LOL.. yeah. He's helped me out a lot when it comes to bats. He's picked up several of them for me. I think about 8 so far. He still has a few more that I haven't picked up from him yet. So I'll vouch for his bleeding. ; )
I liked the Televiper.. that was a good figure i that set. I think they could have used either different colors or at least move the colors around on the Snow Serpent Officer. The vipers were kinda boring to me. and I was hoping that the Scrap Iron was going to use the same vest as the CP version.. but they used FF's vest instead. I liked the Desert pack all the way around.
As for the SS apprentice.. I think as long as you lose the leg design, that would be enough to make it look more like a different character and still holds the colors to designate them as being SS apprentices. the grey pants would pull away from that and make it more like the SE apprentice outfit we are getting in the CP's
