Figure "fixes" using the new Joe 5 packs and my mini reviews

Cyber Bishop

Recommended Posts

I bought both 5 packs today.


When I started looking at them I thought about some 'swaps" to make some of the older figs better.

Some figs I will not comment on since they did not need any enhancement.


I took the Zartan head from the 5 pack and put it on the more recent figure (one with the swamp buggy) and FINALLY Zartan looks perfect (IMHO). The clear "red" chest plate on the 5 pack one is OK, I just prefer him with the black one. He has the correct face markings now and is complete for me.


The 5 pack Baroness is perfect and IMHO needs no correction.


The 5 pack Lady Jaye is perfect and IMHO needs no correction.


The 5 pack Flint is perfect and IMHO needs no correction (he actually works pretty good with his original head too).


Shipwreck... I honestly prefer the original 25th release. Granted his head is more "accurate" BUT he looks kind of "dumpy" to me and his forearms are too small now. I tried to head swap BUT the new head is too big for the 25's body. C'est La vie.


The 5 pack Snake Eyes is perfect and IMHO needs no correction.


Viper.. Absolutely FANTASTIC (IMHO).. no fixes needed.


Cobra Commander.. sigh.. I did take his cloak and staff to use them on the DVD (best of) CC and WOW he looks fantastic.. IMHO he is now the "complete" Cobra Commander.


Storm Shadow, I did not change anything with him.


General Hawk. Meh.


Again these are my Opinions and not fact.



Now to those that have this pack, is it me or does this feel like a different grade of plastic?
