Mystery Hulk Figure- This thing isn’t a bootleg as it’s marked Marvel and honestly, my best guess is it came from something like a Mold-A-Rama type machine. Anyone know what this is?

Marvel Heroes : Live and In Person

I love toy history knick knacks like this. Incredible Hulk Action Box- I’ve gone all these years not knowing what an “Action […]

Latch Hooking, everybody’s doing it!
