Just got him in the mail today, I really like the head sculpt and he looks 100% better with his gear on. The removable beret was a nice touch also.

Is the beret the same as Falcon's from the Slaughter Marauder set?
and shouldn't the title say "delayed" instead of canceled? :mrgreen:

they weren't even trying on his likeness to DJ Catrona... its not as far off as Stone's non-existent likeness to Fraser, but still, it's bad.

still, it's nice the beret is removable. all it needs now is a totally different body from the neck down.

I believe we were told that a majority of the figure likenesses wouldn't be exact...That because off schedules when Toy production had to start, and when Casting was fully locked, Not Every toy would have an exact-digital scanned likeness.

I think that's why you see the Later Wave 2 "Rockblock" with a better looking head sculpt.

Dont have the Marauder set so I am not sure.

Probably should of used postponed, delayed, in process, overdue, tardy or hindered instead of canceled.

yeah, I kind of figured that was the reason but really it's still kind of unfortunate...
