I’m all about getting that Zartan! I have four exclusives in my sights and will be hoping on promptly to get them.

For me it'll be Zartan and honestly I'll try for the Filoni Star Wars figure.

I'm skipping Zartan personally.

I thought the Cobra Commander exclusive last year was better.

Yay, another terribly-restrictive overlay vest for my highly-articulated figures! I didn't need that ab crunch anyway. Bonus points if they're lefties, too.
I thought that leak was debunked as just someone’s custom?
oh okay, thanks, I'll take it with a grain of salt for now. Hopefully it's cleared up on Saturday

I never got the first Zartan, and I'm so glad I held out for this one. I like the colors so much better, as well as the accessories. I'm going to pop the Snake Eyes head with the gray visor onto my Snake Eyes figure for a little contrast, and I'm going to save the classic Storm Shadow head for the inevitable Storm Shadow figure that comes with a "Mortal Kombat"-looking mask, like the concept art. Hopefully this head will fit on the SS figure, whenever it comes out. And Zartan comes with a bow and quiver for Storm Shadow too, in case Hasbro leaves that out.

I was Gung-Ho about Zartan, then realized I really was just attracted to a blue version and since I'm too lazy to to put the figure in the freezer more than a couple time I've decided to wait for an all blue-all the time version.

Unless you really care about the useless slide out (but not removable) tray packaging, he's going to be in the main line later. This is just a first release version.

Interesting the it looks like none of the Star Wars HasCon exclusives are going to be available to Premium members an hour ahead of everyone else. I think Disney must had made Hasbro do this. The ML and GI Joe stuff as states it's going on sale at 4pm exclusively for Premium members. Going to be a real show getting any of that Star Wars stuff today.

I really think the flesh tone on the color-changing version looks miles better than the Barbie skin tone of the original Zartan. I do wonder about the quality of the torso plastic, as most of the previews I've seen have shown nicks/indents on the midsection from the chest armor/belt. Seems like it's made of a softer plastic not unlike the AEW Unrivaled figures. Personally the idea of worrying about denting the torso while posing might be enough to deter me from this figure. If they made a permanently-blue version like Mr potatohead suggested, that would be preferred.

hm. No hashtag for GI Joe on day two of Pulsecon even thought it was scheduled.

Probably just Zartan and some minimates nobody wants, and they'll move on to the next property...

BATS are perfect, and the battle damage is a nice addition.

Tiger force vs python parole are target exclusives. Preorder issues mentioned and promised target had has fixed that and has increased their order size for their exclusive figures.

First figure is tiger force outback.
Python patrol viper is next.
Last for this set is python patrol Bat.
