I've been trying to keep up with the ton of pics of Joes showing up lately, and when I ran across Wetsuit, I was crushed!
I thought for sure that we'd get him with an Eel mask - but he just has the cheap Torpedo one!
That totally blows!
Did Hasbro just miss the boat on this one?

Maybe he is not finished yet?

it's because that figure wasn't suppose to be Wetsuit. That figure really was "Diver Duke" that was going to be in a comic pack. They changed his name to Wet Suit to try and get more excitement for the figure.

That and they're using the Eel mask mold for that Eel repaint we've already seen.

Obviously Hasbro wants you to pay another $8 to get Wet Suit with short sleeves and proper helmet the next time out.

I guess all we can hope for is that Hasbro revisits the figure, along with a few others...
Maybe Leatherneck and Wetsuit can get a "best buds" cartoon two-pack with new parts!
Please check out http://hmcsgreatadventure.com/ - it's a mix of sci-fi, humour and the friggin' Royal Canadian Navy, eh!

good question. i think personally, he should get his own mask. but would settle for a eel mask, cus i'm not diggin' no mask. real weak move. i'm just hoping the pics we seen are just not showing the helmet...i hope.

because he's just a Torpedo repaint, and that is all he's meant to be. they were never attempting to make an identical Wet Suit figure, just one close enough.
