Nailed this one, imho. A little paint for the holster, & maybe the belt. But wow! Can't wait to own this. The heroes in this wave aren't my favorites of the cast, but Destro is one of my two favorite villains, so I'm stoked to see how well he turned out.

That transport is awesome. I'd love to pick it up if I get the right deal. It would look cool as with a different type Stormtrooper/Clonetrooper in each port. Afro

Fish, you got any Mcfarlane DC yet? They should go great with those.

Everybody check your Walgreens. Lots of them have older Legends for 9.99. Seems to be no rhyme or reason, & my stores (& a lot of others, apparently) don't have them marked. I picked up another Classic Namor for a Ka-zar/Tarzan/Conan custom. Now I need just one more.  Afro

Also the same stores have Mattel Multiverse on deep discount. Mcfarlane seems to be  caught up in this too, so people are getting these for a deal. Nothing but Cassie Wonder Girl at my stores tho.

It looks awesome & it's my favorite ship. I hope I'll be able to score one on discount, otherwise I'll regrettably hafta pass. I think I have one in Vintage scale, so I can deal with it. Then again, I may see it & not be able to resist.

Anybody else excited about all the different stuff out or coming out? Got me thinking of doing a "The War that Time Forgot" type display. I've got a big ass JW t-rex & some other monsterish stuff I plan to throw in for my different factions to fight.
Marauder has modern & WWII military.
Chicken Fried Toys has cowboys.
Zica has Sectaurs & Captain Action.
Boss Fight has fantasy.

Now Boss Fight has Tarzan, Zorro, Phantom, & both movie & comic Flash Gordon upcoming.  I'm probably forgetting something too, I'm sure. There's a lot of great stuff going on right now with the scale. Pretty much just need good DC & Marvel figs. Some of MU holds up, but not all. DC has the new Spin Master line. Kinda toony, but still fun. Higher end is Hiya Injustice, but those aren't my style.

6" is still  my main interest, but the variety in the 4" has me stoked. Only a few more properties & I'd have everything I  collect  in one scale.

Sweet reveals. I'm gonna try for all in. I'll never see these in 6", doubt Legends will ever go that deep. Hoping they'll  homage the DC Cowboys next round.

Mandrake will be my Zatarra

Picked mine up about a month ago at Wal Mart.

Had to dig for this one, lol. Anybody else get any of these? Moon Knight should be here tomorrow & he makes #2. First is the PX Sovereign Knight. Not quite a classic yellow oval Bats, but I dig it. Same with Moon Knight. Can't afford too many of these, but managed to snare my 2 favorite heroes (in my favorite costumes) from DC & Marvel. I'm at 50/50 on Gambit, & probably on WW. I would like to get the trinity, & maybe eventually the Big 7. I'd love to see classic Thor & Hawkman  at Toy Fair.  Afro

Hopefully won't be too hard to acquire. If the exclusive has a visor, I'm betting v1 will be in the wave. But I guess the extras could be the exclusive. I still like the goggles better, but if I can lay hands on this, it's sold.

As for the background art, I hope that cover (hat) on Gung Ho ain't representative of what we'll see when/if we get a figure. We Marines  are stickers about that sorta shit. That may be Gung Ho, but that's an Army hat, lol.

Overall, the exact details on this line don't bother me. As long as they stay in the spirit of the original I'm good.  I look at this as it's own thing, just another imagining of the Joes I love. Been at the top of my toy wishlist for years & I really don't expect Hasbro to disappoint, so I'm stoked.

If it's like the others, I would assume so. Unless the females are designed differently. Wonder if we'll get any surprises Saturday? I ain't expecting Warlord or Ragman, but something like Hawkman or Dr Fate would be cool.

Best toy news for me in a while. I'd also like to see Mezco get a shot at the license.

The only ML Iíve gotten recently is that Doom who is really cool. Especially after a little trim on his skirt.

Got Doom the other day & also Night Thrasher to finish Kingpin. 2 more major holes filled in the ML collection & both great figures.
