Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s BTS pic, another goodie from the archives of effects dude Steve Johnson.
The crowdfunding for his tell-all book about the glory days of make-up effects is wrapping up soon, so if you want a copy click on the cover below and pre-order!

Today’s picture is interesting in that it’s early effects work for a film that ended up not happening. In the late ’90s Jonathan Hensleigh tried to launch a Hulk film that was weird as hell. Gale Anne Hurd was producing (she later went on to produce both the Ang Lee and Louis Leterrier Hulk films) and it came close to happening. Not close enough.
In the film the Hulk fought radioactive bug men and the below is a life-sized build for one of these Hulk Bug people. You can tell even by the look on the faces of the guys in this picture that they knew this was silly as shit.

We got one more image for you from Mr. Johnson’s stacks and it’ll karate kick you in the face with its awesomeness. See ya’ tomorrow for that one!
