FSS 5

Ambush nice

Charbroil (helmet non-removable) disappointing

Darklon (slightly different than previous figure) fine with me

General Flagg (Battle Corps) ok

Cobra Viper (Battle Corps) probably will sell

Salvo (Pursuit of Cobra styled) cautiously optimistic

Scoop nice

Raptor ok

Sneak Peek (classic deco) expected

Steel Raven (SKAR Infantry Officer from Club comic) nice

Xamot (Shattered Glass from Club's Adventure Team comic - new head) not sure

Gaucho (Z-Force Mechanic) expected but already made a custom which works
more non-repainted AF please

Great line up. Only wish the hadn't forgone the JvC era character for their own self indulgence broken mirror character.

I'm excited by this line up. I've sold off the troop builders from 3.0 and 4.0.
Not this time, I think I'll keep the Battle Corp Viper. Hope the colors are similar enough to the standard Viper. Officer maybe?
Raptor with repainted Jungle Viper "wings"? I've seen customs that rock.
Never was much of a fan of either Blowtorch or Charbroil.

I really like this Ambush.

Charbroil isn't bad. Helmet is removable.

a big MEH to General Flagg
I do not like the coat choice.
I despise those legs! I would rather have 25th Dusty legs than those.

Don't like Darklon's arms. I'll stick with my custom.

Think Ambush's neck will be waaaaaaaay too long.

Gen Flagg looks like a Russian officer with that jacket.

It doesn't help that they may be using General Iron Bear's head & hat either. So his Russian counterpart is an exact mirror image of him? :roll:

I like Flagg the best of them so far, but not enough to sub.
