So for international copyright reasons hasbro couldn't use the name Rock n Roll for this figure? Crap I've been waitin on a new R&R for years and now this. Does this mean we're going to lose many other of our favourite joes due to this problem? Will Falcon change to Lnt Condore? Was it hard to make a U.S exclusive variant R&R and release him as bench press everywhere else?Either way I'm grabin this fig and wackin on a machine gun and an ammo belt on him.No copyright laws will stop me from usin him as R&R.

I like the Bench Press figure, a shame they had to use an already used filename though.

OK, I'm mollified by this. Hopefully this means that they'll be fixing the file card before it goes into full production.
Still, that seems like something they would have caught....

Has anyone mentioned that Bench-Press looks like
That dude from Ocean's Twelve who "beats up" George Clooney? lol.
I'm actually going to grab a Bench-Press because of that. Have someone paint more tattoos on him and give him a dorky smile. That would so win.

I dunno, I kinda like that Benchpress. Not for any specific custom, or to use as-is, but I like him. They used a good torso that I was wondering how they'd reuse it (Bazooka? He's a horse. Not too many other Joes it'd work for besides the Fridge, and I doubt we'll get him outside of some obscure exclusive...) Heavy Duty's legs are way better than Bazooka's because they bend at the double-knee joint, something the 25A larger guys were lacking, so at least they've finally fixed that...
And I really like Clutch's head. I can guarantee that I'll use this one's head for Breaker, and the body for someone else... Updated "Pathfinder"? I guess if he got diesel, perhaps.
Overall, I think he's one of the better Hasbro FrankenJoes.
