Neil Hoffman let me hold the Prototype CG at the Joecon this year and let me tell you, I was blown away by the detail. That and the Doc fig were unbelievable. If the production was are as good, I will be army building about 50 of these CG's.

Why is Hasbro revolver happy with this wave? Everyone's got a revolver... I thought the CG's had a sawed-off shotgun...

But the figure rocks!

as do most of the others, especially Destro and Crimson Guard...

Also now matter how many Snake Eyes figures they make, they still look good!

On toywiz.com it says they are due to ship in Febuary...

I think Snow jobs "pistol" is a Flare gun:confused:

I'll buy one of each just to have carded. Then I'll get a Destro, Snow Job & Flash to open. I would like to get around 8-10 loose CGs. That's as far as I want to go troop-building them. I'll pass on an opened SE, though.

Also, it looks like each case will have 2x Crimson Guards and one of each of the rest plus a Shipwreck (?)

This line started off a little rugged, but is now shaping up pretty nice. Maybe in a year or so from now Hasbro will actually have at least a 4 foot section of single carded figures and vehicles in stores. :D

Destro is The Man With the Golden Gun.



Anyway, he and CG having revolvers isn't so bad. Destro's revolver looks pretty powerful. Now, the CG's revolver looks something out of the wild west. Considering that the original only came with an AK, it's not so bad for the Crimson Guard to have an extra gun. Heck, if they were good enough for Patton, they should be good enough for Cobra's elite soldiers.

Now that Hasbro has made that wild west revolver, I hope they have to the good sense to give a pair of them to Wild Bill; should they ever get around to making a new figure.

the original CG has a revolver sculpted to his leg, so it isn't an extra gun per se or Hasbro going revolver happy, it is an accurate update of the original figure but now with the revolver removable.

Well, so far, 3 of the 5 figs have revolver's (CG, SJ & D..O ). I'm not ripping on the revolver, it is a VERY accurate and RELIABLE sidearm, and it makes sense each of these guys would have one. I could have sworn that the original CG had a sawn-off shotgun on his side, not a revolver, but, what do I know, I'm just a [REMOVED IN FORESIGHT]...

The original CG did have a sawn-off shotgun sculpted on their leg...


I like seeing revolvers but its not really likely a Spec Ops team would ever carry them- theyre far more likely to have a large capacity mag.

I could totally see Destro carrying one though.

Dude, they're so good, they only need the 6-8 bullets (or 5)! :D

I haven't looked, but according to Hasbro the original CG had an old almost Civil War type pistol sculpted on their leg. They wanted to update that somewhat without radically changing the figure, so they went with a revolver on the 25th.

no kidding. I thought it was a revolver...but I am no gun expert. now I agree, what is with the revolver? hopefully a Marauder sawed off will fit in there.

ummm...according to Hasbro. I alway's figured the CG had the sawn-off, like Antonio Banderas in Desperado, and not an old 5-shooter revolver like Wild Bill Hickok. Sorry, I don't know any other people with these guns... But, a CG even with a two shot sawn-off would do a lot, but I guess an 5-shooter... aww, nevermind..

I love the Destro! I always used the V1 of this figure as my leader of Cobra. I never liked CC as my Cobra leader, he was just a figurehead.

I might have to get an extra crimson guard to "Pythonise"
