I'm kinda glad he has a gut and isn't all buffed out - which is how he was in real life so I'm cool with that.  Pretty cool that he'll be at Comic Con for the figure's release.  Nice touch   :)  It'd be nice if the hat was removable, but I suppose he's bald/been bald? so maybe a good decision to have it stuck in place.

He has some hair, but it's thinning greatly.  He was on wrestling a couple years ago at maybe Wrestlemania being inducted in the HOF or something, and I saw him sans hat, and basically he's pretty much bald.  Or near bald.

Can't wait for both versions of this. I'm going to try for the Triple T version, since that was the one I had as a kid, but it's inevitable that I'll want them both.  :)

     I second that, I think the Triple T version looks more GI JOE than the other

Hiss has carded pics of both versions.  Not really diggin the ROC colored camo for the pants on the second version and not sure why the peg hole isn't centered, but I'm still going to try and get both on HTS when they become available...Headache and all included.   :)

I saw both SDCC versions on ebay last night while I was looking for a vintage Slaughter. If you have $40-70 burning a hole in your pocket, you can get them now.  ::) I'll take my chances on HTS.

Not to keen on the weird ROC camo either. Hopefully, it's a problem with whoever took the picture.

I was just looking through my Joe Con photos of Slaughter and, unfortunately, I didn't take a really good shot of either version.  They were on a bottom shelf which had a light in it so the colors are kind of washed out.  I don't even really remember the color of his pants.

I want one of each of these, but I don't think we have anybody going to SDCC this year.

I think I'll try the ole HTS route.

I've had really good luck with HTS every year except one, and that was a gold head Pimp Destro.  I'm not even 100% sure they had that figure now, but I did get in on the silver version.  And I did buy both CC versions last year.

Gold Destro was on HTS, but sold out by the time I got to the site.  I generally have spotty luck with the Comicon stuff as I collect SW, TF, and Joes so something from those lines usually always gets pulled from my cart while I'm checking out.   :-\ 

Read rumors that the Seacons are going to show up at SDCC and will be up at HTS the next day.  Yes that has nothing to do with this thread.   :)

Last year I bought the SW and Soundwave exclusives from HTS with no problem...and the Joe exclusives hung around for a while. 

When the Destro figs when up for sale I wasn't actually at my desk so I caught them a little late.  The gold Destro was the only exclusive that year that I didn't have a shot at, though.

Yeah, but they want $40 and shipping for them.  I'm not usually one to bash the club, but that price is a little ridiculous since it's not a club exclusive item.  I'm assuming these will be on HasbroToyShop.com tomorrow for retail, and the 10% coupons may even apply.
