Scrap Iron was one of my favorites as a kid so I had to get this CP. He's not perfect, but I think he's great. I wish the rocket launcher was like the original one that you had to put together a little more though.

I never liked the original, but I really dig this Scrap-Iron. I think the scarred face is great, it infuses a lot of personality into an otherwise sorta boring fig. To me, it bumps him from "Cobra's nondescript missile guy with big 70's looking shades" into "Jeez, that guy must be really screwed in the head, what a perfect fit for my army!" Wild Bill sucks, has and always will, but I can use those pistols for the Revolver Ocelot custom I have in my head.

Scrap Iron had a big head?! Hell, most of the vintage ARAH figures suffered from over-sized noggins!

I bought Scrap-Iron by himself on e-Bay a couple of days after he came out. Even though the only new thing on him is his head and vest, this figure is just awesome. He's definitely one of my top 5 favorites.
I still have not seen this pack in stores, but when I do, I think I probably will buy it after seeing these pics of Wild Bill. The main complaint, still, is that mold's proportions, but I just really love that color scheme.
And then I'll have another Scrap-Iron to stick in the soon-to-be-released Stinger.

I've always liked scrap iron. The modern version is a great toy with the attention to detail on the face.

[QUOTE=ceraurus;459186]EDIT: I have added a poll to allow you to rate Scrap-Iron! I figured this was the better of the two figures to get member ratings for.
Unlike the Extreme Conditions Arctic set, this version of Scrap-Iron follows fairly faithfully the design of the original 1984 release. The head used has the same mold as the Arctic set, with a black helmet instead of a gray one and the facial scarring emphasized in brighter red (at least on my figure). The body in this comic pack version is different than in the extreme set, using a Viper torso and Cobra Trooper arms and legs.
The included gear looks a lot like what came with the original figure and includes a pistol and a remote-controlled rocket launcher. As noted by Shogi in his review, there have been some modifications to the rocket launcher. The launcher can be put on his back using the backpack hole

AWESOME FIGURES! I wish I could find an extra to buy and open at retail. I haven't seen anything but the latest wave.
