Might be getting lost in the pre-SDCC hype, but BFS released new images of Popeye stuff -- deco samples.

I appreciate the more strip accurate looks but seeing this Bluto now, I wish they'd went with the flesh tone arms as opposed to the long johns. It's clearly what they'll be doing in a variant and it just doesn't read as well to me as I thought it would. Otherwise, looking good.

Amazon just canceled my preorders for wave 1 claiming they are Out of Stock.

Dam, that Popeye looks fantastic. i have the vintage Mezco (not the recent one) and im pretty satisfied with it but this one is more articulated and a tad taller.

They have dropped into my PoL!

Well, three of them. I don't know who Castor is, so I passed on him.

Picked up Popeye, Olive and Bluto from my LCS Wednesday. Will get some pics later today after I'm done running the day's errands.

It’s BossFight, so I assume the quality is good, but how do they feel? Pretty solid?

I threw the roughly 4" Fury Toys not Leo figure for a scale reference. They're roughly a 5" scale, with Bluto being taller and the 4th figure (who I didn't get) being shorter.

thefamousnicknaro, they feel pretty solid. Not ML or H.A.C.K.S level articulation, but they move well enough from what time I fooled with them today.

It might just be mine, but Sweet Pea's hat doesn't sit right on the head, as it covers his eyes no matter what I do. Either the magnet in his head or hat is reversed or misaligned. Nothing a little blu-tac won't fix.

Popeye's hat never looks like it's flush on to me in any pics I've seen.

How easy would it be to cut off the hair do you think?
