It's also not a 25th anniversary line anymore. Hasn't been since last summer.

I'm not so much disappointed at the shirt/gloves as I am the body type... Chuckles is a big dude. Even so, I'm happy to get him. Great character (in the comics anyway).

I think they really improved Chuckles shirt .. his pastel shirt looked too much like "going for a drink on the beach" .. I see this modern guy as rolling up his sleeves for some serious infiltration.

i've been waiting for a chuckles 25th , i dont mind the shirt as much as the head/hair sculpt , and useless left hand . i've seen (and made my own custom of) chuckles using the star wars Awing pilot ("tyco celchu" or something) and i would have went with that look , more tword the new frontline comics series .
but... i fully agree . if i had the choice between this figure or a classic (sky blue / pink flowers / green leaves) figure ... i would take the classic .
my custom is simple using just a 2 pack shipwreck with a tyco celchu star wars head . general hawks holster strap , and switched the leg holster with a knife sheeth, and just used a pink sharpie to draw the flowers on the white shirt , and he looks awsome.

Like i was saying in another thread i have a Theory that this was originally supposed to be part of some night force set, because his colors are dead on to night force colors. I could totally see a tru exclusive night force set being made, and we know they had a nightforce falcon on the way.
But with that being said, i'm really bummed about this figure, the color scheme is completly off. The thing that identifies chuckles is his hawain shirt, now he just looks bleh. I know they have some shirt detailing but it's meh.
Give me classic chuckles all the way. Especially if this is going to be not at regular retail then they have no excuse to say it wouldn't sell at retail.

Go figure, I'm passing on the Cobra pack but can't wait on the Joe pack. I like the Chuckles figure better like this. The hands will be changed out but the rest of it is just what I hoped for. I like the shirt better like this because it isn't so loud. It is much more fitting yet still has the right look. Hell, I think I even have one something like that.

I would have ignored the paint apps of Chuckles shirt and boots if Hasbro would have made a pair of normal hands for it but no they used Mainframe's. I'm passing on Chuckles, Recondo & Wet-Suit(the worst offender of that pack).

Classic chuckles is the way to go. I love the updated figures, however the paint and style lacks on some figs.
Sometimes you can't reinvent the wheel.

Cobra wants you! I'm looking for some ruthless Vipers to fill the ranks. Joes need not apply.
