Really hoping the other figures coming this week are good on QC, too. Got charged for Spirit/SS/Officer and I believe (?) Pulse has shipped them all, but I don't feel like scrounging through their weird order history to check for sure.
I haven't had Spirit or Storm Shadow ship yet, but I got charged for all three as well. Also, if you go to the website and look at your orders, you can type in a figure name in the search field at the top and it will pull up the order in which they are included. It makes it so much easier to figure out what is what.

Spirit wave, Croc Master, and my long-awaited BAT are all on the way from Dorkside. This will be a big package, I'm going to enjoy it!

Yeah, I got charged by Dorkside for Spirit/Storm Shadow/Cobra Officer case plus a Croc Master, but no movement yet. Also have a Croc Master coming today from Pulse, and a Storm Shadow from Pulse tomorrow. No movement on Spirit from Pulse, even though they charged me for him like two weeks ago.

Got Fortnite snake eyes today from pulse. Nothing really new to report other than his pistol and knife are molded into the holsters for this release.

I got the Cobra Officer today from Deep Discount and I really like how they simplified the design back to a more classic look. I still like the Cobra Troopers that we've gotten, but this one is my favorite.

Thanks for this! Just grabbed a Cobra Officer from Dorkside- he's listed as a New Arrival, no preorder.

I'm jealous. I'm hoping to see these in stores eventually. The officer was my favorite figure of that 1st wave 40 years ago.

Paint apps seem good compared to other domestic action figure lines. I recommend just ordering online. Most QC issues aren't even visible, they're articulation issues.

Speaking of QC, I finally started using super glue to tighten loose ankle discs and couldn't be happier. My Alley Vipers can STAND now! Just plop 'em down stand, not "fidget with balance for 5 minutes only for them to tip over 30 seconds later" stand.

I also opened my second Spirit, but this time he got a 30 second hot soak, 30 second ice cold soak, dry, silicone shock oil to the hip balls, then some gentle leg circles to spread it around...MUCH better than any other approach I've used. Not a single stress mark on the plastic hip bars.

If you feel like your figure can't lift their leg properly, don't force it! Use a drop of silicone shock oil (I use Factory Team 40w) on the hip ball joint and do increasingly wider leg circles, starting from small, working your way up to large circles, clockwise and counterclockwise. Save those hip bars! You'll be glad you did when you see posts about figures with shearing hip pegs.

Got the officer today and love, love the array of accessories he came with. Just a great figure. Storm Shadow arrived just now and cracked him immediately out of the box. Hip joints are a little tight (lots of ratchet clicking) but otherwise an excellent figure, like him a lot more than the previous SS release.

Spirit shipped from Pulse last night, probably get here tomorrow if the alert to arrival pattern continues. Great week for Joes.

Still waiting on my Storm Shadow from Game Stop, so you aren't the only one waiting.
