That Shockwave is very cool. Can you say Pyscho-Mantis? Because that's all I'm saying now that I've seen that gas-mask.

I like Destro. the only thing about him I don't are the claws on his boots (at least that's what they look like -- wtf).

Im just glad Tunnel Rat doesn't have Duke arms, as all of my favorite characters have had them so far.

They look to be the removable "snow shoes" that Parka SE had. Hopefully it has some tie-in to the story, although its not clear to me what environment Destro's outfit is intended for.
Also, does Destro's head sculpt look different to anybody else? It looks like he has an even more exagerrated snear than usual.

A lot of people are seeing some Darth Vader mouthpiece on Destro, as did I to begin with. I think it's just the reflection of that neck-wrap thing on the chrome head more than it is much of a new mold.
I could be wrong, but I think it's like the Bludd/Beachhead neck wrap thing, just under the head wrapped around the neck post.
The majority of the comic packs have been 1 figure I really wanted with a second "pack-in" figure with accessories that I could give a damn about.
This still seems to be the case. Sometimes I wish they'd just charge $8 and give us single-carded ones, but for $2 more, you really do get a lot extra, with the comic, and even the spare weapons. And a spare figure, at worst, is good to practice customizing on/disassembly so you're not wasting good figures.
I think as much as we get pissed about the shitty "second" figure paired with the good figure in the CPs, Hasbro's still looking out for the adult collector giving us custom fodder.
Why the hell else would we get crap like the Dice/Budo mask? Whether they give it to us down the road in a correct figure (I don't really want more ninjas, thanks), the customizers on here are going to make the figure they wanted out of it with some paint and parts swapping, and will probably enjoy the time spent while they customize.
The whole "warms you twice" mentality of chopping wood in the cold.

I love that Destro personally...I think he's the gem of these two comic packs! Shockwave is cool enough and Tunnel Rat is a very faithful reproduction, but I'll take the new stuff any day. Destro looks huge here, too, which is cool.
This Destro was labelled "Pilot Destro" in some of the early lists, so I'm wondering if he's in some sort of funky flight suit.
Regardless, I think he looks great. The only figure I'm not real wild about in these 2 packs is the Storm Shadow, but the others are all aces, especially Destro.
