    If it had Charlie as an accessory figure, I'd buy it. Even at it's crazy price. But as is? I'll stick to deluxe.

    Actually, all told, you'll need 10 batteries unless you want to swap. They could have centralized and gone to AAs, but the parts the batteries go in are all detachable and the wires would be fragile. Two each for regular head, masked head, arm cannon, and two in each chest panel for the headlights. Got my review copy today and it's *fantastic*.

    I wanted to try and recreate what I did with the DLX figure in this scale. This is a 7 inch scale female figure - bashed together from different figs. Below is a 3.75 scale figure.

    Thanks for that, it answers my previous question about the ankle tilt. Lack of it is the only thing I don't like on my DLX Bee.

    Seeing him next to old Bee is neat, forgot how different the old face was.

    Seeing those pics of Bee and Snake Eyes are only further fuelling my wish for a shared Hasbro film continuity.
