MANILA, Philippines – (UPDATED) Hollywood actor Mark Ruffalo tweeted about the extraordinary Hulk action figure he received from a Filipino artist on Saturday, October 21.

Ruffalo lauded Padilla’s effort by giving him a “shout out” in his official Twitter page. He also said Padilla’s craft is “sustainable.”

“Elmer Padilla made this for me so I just wanted to give a nice shoutout. Not only is this inventively creative, but it’s sustainable and just pure awesome! Thank you Elmer!” tweeted Ruffalo.

Padilla, a budding action figure artist now based in Cavite province, used to be pedicab driver on the side and a construction worker.

Mark Ruffalo is not the only Hollywood actor who got a gift from Padilla.  Thor star Chris Hemsworth got one as well and described the action figure as better looking than himself. 

The Imus City government recognized Padilla for setting an example to save the environment through recycling on Friday, October 20. – Rappler.com
