    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.

    Not really. He's got big arms, but that's it. He's lean and wears a tight shirt so he has a lot of muscle definition, but he's not husky or bulky like the Benchpress or Roadblock torsos. The torso for his vintage figure is no bigger than any other 1990 figure. His card art also shows his torso as fairly thin. In DIC, he's portrayed with the same build as every other Joe on screen, again apart from the ripped arms.

    The only two issues I have with this figure is the font on the shirt and the thin arms. He really needs bigger arms (which might help him look slightly bigger overall). And the classic font is a must have. That typed font does not look right at all. The torso is not perfect by any stretch, but the big bulky torsos are just as bad in the opposite direction. I personally would like to see what Road Pig's torso looks like with a shirt painted on.

    This is what the same build looks like with the larger arms that I would like to see used.

    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.
