Let’s talk about the Hulk

Picked up a beat to hell copy of The Incredible Hulk #4 recently, and the content is just too good to keep to myself. So without further ado…

20140813-224520-81920407.jpg

This particular issue is referred to as a “reader copy”. The cover is a little less than half way shredded (still attached) and has a small chunk missing from the bottom right. It is also suffering from “Marvel chipping”, where the edges of the cover are a bit brittle and tend to chip and break off if not handled properly.

20140813-224933-82173720.jpg

My copy is also missing page 1, the title or “splash” page, which in fact makes it almost worth the cover price once again. But as is the norm for comic books of this age (it’ll be 52 years old this November) the interior is otherwise intact and in perfect reading shape.

20140813-225810-82690093.jpg

One of the best visuals in any Hulk story is the “transformation”. Especially in the early days…

20140813-230101-82861387.jpg

20140813-230154-82914483.jpg

The second story focused on a fight between ol greenskin with this guy:

20140813-230239-82959980.jpg

Turns out Mongu was just a crummy robot with a dirty Commie inside.

20140813-230454-83094115.jpg

Yes, the Hulk was challenged to a fist fight by a Russian Communist. You have to remember it was 1962, and even the Fantastic Four kinda owe their powers to the Russians…because their whole reason for sneaking into that rocket was to beat the Commies to the moon…

20140813-230833-83313360.jpg

20140813-230910-83350303.jpg

20140813-230909-83349630.jpg

Also as a note: at this time Hulk was still wearing blue pants. He didn’t start wearing those stylish purple trousers until much later…

20140813-231739-83859361.jpg

But it turns out in #4, a Hulk robot is seen sporting them first! Shades of things to come

20140813-231943-83983753.jpg

And, as every story seemed to do in those days, ends with Bruce Banner and Rick hiding away into their underground lair to get some rest to figure out what the fu*k they were going to do tomorrow.

20140813-232535-84335406.jpg

Little did they know they would be cancelled two issues later…

Microman Transfer Fortress

20140807-170513-61513616.jpg

In 1976 the Japanese Microman series got it’s first remote controlled toy, er, ship, er fortress. Regarded as more a base than a vehicle, came the Transfer Fortress. A monster of a toy containing over 70 individual pieces to make 8 toys in 1.

20140807-170832-61712510.jpg

The attention to detail was amazing, as shown by the box top interior which contained the “instruction sheet”.

20140807-171022-61822813.jpg

20140807-171040-61840833.jpg

20140807-171040-61840972.jpg

Inside there were die cut cardboard inserts to hold specific parts, many of which were small easily lost. Before the choking hazard was an issue (forcing Mego to put large rubber tips on the projectiles) the Transfer Fortress came with suction cup tipped missiles which fired from the side cars which also could be played with as a gun.

20140807-171511-62111278.jpg

To top off this beast of a toy was an insert on one side containing technical info and the famous “cut away” diagram illustration that many Microman toys came with

20140807-171709-62229270.jpg

And the reverse side containing a cool painting of the base in action. As always it begs the question: where is this artwork now??

20140807-171808-62288904.jpg

The Visible Man

20140620-163127-59487093.jpg

In 1959 the Renwal Blueprint Models Co., of Mineola N.Y. produced a very intricate plastic model called “The Visible Man”. At 1/5 scale, it is still a very detailed reproduction of the human anatomy.

20140620-165017-60617882.jpg

20140620-165050-60650607.jpg

20140620-165601-60961513.jpg

I don’t know what the original srp of this model was, but I’m sure for the time it wasn’t cheap. Not only did it come with hundreds of small model pieces, it also came with a nicely illustrated introduction to anatomy booklet, assembly instructions and guarantee/part replacement order form.

At some point I might actually assemble this guy properly, but this also requires painting all the small pieces and painstakingly gluing them all into place. I’m not a very patient person unfortunately.
