I love the head sculpt, and it reminds me a lot of Solid Snake from the Metal Gear games too. Now that we know Hasbro is prone to rerun old figures with improved paint, I am hesitant to recommend this - it's very good, but you can see so many parts where a little paint would do wonders to improve it. If in the far future there's never an improved paint job, I'd say buy this figure and love it - because it really is great. I'm just nervous that they'll make a better one later, in some future Archive wave, because you can see the spots for improvement. Fans of the cartoons or the video games will probably really enjoy this, just because it feels so much like some of the more interesting offshoots in the once and possibly future Expanded Universe. And it's interesting to look at. And it's really well-designed. If you see it for retail price, you're going to like it. And if you add some silver into the scuffs, you're going to like it more.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Entertainment Earth.
