Well i never had the iron grenadier as a kid so i was pretty excited to finally own one. When i first saw the prototype and it was made mostly of Battle cobra com. I was at first pissed. Anyways when i picked up my first one the other day and opened him up all i can say is wow! I really, really like this guy.He does have new lower legs and new head as well as a lot of new web gear so he looks pretty different. I now have 5 opend ones and one in the package. I want at least 25 of these guys. What does everyone else think of him?

I think he looks cool as hell. I had the original and this new one closely resembles it. I doubt i will troop build it though. I don't want all the Destros and comics that come with it...
Selling my entire collection... Check it out...

Might get one or two, then one of the Exec packs. No need for a lot of these guys since Destro tends to be more of a behind the scenes guy (who just happens to be able to open a can-o'-whoopass when he needs to).

hes okay....i didnt have one as a kid so this one is quite a treat.
i do hate however how hasbro packaged him with his scabbard in front of him and turned up.
it forced me to pose him with his right hand on the hilt of the sword so the scabbard would stay down---a job gravity should appear to be doing.
i also dislike that red pistol, being red. if it were black, id like it. but regardless of the color, it still doesnt change the fact that he has no holster to stow it.
and that mega-blaster he comes with! little too big IMO.
but hes a participant in a comic pack....typical lower quality and reused parts...yet less expensive than if he were on a card by himself.

I've got one with my Black headed Destro. I plan to get the gold head when I find him, and then of course the 3 pack. No sense in me collecting more than one of each seeing as I don't open them. But still they look awesome!

I absolutely love it! I'm only gonna get the SRO 3 pack to bring my total up to two IG's though (I still don't know what I'm gonna do with the purple officer, maybe paint him to be an IG) I just don't want all the extra Destros

Yeah, I'm with ya Viper 48, as cool as the Iron Grenadier is, I just can't justify getting all those Destros and comics I can't trade or sell, just to army build. The Fred/Scarface pack was awesome in that regard. Troops should come with troops when it comes to Comic Packs. I'll be saving my army IG army building for when the TRU 3 Pack hits.
I think what's really amazing about the mold, it that it uses one of the most unique bodies (Armored CC) and makes it look totally different and fitting to the character.
