Out of all the releases for this wave, this one is the best. I totally dig the Gung Ho color scheme, and an extra Armored CC is a plus.
Haven't found any of this CP wave here in Chi-Town, but can't wait!!! the GH (espceically with fixed leg joints) will deff. become the new default, and the CC is simply custom gold!!!!

I will have to say, unless the colors awe me in person, this was a totally wasted CP. Sure, the GH colors look better than the tealish colors, but honestly, the first Gung-Ho was as close to Gung Ho as we've gotten so far. I do like that the chest tat is better (darker), and the skin tone is less zombie-like, but the head is still not Gung-Ho, and I don't like the head on this one either. And when the hell did Bazooka and GH switch mustaches?
This entire wave could easily have never happened, and I would be okay with it. I think the gems are the IG/Viper set—as it's a pure repaint but done right—and the Deep Six/RnR set, since it gives us a better RnR and a Deep Six without having to buy the SHARC. This pack? Lame repaints, almost as bad as the CC/Duke from Wave 1, but not quite. At least these are better characters and don't look AS bad.
I hate this CC, plain and simple. The first one looked so much better, and the red on this one just looks bad. The blue is too vibrant, and there's absolutely nothing new to this CP at all to make me want to buy it. Gung Ho is easily the better half of this set, but I can't justify buying an opener just for that.

At first glance this CP was a pretty big turn off for me but when I realized the CC had a Fred head under the helmet I was a slight bit more excited. Once I opened it up the Gung Ho grew on me a little more. I'd say over all this CP is pretty good at least better than the Deep Six RnR one in this wave.
Also note the CP CC's gun and backpack are molded in a slightly different color than the single carded one. Someone should put up a side by side pic. I'm not at home or I'd do it myself.

I gave the pack a ten. I love it. I had planned on using a Fred head from a Crimson Guard to make Fred VII when I picked up this comic pack. I was so happy when I removed the helmet and discovered it already had a Fred head. I was glad to get Gung Ho as well as I started collecting the line just this past summer so I missed the previous version of him. If you want a Fred VII figure buy this comic pack. Its cheaper than picking up an Armored Cobra Commander and a Crimson/Scar two pack to make him. The Gung Ho is a great figure as well.

I hope there's side by side pics of previous 25th versions when doing reviews. It helps one decide.
Anyway, Gung-ho color looks more realistic.

Eh. I would have been all over this pack if he had the snake-man DiC cartoon head under it, but that boring old Fred face? Pass. I wanted Cobra Commander, not his stand-in.

It was introduced on the cover of issue 58 and he wore it the first time in this issue as well.

gave it a 2 just because there is no reason for another crappy CC repaint.

I learned a lot from this thread about Fred. I never read the comics and was wondering about the "fred head" mentions in previous threads. The back story seems cool, and to have CC stand in seems like a cool idea. I'm gonna get the pack. Thanks Vader.
