Barbecue is a perfect upgrade from the Original ARAH Version. The new improved chest plate and shoulder pads give the figure much more depth. After all real fire-fighters carry around a lot of bulky gear and the original was not as well rounded.
The head gear is not removable but the shoulder pads are. The Fire Axe and Back-Pack Extinguisher are Classic gear. The only issue I see with this figure is the left hand not being able to hold the Extinguisher Gun correctly forcing you to only be able to use the right.
The potential for customizers to re-use the body and gear is endless.

Too bad you can't remove the helmet. I would probably of boughten a few more than needed to make a fire team squad. The figure looks awesome. Thanks for sharing.

Hey Destro, thanks for sharing. Is it possible to get a pic without the shoulder pads? Also, how's the size of his head? Is it big enough to be hollowed out?

Well I'm impressed!
His chest unit looks to be a wee bit too high on his torso to me, but other than that it's another good'un from Hasbro.
