    The only part that is close to the Con version is literally the head. The rest of the body is completely different from the con build.

    Great choice in retooling that gun.

    Nice to have it a little more faithfull to the original but I'm glad I have the con version. Have to agree that the arm selection is weird.

    I can grant you that after a second look. I have the JoeCon version, so I'm likely to either leave this carded or put him in the Evader for my collection.

    Now I have to figure out how to pay for two subscriptions! I am not fortunate enough to have the Joe Con version. So this will work for me. Love all the figures so far!

    ...isn't this the same guy as a Con extra out of last years offerings? Is he supposed to be 'The DESTRO of Vehicles'?

    Love it!!. I think this a much more vintage-faithful version of Darklon. The 2012 Con ver (which I don't own) is great but I think this is better.

    Proof the waiting sometimes pays off. Now I don't have to spend $$$$ on the 2012 figure.

    No Grenadiers logo on his, anywhere, waist looks too skinny... I'm sticking with the con version.

    Yes, there was a Darklon sold at the the convention in 2011. They both use the color scheme of the original 1989 Darklon but this one uses entirely different parts, except for the head of course. The first one looked more like an armored up, battle ready Darklon. This one (which is called a courier) looks more suited for riding in vehicles or hanging out at Castle Destro.
    looking for:
    vintage Capt Grid Iron helmet and football grenades
    vintage Backblast v1 missile launcher
    DG Storm Shadow Bow (or similar mold in black)

    The photoshopping on this looks terrible, but the part choice's are good,(except for the Zartan arms). He's one of those figure's that'll look better in hand.
