It's freaking great!
I got 2 of the U.S. Special Forces Army figures, the 2 weapons packs, and the Littlebird helicopter.
I cannot help but praise these. THey're freaking amazing toys, and you guys GOTTA grab these.
Be careful with the figures, as limbs are breaking because they're sticking. Heat them in hot water if necessary, and dismantle the arm then rebuild it so you don't have this problem. At the first sign of too stiff to turn, do this.
The weapons are TWICE as good as before, because BBi actually listened and used stiffer plastic! They're great now! The pistols with tracers are my favorite weapons I think though. My army doods replaced their old pistols with these ones.
The figures have some bad paintjobs if you aren't careful, so watch the eyes mostly. I got a cross-eyed breacher.
He's still got a bitchin' buzzcut though and is a great sculpt. Far superior to 21st Century headsculpts or even Star Wars.
The Helicopter is the highlight of my night. An all-new pilot with removeable helmet and unique head, the helicopter has multiple configurations, opening doors, turning rotors, FULL painted detail inside.
This thing is freaking flawless. And $20... Yes, $20 for this compared to the cheap rehash TIE from Hasbro for $30 at Kay Bee toys... Feel a lil ripped off by Hasbro yet?
I also saw the Dirtbike, recon buggy, and Humvee as well as all the Navy SEALS and the other U.S. Army doods (I Only got 2), but I was a bit too poor last night to buy more.
I wanted to so much though, these figures are simply flawless if you ask me.
The articulation at the elbows still bothers me, and I wish BBi would go to hinge joints instead of the 45 degree pivoting joint for elbows, but I can deal with it and it does work well.
These army guys rock! They're gonna fly off shelves I think, but the SEALS aren't as interesting because they've got the sculpted on ski masks and such. I like how each head is unique, and while sort of expressionless the guys don't look "blank" in the face either.
THESE are the ultimate army builders! Even removeable belts on them! Come on Hasbro, catch up PLEASE!
