Hulk Flashlight!

Hulk and Spider-Man Pinball Game!

msh_hulkspidey_pinball
Bah, Hulk was already tired of seeing toys with Hulk and Bug-Man on them! Bug-Man must not be good enough to sell toys without Hulk's help!

1975 Inflatable Hulk Plastic Pillow!

msh_hulk_75pillow
Hulk does not think that Hulk could use this pillow. Plastic pillow is too much like balloon, and balloons and Hulk do not get along with each other.

1980 Hulk Origin Poster!

msh_hulk_originposter80
Hulk does not know what "origin" means. But Hulk is confused by picture showing puny Banner changing into Hulk! Hulk hates puny Banner!

Hulk Football!

msh_hulk_football
What does Hulk have to do with football? Hulk is confused by this football with Hulk on it.

Hulk is also confused why it is called a football. It does not look like a foot!

1979 Hulk Target Game!

msh_hulk_79targetgame
Hulk does not like target game! Why would children want to throw things at Hulk? Hulk is children's friend!

Hulk Bed Pad!

msh_hulk_bedcusion
Hulk does not think that this pad would be very comfortable, because it is too thin. But if children like it, Hulk can not get angry about it.

Argentina Hulk Watch!

msh_hulk_argentinawatch
Hulk is back to blog again. Hulk does not know if watch from Ar-Gen-Tee-Nuh is real watch or toy watch.  Hulk thinks it doesn't matter anyway, as Hulk does not know how to tell time.

Hulk Drawings!

hulk166_19_trimpe
Above, we have page 19 from Hulk #166, by Herb Trimpe.

No, it's not Bruce Banner writing today's entry (it's Jon filling in today)... apparently, he decided to go for a walk in the neighborhood here, and unfortunately, a few of our neighbors don't keep their dogs in the yard. Right after Bruce stepped in some dog poop, one of said dogs came running down the street, barking at him. Now, Bruce has become accustomed to our dogs, but not the neighbor dogs... and, well, he got scared and upset... and you can guess what happened next.

It's risky enough having Bruce Banner walking around outside the house (not that anyone would recognize him), but clearly, having the Hulk in the neighborhood is not good, so Krypto gave him a faster-than-the-human-eye-can-see ride to the portal connecting our universe to the comic book universes before things got too out of control.

Why did I even think having the Hulk write blog entries was a good idea?

Hulk Drawings!

rampagingHulk27_17_colan
Bruce Banner here yet again! It's always odd for me to look at comic book art featuring my alter ego, especially since I rarely have any first-hand memories of what is being presented. In the case of the above artwork, done by Gene Colan for Rampaging Hulk #27 (it's page 17), it is apparently not part of what's referred to here as my "official continuity," making it an even odder experience!

Hulk Painting!

hulkmag27_cov_jusko
Bruce Banner here yet again! The artwork you see above was done by Joe Jusko for the Hulk Magazine #27, which apparently featured stories not based on my actual adventures. It does appear to be a very well-done piece of artwork!

Hulk Towel!

msh_hulk_towel
Bruce Banner here again! It's amazing how less stressful life is while visiting this part of the country -- Jon, who runs this blog, tells me it's because where I am while I'm doing this isn't actually the same reality in which most of my adventures (as well as my alter-ego's) take place, and that in this reality, most people consider me to be a fictional character! I've done enough readings on alternate realities to realize that this is a very real possibility -- certainly some of the comic books I've read here would seem to be proof of it!

Anyway... this Hulk towel seems to be fairly well manufactured, although my alter ego appears to be in a pretty good mood in the artwork!

Hulk Model!

Bruce Banner here again, having maintained my "cool," as the kids say these days...

msh_hulk_auroramodelbuilt
I must say that, although I don't care for such representations of my alter ego myself, this kit was very well-assembled and painted, although perhaps some more detailing would have brought out even more. Still, a very nice effort!

Hulk Ice Pops!

msh_hulk_icepops
Um, hello? I can never quite get used to doing this. Bruce Banner here... apparently the Hulk managed to calm down enough yesterday to change back to me, which normally would mean I'd look for an opportunity to cure myself of the curse of this dual life and end the menace I am as the Hulk forever... but apparently there's some kind of agreement that I'm obligated to honor in the event that I am available each day to provide a blog entry.

Anyway, these "Ice Pops"... they appear to be rather mislabled, aren't they? Obviously, they should have been called "Ice Pop Molds," and it is also extremely audacious of them to promise that any Ice Pops you make with this would be delicious, because that would depend entirely on what liquid you're using, wouldn't it?

Oh, sorry... apparently, the person who's actually in overall charge of this daily blog does not consider it entirely appropriate to completely nitpick everything about these items. Well, I suppose as long as nothing makes me angry, I should be returning here tomorrow to look at something else.

Fun Poncho!

msh_hulk_poncho
Man, I knew it was a mistake when I heard they'd asked ol' Thunderbolt to fill in here... I mean, that turkey's so jive it's not funny! I guess that's what happens when you don't check your messages often enough.

Oh, I guess I'd best be telling you who I am... Jim Wilson's the name, or as some people call me, "Hulk sidekick #2," after Rick Jones. Hey, it's all cool... I just don't understand why I don't get called in more often when the Hulk's not available to come over here. I also don't understand why there's some big white dog with a yellow collar and red cape giving me the stink-eye as I'm sitting here typing this. I heard from Rick that this dog wasn't being Mr. Friendly to him, either, so I guess I can't be offended!

So, what is it I'm supposed to be doing here? Oh, yeah, I remember now... talk about the Hulk stuff... so up there's a picture of a Hulk "fun poncho" -- are ponchos really that fun? At least it looks like a decent pic of Jade-Jaws on there!

Hey, just got a message that the Hulk's cooled down, and he should be back tomorrow... man, doesn't that just figure? Jones gets a few days filling in, and I just get one!

1979 Wind-Up Hulk!

msh_hulk_1979windup
Ten-hut! Pay attention when I'm speaking! This is General "Thunderbolt" Ross addressing you. Now, I don't pretend to understand why there's a blog glorifying that mindless monster, the Hulk, or even why I've been pressed into service filling in for that gargoyle here, but I know my duty.

So, about this toy... apparently one could wind it up and it would walk. I'm sure that children who are unaware of how big a menace the Hulk is to the world at large would find this an enjoyable toy, but I would never allow a child of mine to play with such a travesty of toy manufacturing!

Hulk Pocket Full of Fun Viewer!

msh_hulk_pcoketfullofun
Hi again, Hulkophiles! Rick Jones filling in again for the Hulk, who's still hacked off about some of the Hulk toys he's had to talk about here. Now, I think the Hulk would dig this toy, because it's like one of those "movie viewer" toys, where kids get to look into it and see how the Hulk got to be... I guess over at the DC Universe, they call 'em "Secret Origins" or something like that.

I hope the Hulk is cooled off by tomorrow, because I've got a gig to play in Miami, Florida, and I've got to get bookin'!

Hulk Whirly!

msh_hulkwhirly
Rick Jones coming atcha again, Hulkophiles! I see by the packaging that Imperial Toys made this absolutely ridiculous Hulk toy... I can't say that I blame Greenskin for getting annoyed seeing stuff like this! And how long can one kid play with something like this, for that matter? "Oh, look, it's spinning and lighting up... wow."

Sometimes I think toys like this were made to be sold to parents who were desperate to find some Hulk item for their kids but didn't want to spend much money!

Hulk Patches!

Heya, Hulksters! Rick Jones here, filling in for my big green buddy!

msh_hulk_patch
Now, I'd heard that old Greenskin was pretty hacked off yesterday about some toy that featured him riding a motorcycle, and I can't say I blame him! But I don't think he'd be much happier with how he's pictured on the patch above -- sheesh! The logo patch is pretty cool, though!

Hulk Stunt Cycle!

msh_hulk_ahistuntcycle
Hulk thought Hulk had seen last of stupid Hulk toys that have Hulk driving car or boat... but Hulk was wrong! Hulk hates stupid motorcycle toy! HULK IS GETTING MAD!

Hey, why is white dog with cape barking at Hulk?

(a bit of tussle later)

Uh, hi... "puny human Jon" here... apparently, Krypto's decided to keep an eye on things when the Hulk comes by to do his blog entries, the better to keep my house in one piece. When the Hulk started getting upset, Krypto flew him away until he could get a chance to calm down.

I'm not sure if he'll be back for tomorrow's post or not... I suppose I'd best make sure I've got She-Hulk, Rick Jones, or Doc Samson on my cell phone still...

What? I'm sorry... oh, some of you don't read "Random Acts of Geekery" and didn't know that my dog was Krypto? He's got his own Facebook page and everything! Well, now you know...

Hulk does not know why Thor and Ax-Man are shown in picture... only Hulk matters!

Drawings!

rampaginghulk02_05_simonson
Hulk does not remember this fight... Hulk thinks that Marvel Comics sometimes made up fights for Hulk to be in.

Hulk thinks this is way too meta.

Saturday, August 7, 2010

Drawings!

hulk217_30_sbuscema
Hulk remembers helping circus people... Hulk likes to help, but humans do not let Hulk help. Humans always scream and run or try to hurt Hulk.

Hulk does not remember this fight... but at least Hulk is not looking at stupid toys!

Hulk is trying to remember when this drawing happened, but Hulk walked through too many towns when Hulk was not happy.

Drawings!

Hulk hates Bi-Beast... Hulk also does not understand why Bird-Nose always giggled when Hulk told him about Bi-Beast. Hulk does not think Bi-Beast is funny!

Hulk had forgotten that Surfer hit Hulk with board when Hulk asked to be taken to stars... Hulk owes Surfer a smashing.

Hulk is confused... why does puny human Jon keep showing Hulk drawings that do not show Hulk beating his enemies?

Hulk Drawings!

Hulk always hates it when Hulk has to fight in magic places...
