Another late comer with the Resolute Duke.
Have to say Superb figure & accessories. The only part I`m not a fan of are the gaiters over boots (as he`s not dressed for that kind of climate/weather condition),tho apart from that Totally awesome figure.
Be switching the lower leg or cutting the gaiters off & add boots instead just for personal preference.
This figure all black with 25th SE v1 lower legs,would make for a perfect Black Ops Hauser.

Finally found this figure yesterday. Awesome!
Um, the boot covers have nothing to do with Weather conditions. I was in the miltary, I know.
Really they're used to keep stuff from getting into your boots or pants (mud, snow, sand, ticks, chigers.....). White ones are used for honor guards and such.

I finally saw this guy in the store, went back and saw the same one again, and damn Hasbro for having nothing new out anytime soon...I bought him.
I think he's an awesome sculpt. Why he has a sculpted-in pistol in his holster leaving no home for his pistol, and no place to sheath his knife are the biggest irritants.
I'm contemplating opening a Matt Trakker to use the head sculpt on this figure and make a new guy altogether... I won't use him as my default Duke, but he's pretty cool nonetheless.

It's okay. I don't like the gun sculpted into the holster, can't understand why this was done when so many other figures don't have this. The head scult bothers me, he looks too much like Brock Lesnar. Also the vest he's wearing prevents a backpack from being attached.
I do like that his elbows can now bend. That alone places this figure well above just about every other 25th anniversary Duke.
The guns and colors rock!

I swear him and the Resolute Trooper are 2 of the best figures in the 25th-era line. they're just so well done.
My 25th Most Wanted List:
1. Tunnel Rat <-CHECK! 2. General Hawk (v2)<-CHECK! 3. Leatherneck <-CHECK(kinda...)
4. Jinx 5. Dusty <-CHECK! 6. Snow Serpent <-CHECK! 7. Tele-Viper <-CHECK(kinda...)
8. Falcon<-CHECK (kinda...) 9. Footloose <-CHECK! 10. Recondo <-CHECK!
9 down, 1 to go ~ but i really want a new Leatherneck and Falcon

Anyone notice that the single card Duke and the one in the Resolute Five Pack seem to have a slightly different head sculpt? The single card seems more detailed, a "sharper" sculpt and better painting. Love both figures tho'.
I resisted buying the Resolute Duke for quite a while, thought the great reviews were a little over the top, passed him up in stores, then could never find him. Finally got one and all the reviews were right. I thought they were a little exaggerated, but this really is one of the very best figures in the line.
Also - my son calls the 5 pack Duke Buzz Lightyear because of the winged jetpack!!

Okay I got a 2nd Res Duke & BOTH have the same problem,even the Res Cobra Troopers does. Anyone else noticed how one foot is longer than the other? Not the legs,as I have removed the spat covered boots & used the likes of Snake EYes/Stalker boots instead. The booted feet on BOTH these figures have this problem,why?
