The Crown of my Collection!!

Post by Dabigfella on Wed Aug 06, 2008 12:40 pm

So everyone knows i grabbed the Sideshow Premium format Hulk statue, but ever since seeing this picture:



I knew i wanted to complete the picture, on his own the Hulk is an awesome piece, but with the Thing it would be rediculously awesome, but with interest rates rising and my wife off work with our little boy money was tight and there was no chance of affording it. But then the lucky winfall of the trip to Comic-con, a place where Sideshow would be, and i tentatively put him on a list of things i wanted to track down while in the States. When we got there we found out that Sideshow had brought one of the exclusive Thing statues (with both the open mouth head and the angry closed mouth head) so i knew this was as close as i would get, and at nearly half of what the Hulk cost it was well within reach. So i did it, and had to lug the 18 kilo box around for the rest of the trip and was lucky that UCK only had one suitcase (i ended up with 2) so shipping was free!! And here are my 2 favourite pieces in my collection!!















And with my 9 month old son for a size comparison (this will be as close as he gets to them again!!!)

hehe not with the wifey breathing down my neck, my brother in law is a carpenter/builder and has some great ideas for my room, including a cabinet with a fishtank style top which will be in the middle of the room for them, sounds like it will be just what they need to be displayed in, now all i need is to win the lotto.....UCK??

Yep, they truly look awesome! My ten month old son comes into the toy room and sits in utter silence as he scopes out all the tiny plastic eyes peering back at him. Does your little fella do the same?

Wonder what's sculpted down there lurking beneath the cloth... Shocked

For the price you'd expect them to be 'fully functional', no? Rolling Eyes
