That looks really nice! Someone at SSC must really like this too often overlooked character.

Not really into YO JOE, but I could really be tempted with this one all Joe aside.

I preordered it since I have every other Joe offering, but I am a little disappointed it isn't the Baroness they sneak peaked a while ago, and majorly disappointed at the Hot Toys pricing level. This is one I could see myself cancelling in the future.

Re: New 12" GI Joe - MAJOR BLUDD

Neat figure, I liked this character a lot back in the day. Not crazy about how the cybernetic arm looks though. Going back to my recollections of the 3 1/4 figure I thought it was just some kind of armored gauntlet to shield the arm from the rocket pistol blast.

Not digging the nerf gun or the eyepiece for the helmet. I pre-ordered him but not sure if the value is there. I want to see what names are on the ID tags.

Re: New 12" GI Joe - MAJOR BLUDD

I'm really trying to like this guy... but just can't find the spark to say go for it. I'm not a "completist" Thank God so it's not a must have for me. Like everyone's saying, Where's Baroness, for me Roadblock, Bazooka and WTF Sargeant Slaughter or Lady Jane?! They back peddled with the new SNAKE EYES release, which looks horrible in my opinion and released a bunch of cheapo variant pieces like the Ninjas and Troopers. I'm falling out of love fast with the line. Also, not a huge fan of the sculpts and base bodies they use....

Re: New 12" GI Joe - MAJOR BLUDD

Well, damn...

I like him.

I'm still baffled by folks who will pick a release TO DEATH based on photos of a prototype.

Oh, and by the way, nobody gives a damn what you'd "rather see." This is what we're getting and that's the company's prerogative.
