Overall this set was an easy pass for me. The Firefly repaint looks OK but not enough to overcome those damn green shirts. I hated them as a kid and even more as a adult. It never made since for a Spec Ops group to have all these guys that just hanging around.

Opened mine finally, the only things I have against this set are:
• Blue weapons with Firefly. Really?
• Redheaded Duke. Come on, like I don't have enough Dukes packed in with other Joes, and I get a redheaded one. The red-headed-step-Duke of the batch, sheesh.
• Duke arms. I know everyone else bitches about it but really... It bugs the hell out of me to be looking at the arms, warped by the plastic-rubber-bandy-things, and just think... The SLEEVE is less than half the arm's length away... PERFECT for a mid-arm joint. Instead, the MIDDLE of the ARM?!?!? How did they NOT think of that design-wise? Seriously?
I think there are 2 heads that are swapped on the Joes... One flesh tone of one of the guys is more orange, the other is lighter... Anyways, I switched 2 heads and they matched a lot better, I can't remember which two.
Also, I found out that "Speed Racer" Speed's helmet and the little kid's helmet have visors that fit the Joe helmets. Pop's doesn't, it's too big. The best fit is the little kid's on the smaller helmets, and although it will fit, the bigger visor from Speed's helmet fits best on the Breaker-sized helmet. I'm sure there will be a good deal of Speed Racer crap on clearance soon, if not already.
FYI, in case anyone wants visors on any of their helmets.
