Clone Commando Sniper
Join Date: Oct 2007
I just got wave 9, and its not bad. All the Joes had 2 peg stands, the Cobras, one peg stands. Although I don't think I've seen a 2 peg Cobra stand yet.
Snow Serpent and BAT are the highlights of course.
All the gear, and accessories make the figs must have. I especially like how the Snow Serpent has extra peg holes so that he can be posed with his snow shoes on.
The bat is very nice. I like how the claw attachment actually moves, but it feels fragile, be warned. The only minor gripe I had was that if you want to use the hand accessory, the remaining gear won't all fit in the backpack. But I haven't worked with it too much, maybe there's a way.
Hawk was surprising disappointing. His elbows are worse than Duke's, and his left hand, on mine at least, is next to useless. His holster also barely fits his massive Colt 45, but it fits MJ's .45 quite nicely. I did like the headsculpt and legs.
BBQ was also a bit of a letdown with his accessories. He's a faithful update to the original, but as mentioned elsewhere, his helmet is not removable. His identity remains a mystery. The hose seemed a little flimsy compared to older hoses and the ones Smalljoes was selling. It also refused to stay attached to the backpack.
Bazooka I thought was under equipped. He comes with a helmet, rocket launcher and backpack with missles. I forsee similar problems with this backpack that I had with Bludd's. But he doesn't have a side arm. Hawk has holsters all over, even the BAT has a holster, you'd think they could give Bazooka something. He can't shoot rockets all the time. But I guess they were trying to stay true to the original fig.
Ninja-Ku is actually pretty cool. Yeah, its a black SS repaint, but its a classic ninja look. I'm not a fan of the Gold swords and bow, but they can be tweaked. I wasn't planning on it, but I may get another and use them as the next level up from Red Ninjas.
