I have zero interest in having more versions of Roadblock, SE, SS and all the mainstay characters.  Sort of passe, at this point.

Moreover, if the figures are poorly made, than that makes it even easier to pass on them.  Granted this is a movie line, so probably cheap by design.

I'll pick up some figs for sure, but I'd rather ploy the money into customs, the FSS or the Convention sets....more interesting / fun for me.

I'm actually more looking forward to the $1 Joes than most of the movie figures.  SE is pretty cool and the Duke and Duke variants could make good int'l customs.

I will look around a bit for the Dollar Store guys.  They seem great.  Is this Hasbros way of getting collector focused items to us?

Someone called it Hasbro's "love letter to the fans".  Think that is about right.

The more I see of the move line, the less I like it.

Here's The Rock Block with Steel Brigade hands and heavy gun:



It's not perfect but it's better then the right hand with a fixed object in it. I don't know what to call it, other then a bad call.

Here's a size reference for classic figures. I got lazy and used one of my customs I was taking of at the time, but the size reference is still relevant:

He is huge!  Does he have ankle articulation?  No, right?  I think v2 has the enhanced articulation, but am not 100%.

No ankle articulation and only one bend point at the knees. Very limited.
