too!, Frenzy wants to read

Burn at the touch of The Fallen Thing!

Shortpacked!@TNI: Based on a true story!
Shortpacked!: Y'know, maybe that'll actually work.

I knew I wanted all the The Fallens. The Fallen is awesome. And a movie The Fallen decoed as if he's on fire? Oh heck yeah!

But since he was the titular villain, there was actually quite a bit of merchandise, and it starts accumulating space. So do I really need a mere redeco of him, even if it's orangey and orange?

Upon seeing Target's exclusive The Fallen redeco in person today... Oh hell yeah. Oh hell yeah with a spoon.

It's not fair! It's impossible to photograph him in the correct colors. His real-life orange defies your puny RGB monitors. It's a glowy reddish orange. It's not a creamsicle orange like Sunstorm. It's a lava orange. That plus his red translucents and his dark neutral gray... he is beauty. I can't believe how pretty he is.

I have to admit, I tried my best to Photoshop shift him into the correct colors, but I still kinda failed. I don't think it can be done.

And it's not just the color choice itself that's pretty. I love how large parts of him are that orange plastic but sprayed over in black. It really looks like he's a piece of metal overheated.

For the love of God, he's awesome. Go to Target and get him, especially if you don't have a The Fallen yet. If you do, get this one and throw the other one away. Neither are particularly movie-accurate, but Target's is the clear winner.
