I thought they were making a figure of a young kid. Which I thought was kind of lame. Something like that should be packed into a multipack like the skeleton prop.
But this is really really good!
The webgear looks a little chunky like they all do.. Love the head!

This figure is worth the price of the entire FSS as far as I'm concerned. Awesome looking figure.

Looks good.
"Note: Photoshop coloration make some parts look glossy but will not be that way on production figure." I'm glad thats the case, otherwise he'd be one of the solid gold dancers....Shiny! :)

Can we get a group shot of FSS4 please?

The first ever version of Billy and it did not disappoint. I wonder if they'll reuse the head on a Ninja version of Billy?

I like it a lot. But ace that grapple hook and give him a backpack or sheath for the sword.

I have a question for the club... Is Arboc now officially the family name of CC and Billy? In issue 55 of the ARAH series when CC and Destro (in disguise) are pulled over by a traffic cop, CC hands the cop his real license and the cop remarks what an odd last name he has. I think Arboc would qualify as somewhat odd.

I admit I was one of those that voted for Ninja Billy but this one I'd say is a Good CHoice if I couldn't get the one I voted for.

Hey Guys!

His last name is required for trademark and it's an anagram for COBRA. This figure does not include a backpack because his sword fits into a slot on the back of the harness... and knowing is half the battle!

Thanks for an answer, but I kind of wanted to know if you guys are officially announcing a last name for CC and Billy. I think it would be awesome if after 33 years we finally got an answer about half of Cobra Commanders real name.

Pretty dope. I'm concerned about his stature, as that ROC Snake Eyes buck is kind of short. Also, is that webgear updated, or is that pistol part of the sculpt?

I was hoping for the kid version who wore Stormshadow's old pajamas but they said he'd be "adult/mercenary" at Joecon so I'm okay with this.

Billy Arbco figure blew me away. Glad I have my subscription in. This figure will be in high demand

Call me Snake...




For those not "In the know," I'm referring to both the fact that he is the son of big boss snake Cobra Commander, and the fact that he looks like a young Snake Plisskin. Very cool figure.

Nice call on the Snake Plissken, cloaked raven!! I have seen Kurt Russell in The Thing and Escape from NY both this week2 :)
Love the figure even more now!

Needs a five o clock shadow for the pliskin look though, but close enough.

THAT'S who I was trying to figure out! Snake Plisskin!! Brain has been chewing on that since I saw the picture!!

Not really on my most demanded list, but I think its pretty cool. I love that he looks like Snake Plisskin rather than just being a Storm Shadow body with a new head (which is what I thought we were getting).

Plain, but certainly the winner in the set for me. I love the head sculpt.

He's a little too "cut" for my tastes. Maybe sculpt him down a little bit.
