Besides the eyes, the figure itself isn't bad at all and fits pretty good with the Modern Era. The gun is easily replaced and should not be a factor in buying these.

I don't think it's that bad. The oversized weapons will be thrown out and replaced with a minigun from Marauders.
And personally, I'm glad the character isn't called Roadblock. There, I said it.
Why you ask?
Because everybody and there brother would compare the movie character to the cartoon character who rhymed everything he said. And all the Joe purist would complain he's not the wanna-be rappin, ma-deuce carryin', part time chef we all loved from the '80's.
I'd buy this Heavy Duty figure in a minute and make it a proud addition to my Joe team. He easily can replace Roadblock with his funky hand and peanut head as the teams heavy machine gunner.

Haha...this figure should be Link Talbot, given how terrible it looks. The uniform isn't too bad though. LOL@the BFG 9000 comment...I used to play Doom so much and use cheat codes just to beat it, one of them all weapons so I could use the BFG.

Hershel Dalton?! Why the name change, I wonder? That seems pointless.

I wish this version came with the gatling gun that comes with the black armor version. I like this HD, but I don't like his oversized gun, but don't want to get two figures just to get one that I want. Because of this, I'll probably end up either passing on both or getting the black armor one and stick the head on one of my extra Roadblocks. What a shame. I would so pick up this HD in a heartbeat if it came with the other version's gatling gun.

I really want to like these figures so that they succeed, but seriously - no me gusta.
