Have to admit, that head works really well.

It could just be me (colorblind), but I'd go with a less vibrant shade of red for the beard, and I realize that this is just a computer generated teaser image, but it looks pretty neon to me.


Otherwise, it's a great looking figure, I love the camo scheme and the cape-thing.

His head looks way too high above his shoulders in this pic. Leaves me wondering what the final product will look like when you remove the solid plastic scarf like I plan to do. I just don't like that accessory. Hope he doesn't have giraffe neck. :confused:

I knew that General Mayhem head was going to work well. I'm impressed with the both of the revealed figures. Keep going strong. So far, I'm in for two sets.

Both Charbroil and Ambush look awesome so far. I agree that the head does look like it sits way too high on his shoulders though. I hope it's corrected on the final product, and the Club hasn't made any bad figures in my humble opinion. I'm really looking forward to this set, as I wasn't able to get previous sets-not counting Oktober Guard set. I'm really looking forward to having a new General Flagg and Scoop as well! Ambush was always a favorite of mine and so far he looks great! Keep em coming!

I had done a head swap of the new dusty head on the dvd pack dusty, and it sits way high as well.

As much as I like Ambush, the head does sit to high. That needs to be fixed.

Love the paint deco on Ambush, he looks great and I hate to point out something negative, but I also think the neck looks too long. At first I thought it might just be the way it's photoshopped, but I saw some pictures on another site where collectors put the General Mayhem head on a 25th Dusty torso (also used recently on TF Recondo). It does have a really long neck. Is there any way at this point of using a different torso? The Retaliation Firefly torso (also used recently on FSS & TF Alpine) works a lot better and still looks like vintage Ambush's uniform, it even has a turtleneck. Maybe the scarf and bandolier wouldn't fit with that torso or there is some other reason it can't be used, but I just wanted to ask.

Here are the pictures of that head on the different torsos I was talking about. The Dusty torso isn't really that bad, but I do think the Firefly body is better. What do other people think?

This guy looks awesome! I also suggest a tone-down of the beard color, but otherwise, I'm very much looking forward to this figure!

I'm assuming the head is photoshopped on the body giving him that giraffe look but otherwise he looks great. Can't wait to see Gen. Flagg.

Yeah the Firefly torso looks better. Just kit bashed a 50th flint with 50th beach head lower arms and 50th lady jaye legs to see how the mayhem head and gnaw head looked. Dusty body looks ok but I'm sure a lot of people would have preferred a more recent torso, legs and arms.

Looks good, but I think he could be better using the Footloose helmet.

Ambush looks good, but likes others have said he will suffer from a giraffe neck unless the Club has altered the head mold to fit that torso.

He looks good, I would love to see a Dino Hunters version myself!

"Looks good, but I think he could be better using the Footloose helmet."

I agree, but the Footloose helmet won't fit on the Mayhem head, they'd have to switch to the Gnaw head.

I've also tried different body combos and because of the cape and bandolier combo, this is the only one that can accommodate this combo. The only way a different body could have been used is if they used a guile suit from one of the 2000 era joes or made one that sat on the shoulders. So unfortunately if you want to display him without the cape his neck will look a bit long.

A Dino-Hunters set would be a great mid-year Club exclusive.

Looks great! I don't care for the guns but the figure is fantastic.

I wish the mold still existed for his original rifle. I remember that it was the weapon of choice for the Joes during the 1990-91 cartoon series.

Agreed, they used it a lot for figures throughout the early 2000s too, the same rifle but grey was used in the viper-pit in 2006, which also was a shame because I loved the Viper's trademark rifle as well.

If they change anything I'd like them to give him any form of Sniper Rifle, PLEASE... it's sort of the whole point of him, hiding out and sniping that is...

Has anything been said by The Club concerning the neck? Do they plan to fix that or acknowledge that it is sitting too high in the mock-up?

judging from the concept art it may be part of the design to fit the scarf under his head, similar to the iceberg club figure.
