Absorbing Man Custom Action Figure
So I don't know if I have ever really loved either version of Absorbing Man that we have seen made. The Toy Biz one is the better of the two, but he is a tricky one to come by. The Hasbro one is dang close to Marvel Universe scale. Through excessive fodder purchases I ended up with one to many T Hawks. The base seemed easy enough. Though not the most challenging of customs, the brick work on his arm provided a decent feat. Probably some of my better sculpting working to date (but I am a smidge biased). Just ignore the less than impressive work on the boots. The head is from some random figure I dissected a long time ago.
I opted to mirror the Toy Biz version and paint him in his prison garb. I chickened out on painting the grey and white prison pants. For fun, I used some scratch on letters to give him a little more detail. "MS" is for maximum security. Heck if I know what "72" is. Cell block maybe? Maybe someone can do a "LOST" level analysis and find a hidden meaning.
I painted his upper body with a Tan Vinyl Spray and brick arm and paints with a Red Vinyl Spray. I finished him up with a bunch of dry brushing. Hope you like him. As always, thanks for the kind words and feedback.
