    I LOVE the boiler suit troopers! The air trooper is a particular favourite too.

    We need these guys in 6 inch for troop fodder. I was always a fan of the basic Cobra troops.

    Got mine, yesterday. In my opinion, this is one of the best figures Hasbro has ever produced, without a doubt. The packaging really puts it over the top. I'd be down for more of these special releases.

    The packaging, along with actually getting the toy out and seeing the articulation and all the textures present on the body, makes me feel as though there was definitely much more TLC put into this than the average Marvel Legends toy, as though there was an attitude in the office of “let’s do this right, because we may not get to do it ever again”.

    Also, while handling it, I took a moment to appreciate the fact that I was holding a 6” Joe toy in the first place; this whole quarantine thing’s unfortunate, but hey, we got these, and Masters of the Universe is on its way back. Not a bad tradeoff, if you ask me.

    Just opened my "play copy" of Snake Eyes.
    Overall, not bad. The torso joint is a bit loose, and the butterfly joints don't move. Can't figure out if they're frozen or not actually there. Don't want to force them and risk breakage.
    The accessories are pretty nice. Lots of options. Also, I think the nicest pieces are the art print and the small box SE is in. The foil effect is quite nice with the group artwork.

    Alley Vipers would be awesome, but give me Cobra BATS. Can't go wrong with a robot. Interchangeable hands. Plus you could get lots of 3rd party opportunities for additional parts.

    Man I love BATS. Hoping Hasbro understands there's going to be huge demand for troop builders. I'd love to guys like the Iron Grenadiers get some love too, particularly the POC incarnation.

    I procrastinated too long on this guy despite falling in love with him on some video reviews! I doubt there will be a restock no?
