    I like that the club has elected to include Bullhorn in the FSS. This, however, makes even the Accelerator Suit Barricade look good. I will be keeping the figure because I want a Bullhorn in my ME collection. I have to agree with the general consensus, though. the Spearhead/Duke/Dusty head was a bad choice. That said, maybe it's the headband throwing me off. The original Bullhorn looked more as if he was wearing a hairnet, or is it just me?

    For me, it's not only the fact that he's going to be twins with spearhead duke and dusty in my collection, and a custom sneak peek I commissioned, but the part for one just doesn't look right with that headband, maybe if it was parted over the headband, but I know that's not possible, and two, the fact that bullhorn didn't have a part like that.mindont know, it's just not working for me.

    Sorry but this head looks better than the original, 1990 Bullhorn looked terrified!

    Original also had a sculpted headband, this is a nice homage but making it removable to use the gasmask is an improvement.

    Original bullhorn had more hair, and the headband IMO doesn't work with parted hair.

    I suppose it's a matter of opinion but I don't think the original head looked terrified. I thought he looked more serious. I have to agree with the other comments about finding a better head sculpt or making a new one. As for the legs, i know everyone wants the gaiters and it's probably easy to do but these legs aren't bad either so I could go either way. The only real let down to me for this figure is the head sculpt. Hopefully they will address that in the final figure.

    I think maybe Zap's head could work? I probably would have taken a new headsculpt here over using it on Outback.

    That seems to be the general consensus. Those legs work on pretty much any figure as go to legs. I'd rather have a figure that's accurate in the face than specific types of pants

    Nice looking figure, but he could be better with a few minor changes:
    1. Change the lower legs to the ones that came with the Retaliation Ultimate Flint.
    2. Use the Retaliation Flint head, it would look better with that head band.
    Anybody else have any ideas on how to make this guy better?

    That sounds good to me. I was thinking the airborne head would be a better fit, but I'd go with retaliation flint for the fact that:1) I don't have that head anywhere in my collection, and Twins really bother me 2) thats the head being used for sneak peek, which I understand because that helmet fits sneak peek perfect, and that head usually has that helmet paired with it. The legs, I can agree with your choice of legs as well, though if the head was different, I probably wouldn't have even noticed the legs

    If Bullhorn had opted to become a politician, he would not have a hard time attaining his goal. He has charisma and a compassionate personality that makes him effective as a people person. It's also this kind of personality that makes him an effective crisis negotiator. Slick as a diplomat with the looks and charm to wit, he makes people think he's listening to their problem and seem like he actually cares about their problems. Even hard core extremists would have to take the time to talk with him. And if all negotiations get thrown out the window, the cool and collected Bullhorn starts to smash the door or windows to take decisive action. If only they had realized that he is also a hand-to-hand combat specialist and national pistol title contender, they would wish they listened to him instead and took the easy way out.

    I don't get this A PEOPLES PERSON ANS NEGOTIATIOR with a sniper rifle. I guess he negotiates from a distance?
