I’ll admit it– I’ve fallen a bit behind on getting these posted. Too many trips on the road for work and some pesky house issues around the JBL photo setup have pushed reviews back a bit further than I would have liked. Thankfully, after this week, much of the obstacles to publication will have been removed and we can get the review train rolling again! After all, there are a few three packs and the Silent Strike set yet to cover! (The Rock Rampage 3-pack continues to prove decidedly elusive.)
The Swamp Steam pack has the distinction of being the set that few people saw coming during the Hasbro reveals at Joe Con 2015. Based on two cancelled Pursuit of Cobra figures, this set finally puts the more tactically-colored Blowtorch and the Python Patrol Croc Master in the hands of fans after a four year delay.
Was it worth the wait? Are these figures worth adding to your collection? Will the name “Swamp Steam” ever make sense?
With the pre-orders selling out at ToysRUs.com in just a few hours this is a great way to get at least one of everything by ordering a case, with FREE SHIPPING, for $119.99.
