BEACHHEAD: **** (4 out of 5)
Although almost identical to the comic pack BeachHead Ď86 release we got in the Main(Data
)Frame comic pack, this BeachHead has some additions (& a subtraction) from that version. This figure is identical in construction to the comic pack version, featuring the newly made/oldskool tact vest & updated (more realistic) head, but does NOT include the alternate half mask or unmasked versions that the comic pack had. He does however include the comic packs new satchel, & rifle/stock (now silver), + the original released BH rifle, pistol (black here), & the original 25th releases backpack/crossbow combo. This BeachHead is slightly more authentic to the ARAH release in color featuring a slightly darker green tone, & more accurately painted vest clips, although the vest is more of a light charcoal color here than the comic pack version's black vest. He also has the added look of muddy/weathered shoes (like Flint) & the HoH gold stand.
If this BH included the extra head & scarf there would be no question which is the better release of the 2 recent versions, but since the HoH version didnít, I almost think they should have made him with the more streamlined original 25th head for this release, as it would have made him a more different product for the HoH release rather than a more geared slightly more authentic paint-apped version of the comic pack release. yes... I left the elastic on the crossbow on purpose...
