    It really says nothing about the movie, but I love these kinds of stories nonetheless. Makes me feel like I'm right there. Do you think they recouped much from the sale?

    ^ Nah it's probably just a garage sale for the fans or tourists really.

    Do you find it strange that the flyer would advertise the Hulk "in big green letters" but then "remove all signs of the Hulk" from the merchandise before the sale? It makes it sound as though the sale was more for the general public, but it's curious that they'd draw in people using the Hulk brand, for lack of a better word, on the flyer.

    Marvel's missing the boat here unless they've already hoarded the real props and clothing. I know for a fact that Fox made good money holding an auction after the first X-Men movie on a Yahoo online auction. They sold Xavier's chair, the chess set and other props. I personally bought Jean Grey's eye glasses from the film. Displayed with a Fox Achieves COA, it makes a fun and certainly unique collectable. Marvel could defer the budget a lot if they would do something similar now that they're making their own films. Also, cut a deal with a card company to include pieces of clothing on insert cards ("game used") from whatever company they target to produce movie trading cards.

    Dere's gold in dem dere pants!

    I gathered from the article that, yes, they took out anything that would've been of any real value and that these were just leftovers, more or less. I'm sure they stand to make considerable profit off of the REAL props and whatnot after the movie has passed. It's just interesting that they touted it as a Hulk sale when, in the end, they removed any traces of the Hulk. Seems like false advertisement.
