Ecliptor looks like he'll be Zedd's height. Astronema looks like the same head as the Andros 2-pack, but different paint.

Astronema has sculpted on detail this time instead of painted on, overall a definite upgrade.

Well, the Friday reveals are all solid, if not overly exciting. I logged into Pulse in the early afternoon and got the 2-Pack and Cell-Shaded Pink no Problems. I'm a little unsure on the cell-shaded ranger. But I did kinda want a least for MMPR a set of the team with helmets on (I display them all unmasked.) And I like the accessories; especially the energy/powered up bow.
Besides, I have literally every other figure in the entire line; either in hand or on pre-order, so missing out on this piece would feel weird.

Okay went to a different Walmart than the two from yesterday and found 2 Tenga Warriors on the pegs plus the rest of the wave. I grabbed both and already have the other three from the wave from yesterday's find. I'm glad I canceled the preorder I had with Gamestop a couple days ago.

I feel like I might be the only one excited for the new Astronema figure.

I really want Divatox to show up sooner rather than later.

Looks like Astronema's only reuse is the arms and legs. So they are fixing all the issues I had with her.

I'm not, not excited for it? But Ecliptor is the bigger draw by far. Astronema is a definite upgrade. And I like the hair and sculpted details alot more. But Ecliptor, from these pics, fantastic.

It would make sense to re-use the Ecliptor sculpt again.

They could get Cyborg Ecliptor

Red Ecliptor

And if they really want to push it, they could re-release Ecliptor with the Red Cape;

Yeah, and the face looks better. They've given her a smirk.

I knew he had variants himself. And they could use the mold to do those. I just don't see them actually doing them. Those looks didn't have much screen time iirc. And the cape one would just be normal, with a cape. Of course this is Hasbro. So who am I kidding? They'll probably release an Ecliptor box set with all 3 looks and charge $100 for it. Make it a Target exclusive so you can't find it, and want it even more.

That might be an entirely new headsculpt on Astronema. The shape of her jaw looks different than the previous release. Plus the eyes look different. Seems like she had eye liner / eye shadow or something.

Better than the previous version, but will be glad to have both. Better than a “wig accessory pack”. :lol:

Yup. It's a new face for Astronema. Looks more like the Actress, with the naughty smirk.

Purple is definitely worth getting as the definitive Astronema figure. The previous release did not do justice to her appearance.



And Ecliptor is a massive win;

I'm buying this 2pack regardless of the price. Considering I'm not bothering with their other 2-packs this year.

I'd been waiting to get the In Space Two Pack to hopefully get a sale. Now I'll need a steep discount to want to double dip on Astronema. But that Ecliptor is glorious. He was always a favorite of mine as a kid, so I'm geeked to finally get an update with modern articulation.
