Im going to do a quick review of these figures since a lot of yall have yet to buy them!
This is also located at my blog. GIJoe Toy Blog
Cobra Commander- I would imagine that with some xacto work on his skirt he could be epic but as it stands he cant move due to it. He comes with a sweet sword and really cool german lugar pistols.
Res trooper/Officer- This is a fantastic sculpt. The helmet prob needs to be glued down because otherwise its gonna fall off when you play with him. His legs have a certain style about them, almost like a superhero, small lower body big and bulky upper. These figures are perfect, I wouldnt change a thing other than maybe the weapons. The cannon is freaking sweet and actually looks very realistic.
Res Duke- He looks terrible with his helmet off b/c his head is huge, with it on he is fine. His flight backpack is pretty cool and creative. His helmet would be great for customs work, airborne helmet or airtight helmet would be very easy to do.
Res BAT- I thought I was buying the pack for this figure but I actually like the Res troopers better. He has a great color scheme that looks awesome in person. As always his neck needs to be lowered just like any other BAT. He has the only quality issue out of the pack. His arm accessories do not stay attached to the peg during play, for some reason they just dont do as good as the single carded arms.
Overall this pack is really great, I would suggest buying it and selling the CC off for 6 bucks shipped. The quality control seems pretty good although the BAT face mask seems hit or miss and his arms dont work well. Other than these few gripes this pack is worth every cent.
9.3 out of 10
