And there it is. This one is a complete waste. 30 bucks for a boring repaint of a figure i got for 10 bucks in a two pack yesterday. At least the chest tat is fresh

Certainly a straight repaint, but I do like that he gets a new tattoo, and I like having the Z-Force guys in my collection. Certainly not the best of the reveals, but at least it's a repaint of a solid figure and a legit representation of a vintage variant.

Gaucho is Puerto Rican Gung Ho in an orange vest and green pants? This is going to be so awesome.

I am all for the international figures being included, but, I agree that this one just seems kinda lazy in the execution. The chest tattoo and accessories are nice touches though.

Good execution for what it is but like others have said, this isn't one that was really in demand.
This will be the peg warmer for the wave.

I think it's a bit hard to create original concepts for characters who were actually just simple repaints of existing characters to begin with however from a consumer perspective it would be a lot nicer to put a bit more work in to them. Swap out the legs or make a new head sculpt or instead of the vest give him some other apparel. I really would like to see something different in the final product.

On a side note, it's a little more annoying because I just repainted my 2-pack Gung-ho to a similar green color scheme, no orange vest though.

Didn't the club have an o ring exclusive that used a sleeveless fatigue like the battle corps gung ho?

The colors need to be tweaked to get this to both look better and match the original figure. The vest needs to be a darker, almost reddish-orange and the pants need to be a much more pale green. The original figure looks pleasing to the eye but the colors are clashing badly on this reveal, like a neon-era '90s Joe. Hopefully it's just inaccurate Photoshop but a simple tweak in the color tones will make or break the final figure.

personally, i would have liked to see a retaliation ultimate roadblock torso with 50th gung-ho legs, vest, and head. would have been more fitting for a mechanic, imo... but whatever. i can always make my own custom... (unless this suggested formula will be Salvo instead? hm? but with ammo belts wrapped around his legs?)

i agree that the orange vest is too over the top. why would any soldier ever wear bright orange? (tiger force excepted of course) is he out hunting with recruits who haven't passed basic training yet?

PS: on a related side note: 50th grey / blue bazooka looks much better with gung-ho articulated legs, instead of the RoC roadblock UN-articulated legs that hasbro lazily used...

I would hope the Club would consider adding a tampo to the head to simulate close-cropped hair, to further differentiate the character from which it shares it's mold and build...

I hope he has a significantly darker skin tone to help differentiate him from Gung Ho.

I think he looks cool and as he was one of the two im not sure of I like it so far. In my universe he will probably be Gung Ho in my GI Joe versus the Transformers display he works.

I agree, something like a darker skin tone would go a long way to make him more distinct, and make me feel like I wasn't being swindled a little bit by his inclusion.

I appreciate that the club is trying to give us UK characters in each FSS but Gaucho is kind of boring (a straight-up repaint of Gung-Ho). Although I imagine that the club picked this easy repaint as they thought their contract was expiring this year.

A more Tan skin tone is really the only thing I would change- the colors are photoshop and they always look better in real life than in the previews anyways.

Yep...make skin tone darker and you've got it.

Does anybody have a picture of Gaucho's file card? I looked on yojoe and didn't see it. I agree, a darker skin tone would help to differentiate from Gung Ho. Also, I like the tatoo, but I recognize that bird from the Mexican flag. I've heard Guacho is Puerto Rican, so does that tat make any sense? Does that tatoo have any significance to Puerto Rico or Puerto Ricans?

Looks like he's Mexican

Well then, the tatoo makes perfect sense. Looking forward to this figure.

I like that shirt and jacket look for him from the FileCard, that would be a nice way to separate him from Gung-Ho.

all i see when I look at this figure is Gung- Ho with an orange vest.

there's an o-ring version of the figure shown on the file card that I would have preferred to this one. Does that photo look like Benicio Del Toro to anyone else?

I like the Gaucho figure but not thd Day-Glo color scheme. You almost need sunglasses to look at this figure.

Eh. I don't mind that this character looks like Gung-Ho, but slight variations in the parts that were used would help make him look like more than just a repaint. Maybe a different vest or hat would help seperate him from Gung-Ho a bit better. However, after scrolling up to his file card, the hat and face are a perfect match

This is bigger fodder than TF Shipwreck and Airtight. Good luck to anyone who tries to unload this figure on eBay. Might be the worst Sub figure ever. At least top 3.

LOL! Yes he does!
