    While I can agree to a point, I would still use the arms that the club is using with the torso and legs from the 50th cobra trooper would make him looke closer to the original, this works for me. If Fun Pub makes those changes or not I good either way. It still looks close enough to the original as is.

    I'm sure he will be better in hand. For now I'm on the fence about this guy. He looks too skinny.

    Does anyone else see the skinny legs/big head thing going on here? This needs to be scrapped.

    The head will be huge. It's tombstone from the 50th.

    I was expecting more Sunbow and less 2007 Convention. Not awful, not great either for a figure that was neither wanted or unwanted I guess it is okay. However, this is the one where the simplest build (head on Cobra Trooper body with the white 25th harness would have worked best) For those looking for change, choose your battle- would you rather have "Missile Commander Blowtorch" aka as Fast Draw in FSS 8.0 changed, or changes made to the figure nobody really was seeking out in the first place? ... Honestly, the reaction to any type of mock up, or alternative bid indicates that it is too late and there will be no changes anyways.

    I know I am in the minority here but I dont have a problem with the Lt. I dont want exact copies of the originals, he will go well with our Shock troops.

    As feared, all i see is Tombstone, who i already use as claymore anyway. This one is a bummer.

    The first thing I saw were the legs.... those alley viper legs. Those legs could be used on female figures they are so small. This is not good
