I use "arrive" lightly, I had to go pick it up from the carrier since I missed it yesterday.

At any rate, here are the pictures:





He used the "use two boxes that are too small on their own but just right stuck together" packing technique.



The box is larger than I expected.



The new booklet.



The box art in the back actually has a 3D element to it, which I didn't expect, I assumed it was just flat art.



So there's a space behind the mountains.



All out and equipped.



The new dog tag with the bullet hole Action Man logo.



The face. Not as bad as I've seen others are. Maybe the lips are a bit prominent, but I've got some paints for that. The flock, within the first few hours, seems pretty good. We'll see in the future though.


The hands, yes are stiff, but no stiffer than I remember the Timeless GI Joe Adventure Team figures.

He may be a little tight, but I've got the patience.



Is he perfect? No. But frankly none of my figures are perfect, so I don't have the impossible standards that you guys have. He's a good figure and I'll do up his name and dossier later.

As Dreadnought requested on HQ, some nudies. lol!



Ready for action!



At attention, ahem, Privates. Laughing



Unaided, standing one footed.



Ditto.



Crouching/covering.

Pretty darn good, in my opinion. While it may take a little more effort to pose him, because there is a lot of tension, I'm not going to lie, it's not so much to as render him un-posable.

Very nice as I've said. He looks a very decent example.
I must strip down my Paratrooper and see does he match up.Very Happy

I went ahead and removed the scar and lip paint.

Much improved, no?

I would have taken some outdoorsy snow pictures today, but I awoke this morning to find that it had gotten really warm last night, and nearly all of our snow is gone! Sad

Hope it comes back. Smile

Never fear, Ian, this one beautiful day in the 60's will end tonight when they tell us the temps will again go below freezing with a winter mix...

The color was a little too vibrant in person. I may replace it with some proper paint later.
