Go figure, Yankee... I am also puzzled by why hasbro never reissued its muscle body on, lets say, any convention or club sets and let gayperman be reissued.

I am curious to see what changes (if any) Estrela will make in the body.

The Hasbro muscle body looked good but wasn't that good a design.

Well... "Falcon" is pure nostalgia for me. It was my second action figure and the one I have till this day. But putting that aside, I agree with you. I am not a huge fan of muscle body and when I found the dynamic body... that was the nail in the coffin. I think that palitoys did an awesome design (I am a designer myself) with that project. It is everything that muscle body should have been or, so to say, the true next step. it is a shame it was never released here.

I think that an awesome combo/bodybash that i hope assemble some day ($$$) Is putting a hobbycash arms into a dynamic body with soldier story pegs and hands. Smile

Yes, that is the question!

Considering Cotswold's history, I'd say chances are pretty good.

Hi, guys!
Sorry, I just got the email warning about Yankee question now.
And sorry for the late reply but yes, I can confirm that cotswold has indeed interest in selling these new figures, they posted something about it weeks ago.
The last news I heard is that they are considering the possibility of selling it. That is something they have to settle with Estrela of course.
I will post here as soon as get more news about it since it will be far more easier for all of you buy the figures through them.
Oh and another thing, Estrela is already experiencing the sucess of the relunch through social medias etc and they are considering more 2 figures for the next semester, after november possibly!
And so far, they indeed confirmed the first two figures:
- Turbocopter, pretty much the green outfit AT with yellow tubocopter.
You can see it is already aviable on Estrela's online store.
www.lojadaestrela.com.br/falcon_turbocoptero/p
- Explorer. Kinda of a new set, basically the one I posted before. It mixes parts of Jungle Survival with the 90s T shirt released here in  Brazil (white then, black now) and a totally new camo pants (I liked it a lot).
http://www.lojadaestrela.com.br/falcon_explorador/p
I dont know if Estrela will offer international shipping but if I got this confirmation of course I will let you all know.
Also dont forget that, although the photos show eagle eyes Falcons, they said the first wave will have painted eyes. But of course things change. Just take these with a pinch of salt and not as photos of the final product.
Cheers and dont hesitate if you have some questions! Very Happy
cheers

Great news, everyone.
Estrela updated his site with - what seems to be - the final shots of the new Falcons. Not only that, they also placed both versions in preorder and have a release date: 14/july. The pics also confim the previous information from Giovanni that the initial wave will have only painted eyes. ALSO we will have a comic con here in the next weeks and Estrela showed interested in released a third figure there (not exclusive, it will also be aviable on stores later).
As you can see, they also showed what seems to be the final version of the box and they scream "Adventure team" and also the first wave of Falcons back in 77-78.

The head sculpt is very good, they've done a good job, but why the big oversized buttons, were they that big back in the day? Cool
