    Okay let's jump straight into the head. I think in person the head from a profile view actually looks fairly good.

    Buuut when you look at it straight on its rather.. cartoonish.

    As for the figure as a whole, I like him well enough. The colors look pretty good on this mold IMO. Kinda wish he had some different weapons, but I have already seen an alternative for that. :p

    Oh wow, it DEFINITELY doesn't help that your fig is cross-eyed.

    Are they all like that?

    Edit: I'm sorry but this just cracks me up. Does he even know where he's aiming in that last pic? Um, color scheme is nice though.

    I like the general paint job, but I predict "DERP" image macros in the future.

    I'm seriously sorry, and your pics are really great, but this fig literally makes me laugh out loud.

    I think the issues is one of interbreeding among the Pretenders with the same mold. Genetic cross eyes are common like this and Siamese cats.

    All joking aside I am getting this figure and do like him despite the odd head. Straight eyes would make a big improvement.

    When I say that I almost pissed myself when I saw the second picture....oh man. :lol 


    But you know.....if he had a white star in the middle of his chest plate he could easily pass off as a Captain America Transformer Crossover. I wanna see this now with that transforming Iron Man figure.

    I would love a new head. Would it look better with a metalhawk style robot head?

    I think my desire to keep this figure will be strongly influenced by the quality of the paint apps on the head. I don't want to be overly snarky it's just...you know, regular action figures get this right all the time. (Well, not EVERY time, but then they don't cost one-fifth of 300 bucks.)
