    Hopefully that's a silver lining to the retro Snakes Eyes, the door is left open for the commando head. POC head scaled to the stalker body would be a definitive updated v1 Snake Eyes in 4"

    It would be the 4” Snake Eyes to beat for years to come too. In addition to the rocker ankles and thigh swivels, I was impressed that the new Stalker body has elbows that bend beyond 90 degrees.

    Question @Shin Densetsu

    The 2 colored SE and SS are model kits right? Is the AWE striker a model kit as well?

    Also, the grey proto SE, that the expensive Flamestoys figure correct?

    Ah it's tough choice for me to pick 1, espc once you give them all diff heads to give them unique SE looks, but I'd say ver.2 ( with the arah ver.3 head) > Ver.3 > Ver.5 (with Resolute head) > Ver.4 > Ver.1 in that order with those head upgrades

    Cool. Grunt was a figure IMO we still don't have a satisfactory version of in the modern era. A nice Sunbow grey Breaker would be good too.

    Bone-white as apposed to off-white, same same no? Sounds like an argument while picking out colors with the wife.


    Any links to the new wally-world retro carded Grunt and Officer.

    Pic makes him look lighter then he actually is but what can you do? I would rather get the one that was teased back when the line started. No sightings online for Grunt and Cobra Officer but trust me I’m looking ;)

    Those photos are giving me odd impressions. Snake Eyes always looks bored or annoyed in any pose. I imagine him giving a big sigh before each picture. Storm Shadow looks skeptical or lacking confidence. Like posing with the nunchucks it looks like body language is say "What am i even doing? He's gonna kick my ass. I'm in way over my head..."

    Cloth costumes on figures like this never look right.

    I totally see Slaughter getting a normal release in the future, probably without the jacket but I'm fine with that. I'm just glad I got Scareglow.
    Cause a good portion of their sketches are done with Mego-style figures. It's easy to hide metal articulation skeletons under them.

    I'm glad I have a good stand in for SS, these first 2 vers. are ok but they're not what I want, I want something similar to these a7bee84806b54b56104ab0d7940fb8b7.jpg d5d4a934d0445cfd06bdb2f43c74c7d8.jpg d3a63097894e134788a249a22c57c49f.jpg
    To me SS having the ability to have an up or down hood is as iconic as people feel about SE ugly knight visor
