An NMX Review - Wave 2 Nunchuk and Firefly


Recommended Posts

Well the webcam is back... Not working at 100% so I'll have to get a new one sooner or later, but at least I've got something to work with for the time being. Anywho... On with the reviews. For those who missed my Funskool Dreadnok set of reviews, shame on you. Now we move onto a couple of wave 2 2-packs that I ordered from The Store on 44. (GREAT service by the way... I was truly and pleasantly surprised.)


Wave 2 Nunchuk and Firefly...




You'll notice I've only pictured Firefly... This is because Nunchuk's foot, which featured Hasbro's 'new and improved' articulation, was -broken- right out of the package. Lucky me. And bite me Hasbro.


I did keep Nunchuk for parts, however, because the figure itself was actually quite well done, design-wise. I like his look, and his camo scheme is actually pretty believable and works well on the figure. So some of Nunchuk's parts will likely end up in a future custom of mine at some point. This is the only thing that keeps this -broken- figure from getting a zero.


Firefly, on the other hand, is just friggin' awesome. I'm still not crazy about his new look, but that's only because I have expectations of what my favorite GI Joe character is supposed to look like. But despite my biases, I have to admit this IS a cool figure, without a doubt. He definately looks the part of the terrorist sabateur and definately carries a menacing quality to his mold. Also, there are no problems at all with his added articulation... It's actually quite spiffy. I think Hasbro did very well here.


Overall... Nunchuk gets a 2 out of 10 due to the above mentioned annoyance, and Firefly gets an 8 out of 10 for not being quite perfect but very damned close.


Next: Scarlett and Zartan.
