Nice Kav!

To tide you over, my Valkyrie review..

http://tvandfilmtoys.com/index.php/2017/01/marauder-valkyrie/
Nice, well written review. I totally agree with you on the quality of the paint on the new heads. I had a few waiting for me when I got home. Thanks for writing this review.

Just call them like I see them. Did you get the head pack?

I did get the head pack. They are all really nice. They definitely make customizing easy.
Here are some pics of that Humvee I mentioned earlier and a couple kitbashed GI Joes using some MTF bits and bodies.






All 4 doors and the rear hatch open on the humvee. The turret rotates fully and comes equipped with a Mk19 grenade launcher. I switched this one out for a marauder mini gun.

I saw this yesterday:

They have already met their funding goal. I think it's a pretty cool idea and a nice tribute.

So I've finally gotten around to cleaning and displaying all of my Joe stuff from childhood.  I ordered some o-rings to fix half a dozen figures, mostly from 82-85.  Makes sense.  I also have four figures with broken t hooks - all vehicle drivers from 1988.  Methinks there were some quality control issues with that batch.  Apparently t hooks are hard to come by - people strip broken figures for them.  I gambled on a pack from a chinese reseller (sinodolls).  Sounds like they dumpster dive so it's probably old stuff, but if I get 4 good ones from the batch of 50 I'll be happy.

They showed the flame throwers will have removable translucent effect parts on Facebook this morning. This could be an expensive one.

And I got a refund, no t-hooks, no explanation.  At least I got a refund I guess.

And then the next day the t-hooks show up in the mail!  So, free t-hooks?  It's a Real American Chinese Hero Miracle!

I really enjoy collecting and customizing with Marauder's products.  The WWII figures look great for this kickstarter.  He has a nice "cross section" of soldiers from around the world.  The details are great and the accessories look amazing.  I think these figures will look great on their own or as additions to other existing figure lines (WWII GI Joes, Howling Commandos for Marvel, Indiana Jones).  Anyways, check them out, I have never been disappointed with Marauder Gun Runners, I have been buying products from them for several years.
