I was able to pick up this great looking Hulk mini statue produced by EAGLEMOSS. This is the 4th piece I have been able to pick up and they keep getting better with the sculpting and paints. See below for an image with all 4 that have been produced. In addition to the figure, you also get a great magazine jam packed with great Hulk imagery and facts. I highly recommend this piece.
Happy birthday to the greatest Hulk artist to ever pick up a pencil, our pal Sal Buscema. My appreciation of Sal’s art is a well that runs deep so here’s hoping that Sal had a smashing 79th birthday! Please feel free to check the ‘our pal Sal’ link above for some good reading on Sal and,(if you haven’t already) be sure to check out the incredible podcast that was posted in 2013.
The new Avengers trailer is amazing. It looks like there is a dark element that takes over the Hulk. Is it Scarlet Witch? An infinity stone? Has Loki returned? Time will tell but the end result is what appears to be a truly savage, mindless Hulk in fully enraged smash mode. Tony will get to deploy his Hulk-buster armor and the battle scene looks really good. I have captured a few stills of the Hulk that shows Hulk initially confused and struggling to recognize Natasha and then after he has lost control. One of the images puts me in mind of Sal Buscema and Gerry Talaoc’s Hulk – see the image below. I am really stoked to see this movie – May 1 can’t come soon enough.
This great! Check out the video below of a story of some local flooding when the newscaster noticed a giant Hulk movie statue in someone’s back yard. At that point the owner of the home comes out and does a pretty good Lou Ferrigno flex pose for the camera.
So … the real question is … is this one of the Hulk nuts around here? Fiddy – I know you have one of these!
He does, barely coming in at number 8. It is nice to see Sal recognized (as he is usually vastly underrated it seems) and I obviously think he should be higher on the list. Check out the article below for more information.
