    Well, it took two years to finally land a Hulk Classics Absorbing Man! I thought I would have to break the bank for this guy, but I remained patient. I found a person selling his collection cheap and looking to get rid of it.
    I've found everybody else pretty cheap and fairly easy including Abomination! (Thank you Rite-Aid!)
    When I first got into Marvel Legends and Hulk Classics, Toybiz had just announced canceling the third wave. I never found the Absorbing Man in a single store after that.
    I didn't bother getting the Spidey 2 pack figuring they would be cheap on Ebay and plentiful. So much for that plan! :p 
    Anyway, I just wanted to share and hope some of you fellow board members have the same luck looking for your holy grails!
    Out of anything, this was the line I wanted to complete! Now, if only Toybiz would do Doc Samson, She-Hulk, and a Rick Jones figure before Hasbro takes over!
    Hope you enjoy the pics:

    Congrats for the haul dude! I'm a big Hulk fan too and I could never find Creed especially in my country! If you got the Abomination cheap, good for ya but I think the series 13 version would do more justice to the toy!

    Agreed! I'm looking foward to ML13, so I can get the better version of Abomination. Looks like it's larger and better in scale with some of the Hulk figures.
    The HC version will have to take a backseat once I get the ML version. :D

    Always did enjoy that last run of Hulk figures. I only came across (& bought) the mech Hulk. Like many others, never laid eyes on Abomination or the Absorbing Man @ retail...

    Actually TB initially showed pro-types of the HC Abomination to be of a larger scale, the same size of the Hulks. I have no idea why he was eventually downsized in terms of the actual product.

    Nice HULK collection man and congrats on scoring that Absorbing Man.
    Suprised you hav'nt picked up one of those Figure Factory Hulk kits.

    Only own the Mech Hulk but he's awesome.
