I got my two figures from Hong Kong today. I picked up the Elite Ice Viper to go with the squad of Ice-Vipers I've been picking up cheap at Target. I also got the Arctic Duke figure.
The Elite IV isn't anyting mysterious, just a standard fig with red paint. It looks good with a lot of weathering and such. The joints are all solid and it looks like a full blown production figure.
The Duke figure is also pretty nice. He didn't come with a jacket, as most don't, but I think one of the upcoming Snow Job jackets might be a good replacement. The figure is pretty nice with good articulation, but I don't like his right hand much, it's not really suited to holding a weapon. The accessories are pretty decent also. The backpack doesn't fit that well without the jacket on but I think that'll correct itself once I put a jacket on him. The rocket launcher isn't bad but since they included that backpack holder for it I think I'd have preferred there to be no shoulder strap. The snowboard is pretty nice but the foot pegs don't hold Duke's feet that well, he looks a little off, but they hold nice so it's not bad. The pack all fits together well with the accessories.
Over all I'm pretty happy with both figures. Next up, Desert Battle Ripcord and Zartan.
