The first two FSS 8.0 figures are starting to arrive. This is a SPOILERS thread to discuss the actual figures when they arrive, so don’t keep reading if you want to be surprised.

The first two are Clutch and Red Laser.

Awesome! I've made some custom tan clutches that I've sold over the past years. I can't wait to get this one to see how close I've been. I'm surprised they put Red Laser in the first shipment!

I have not yet received mine in hand. From what I see in photos, they are good. Clutch is a bit "plain" if you're looking for anything negative. I like them both. Keep them rolling in.

Clutch completes my modern era OG13 display case; glad to have him. Is Red Laser the only modern era Red Shadows figure? He looks good, just wish he had some more modern era Red Shadows company.

My figures aren’t due to arrive until Monday, so I don’t know which accessories are actually in mine and which maybe missing yet, but I’ve heard other people say that Red Laser’s flag is missing the back piece that holds the flag to the pole. Are they all missing the flag pole piece or is it just random?

Got mine in yesterday. Wished I could display the flag that came with red laser

I've yet to read where someone received a complete flag pole so it seems to be a factory error.

Mine arrived today. No flag pole back piece. :(

Sorry to go against the grain, but I'm leaving mine carded so I really don't care about the piece. I'm satisfied because it looks good with the right colors........ I was gonna wait until Christmas and let my kiddos help me open them, but as soon as it got here they begged to open them. So we opened and they loved them!! Like I said Red Laser is still carded and looks great. Can't wait for the rest of the goodies!!!!!

I received my set on Sunday.

I am quite impressed with the figures overall

Clutch - I always liked the VAMP II clutch so this is a great addition to my collection.

Red Laser - Overall I am happy with the figure (aside from the Stand & Flag issues). It is a great re-use of the Cobra Commander mold. The paint job could have been a little cleaner.

My sentiments exactly, well almost I would have liked to have seen a holster come with Clutch otherwise I totally agree

Is anyone else still waiting for theirs? I still haven't gotten mine yet.

The post office seems to be very back logged this year. Packages are delayed by 3-4 days. My USPS "package delivery guy" dropped off my FSS at 9:45 pm this Sun. Felt kind bad as I don't need my Joes delivered at nearly 10 on a Sun.

Wave 2 incoming!

Capt. Grid Iron and Bulletproof have arrived for some collectors. I'm really excited to get these two, mine should be here tomorrow.

Captain Grid Iron is one of the figures I'm super excited about! That's fantastic! BTW thank you for posting this in the spoilers thread and not the other one.

Got waive 2 in today. I said when they were first shown and I'll say it again the vest from the SDCC Revolution Roadblock would have been a much better choice for Gridiron don't believe me look on Facebook someone already posted a pic.

So....not a fan of Bulletproof, yet he does look awesome! I like Cap Grid iron, a nice addition to the collection. The only change I would have done is I would have used the helmet from Law & Order and put the facemask on it. I think it would have giving it more of that vintage look.

Here in South America the first shipment does not arrive yet, it looks good Grid Iron !!!

Grid-Iron's helmet looks MUCH better once he's freed from his "plastic prison". (aka OPENED)

This was a solid shipment overall. I'm kind of surprised just how much I like Bullet-Proof-- he turned out much better than I expected.

Now if only shipment 3 were to hit my house THIS week. ;)

That's good to hear about Grid-Iron. I just opened up Clutch and found him to be much better out of his "plastic prison" as well.

I am really loving Bullet Proof and Grid Iron.

Bullet Proof is simply fantastic and a great tribute to the 1992 figure. It's a shame we never got a convention set of DEF/Battle Corps figures.

Grid Iron is also very nice - I love the fact that I received the original for Christmas in 1990 and now the update 28 years later. it's amazing that the club almost completed the 1990 lineup.

Fast Draw is an awesome to update to a rather complex 1987 figure.

Clay Moore is also very good. An excellent companion to upcoming Nightstalkers figure set.

ChadExcitement@aol.com

After seeing the pics I caved and picked up Grid Iron and Fast Draw off evilbay. I'm considering Clay Moore now too.

I would have liked Grid Iron to have his original gun and a backpack of some sort. Adding a green backpack won't be hard unless that vest doesn't have a hole in back. Does it?

Has anyone tried the 50th Duke vest on the Grid Iron figure?

Fast Draw turned out dope.

The vest does have a hole, you should be able to get a backpack on. As for a gun, I had an extra Leatherneck gun I gave him(M-16 with grenade launcher). It's not the same weapon, but the color matches and it seems like a realistic/appropriate replacement.

The only two I've opened so far are Grid Iron and Bulletproof. I really like both of them. I wish a different torso had been used for Bulletproof, but he still looks pretty good once he is set up. I planned on selling Clutch, Red Laser, and Clay Moore from the start, but I'm not sure what to do with Fast Draw. I like a lot of things about him, but I already have a custom that has some things I like better. Even with different colors, that helmet and vest combo still reminds me too much of Blowtorch. I may try to mix parts from the two of them to make a perfect Fast Draw.

I can't wait for the shipments to start up again. I really like 4 of the final 6 and hopefully the 13th too.

I opened Fast Draw today. He's a little delicate due to all his equipment but it's a pretty cool figure. I wish they would have used a different helmet/mask than Blowtorch's too. I may look to customize a little bit.
