well, Firefly is essentially a repaint like I predicted. same backpack as the CP version...body looks the same. He just has a different gun, no vest, and no goggles/glasses. I like the trooper. Perhaps I'll pick him up if I see him at retail. Otherwise, I'm glad I just order Blowtorch.

BTW, I just Youtubed Countdown to Zartan and Cold Slither, and what do you know, Torch's vest was brown in the toon, so I guess the W13 one is show accurate other than the headband.

Awesome, Duke looks cool as hell. Blowtorch is great and so is the other Resolute characters. Can't wait to own these.

Wave 13 is WAY better than 12.
Except for the 2 M.A.S.S. elements (and maybe, MAYBE the diver), Wave 12 could have not existed and I wouldn't have cared otherwise. I can't even say that for Wave 4, which was a DIRECT repaint wave. It's saving grace was they were core characters, single-carded. Which was nice to have.
Blowtorch looks great! Sorta sad that he's the only new one in this wave I'm looking forward to. I'm actually pleasantly surprised by the rest of the wave though. I was expecting more bad repaints.
Not a big fan of the CC, but he doesn't look bad either. He reminds me of VvV as well (or something similar that came out in the last 10 years that I wasn't interested in). Wonder if they'll do capes like that in the future? Instead of crappy ones like Dusty's cloth or Serpentor's cape? I hate that, they always look silly at that scale using full-scale cloth.
I think the Resolute guys fit in with the 25th just fine. I'd rather have my classics, but hey. Also, I'm glad that the classic updates are on the classic cards, and I'm fine with the Resolute crew having new logos.
Not a fan of that Firefly, he seems a tad unnecessary.

Hmmm...maybe Firefly is an homage to the VVV Firefly, though the only similarity is that both of their shirts were blue, but the VVV version had a dark, violet blue. Closest thing I could think of, but even then it's not a direct homage.

Blowtorch is brilliant, but I think those Resolute figures look absolutely awful... No ta!
