Considering the amount of Dukes, Snake Eyes' and Cobra Commanders I'm surprised that this is only the second carded Scarlett we have gotten. Seeing as she is a fan favorite character and all, we've only seen the 5-pack and carded version and the comic pack repaint. Now we have this new Pilot Scarlett, which is a tribute to the "Glenda" figure from Argentina.
Pilot Scarlett's body is the same as the original release (minus the grenade on her shoulder) with new lower legs, painted in light blue, silver and white. When geared up this figure looks awesome! Not so much when her pilot gear is off, but really, who would want to rob her of her sweet gear anyway? The head looks, to me anyway, better than the first version. Adding a ponytail would make this head a mainstay on any Scarlett figure. As with the first version, she does lack the double jointed knees that most modern Joes have, but it doesn't take away too much. She comes with a helmet, pilot harness, backpack, pistol and her signature crossbow.
Overall, a nice addition to the line and continues a cool homage to the foreign versions of some of our favorite characters.
FIGURE RATING 6.5 out of 10 (double Jointed knees could have pushed it higher)

Head sculpt does look better than the others. Still, money is tight so I think I'll hold off in favor of another figure.

Thanks for the review. This figure is growing on me but I still would rather have had a Low Light or Footloose.

I like this fig alot, in the cartoon and in the comic, just about all of them could fly something so more pilot outfits are nice.

Maybe it's just me, but that head almost looks like duke with different hair.

Looks good. I think that head could work well for a cover girl custom

I think this figure is great and my favorite of the wave with the Eels. and I love the nod to Glenda as an alias on the filecard. I hope we see more foreign figures done like this without be straight repaints.

Eopie, I hope you're starting with the turds and saving the best for last!
I'm looking forward to the other Wave 11 reviews.
You've more than hit the nail on the head as far as my expectations of what to expect from Matt Trakker, Drag Flint, and Pilot Scarlett, and I don't really plan on opening these guys, so thanks for reviewing them so I can at least get an idea of what I may or may not be missing out on.
It's odd that there's no ponytail, I was considering using this head on v1 Scarlett, and perhaps Lady Jaye V1's head on this body (with repainted cap) so that I had a new female figure, but she still looks too much like Scarlett to keep her head, but missing the ponytail makes me not want to use her head on Scarlett from the 5-pack.
Thanks for the review!
