The Thirty Hulks Known To Exist
The Number 30 Hulk shows up on Aug 14th 2011
There are now only 30 Denys Fisher Stretch Hulks Known to exist!
The next 30 pics starting at the top right and down and the final Hulk on the top left colum are the actual pictures of the only 30 currently known to exist Denys Fisher Stretch Hulks.The 1st , 2nd 5th, 8th,14th and 16th Hulk pics are my 6 Hulks. I have placed a Value for each Hulk at the end of each caption.
I have recently revaluated the Denys Fisher Stretch Incredible Hulks for a few reasons.First,the economic conditons have put a huge strain on the toy market as well a every other facet of the retail market.What may have sold for 5,000 only a few years ago is now selling for half of that or even less.Second,the values I have stated were set in place several years ago when only 2 or 3 Hulks were known to exist.As the number of hulks climbed it is necessary to readjust their respective values accordingly to compensate for the higher number of hulks now in existence as well as the fact that more hulks are lilkly to be found in the future.How many Hulks you ask are out there? it is hard to say but if only 30 hulks have ben found in the past 30 years since their dissapearance,logic says only a few more are out there.This being said,it is also possible that we are closing in on what may soon be the final Hulk to be found as each hulk that is discovered also brings us closer to that very last surviving hulk.The Denys fisher Hulks are still incredibly rare and valuable and difficult to find in mint or close to mint conditon.This is why even with the new adjusted appraisals the Denys fisher Hulks are and will always be very rare and valuable stretch figures and remain one of the most difficult figures to obtain.
The following values for each Denys Fisher Hulk vary due to each Hulks condition as well as completeness and condition of Box. These are very rare stretch figures.for a few reasons. One is because the Denys Hulk was the only stretch figure never avaiable in the USA.You may say, wait! Strech King! the japenese Stretch Armstrong was not available in the usa either, or even the Italian Monster. One must realize that these figures were knock offs of the original Armstrong and Monster,,some were even the exact same figures in different boxes. the Hulk is one of a kind. No other countries made the Hulk. It was Exclusive to the United Kingdom as the figure it is. Also, it is the Hulk, an actual superhero, its value is much greater than the Monsters or Armstrongs, especially due to the limited number in existence. You cant just go to the nearest walmart and find one of these babies. When I grade these Hulks for value, I look at each one individually and note the condition of the box,and coffin,The originality of the figure.(Is it Original Syrup, Has it been cleaned or worked on?) I acess the figures skin for holes ,dryrot,thinning and definition. I also look at the hardness of the figure,Condition of the shorts and head paint as well as the symitry (shape and proprtions of the figure).Because I cannot personally see each figure, I somtimes must rely on descriptions from the owners which may cause some fluctuations in the appraisals.With only 30 Hulks in existence to date, Denys Fisher Stretch Hulks are truely a stretch collectors Holy Grail!
