I like the very 1970s sci-fi vibe I get off these designs, particularly in these colors.
Dead Man Walking
I got one of each of these, but I find these very underwhelming in terms of color choice compared to the first two. They just look kind bland. The lighter one kind of has a color that reminds me of brown rice. If they're going to keep doing these, let's get some red (like Crimson Guards), or blue with a silver dome (Cobra Vipers anyone), or purple. Just something more vibrant and fun.
As cool as the variants, it seems like they are never going to release the actual figures. I’d get the remakes of the old figures but the variants, while cool, just don’t hold the same weight.
They'll get there. But as with the Outer Space Men, the 4H need these variants to help fund the entire project – probably even more so, since the added articulation likely it cost more to produce these figures than the OSM.
I wasn't going to, but I changed my mind and picked these up; the FHM have a way of hooking me in to their variants with good color choices. I hope for the sake of the line these sell out soon, but I also hope we don't see too many more variants before we get to the core characters.
