No these have not hit US Retail, however I obtained this figure through Alliance Collectables, at the fair price of $11.95.
Mind you some of the pictures are blurry, par usual with me. However today I've had two tornados hit my city, so bare with me.
The clamshell is flimsy. Not as sturdy as I would have expected, but non the less it's nice, as far as clamshells go.
I then began to open the clamshell, being carefull not to damage the figure. I noticed that the two emblems on the top of the shell are what holds it in place, much like a button. These bottons are aided by two strips of tape along the side.
I then opened the box, and the figure just fell out. Nice and easy, no twist ties or anything.
This figure is loaded with articulation, and can hold many of the modern weapons.
Speaking of weapons, the gun is made of hard plastic, as is the rest of the figure. Very nice.
Next I began to size him up next to other figures, and, well, take a look. He appears to be the perfect match.
So that's it. I'm quite pleased that Hasbro actually made something good. I'm more displeased that the figure came today, as I went to bed at 10 AM, and awoke at 1:00 to the first Tornado. However I digress, this figure is a perfect 10.
