My Baroness is supposedly sitting on my front porch waiting for me to get off work.

Finally received my Baroness and Viper after having it be delayed for 4 days. BBQ aside, I am completely caught up on Joes. Incredible, and not something I thought possible a year ago

Yesterday FedEx couldn’t deliver due to an “operational delay.”

Today they can’t deliver due to a “recipient location security delay.”

But both Amazon and the USPS had no problem coming here around the same time?

Come on.

Fedex is bouncing it around the suburbs of Denver for... reasons. I get that things are delayed and screwy during the pandemic, but going from place to place seems unnecessary.

I finally got my 2 Vipers, the one that shipped last actually arrived first... But I wanted to throw this out there, I managed to squeeze the goggles into the helmet on both without any of the problems we've read about, so I wonder if they changed the plastic used for this production run.

I was able to do the same. The plastic didn't even seem to be stressed.

Are the shins on the viper weird to anyone else? I thought mine were reversed, and so i boiled and popped them and the feet off. I was nervous as heck, considering it’s taken over a year to get this figure. Seems the L and R were in the right place, but it still looks so weird the original way.

Baroness arrived a couple days ago, so aside from the Vipers I keep missing and my Breaker that Target cancelled for dumb reasons, I'm also all caught up on this line for now. Feels great to not have to fret about these figures so much.

Yes, this drives me crazy. I can't figure out why they're having problems with the shins, but going back to Duke, a lot of them have really funky alignment between the shins & feet.

Got my Baroness today, and the bike is a lot more fun than I thought it would be. Unfortunately, my Baroness' glasses sit a bit too high and the left lens has black paint glooped on the inside, so I'm definitely gonna need to clean that up.

On the bright side, I was able to order her with ship to store, so i was able to pick it up 2 days before the estimated date. That is so much better than waiting for FedEx to finish playing package ping pong, prolonging my procurement of precious plastic. I highly recommend getting things shipped to store, if you can.

I personally hate the scarf and goggles on the Vipers, but the goggles look kind of cool and fit nicely over the mask on Zartan. Helps hide the white eyes, which is nice. It really makes him feel like a different character.

The C.O.I.L is actually better than I though it would be. My only disappointment is the helmet fits weird and doesn't look right w/o Baroness' long hair hanging out the back. I may attach some straight hair from another figure at some point.
