    I was really looking forward to this one. Huge disappointment on parts choice and pants colors (which I realize could be a problem with the photoshop and improve on the final version).

    Not a bad figure, but you guys need to change that font on his chest like big time. Why not use the same exact font style as before? It's an eyesore.

    Looks good, but was expecting Salvo to be on a larger body. I was hoping the Club would use 50th Bazooka 's torso & arms with 50th Leatherneck's legs.

    This body is far, far too small. Salvo is supposed to be a big guy. Why in the world wouldn't you use this body?!?!

    That one would be perfect for Salvo. I'm almost always a glass half full kind of guy, and I've always been there to defend the club, but this figure is an unbelievable disappointment.

    I agree on both the pants color being "wrong" as well as the figure build should be better. I also am disappointed to see the horrid spring-loaded weapons. That's supposedly a selling point for kids, and kids aren't ordering the FSS sets...

    Unbelievable disappointment were my exact words as well. This was a lynch pin of the FSS for me, and may have tanked it for me. This is a comprehensive failure.

    I don't think this figure is true to the original. He should be much larger. The 50th bazooka torso with Retaliation Roadblock legs would be a much better fit. Also, the bold print on the shirt looks too clean. This is a highly anticipated character and I think a change is in order.

    Swing-and-a-miss. You could have used the entire Retaliation Roadblock build for this and it would have been perfect. Instead we get this bizarre Resolute build that's far too scrawny.

    Even in the DIC cartoon, he was a large guy. Had to be to carry all that ordnance.
