Planet Hulk Event Dial #E100 Heroclix

PHheroclix-finalIn honor of Thor: Ragnarok coming soon….

I present the Planet Hulk Event Dial Heroclix. This limited edition dial includes not one, not two, but FOUR characters…all featured in the Planet Hulk storyline. The characters being Green Scar (Hulk), Korg, Miek, and the Silver Savage (Silver Surfer).

This item was released for the Marvel Mutations and Monsters booster set in or around 2007. It also seems these figures were produced separately as well for their own heroclix.

This is one of the coolest heroclix items I own. I managed to snag it at a comic convention for about $20. If you love the Hulk, or just enjoy the Planet Hulk story-line I feel this item is worth it for the shelf. The sculpting and poses are just about the best you could ask for. It’s also a fairly size-able piece. So you need room for it.

Current Ebay prices have it priced around $20-35.

Cosmic Hulk #045 Heroclix

You have seen him gray, you have seen him green. But I bet you never knew he was BLUE!

Yep, that is correct. There was a blue Hulk for all of one issue, and no it was not within the normal Hulk story run.

cosmichulk045

During a five issues series titled ‘Captain Universe: Secrets and Origins’ the Hulk encountered a unique entity. This entity is known as Captain Universe, and is less of a person and more of a sentient energy. In any case it ends up on Earth and bonds with Bruce Banner for assistance. This leads to the creation of a Blazin’ Blue Hulk!

This rare transformation only lasts for the first issue and sadly has not reappeared at anytime after in the Marvel universe. This heroclix figure (released in 2011) is also the only representation of this Hulk form that has ever been made. I personally really liked the idea of a blue hulk (with white pants by the way). I wish they would bring that form back.

The figure is rather generic and seems to be re-purposing an older model. However, it captures the basic idea of the concept and I like they included him wielding two energy balls on his hands.

The figure is considered ‘Super-rare’ but it doesn’t appear to be highly sought after. Ebay prices seem to range around $5-10. If you are a Hulk fan trying to collect one of each different transformation, then this one is a no-brainer.

Red Hulk #050 Heroclix (Web of Spider-Man)

If you ever find yourself wanting to collect Heroclix just for aesthetic value I would highly recommend this piece. This is the Red Hulk #050 released in 2010 for the Web of Spider-Man set. The detail in this tiny figure is amazing. Just about every taught muscle and skin wrinkle is featured. It makes me very sad that as of this writing there isn’t a green version that meets the level of detail in this guy. Though there is a gray one of mention. The pose is nice too, but it’s hard to get a good look at him since hes crouched very low.

The figure is Super Rare leading to a typically higher price, but have dropped in recent years. I bought mine for around $20+, but eBay (as of this writing) typically has him for around $12-20.

Hulk #019 (Age of Ultron set)

grayHThis is an uncommon figure released in the Age of Ultron set for stores who ran the Age of Ultron storyline. Quite frankly this is a poor looking Hulk heroclix. He is somewhat thin and poorly sculpted. His face details are disappointing. The only reason I have this guy is cause he was free with the purchase of another Hulk heroclix I bought. Most places sell him for around $1.00. Don’t sweat not having this one, but it is a Hulk heroclix. So…there you go.

 

Hulk #027 / Hulk Robot #006 Heroclix

hulk006-027I decided to handle both these figures at the same time since they are pretty much the same sculpt. As you can see the one on the left is a normal looking Hulk and the one on the right has robotic components.

The Robot Hulk figure was released first in 2011 in the Incredible Hulk set. The normal Hulk was later released in 2012 as part of the Galactic Guardians Set.

These probably represent the most detailed Green Hulk heroclix you will find with few exceptions. They have nicely sculpted muscles with a very basic paint job. The robotic parts seem more or less glued on extras which is why it’s odd the robot sculpt was released prior to the normal one. Their faces are kinda squished in there to handle so much detail.

The Robot Hulk is a common item while the normal Hulk is rated as ‘Rare’. Both are fairly cheap to buy ranging around $2-4 dollars.

Hulk – 10th Anniversary Edition – #002 (Heroclix)

This Hulk heroclix was released in 2012 under Marvel’s Heroclix Tenth Anniversary set. The figure is clearly in reference to the Hulk when he first changes and seeks to escape the military bunker holding him in Incredible Hulk #1.

hulk clix2The figure has decent sculpting, though the face leaves much to be desired. The pose is nice as well. The figure is a common rarity so its typically cheap and easy to find. Typically costs $2-5.

An easy addition to any Heroclix collection.

 

 

Reassemble (New game teaser?)

Dropping today (1/27/17) a new trailer teasing a new Marvel Avengers game featuring Thor, Captain America, Iron Man and Hulk!The theme of the trailer was reassembly and needing heroes. For a brief moment you see a pair of broken glasses and hear the Hulk’s distant roar.

.
What’s exciting about this is the game developers involved. We are talking the talents of studios behind Final Fantasy and Deus Ex making this game. Could it be we are getting a fully fleshed out Avengers game and not just some Lego kiddy adventure?

.
If so I am so pumped to play as the Hulk! I would love another stand alone Hulk game but I’ll certainly take this in the meantime. Check out the trailer below. Hopefully we get more details soon.
