Absorbing Man Marvel Legends (2008)

Marvel Legends Absorbing Man

Marvel Legends Absorbing Man

I have been searching everywhere for these figures!  I heard a rumor that they were out early and have been visiting every store I can to keep a lookout.  So, on Saturday, after I left Hellboy 2 I wandered into Newbury Comics not expecting to find anything and saw 3 of the 8 figures!  This here, the Grey Savage Hulk and Doc Samson.  I will be getting the others as soon as I find them – but for now I was excited to find these!  I will start by showing you the Absorbing Man which is really close to the ’96 figure.

But this is a bit different… first off he has brick and stone absorbed.  That sculpt is pretty impressive.  I’m not too sure if I will end up getting figures to open so that I can build the Fin Fang Foom figure because these figures run about $14.99 – and at the ever more expensive Newbury… $19.99!  Yeah, that’s a lot of money for a figure.  It’s a good thing I have no sense when it comes to Hulk merchandise – because as nice as these figures look – the price tag is a killer!  The back of the package has a little bio and stats on the charaxter which is pretty cool – much like a lot of the Legends figures do – but a lot of them weren’t this expensive!
