cmderinchief’s had a busy Saturday today… we all know that when he’s not lurking around the Coil Club, he’s wheeling and dealing for early samples and dazzling us with pictures of stuff that won’t hit retail for months. He comes through again today with a couple pretty neat pieces (depending on your frame of mind).
First of all, what has turned out to be a very controversial item, he’s posted some very nice images of the upcoming Crimson Strike re-do Tomax over at JoeBattleLines. While the figure looks really nice and compliments the sculpting well, it has caused some fandom rage due to it being used in a Convention Exclusive at a premium price. I’ll try to avoid getting into that bruhaha here (everyone knows my stance on that by now), but here are the images:
He has also posted a nice assortment of images for the upcoming “Reactive Armor” version of Scarlett from The Rise of COBRA. I can’t really explain it, but this figure rocks my world. The sculpting and detail paint apps are really nice…the head sculpt looks great (at least on this version of the figure) and I really love the backpack-mounted grapple system and the crossbow that comes apart and stores in the holster. Some very nice pics of what looks like a really nice figure. Kudos, Gary, keep ’em coming!
