Guardians of the Galaxy was the best movie this year and Rocket Raccoon was a huge part of that. Rocket of course made his first major Marvel universe appearance in an issue of the Incredible Hulk. The figure was kinda hard to find and I finally stumbled across it at a store. Not much articulation but still neat to have a Rocket action figure. Poor Groot, I only have his head. Going to try and buy the other pieces and parts on him on eBay to make a complete Groot.
Wishing everyone a happy and safe New Year’s Eve and hoping it is a great, successful, fun 2015 for everyone! My main goals for 2015 related to the Hulk are:
-Get at least one Incredible Hulk cover (I have this one already completed and should hopefully be able to show that in the next couple of weeks)
-Get a Mark Brooks Planet Hulk commission at HeroesCon
-Get another great early Sal Buscema Incredible Hulk original art page (issues 196-235 or so)
Disney has released some new images from the upcoming Avengers 2 Age of Ultron movie that feature the Hulk going up against Iron Man’s Hulkbuster armor. They also released some images including some background on the Vision. Take a look at what is written about the Vison but be warned it is a little bit of a spoiler.
Tim Roth was doing an interview and this interesting tidbit came up:
Crave Online has an interview with actor Tim Roth where he revealed that Abomination, the villain he played in 2008’s “Incredible Hulk,” nearly made a return appearance in “Avengers: Age of Ultron.”
“They were going to do it,” said Roth about Abomination’s return. “They did do that. They were thinking, in ‘The Avengers 2’ or something. There was a movie we could do that at one point, but way back when. It just kind of got swept under the carpet I guess. That would be hilarious.”
That would have been cool if the Abomination was in the movie.
Very funny video about a guy finding a pair of magical Hulk hands. Just watch and enjoy.
My big Christmas present should be here in a few weeks but I did get a few Incredible Hulk gifts from the family. First up is the Hallmark Keepsake “Hulk Smash” ornament with sound. The sculpting on the figure is actually pretty good, worth picking up. Also from Hallmark is the Itty Bittys Hulk stuffed figure that I posted a few weeks back. A cute little stuffed Hulk figure for that little Hulk fan in all of us. Last is a Christmas tree ornament from Target, A Kawaii Hulk. A little scary looking but every Christmas tree needs more Hulk ornaments.
I hope tomorrow is a great and awesome Christmas day for everyone! Hope you get all the Hulk toys, comics, artwork and items you could ever wish for! Have a incredible day everyone!!!!
It’s a good thing I don’t collect every single Incredible Hulk item anymore because I would so buy this. I have seen some of the other Marvel heroes in a smaller size but never a Hulk and then one the way back from a vacation last week, we stopped at one of those cheap knock-off places and low and behold what did I find but a very large Hulk Beanie Ballz. Nuff said.
I have seen images of them from around the country at various malls and Lego stores but I finally got a chance to see one in person. At a Lego store in Florida, they had this cool very large Incredible Hulk figure made from Legos. Would it be too much to ask for one of these for Christmas?
