They also fly off at the slightest wobble. A little blu tac on the back of the helmet to hold them on will be your friend.

My Baroness and Viper shipped together on Tuesday to Indianapolis and just left there today. I wonder if logistics will ever recover to pre-pandemic levels.

Soo.., Baroness was having a tryst with a Viper in Indianapolis? Destro won’t be happy when he finds out.

Managed to get a Baroness/Bike and tried to order a second in a separate order for a friend who has an erratic work schedule and asked me to snag him one if I ever came across one. Target immediately cancelled the second order after I placed it, so they are monitoring if you do the multiple order thing. Will likely just give him the one I ordered since he's more into GI Joe than I, and has been trying over and over to get it. Will be fun to watch him hit the ceiling after trying for so long. Hopefully I don't need to bring a mop.

Placed my Viper order. This will give me a total of four now. Wish Beachhead opened up.

Woo hoo! Got to use that 20% off coupon on the last day it's available with reorder of 2nd Viper, Baroness and Firefly. And my 1st Viper supposed to arrive today. Not going to worry about any more toy shopping today so as not to kill my 1st good batting average in a long time.

Got a Viper just now, but it was dicey. At checkout on the app, it had defaulted so I had to choose my shipping address and payment, which is usually automatically set. Took at least a minute to rectify, but the order went through successfully and I got confirmation. Hopefully it ships in time for me to order just one more, but that’s one I can live without since I just want to keep that packaged.

Ordered a Viper this morning and it’s already shipped

Got my first Viper today from the pre order a few weeks back. A little let down. He just feels super stiff, mostly due to the vest piece completed blocking up his torso articulation and the pouches hindering his hips. And the weird way they did the red design on the legs still bugs me in-person. I don’t get why they made it abruptly stop at his thigh twist and switch sides.

It doesn't exactly switch sides. It was on both sides on the original 3 3/4" figure. But, yeah, the termination of the red pleats is too abrupt on the Classified figure and should continue below (or maybe even around) the cargo pockets on the outside of the leg like on the old Viper from '86. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

The red leg ribbing is one of those design choices which should have been corrected. Screw being a slave to the classic design. Fix it in the modern interpretation. The ribbing should just be in the inside of the thing all the way up to the groin. If you look at it is, it looks like a mistake instead of a design by choice.
