    Have you figured out a way to store the phone? Everything else seems to have a nice place to go, but unless someone has the phone in-hand, it’s just dangling. I’m also unsure about the tape - I’d prefer a peg for interchangeability.

    It is smaller and I believe it’s a model that hasn’t been previously offered on it’s own.

    There’s a spot under the backpack that holds the phone securely, I found a pic of it on the site when I was putting it together. I would’ve preferred a peg as well, maybe they’ll devise one for future releases.

    Ironically, those fakes were impressive as hell. The guy could have made legit money making 3rd party figures or upgrades.

    they did look official like first test prints from Hasbro...similar to the Victory Saber reviews. I would definitely took the head and shield for alley viper and tries to make my own.

    That is disappointing. They were really great, and I was looking forward to them. Oh well, guess that's a few dollars saved and re-deployed... for now, Hasbro! Get on it!

    Yup, sucks hard. Both figures looked pretty promising. Not gonna lie, I hope somehow it turns out the parts were legit and we seen the figures soon.

    Not owning the figures let alone the piece, I thought this area:
    SmartSelect_20210917-074604_Chrome.jpg
    Was designed to cradle the receiver.

    That would awesome...though I wonder if they'd include multiple heads/hairstyles for her. One head with the long blonde hair she had in the MASS device specials as well as some of the more modern comics, or the shorter reddish-brown hair her figure and regular G.I.Joe cartoon had? Or a mix? Long reddish-brown hair?

    I still like my marauder guns, but the gridiron ones are better.
