Hulk Explorer Vehicle is Hulk Tough!

Hulk Explorer Vehicle is Hulk Tough!

I really wish I had collected the Marvel Mego Superheroes back in the late 1970s and early 1980s. They might not have been canonical, but deep down in my kid heart, I always wanted the Hulk to have a vehicle. Now, of course, they ain’t exactly cheap nowadays, but in mint condition with box, it is hard not to understand why.

The box itself is 4.5 x 7 x2.25 inches and has amazing graphics and color. The front depicts the Pocket Superhero Hulk on his Hulk Explorer and the back shows the actual toys with Hulk on his Hulk Explorer and Spider-Man in his Spider-Mobile.

If these toys look familiar, it is because they were borrowed from Mego’s amazing Micronauts line of toys. I see elements of the Galactic Cruiser here among others.

Why the emerald rage beast would need a cannon to shoot at his enemies when he is the strongest there is defies logic, but as a kid having anything that actually shot something was hugely unsafe seeming. Therefore it was also the coolest thing you could have.

    Not included in the price is the amount you’ll pay for the Doctor’s visit after you shoot your eye out with that plastic missile. Seriously, this ranks up there with the Centurions line of toys for firepower…I almost lost my front teeth to Jake Rockwell’s cannon.

    But on to the subject of the Hulk vehicle, I was lucky enough to have the Captain America Mego figure, still do…but he has suffered grievous bodily harm thanks to my first dog, and I also owned the Captain America Racer, the one with the shield on the front of his car. Good toys and good times!

    FYI, This is a repurposing of assets from Mego’s Micronauts line (which was awesome!), I believe the parts are from several different vehicles. Morgan

    Nothing wrong with Micronauts, Morgan, if you have to borrow parts from a toy line then at least you should borrow from one of the best! 🙂

  4. The comic geek in me has always kept me from liking super-hero vehicles for heroes that don’t have them. This and various Spider-Man vehicles just never made sense.

    Now the Super-Mobile is very cool. I’d love to get my hands on that toy from the Super Powers line.
