    Was he able to successfully purchase it? Most people are getting street-dated if they find them.

    Not sure if it was shown, but the Classified Cobra Trooper should be able to store 1 of its guns on its back, at least it was designed to

    Dying plastic black, rarely turns out as expected. Often blotchy, often muddy or purplish. "True pure black" is possible but very difficult AFAIK. If your only goal is to make Beach Head's guns "not bright green", then go ahead. Just don't expect them to end up looking like they were molded in black plastic.

    Basically----any existing color, means the plastic "already has a color", and is reluctant to take a new one. And "true black" dye doesn't really exist. It's almost always "very dark blue" or "very dark purple".

    I'd suggest just painting the barrel/stock black, and leaving rub-prone areas bare plastic.

    Beachhead will look good with the Scar 17 from the Action Force weapon pack.

    Not every plastic can accept dyes as well. I've tried dying a ML figure, and the limbs and torso turned out differently. I think the limbs rejected the dye. You can always try dyeing the guns and see how they turn out. With them already being in a semi-dark color (not light anyway), I doubt the black dye will override the green. It may darken it into some other hue, but I don't think they'd turn out solid black. Maybe just paint certain parts of the gun to break up all the green?

    I was able to grab one for $19.99 about an hour ago.....within minutes.....poof! Gone.

    Just keep checking. Eventually amazon WILL have Destro and Snake Eyes in stock for retail.

    I’ve been lucky with dyeing in the past. I haven’t tired to dye a ML figures though. I am going to try and dye these first. I am not sure if these are too rubbery to take the dye but painting them is going to look like shit.

    That website is showing only Roadblock available in the Phoenix area. Are Target cashiers just waving the street date?

    So are these selling by straight case for each figure? I hope I walk in when they put a case of the cobra troop out because I think I need at least 2 if not 3 of them.
