    Do we know where this is actually exclusive to since it's listed as a Partner Exclusive? I typically have better luck going through the actually retailer than Pulse.

    It looks like it's on the same buck as Omega Red.

    As for the lighting... yeah it only works for the one angle but it looks damned cool still. I'm getting hit with so much nostalgia with this release. Especially with the animation accurate headsculpt.

    It's to evoke the lighting from Spiderman the animated Series

    Wonder how good it would look used for V1/V2 Sabretooths

    I get that, but it just doesn't work unless you can always have your Venom displayed next to a cop car.

    Now I'm worried for that rumored Hobgoblin as I fear it's going to have unneccessary cartoon shading that can only work in one direction.

    I think Sabretooth would be great on this buck. Venom and 90s Sabretooth have been two of my biggest wants for redos ever since Hasbro made the new large buck for Omega Red. The Sentry buck just never worked for me. It always seemed oddly proprtioned.

    I love the stupid shading. Though I wish it was pink like his first appearance instead of red from his second.

    I mean, it works cause that's what animated Venom looked like, no matter the lighting condition. There's no way they won't release this figure later with a more traditional color scheme.

    It should be a Pulsecon exclusive this year, but maybe it'll be released at Walmart's collector con thing as well, which is why it's considered a partner exclusive.

    Oh man, I am so down for this. Since this is a MOC-buy for me, I don't mind the shading issue of it being one-sided.
    I am also so sad for the price. Yikes.

    Hopefully, it'll be available long enough for me to buy one.

    Is this a recolor of the old Venom buck?

    A bit late to the party with this one. It’s a fantastic figure. Really really fun. 4BBD59B9-DA5B-4918-8BD6-729EA0885328.jpeg Hope we get more classic suits after the modular releases. I’d really like to have all the main suits leading up to Extremis, and I’d love a new Extremis that wasn’t an upscale of a 3 3/4 inch figure.

    They didn't fill in the holes from the shoulders, so it looks kind of bad.

    I do wish the black was richer on this new Venom figure. Sad to see the holes in the shoulders are still there, but since it's MOC, it's not a deal-breaker.

    Wow, I regret buying the last Venom figure now...I’m assuming they will do a regular release eventually?

    Okay, I guess I do want this.

    Yeah, the port holes on the shoulders is a bummer, especially if I am able to get this figure and decide to open it.

    More shaded look decos is a good sign that I expected to see more and more of. But I guess I’ll have to bear through these poor man’s LEK jobs until we might someday get something that lives up to his work.
