Was just coming in to talk about that bad boy. 82 Pounds seems like a lot ( I think, my Pounds to Dollars conversion rate in my head may be old) - but dang if that boat isn't awesome. I'll be hard pressed to pass on it - what 6 inch figures wouldn't look better on a Speed Boat? Very, very cool.

That boat doesn't seem worth $95 to me. It's neat and by its very nature reminds me of the GI Joe Devilfish. But it's so costly. Compare it to some of the MOTU Origins vehicles which are similar in size but a fraction of the cost. Granted, MOTU is an in-house brand and are a bit more simplified.

Just when i thought I was out. I'll be getting both Raptors, the Boat, Ghost Skye and TNT Tina since they are single releases.


Edit: Woah $95? I forgot who we are dealing with apparently. Eff that.

Using the previous currency conversion shenanigans that gives UK the shaft- this will probably be around $80 I think.

Cluck is… another disappointment?

Sculpt is amazing, accessories are unique, but he has one major, major problem.

He is extremely top heavy, worse with his huge backpack, and his legs are just twigs and the ankles can’t support the weight.

Even on a peg stand, he just takes a dive because his ankle joints are way too small to support a figure of his size. I get they wanted to match the aethestic, but he should have had bigger legs and feet.

The heft is the figure is incredible, good value for the dollar, but he just can’t stand worth a damn.

On the other hand, Fortnite Snake Eyes is great.

Didn’t realize his bandolier was sculpted to have boogie bombs instead.

Really, really hoping Hasbro can work out some of the other guest characters on the Marvel or Star Wars side. Deadpool would be a natural fit here.

Yeah, Ragsy, while not designed even slightly like that, can't stand for sh**, either. It's a super bummer.

Oh yeah, 100% agreed. After the fourth time Ragsy fell in my detolf I just left the shelf knocked over. Ragsy was another of my most anticipated figures in this line, but these ankles… they just aren’t cutting it.

Meanwhile Power Rangers, GI Joe, Legends, no problems at all for months.

I think a Can of Beams stand will work for Ragsy, but it didn’t for Cluck — he stays attached to the stand, but dips at the ankle instead.

I think the Ragsy figure is fantastic but definitely need a figure stand for her if you are planning on keeping her on a shelf. Thats the trade-off for having those artistically faithful small ankles
