as i open new figs, i have decided to post an "opinionated review" of each figure...this is "The Jeaux Report"
Sorry Joes for the delay in Beachhead's turn at The Jeaux Report...been feeling under the weather since we got back from Disney...mustve caught something from Snow Job...er, i mean Snow White!
well here we go...
Didnt own beachhead as a kid. certainly glad i do now!
wonderful detail on this figure. the ribbed look of the fabric is great as are the silver buckles and the tucked beret on his shoulder. the backpack, which FINALLY has a long enough peg, fits nicely through the vest without any fear of falling out of his back. and the colored rope and cross bow slot on the backpack are a nice touch. i like it when a figure, especially a military guy, can have all his gear on his person. the vest fits nicely. and that trigger finger looks PERFECT. i didnt have to run the razor to seperate it from the rest of his digits and i also didnt have to cut off the triggerguard on the weapon...and speaking of his weapon...its nice and straight as well as sturdy.
his paint apps are nicely done on the face...a tad shoddy on the legstraps, but the face is my main concern...and even though you only see his eyes, beachhead still comes across as the badass hes supposed to be.
is it all roses though? never is...
on the slight downside...
does this ranger ever work out? those biceps are a tad slim. now i know not all missions require muscle over finesse, but damn, kinda slim. and speaking of slim, if shipwreck can have three guns and a bird, why cannot beachhead have a removable boot knife rather than the molded one he has? gear 'em up to the teeth hasbro!
so, on the 1-5 Yo Jeaux! scale...
BEACHHEAD gets a 4!!

beachhead is the best of this wave by far imo and my second favorite of the 25th line (after firefly).

i have a marauder modular M4 waiting... just for him. (well okay i bought four of them but... he gets one!)
i mean, sure his weapon is cool, but he is an army ranger, so i figure its only natural he use the equipment he was trained with?
thanks for another cool review!
cant wait to get this guy!

Beachhead is easily my fave 25th joe so far (but i don't have Firefly yet) he's pretty much perfect aside from teh articlulation issues that plauge all of them so far....
love the level of sculpted detail on him, just insane.
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
