I'm debating if i wanna use it with classic based figures. I'd use it as a cold weather destro, or someone had a good idea of making him into General Mayhem... especially if they made a black repaint with the red trim it'd totally look like an Iron Grenadier.

I really don't have anything bad to say about the figure. Sh!!t is hot. His get-up has a really man-in-charge type feel which I appreciate.
On the other hand, I don't dig the futuristic weapons. I know he's a weapons supplier and all that, so he gotta be deck out with the latest gear, but I think I'm gonna spark 'em up with a ole regular pistol, or his classic gun. I know the movie takes place ten years later(Blah!), but I just can't appreciate the 'Star Wars' weapons. Hopefully they shoot lasers, just like in the cartoons. Everybody loves that.

No comments on the two peg stand?
It's a cool figure, I just don't get that he's wearing a belt over his coat...
He looks like an update of the VvV Destro, so that is very hip.

Excellent DESTRO I think, but then I love the movie line thus far anyway, especially the NEO VIPERS.

not half bad. probably my favorite movie figure so far. like the uniform, but he looks like he has a strange egg-shaped head and the accessories are pretty bad.

It feels familiar, instead of a bad translation or just completely off-the-mark like many of the other designs I've seen.
I personally think Baroness is pretty much the Baroness we're familiar with, just updated slightly, and this Destro feels like he's a Destro. While not exactly being the iconic Destro, he still feels like Destro to me, but perhaps more realistic. I wish more characters were done like this.
From what I've seen, Storm Shadow feels pretty close to Storm Shadow, although a tad too Hollywood designer-hip and urban for my taste. Seems like a bad Hollywood translation of a "hip" ninja. But I can still identify him as Storm Shadow, despite being not quite right.
Snake Eyes is the last figure I've seen that looks really familiar. I think the movie version may translate a little weird... I don't know why he has a Batman-esque-injection-molded upper bodysuit, yet has regular cargo pants. Seems like 2 different designs were thrown together... Just doesn't feel right to me. I would rather have seen the top not be that molded fake chest look, it just doesn't seem realistic one bit. Quite goofy, if you ask me. It works for movie Batman, but not here. Again, I still see Snake Eyes.
The rest are just too absurdly Hollywood, bad-action flick, overly-art-directed messes.
