Depends on the media. In the Cartoon and comic he had rolled up sleeves.

The last thing I want is this Shipwreck. I'd much prefer the modern look. Any modern look.
That would be my preferred look as well.
I mean . . . I don’t *not* want a “classic” Shipwreck. He feels like an absolute perfect fit for the retro card line, as he was practically the main character of the cartoon for a while. Buuuuuut I very much agree that my first choice for Shipwreck is a more modern look: I particularly love the “longshoreman” look from the Devil’s Due comics in the 2000s with the grey pants, blue combat sweater and beanie cap, and the shoulder holsters.

Looks like it’s from the basic line for the SE movie.

The basic figure Creeper was back in stock on Hasbro Pulse for $10.

Sadly, I have seen the Creeper for as much as $20. The same with the basic red ninja.

I hope no one is paying those "Classified" prices for basic figures.

So essentally version 16. Yeah, I'd buy that. This version probably not.

I'm not averse to the modern Shipwreck design, but if we get anything other than a faithful recreation of Shipwreck's original look for his first figure I'll burn this world to the ground.

Check Target stores, I just picked up the Night Creeper on clearance for $7.69 on Saturday.
Oh, and give me classic OG Shipwreck! Keep the stealth sweater with watch cap for the second Shipwreck release.

8) Thanks but..............

My "local" :evil: Target is one of the places that had the basic movie figures for $20.

Target.com will not ship the MSRP priced $10 figures to my zip.

I ended up ordering two from BBTS at $12 and then one more from Hasbro at $10 when they restocked.

That looks excellent!
Did you switch over the arms from Gung-Ho and repaint the torso?

There's a figure with vehicle rumored to be coming later this year in Classified, and rumors that Sgt. Slaughter visited a toy company rep in Rhode Island in Oct. of 2020. I think a possible Sgt. Slaughter with Triple T could be that classified figure.

I'd be very happy with a Sgt. Slaughter that looks like that custom of yours 1987olds442!

There is a rumoured Tiger Force Duke coming with a vehicle.

I fully expect to see a Classified Sgt. Slaughter at some point. Robert Remus owns his character.
