|Ready To Wreck Some Balls|
|The Milkshake which brings all of the boys to the yard is MINE!|
I just think it's funny that they now have two seriously awesome versions of Absorbing Man, who I have never heard of, but the Punisher figure in this scale looks like Frankenstien's Monster got his hands caught in a rice picking machine. Hell, I would be happy if they repainted this one!
The back of the card explains that Absorbing Man was turned into a supervillain on accident by Loki, and that he can take on the attributes of anything he touches. He came with a wrecking ball. So I guess this version is all set up to wreck some superhero balls.
The only downside to this figure is the very heavy wash shading applied to the arms. The treatment works well on the chest, but his arms look like he was wresting with Clayface. Careful selection may mitigate this, but all of the packaged examples I have seen exhibit the problem to a greater or lesser degree.
Absorbing man will likely be donating his body to a super secret figure project I am working on currently. I'd tell you what it was, but it's super secret.
