To go a bit off topic-Not seen this Destro before:
Just wondering if he is a mix-n-match or was I sleeping (which is highly likely since so many Destro's were hitting at once a few years ago).

I'm going to assume that was around ROC, which was a bit overwhelming with releases. Like I said I was asleep LOL. Which is what I did most of the ROC run as far as exclusives went.

And I REALLY like the IG head on Arctic Destro. I wonder if it would have peg-warmed if it had been packed like that originally....hmm.
And you've convinced me to sell my POC IG and get the 30th instead. No camo all over looks better than the camo, IMO.
Monte Williams wrote:Oh, so this is actually a repaint... or a depaint, I suppose. I thought you bought the PoC version like I did and Justin did, and yours just inexplicably wasn't painted. Huh. So they re-released it as part of the 30th? That's kinda weird... I am usually all for moving forward with designs, but why re-release something so recent, and if you're gonna do so as part of a 30th Anniversary celebration, shouldn't the color scheme be black, red, and gold?
Anyhoo, I bought two of the PoC version this summer, and I'll be damned if I ever figured out anything to do with them, so I'll likely steal some of your ideas. I'm most likely gonna go with placing the IG head on the RoC Destro body, 'cause I have two extras of RoC Destro as it is that I dunno what to do with.
Also, holy mercy that vac-metal variant of RoC Destro is the tits. I assumed you'd placed the recent suitcase-of-cash Destro head on the body or something at first. Damn, I really like that dark blue, too. May have to pursue that figure next summer.
My RoC Destro body has a Zap head. He's a 1930s Saturday morning serial-type pulp hero, a two-fisted pilot adventurer I'm calling Gray Ghost, 'cause I'm determined to steal that name every few years. Now I'll put two IG heads on the extra Destro bodies and... justify it somehow.
I'm rambling. My new job is kicking my butt something fierce; I can't think.
Charade wrote:My only complaint is that I wish they did a little paint app or dry brushing on the basic figure itself. Not having that red and black camo is a vast improvement, but I wish there was a little more paint detailing. But that's something I myself can easily fix.
I am counting down the months until the new Techno-Vipers are released and you get your hands on them....

If that works, I think it may qualify me as an official Techno Viper.
