    You are a bold and courageous person, afraid of nothing. High on a hill top near your home, there stands a dilapidated old mansion. Some say the place is haunted, but you don't believe in such myths. One dark and stormy night, a light appears in the topmost window in the tower of the old house. You decide to investigate... and you never return...

    V1 Snake Eyes has been reissued a lot over the years but this is the first time it's been recreated with the correct pelvis. So many of the original RAH figure molds were damaged or destroyed we've never gotten accurate reissues before. I'm impressed they went to the effort to recreate the figures with all the previously missing parts.

    Still cheaper than MOC originals...a tiny fraction in fact.

    I will own ALL of these. No question.

    It's because of the premium packaging for the 2 pack. I doubt single card releases will be as expensive.

    Totally! Probably way cheaper than the comic pack reissues with the wrong parts too. I am SO looking forward to these.

    Hasbro has finally taken notice of the popularity of all the third party O-ring figure companies. Time to reclaim the market!

    It's nice they are making them that way, it's an exciting time.

    I really liked and collected the heck out of the 25th style figures but I am absolutely giddy the O-Ring figures are coming back. I am happy we are getting true 3 3/4 inch RAH figures unlike the 25th era 4 inch figures.

    The Walmart retro line is of course now over but it had some really nice figures in its short run. The best modern Scarlett by far as well as improved repaints of hard to get figures like 50th Destro. I also never pass up a chance to grab a HISS tank. There were some obvious stinkers in the line like screaming Duke. I really hate that head sculpt and it should never ever, ever, EVER be reissued again. The biggest disappointment for me of the 25th style era is we never got a good update of V1 Duke. It was either tiny head or screaming head. Duke deserved better.
