    *shakes head* …tsk, tsk, tsk… sigh…

    Had this figure been releaesed I’d be all over it. Multiples even. The customizing potential is limitless. Not sure I’m sold on the swappable arm gimmick but I’d have to have one in hand to be sure.

    I find it really hard to believe they tooled these figures up and won’t make use of the tooling. Perhaps if the movie line does really well we’ll see these Resolute figures next spring.

    I agree MS.

    I have a feeling we will get all of the resolute figures eventually. I can’t imagine they would pay for the tooling and not use it.

    I’d say I can’t wait for this figure, but I guess I can. I want one without writing on it.

    I can’t believe you didn’t mention the nod to the original’s medallion with the ruby being the clasp to the coat top. I think that is a truly superb touch on Hasbro’s part.

    I agree with both of you, it seems unlikely that this figure is destined for the scrap bin, though Hasbro seemed rather certain when they said it would not appear in 2009. Time will tell, but I didn’t want to take that chance.

    I have the perfect head for mine…..I took the DVD Destro head (Glowing green eyes) and put it on this fine, fine piece of a toy. As I said in my review for Theterrordrone:

    First off let me say I love, Love and LOVE (!!!!!!) this Figure. Why Hasbro wont release him is beyond me??? Damn good update to a Favorite Character of mine.

    Now I fought long and hard on paying $35 (and wouldnt you know it he went down $10 the day after I bought him) for one fig, but when I read the QnA (No plans on releasing him or Roadblock) and with a few nudges by some fellow Drones I caved in. Very much glad I did.

    His skirt limits what you can do with him, but the sheer badassness of this figs far out weighs such limitations (To me at least). He just screams Cool, screams I will take your lunch money and there is not one damn thing you can do about it. He looks so tuff that I just gave him my money in my wallet and he never demanded it.

    He comes with a far better briefcase then his single (And 5 pack release) carded version. It has a freaking computer in it and a sweet gun…..can you get better than that? Hell no!!!!

    Now I do have some tiny complaints which really arent that much. The Auction said you get what you see in the pics, Which didnt include the “H” on the left arm nor the “PB” on the skirt, but you know what I can really deal with it.

    I did however have plans to modify the fig but now feel I dont wont to do such a thing…..seeing as how this is a “Hardcopy” I believe the word is. One thing I will be doing as putting the DVD Destro head (Because he has cool glowing green eyes) because it will match my mod I did to Reso Cobra Commander giving him the chrome head from the DVD CC.

    Again this Fig screams cool and is one if not the best Destro to date. Looks just like The resolute Destro Cartoon come to life (Well if little plastic men actually could breath) All in all Im glad I own this fig and Im still stumped on why Hasbro dropped the ball on this one. They better give us Resolute SE or I may just throw a rock with a mean little note attached in their window….dont make me Hasbro….
