1979: HULK HULA HOOPS HULK 3D JIGSAW POSTER


Here's another web-find...

A long time ago, I posted the HULA HOOPS (hardy perennial UK snack food, apparently launched in 1973) advert for a mail-away 3D INCREDIBLE HULK JIGSAW which appeared in Marvel UK titles in early 1979.

At the weekend, I found this photo of what - I assume - was an in-store poster for the same campaign.

The live-action TV show was booming in the UK at the time, hence an avalanche of licensed products and Marvel's decision to drag the green goliath out of his long-time seventies home - THE MIGHTY WORLD OF MARVEL - and into his own weekly.

  1. I remember sending off for it. I was surprised how big it was and had endless fun pulling it apart and remaking it. Kept if for years until it finally fell apart.
