This is one of the most sought after figures from any Hulk line… ever! It’s not even a Hulk figure – and even more-so – it’s the Absorbing Man! Who is actually, for all intents and purposes, a Thor villain. But – this figure is WAY better than any Absorbing Man before OR after – and one of the best parts – the thing that puts it over the top, the thing that no one has even tried to do again (but SHOULD) is the interchangeable arms. One is steel, one looks like iron – but the third is the ultimate – a Hulk arm! Although – that hasn’t happened in the comics. I am not 100% sure – but I think the Absorbing Man can only take on properties of inanimate substances.
You can’t see this in the photos – but this figure (which easily sells for a hundred +) that I found in a LCS – just sitting on the shelf! This figure is actually complete – but off the card. I put it together with some glue and tape and it looks fantastic! Just like it was before someone haphazardly took it out of the package! I’m not sure if I asked this before – is anyone out there who collects keep the figures in the package like I do? I know a few collectors out there, like JG and Sean, they take these little plastic treasures out of the blister cards – but I love them the way they look inside the package!
By the way, has anyone seen Toy Story 3 yet? Freakin’ movie is fantastic!
