Hey. Let’s get a thread going for every single character, shall we?
Seriously though, it’s nice to hear the comments on the figure. Look forward to getting one myself.. someday.

mine came in from amazon today. I basically bought the set for the crocodile aka Fiona, but the Croc Master is pretty darn cool. I love his look. The shoulder swivels on him are worthless though. Fun set.

Looks great! Swap the plastic chain out with a real chain and it will look even better.

Got Croc Master today! Such an fantastic update of the original, which I loved back in the day. Croc Master himself is awesome—love the crocodile armor. Very fluid articulation without any of the stuck hip issues that I have had with a lot of the previous figures. Love his accessories.

The big croc is fantastic! So well done. And the baby crocs are cute. My kids love them. Perfect set! Tempting to get a second to build out a big croc family.

I really love what they did with Fiona, but looking at that Bandai figure really makes me realize that she needs a wash. Thanks for posting.

Overall, I really like this set. Croc Master was definitely one of the weirder Cobra characters that I liked most and Hasbro really did a great job with him. My only complaint is that I wish it came with a better whip. That curled-up thing just looks too much like a toy.

I love this set so much. They really didn't have to go this hard for a Croc Master, but I'm glad they did. Figure of the year territory on this one for me.

It's way easier to keep track of this way.

I wish we had a Sub Thread for Power Rangers because it'd be way easier to keep updates on if there are any In Space Silver updates.

My Fiona and Croc Master arrived from Amazon yesterday and I love them just like I thought I would.

I honestly would have coughed up another $10 to get a second gator in the set, as it is, I now need to keep an eye on the set going on sale to grab a second.

I'm still waiting for Dorkside to charge me for Croc Master. I'm guessing I didn't make the initial cut of orders.

So i've been stoked because amazon charged me for my croc master this week, but once it shipped, it's been a strange roller-coaster, or should i say yo-yo story. Here is my provided tracking:
Thursday, July 7
Carrier picked up the package.
Wyoming, MI US
Package arrived at a carrier facility.
- 1:44 PM
Mount Hope, ON CA -(it's now it's in my province, in my country, an hour drive away)
Completed customs clearance.
- 4:46 PM
Wyoming, MI US -(what? it's at it's starting point in the states again?!)
Package left the carrier facility.
- 6:45 PM
Lansing, MI US -(O.K. we're back up in a state next to my province!)
Package arrived at a carrier facility.
- 8:21 PM
Lansing, MI US
Package left the carrier facility.
- 9:55 PM
Louisville, KY US -(uh, what?! Now we are 3 states below my province? What the wa-hey-hey?!)
Package arrived at a carrier facility.
- 10:59 PM
Louisville, KY US
Package left the carrier facility.
- 2:32 AM
all the while listed as: Arriving today by 8 PM (07/08/2022)

Now I don't think it's not coming, but these shipping locations seem whacked out to me, like a lot of extra steps for what reason? I'm sure it was some error, or a damage, but its been weird watching the old tracking on this one.

*UPDATE*
Louisville, KY US
Package left the carrier facility. -(I thought we did this already?)
- 4:48 AM

Mount Hope, ON CA -(This is looking good! only an hour drive away again. Maybe we will have better luck this time)
Package arrived at a carrier facility.
- 6:08 AM

So Fiona and Croc Master showed up 15 minutes ago. Wow! Pretty sweet set! The only thing I'm not so jazzed about is the plastic chain (which i plan to change), and the whip that looks cartoony (and i plan to change as well).
Fiona is a great figure, i just plan to give her some dark washes and some dry brushed highlights to really make her awesome sculpt pop! I also plan to mimic what i do on Fiona, on Croc Master's crocodile skin parts on his suit as well.
I'm loving this set!
