GI Joe Classified Series
It's always a pleasant surprise when Walmart actually ships something I preordered. Range Viper showed up this morning, Big Ben is en route.
Ben and the Range-Viper showed up today. In two separate boxes, of course, but hey, at least they both arrived!
I regret not ordering more than one Range-Viper so hoping they’ll become available again.
Only took a day for Big Ben to arrive. Great figure!
Got Big Ben today from Walmart. Really nice. Even better than I expected. And truly big. I wasn't familiar with the character previously, so it was surprising (but cool) to see him stand taller than the average Joe. Range Viper shows shipped. Didn't think that was going to happen after the glitch.
Walmart did better than Amazon this week. Got Big Ben and Range Viper in separate boxes that were the right size with bubble wrap. Both of my Crimson Vipers from Amazon have the boxes torn along the back left edge below the shelf hook piece
Well it looks like I’m done buying till December/January.
Just a little head swap test
Grunt looks pretty good, but the ball joint is too small for the gas mask neck/head combo. It fits snug but turning it no doubt puts pressure on the rod. If you weren't planning on turning the head much, I'd recommend it, looks great in person! Greens match close enough.
Big Ben with Grunt's head fits great but looks a little undersized. It was also a tougher swap to pull the double barbell out of Big Bens head.
Got my Big Ben today, looks great but the fantasy takes on real weapons all suck.
Looking forward to the Range Vipers tomorrow.
Both my Walmart POs also shipped and I should get them tomorrow. So far I've only been charged for one I think...
I received Big Ben and two Range Vipers today. I did have four preordered but Walmart canceled two on me.
Tunnel Rat from Amazon yesterday, Crimson Vipers x 4, Low-Light and Grunt tomorrow.
My range vipers shipped. Wish we were able to order more. No problem eith tsrget and tiger force but nonone wants them like when the 25th was hitting lol.
My Range Viper is set to deliver today, but still no movement on Big Ben. I wish I could feel confident Walmart will actually ship him, but it's Walmart...
I DID receive Low Light yesterday & he is awesome! Really cool that Double Dealer got a chance to work on him again after the awesome work he did on the Pursuit of Cobra line.
I was getting a little worried about my Pulse orders for Ben and Range Viper. Finally got the processing soon emails. In reality, the emails were probably only a day or two later than usual.
Anyone else have quality issues with Low-Light? One butterfly joint has flapping wing syndrome and the waist feels like it's going to snap if I turn it past 30° in either direction. Not sure if the boiling method will help that. I presume it's a ball-in-socket joint. Feels like whatever the female-male joint is they are mismatched shape-wise.
Otherwise I like the figure a lot. I actually forgot about him until I revisited the show last year and remembered he was one of my favorite later editions to the show. Love the gunny sack, or gun bag or whatever it is; but I think I'm gonna clip of the peg off and stuff her in the hole as I will always have LL carrying it.
