"Army Builder" 5-packs found


Recommended Posts

I went to TRU, just to see what was new, and found those 2 5-packs for $20. $4 a figure isn't bad....if the figures don't suck.


I didn't bother with the Cobra one since it is the same guys we have seen over and over (Viper, Elite-Viper, Duke and 2 M.A.R.S. guys. I'm not even sure which is which there).


I think the Joe one is the one anyone is really interested in as it is as it gives us 4 brand new characters (for 25th bodies anyway).




Sorry that the pictures suck. I didn't realize. I was doing it in the store and it was crowded and I wanted to be quick about it.


But anyways, we have Dial-Tone, Law & Order, Zartan, Footloose and Repeater. Of course we pretty much KNEW that, but I didn't know about the female Dial-Tone.


So what are the pros and cons?



$4 a figure is pretty good.


25th versions of Dial-Tone, Repeater, Footloose and Law. The potential for getting more accurate versions of those characters, just to maximize the use of the copywrite (lol I can dream, can't I?)



As I commented in Clam's thread about the movie, when we first started discussing the movie, I didn't think it would be such a bad thing if they had "uniform" uniforms. But it really hit home with these guys that that idea was pretty stupid. If I didn't know who the characters were before hand, I would have had NO idea who any of them were. As it stands, I didn't know the female figure was Dial-Tone till I read the back.


Desert Camo. Eesh. what's the deal? I mean Law has always been more of an "urban" style character, for example. Its just over done, not to mention everyone else in the line is in blue, so why not these guys?


These may actually BE the "only" versions we get of these character. So is it better to get a version of a character that sucks completely or not get the character at all?

I thought about this set, but I left them both behind. I went in looking for Bench Press and the Snow Serpent, which my local store STILL doesn't have. It's BS, man.


I can find both of them in quantity. If I didn't already have a bunch of Snow Serpents from 25th (and the arctic set), I mighta gotten some.

I pretty much agree with you. I saw this set earlier this evening, and I actually like the Dialtone figure, but I don't know that I want the whole set just for her.


Buy a Helix, paint her hair brown and put it on a Cover Girl body. It is really simple but Hasbro makes it harder than it should by putting her in a 5 pack when the regular line could use more females in it.
