He looks great! He'd look better if he had a steadcam gun.

Nice work, guys. You nailed it! A great addition to the faithfully military side of G.I. Joe. Worthy of retail. Thanks for giving us no unpleasant surprises like going with the African-American version from the Rise of Cobra line. ;)

Wow, a fantastic looking figure! Another home run for the figure! They even filled in the missing ammo and holster slots with a holster and ammo pouches. Yay!

But..., I have two small gripes. The first is the hair. It's the wrong color. Like with Cross Country (another brilliant figure), his hair is too light and too red. He should have black hair if we're going to be vintage-correct.

My second gripe is, I'm not keen on the weapons. I would have liked to have seen the stedicam gun and the vest that holds it, but even if it was just the M249 (which is still passable), why in the world is it silver? If the sun glints off silver metal, you can be seen 10 miles away. I wish more tactical sense would be taken with weapon colors, or simply having the weapons black and the paint saved from the weapons used instead on the figures themselves.

Oh well, it's an easy enough swap to give him Roadblock's SAW, or just even the NF or the Heavy Iron Grenadier gear. Still a great looking figure regardless.

Yes! Very much what I was hoping for. There has been plenty of opinions flying around here lately, but I don't think there should be much disagreement about this one. Some people didn't like the idea of all the NF set repaints, but I think Muskrat, Repeater, Spearhead, and Psyche Out are the best ones so far.

They are, and I was initially against having them repainted---but now I'm glad they are. :)

Best reveal so far, the club hit it out the park with this one...

But..., I have two small gripes. The first is the hair. It's the wrong color. Like with Cross Country (another brilliant figure), his hair is too light and too red. He should have medium brown hair if we're going to be vintage-correct.


I thought so at first too. But looking at the pictures from the NF reveals last year it appears the same(http://www.gijoecon.com/in2013/con13nfrepeat.cfm). Yet once the figure was in hand the hair was darker. Probably more of a weird color space issue. I've noticed sometimes I'll be working in a CMYK color pallet and everything looked fine. But when I published the color was off a bit when it's translated to the RGB needed for jpgs. So I think it'll be fine when we get him.

Personally I'm very relieved that he has his signature camo. I was really getting worried. But if we have to lose camo on a Cobra to get it done right here, I'll take it everytime!

There has been plenty of opinions flying around here lately... This REPEATER dosen't seem like a biggie... but what if he's as tall as the NF REPEATER? That kinda messes up good group shots!!

Fantastic! I'm a big fan of the Night Force Repeater, and this one is just as good. Great job.

Repeater looks fantastic. Club, just do me one favor though? I hope the silver weapons are only being used int he mock-ups here so fans can see the details of the weapons. Please do not use silver plastic in the final production figures, ok? We would all be happy if they were black or dark grey.

Great job! Looks almost exactly like his debut figure from the 90's, but updated and improved on in the new style. I definitely will be adding Repeater to my Joe team!

Love the figure, but one of the best parts about Repeater was his use of experimental heavy machine guns, so if it's still possible can you guys add the gun that he had with his original figure from the 90's? That gun was just awesome and resembled the guns used in "Aliens". Anyway, I guess I could always try to find one or two of those guns online somewhere, but there's nowhere for it to attach to. I loved that weapon system but I'm not complaining at all about this figure, just an inquiry.

Overall the figure looks great and a true ME style of the v1 version. I never liked the stedi-cam MG but do wish he came with a heavy MG like the M2 from RB or Leatherneck. Even that IG gun that came with the 2014 NF version would work.
If the M249 is a must then stop wasting silver paint on weapons - black is perfect.
I don't know who keeps sitting in the staff meetings holding out for shiny rifles, etc... but stop it - they are not true to the ARAH versions or real life unless it is some sort of gimmick or parade/drill weapon.

Has anyone ever tried to photoshop a dark colored object into a light colored object? Usually ends up looking a little shiny or metallic.

I love this Character and this figure. The only thing I have to gripe about is his weapon. I would have liked it better if he had come with a Steady cam machine gun. Why not have packed him with the gun that came with him in the N.F. convention set, that was the whole point of his character in the first place. Anyway it's still a great looking figure can't wait to get him.

Nice work on the figure- what's up with his weapon though? Few more to see, then I'll be placing my order for the first time...
