At the C2E2 Comic convention this weekend, Diamond Select showed an upcoming Minimates wave which includes a Mandroid. While the first appearance of the Mandroid was not in a Hulk comic book, the Hulk did come up against Mandroids a fair amount of times in the 200’s. Definitely going to be part of my collection.
Looks like for the second Civil War, the Hulk will actually be participating in the event. The cover is by the great Alan Davis and it looks like a young Bruce Banner on the cover, not Amadeus Cho so curious as to what the storyline will be.
It was my birthday a few days ago and my girls got me some cool Hulk stuff. They got a poster of Alex Ross’s Incredible Hulk issue 500 cover along with a Marvel comics shirt with a bunch of Marvel heroes on it. They also got me a really cool Hulk pin with Sal Buscema artwork from Universal Studios, a small Hulk bobble-head from Universal Studios and a Hulk Funko keychain. Have to love it when your kids know exactly what to get you.
Target has a new Incredible Hulk t-shirt with a classic Hulk image on it. Very cool retro style Hulk, go buy it now.
Okay, I was never happy with Rick Jones turning into A-Bomb in the comic book, I was glad he got depowered. In the animated series The Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H., A-Bomb is the comedy act of the group so I am sure he is popular with the small kids. Still, any Hulk related action figure is a good action figure from my standpoint. The Mashers series must be pretty popular as they are really popping out a lot of these.
The Masher figures seem to be a pretty good success for Hasbro, where you can take different parts of heroes and villains and put them on another character. Now they have come out with micro versions where the characters are squished down to mini size. The parts from the mini figures will actually fit on the larger figures also. The Hulk comes is a set vs Loki, I guess so you can re-enact the classic scene from the first Avengers movie. He also has an enlarged fist for some reason. Like the recent Lego mini Hulk figure, I love that they are putting expressions on the Hulk’s face. I kinda like this little Hulk figure. There is an Anti-Venom single figure that comes with the Red Hulk head but I just can’t get myself to pay for it so if anyone has it that wants to donate it to me, just let me know!
Who doesn’t love little mini figures? I sure do and now Lego has made even minier figures. Lego has just released Mighty Micro sets of Marvel superheroes with vehicles. The figures are actually smaller than regular Lego figures where the legs don’t actually bend. I am not really sure why the Hulk came with a turkey leg, he must be really hungry. You have to love the Hulk’s expression and his cool hair style. The set comes with an Ultron also but I gave that one to my daughter.
