You know, actually, Sideshow shouldn't be doing things like this! They've already got us conditioned to get in and pre-order these things as fast as possible and get out to let others have a chance. Most of us don't even have a chance to read the pages during priority pre-orders, and now they start hiding Exclusive links on an Exclusive order page! Sucks! But of course, that's because I missed it! :horror

How'd you guys know this was coming tonight? Just keep checking your SS account newsletter page? I know I haven't actually received a newsletter. I just noticed through another route. Still missed the Gray though as I wasn't paying much attention tonight. Oh well. Green will be an LE of 25. Now that would be very sneaky of SS. lol It probably would've sold out already though, but would've been very funny if that was the case and everyone ordered just a Gray thinking it was the lowest. lol

I listened to the podcast this afternoon and picked up their little hint about the "dilemma" facing the first few people who ordered it. Remembering that the newsletter went up about 7 PM last week, I pulled up my newsletter account and logged in about 6:30, then just kept refreshing until it came up right after 7:00 came around. I went straight to the Hulk preorder page and looked around until I saw the little picture of Gray Hulk. Clicked it and placed my order.

I didn't get in on the Grey version but I love the 50 edition size. Super limited exclusives are cool. Although if this were a LotR exclusive of 50 and I missed out on it I'd probably feel more downtrodden.

What are the early numbers? How many of the 50 end up on eBay? I say 43. :rolleyes:

45 is more like it ;)



in all honesty, I do not think we will see too many on ebay. From the looks of it on the boards (here and there), a lot of them ended up with collectors.

Grey or gray (the latter more usually in American English) is a color seen commonly in nature. It is created by mixing white and black in different proportions. Depending on the amount of light, the human eye can interpret the same object as either grey or some other color.

I won't be flipping mine. Just the bragging rights of owning this piece out of 50 of us is worth it to me. Let alone how awesome it will display next to the other two dioramas.

At least those of you that missed out and have been reading this for a few hours are aware of this statue. Imagine those collectors that log on in the morning unassumingly just checking on the Aragorn preorder and find this... :horror

The Hulk was gray in the first 6 issues of the comics way back at the beginning in the early sixties. I think he has also been gray since then once or twice.

tomandshell
01-13-2006, 12:23 AM
I do believe that the official pic of Grey Hulk has simply been photoshopped. Compare the two and you will see the exact same bits of glare from the lights (on his bicep and arm vein), etc. as the green pic. They are an exact match to each other in every detail. Looks like they just adjusted it and filtered the green out of the shot. How close will that shade of grey be to the actual product, which we seem not to be looking at?

The Hulk was gray in the first 6 issues of the comics way back at the beginning in the early sixties. I think he has also been gray since then once or twice.
If I remember correctly, they were forced to change Hulks colour because the printers were having too many problems printing the original grey - hence the early change to green, and no doubt THE reason for the super exclusivity of this piece!! :horror

Congrats to all that got this piece, I'm also on the wait list but not holding much hope. The pre-order opening for these pieces was actually much better than the usual Friday 10am (5am) time for us Aussies.

well I logged in just in time. There were less than 5 left according to the meter. I refreshed the page a few times while thinkin and it was still there. Then I thought "But I dont collect Marvel ....... but I used to ...... only 50!? I gotta order one right? .......flip? ...." then I recalled a thread on a guy debating cancelling his Exc Han order or flipping the piece and Andy posted "Why dont you just cancel your order and let someone on the wait list who really wants one pic it up?" .... and with that state of mind, I closed the page and went to bed.
I just hope nobody bought this just to flip. Cause that wouldnt be flippin sweet.
I can only hope the karma gods will shine on me somewhere else. :confused:

I don't think the time zones are the real issue; they need to set a standard time for releasing the newsletter so everyone has a fair chance to get online and see it at the same time. Otherwise, it really is no different than the old way when a pre-order went up "sometime" during the day Friday.
