Hulk Movie Books

I was shopping for my sister's birthday present yesterday when I picked up The Incredible Hulk movie adaptation by Peter David. I still have the first movie book on my to read pile. Here are a few blurry pictures of them:

I found the Hulk action figure a few years ago at a local thrift store but I bought both of the books when they first came out.

I picked up The Jungle Book 2 DVD for my sister's birthday present.

Justice League Plus Spider-Man

Here are my ten inch Batman, Superman, Martian Manhunter and Green Latern action figures from Justice League line plus a slighter larger Spider-Man (they are standing on and surrounding my stack of cassette cases next to my stereo). All were found at the local thrift stores in the past few years. I'm hoping to find the large Aquaman, Atom, Green Arrow and Wonder Woman action figures one of these days.

In the upper left-hand corner, you can see part of my Batman Superman two pack that I actually found at the local Wal-Mart's a few years ago. I might get around to taking a picture and posting it here soon.

Movie Candy Wrappers

Apologies in advance for having pictures of movie candy wrappers instead of actual scans. My scanner seems to be having hardware problems. If I ever get a big chunk of money again, a new scanner is at the top of my need to get list.

The first movie candy wrapper is the Snickers Adventure Bar to promote the Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull movie:

The candy wrapper promises a new flavor kick and the taste is either cinnamon or nutmeg. The cool factor is not the candy bar but the Indiana Jones Arti-Facts found on the back of the wrappers. There are eight different wrappers with each having a different Arti-Fact. I got one, seven and eight.

Next up are candy wrappers promoting The Dark Knight movie. Each candy wrapper has a trivia question on the back.

My favorites was the Batman Kit Kat since the crisp wafers covered in milk chocolate are my favorites. The candy wrapper was the easiest to open. The Kit Kat itself had two bars combine into one thick bar so the large bat-symbol could fit on it.

Next is the candy wrapper for the Batman Reese's Pieces promoting The Dark Knight movie. The color of the hard candy shells were blue and dark gray. As you can tell by the picture, the candy wrapper was not the easiest to open. The trivia question on the back was the hardest to read.

Finally, there is the Batman Reese's PB Bat. The bat-shaped bar has a peanut butter interior and a milk chocolate exterior. It was pretty tasty but seemed a little bit on the small size.

I ate all the candy before I could take a picture of them. Each of them were found at the local Dollar General for fifty cents each. I didn't eat them in all one setting either since I'm supposed to be watching my diet. However, I couldn't pass up on getting these.
