    I just noticed that Storm Shadow and Outback have pin less arms and legs.

    Spirit doesn’t though. I’m assuming he’s using the Duke/Flint body and legs, but it’s weird how they didn’t use the pin less short sleeve arms from Outback.

    The Spirit character doesn’t have bulked up arms like Outback. Using Outback’s arms would change the character’s appearance. Not to mention, Outback is wearing a tight short sleeve t-shirt and Spirit is wearing a looser fitting shirt. The arms simply don’t match Spirit’s design.

    Should be the secret character in the wave. He’s listed on EE as Meteor which was the same as the retro fig. It’s seeming like they learned their lesson making troop builders exclusives unless it’s repaints like PP. But knowing Hasbro, I could be way wrong. There’s more different on him than I thought.

    We’ll see but things have started to turn for the better after Warden came back.

    Cobra Officer looks good, better than I expected. Now I wish I had 2 more of the CI Trooper

    I honestly keep forgetting he’s back because he doesn’t really make appearances on their streams. He looks so bored on those Power Ranger streams. Artist Tom Whalen posted this:
    EDF68A08-6645-4C1D-A6D5-4F355FB68A79.jpeg

    I wonder if this will be like the last “Premium Exclusive” stream, everyone could watch it. Says they’ll email us a private link before. I’m sure it will get leaked.

    I can't quite tell - is the logo for the Cobra Officer silver, or is it a more realistic/modern black?

    Is its safe to assume that the futuristic nerf guns are gone now? These past few reveals have more real looking guns compared to the nerf guns.

    I'm not good on Vipers. I only managed to score one. (not much interested in paying the aftermarket markup.).
    An additional Viper and an officer sounds like a good idea. Plus if all works out I'll have 3 Python Vipers. 6 in a squad. #SquadGoals.

    Officer looks great! I'm gonna want a couple of those for sure. Everything has been looking so good from the latest reveals, and I can hardly wait to get it all and see how they look all together on a shelf.

    Maybe we'll get to see an Alley Viper today as well.

    I'm still in for a Viper and Viper Officer two-pack, no such thing as an extra Viper. ;)  Still trying to get a PP Viper and Outback secured, but there should be plenty of time for that.

    Yeah would like 1 officer for each squad. I was using trooper as squad leader. But could make 1 infantry, 1 trooper, 1 officer, then just need televiper for communication and something like a heavy artillery trooper to round them out.

    Mainline. He was listed as part of the same wave as Spirit and Storm Shadow in the leaks from a couple months back. I guess they held back his reveal for the Premium exlusive stream.
