Real Action Heroes Venom-Punisher

In the What If? Vol. 2 #44 comic book from Marvel, the question asked was, "What if... Venom had possessed the Punisher?" Inside the pages of the comic, the alien symbiote abandons Spider-Man and merges with Frank Castle aka The Punisher. With newfound powers, the Punisher redoubles his efforts against the criminal underworld with a savage campaign against super-powered thugs and bosses. The Venom-Punisher's rampage eventually leads him into an all-out assault against Spider-Man, Daredevil, and Moon Knight.

Medicom has started preorders for a Real Action Heroes figure which asks the same question as the What It? comic book and depicts Venom encasing the Punisher. A weapon is affixed to Venom's back and a holster is lashed across its chest. A stylized rendition of the Punisher's skull logo appears on the figure's chest area. Ominous.

Preorders are welcome to ship in December 2007 at JPY17000 or US$165 from NCS. Due to the size of Real Action Heroes figures, NCS recommends only shipping by way of UPS Ground to avoid onerous air shipping costs incurred with any UPS air service.
