Really? I guess you're right he doesn't hold it that well but one of the guys here on the tank helped me out with BT since I have still never seen him in the stores and I love that fig...I gave him a clear mask but that's about it

I get your question about which figures were let downs and became peg warmers.
People have their favorites and losers for different reasons. I am no different.
Funny thing is when I was a kid I bought them all. I didn't care. If they came out on the pegs, I bought one of each with the exception of Baroness (which I later regretted) because I felt she didn't look anything at all like the cartoon visa vie feminine.
Back in the day, I saved all my christmas and birthday money for then the day came around in March when wally world brought out the next season of Joes.
Back to my point, I bought them all. I wasn't picky and I wish I didn't take them all out of the packaging which I did!
But now that I am a thirty somethime man, I have become picky and I complain and I dis Hasblo unrepentently due to ugly and/or unrealized figures.
Just when I was younger, everything was so innocent and I just enjoyed G.I.JOE for what it was and probably still is. I have just forgotten what it is. I am grown up now. That must be it.

Every figure I have is warming my display shelves. I don't really touch them after I display them.

Tunnel Rat is another that disappointed me. He looks like a Hobbit next to the other figures. I actually put the CP Shipwreck's lower legs on him to give him a more natural height.
Looking for at reasonable prices:
