well... itz the poc destro body but the SDCC head and an alley viper mask.

not sure why this seller gets front paged or even bumped.
if a tanker was selling kit bashes or even another ebay seller...
he'd get torn apart.



Why wouldn't this seller get FP'ed? Is he or his items any different than what any other Asian Seller offers?

So the only difference in the figure is the obvious addition of the AV helmet & head (both noted on the front page) and a running change in the color of the sleeves.

By the way, Goggles, that picture is here too :)

The obvious mistake is the Alley Viper Helmet, he does have what looks like another Alley Viper sans helmet.

His contact, stuffed a fistful of joes in his pocket in a dark alley. Money was exchanged with a hand shake. When he got home, he stuck the A.V. helmet on Destro because he thought it looked right.

my two cents

link to the A.V. looking for his helmet, pretty sure he is the high bdder on Destro to get it back.

I'm diggin' these figs. I like the camo pattern on Duke although he seems a bit bulky. Destro looks good overall, but there's no way I would use that helmet if it does come with the final product.

White Out looks okay. Duke looks great but I don't buy Tatum inspired Duke. The Destro looks like a trainwreck to me.

Plus he usually has several new items every other day, both Joes and other lines. The guy may mix and match parts but I don't think anyone can dispute that the stuff he puts up is news worthy.

Sigh...! I was thinken something more along the lines of the Christmas Story movie when the kid get's his tongue stuck to the flag pole. The image of Destro running around trying to shoot a guy who was stuck to the back of his head is just funny to me.

But if you want troopers making out with there CO's in your Joe world that's fine too. What happens in the arctic stays in the arctic.Just don't let the Baroness find out.

12-18-2009, 02:17 AM
The colors and camo schemes leave alot to be desired. Sometimes HASBRO is able to pull off decent camos but most of the time its like a 4 year old playing with a dull paintbrush.

Would be nice if they make more authentic US Military style Artic/winter camo and leave it at that.


Unsure whats up with Destro. The regular release Destro for ROC wasnt accurate at all(ones that were are exclusives try to figure that out) and was already in cold weather gear.

The Coast Guard rescue colors or whatever its supposed to be isnt working for me.

They should just make a RESOLUTE Doc and thats it.

I'm not digging his 90's colors or the collar. The collar looks like a prepuce, and he needs a circumcision.

I'm wondering if Doc comes with the tubes that go to his mouth from his beer hat.

He looks like he should be tailgating to me.

jaws
12-18-2009, 09:40 AM
This Doc must have the same fashion consultant as the Polar Sharc pilot. Orange, yellow, blue scream ski bum not Joe doctor; maybe white with some red crosses would be a better scheme. I like the big backpack but why is a doctor carrying C4, a multi-tool, knife, big flashlight but no medical supplies? Does he come with a medical kit? And what's up with the big collar that looks like the "cone" they put on dogs after surgery?

samantha

I love the Arctic troops and these figures are a perfect addition. I will need to by multiples to build custom troops.

Trooper13

White Out looks okay. Duke looks great but I don't buy Tatum inspired Duke. The Destro looks like a trainwreck to me.

Know what looks cool? Take a Duke figure and slap a Pit Commando head on him. Then take your generic Pit Commando with Puke head...and slap his helmet, or boonie on reeeeaaaaaallllllyyyyy tight. You gain either a new and improved RoC Duke, or "custom" leader, and another commando to fill your ranks.

This might just be me, but the arctic figures (with the exception of Doc and the Technicolor Yawncoat) are the coolest we've seen. I wish I had a dozen Pit Commando, and masked figure heads to use on arctic Shippy, SJ, SE, and Duke. I think Frostbite is one of the best RoC figures out there. I'm totally looking forward to Arctic Joes and Ice-Vipers being my first real army style build.

edit to add:

Here's a look at a Duke swap...

http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b393/BodiesofEvidence/101_0433.jpg

From left to right: CS Duke with PC head and an M-16, PC with CS Duke head, submachine gun, and boonie (to cover those damn ears), and hanging out is MP Zartan with pistol just for fun. I figure PoC Zartan is a must for me, so MP Zartan will become Joe rank and file.

I think the head swap and boonie hat combo can give you two great figures where you would normally have one if you don't like the Channing inspired Duke.

Thank you, you beautiful bald man! I have no star wars bones in me so I had no knowledge. I was studying it though and it had the joints and everything of a Joe with exception to the hips. I thought maybe some crafty ninja of a chinaman had stumbled upon a secret ROC BAT that somehow had been concealed from the Joe community and I was going to get it and dance in a parade of pride, not to be confused with a pride parade... and show every one how cool I was for purchasing this unknown ROC BAT... How humbled I would have been if not for you. LOL But still, I smell what the Rock is cookin and it smells very much like a CUSTOM ROC BAT....hmmm...hmmm. Thiiiink about it.

Derek2783
12-18-2009, 12:37 PM
I'm really diggin that orange. Looks great to me. But then I'm a fan of orange in general, and I never stopped liking the bright colors on Joes. Neon, not so much, but bright was always ok.

...or maybe it was just the orange I liked... Alley Viper... Cutter... Topside... Ice Cream Soldier... (wish I was kidding about that last one...)

CG82
12-18-2009, 01:05 PM
Maybe Doc doesnt need medical equipment, he just stands out there in the field and takes the rounds intended for the regular GI's and thus saves lives?!

They really over fashion these figures for no reason and get silly.

The Arctic RESOLUTE Cobra Commander I think is the best cold weather variant and goes good with the Arctic HISS and the ROC Ice-Vipers and Snow Serpents.

No kidding! It looks like Destro's spent the whole day MURDERING people... or maybe doing surgery in the ER, but I doubt he'd be wearing a winter coat doing that.

Gotta go with the grey look here, not "bloody sleeves Destro". And if that Alley Viper helmet is actually released with the figure, I'll be laughing my ass off...

The Alley Viper helmet will come with the new Alley Viper that comes with the Rage/Fury. The seller just mistakenly put the AV helmet with Arctic Destro for this auction.

if you check out the sellers items on ebay,he has no or very few names on any of his figures,this to me indicates he aint familiar with the line,its very possible that he grabs what he can from wherever it is in china and puts its online,if someone gave you a big bag of figures and accessories from a line you didnt know could you match them??or even be bothered to look em up??destro probably looked to him like the most obvious to wear it hence he got it.

MrClean
12-21-2009, 03:57 PM
This is why new figures with INCORRECT accessories shouldn't be front paged. Arctic Destro does not come with an Alley Viper helmet. These figures are incomplete, some misnamed, some with wrong accessories.

Someone mentioned using that Duke head for a Lowlight custom, and I think it would work great. It really is a great figure, but with the exception of Doc's colors I think all of the arctic figures are awesome. I may even get Doc when he comes out and give him a white and grey repaint.

I love the convention Destro. I'm not a huge fan of the maroon sleeves, but even more I think the convention Destro had more detail in his body armor it seems. Having the undershirt in grey and the plates in black. This version seems bland in that area, but maybe it's just the camera. That Alley Viper helmet is hella lame, but I think some here established that it's a seller mismatch, not the design, if I remember correctly.
