I found this comic pack marked down at a nearby Wal-Mart and could not pass it up.I really needed a Thing figure for my collection and the Bulldozer figure,while not a must have,is definitely a plus.
From what I’ve read around the internet this Thing figure isn’t the most popular but the only flaw IMO is his range of motion,or lack there of.He’s not the most poseable figure but he still looks bad a#$ when displayed!I also like the fact that he’s shorter than my Avengers Hulk figure.
I gotta admit,I don’t know much about Bulldozer other than the fact that he is part of the Wrecking Crew.This really makes me want to find the other three crew members -Piledriver,The Wrecker and Thunderball!I remember seeing these guys a lot as a kid as they would make the occasional appearance in random comics in my collection.
Comic books and action figures go hand in hand IMO.As a kid I would have gone nuts for these comic packs.Back then we were limited to reading a small three-framed strip on a card back or to a mini-comic at best.The comic included in this pack is Secret Wars #12 and while the story is dated,the various pin-up’s found at the end were a nice addition.More than anything, I dug the Marvel Universe action figure advertisements on the back of the cover!
You can’t go wrong with the Thing Tony. : )
I know it jb 😉
Bulldozer looks pretty cool. Comic books have come a long way in terms of the art…
Thanks JD!And you’re right about comic book art.
You mean you have not read Avengers:UnderSiege? Oh my god! That is one of the greatest stories ever! You have got to get that in your posession! Bulldozer is in it I assure you.
Thanks for the suggestion HG ;)I’m so out of the comic book loop that sometimes I need to be pointed in the direction of what’s good out there.I’ll definitely keep a look out!
It was from 1986. It is in Trade Paperback form! Awesome read.
