Club Copperhead in HAND!!

A nice suprise was that instead of the Blowtorch head the proto figure seemed to have, they went with the DTC Salvo, who in my opinion looks a lot more thuggish and is very appropriate for the character.
He is a little tallish, but expected given the parts. Paint is clean, and colors spot on. The only nitpicks I can make are the carrying over the wrinkly elbows and the slightly small eye dots. I'd have liked to have seem a shoulder pad added to the other side (symmetry nut) but that would have just been dreaming. Overall, this is a great Franken-Joe and a superb addition to your collection!

However, the rest of the figure doesn't really strike me as being Cooperhead.
I always thought of Copperhead as being pretty much a swamp rat (not the same as the character swamp rat) and even closer to being a something of a Dreadnok himself. Practically wearing nothing but a "wife beater" t-shirt and some gloves. The pants design on the original were kinda funky, but he had some good swamp boots on and he was pretty muscular.
This MC version doesn't capture that....imo.
He's too Sci-Fi looking and doesn't look properly outfitted for his function.
Obviously, I had to throw a photoshop together, to demonstrate what I would of had in mind (and probably will still do for myself as a custom) for making a new Copperhead figure...
You wouldn't happen to have that removable helmet in a cast would ya?
