So I just got the first two of the 5 packs from BBTS. I have to say the presentation is fabulous! The box is gorgeous and should pop out on the shelves. Each figure is packaged in an action pose, and there is a nice GI JOE insignia in the middle that plays the beginning of the classic Joe cartoon theme.
Besides the cool shape of the box, it can flip open so you can look inside without having to disturb the figures (I couldn't do that, I was too excited!!!). The back also features some really cartoon, and toy box art, and a few of the old joe toys themselves.
The figures are very well articulated (HOLY $#!^ are they), and they have great proportions, and super-super detailed bodies.
A couple of negatives...some big some small. Where's my shiny solid plastic? This soft plastic looks okay, but it is not helpful, and leads to my second issue...they CANNOT
hold their weapons well at all. The hands are too soft, and the weapon handles are too small.
Another negative...with all the joints and articulation they tend to be a bit loose in parts. My Gung Ho was particularly leg loose, which is frustrating.
However, these are beautiful figures that well represent the characters from the show, and include lots of details and weaponry that is applicable to each (Roadblock-30mm with stand, bullet belts, backpack and removable helmet, Duke--helmet and binoculars...etc., etc.).
Anybody else got these, or at least interested in joe stuff and want to have conversations? If no, I'll head on over to the Joe Collector's Club forums, I just figured there might be some cross over here too, not just in the comics!!
