Figure is an outstanding addition to any Hulk or Marvel collection.

There are a few hours left in the day so better hurry over to teefury.com and get your own Rocket Raccoon and Groot t-shirt ala Calvin and Hobbes. I worked with artist Jeffro Kilpatrick on the design (he did all the artwork, I got no skills). It’s a cool shirt to wear to the premier so go grab one before they are gone!
If you are not familiar with Teefury, it is a website that sells t-shirts for one day only based on designs submitted by artists. You get it that one day and then it’s gone. There are other t-shirt sites but Teefury.com is the first and the best. Let me say that I have no artistic ability but I have ideas so I collaborated with an artist and we came up with an awesome idea based on the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy movie. Please make sure to go to teefury.com tomorrow and buy a shirt to support me! Here is a sneak peak of what the shirt is going to look like.
Sideshow Collectibles releases videos with sneak peaks of upcoming statues they are working on. One video showed a glimpse of a World War Hulk sitting on a throne sketch. Needless to say, this would have been completely awesome. Looks like it may have been based a bit off of the classic Finch cover of the WWH Hulk on a throne. Well unfortunately it will not be. A person from Sideshow came on Statue Forum and had this comment:
The sitting on throne piece was our original design, but done at 1:4 scale, that throne would be stupid big so we nixed it.
Wouldve been an awesome piece, not saying it FOR SURE wont happen in the future, but yah, opted out for standing.
Well, that’s a bummer. At 1/4 scale, this would have been huge and awesome!
I posted some information yesterday about the Red Hulk that Sideshow Collectibles is going to be put up for sale starting next week. We now have pictures of all the different versions of the Hulk and the Red Hulk. The Green Hulk version looks like it will have two heads, one based on Sal Buscema and one based on Herb Trimpe. The grey Hulk looks to have a removable orange shirt as an exclusive just like in his very first appearance. I was hoping that they would remove the bulging veins from the green and grey Hulks but it looks like they are there. Not really feeling either of the Green Hulk faces with the body but the Grey Hulk looks pretty good. I will have to wait til statues are actually delivered to decide if I am going to pick any of these up.
Last year, I reported on a series of Hulk statues that Sideshow Collectibles would be doing: see here. It has taken a while but the first statue is finally set to go up for purchase. And unfortunately it is the Red Hulk. I have never cared for this character in the comic book. He is okay in the Thunderbolts comic as part of a team but he just never connected with me. But I do know there are some Red Hulk or Rulk fans as they are also known out there so they will be excited to see the upcoming statue. I am more looking forward to seeing the green Hulks. Keep checking my site as the statue is supposed to go up for sale next week.
