    Strobo Arrival Thread

    Always wanted Strobo in this line to the point where I was going to customize one. He's even better in person. The colors really pop and make him a really fun looking superhero toy. I gave him Man-E-Face's shiny red gun. I think it works really well as a place holder.

    Zodak head is pretty nice.

    Great pics man! Hopefully mine come soon.

    SCB...Question, can you swap the new Batman Dark Knight Returns figure's head with MOTU figures' heads?

    Very cool pics, thanks for sharing them! I'm jealous of those who were able to get him but also happy for them. EA this month wasn't such a good perk but it was a sweet one for those who got lucky. The way I see it, that's an improvement over the norm for EA.

    For now, I will enjoy the cool pics of Strobo posted here and it will only make Power Con that much more exciting to attend this year!

    Zodak looks awesome with the alternate head, too!

    The shiny red gun is a good weapon for him.

    It's a shame that his unique gun got cut. Hopefully we'll get it in the next weapons pak.

    Oh, yeah, I still want that gun! I'm really hoping it ends up in a weapon pak. I bet it will. It'll make a cool gun for any Cosmic Enforcer, whether someone gets Strobo or not.

    I like the hand shake actually reflected in his chest. All this photos are helping while I wait for my Strobo, King He-man and Fang Man to arrive.
    I just published my very first ebook: Malediction! A short story of monsters and magic!
    Buy it now on Amazon or Barnes and Noble!

    Print version, also available!

    SCB, on some shots, the mirror in his chest looks wrinkled. Does it seem very durable? I have seen small round mirrors at the craft store before and have been thinking about replacing the one he comes with with an actual mirror.

    Well it's not wrinkled. The sticker is placed pretty perfectly. The reflection isn't that of a real mirror, so you'll get wrinkled reflections in some angles if that makes any sense.

    I imagine it is durable, but only time will tell. I don't touch the mirror sticker much.

    WOW great pictures! I was thinking to use that rifle too! Looks great.

    Anyone knows the story behind the meteor? It is from the comic right?

    Jealous!!!
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    Damn that was some fast shipping. Guessing you went for the DHL option.
    I'll be getting mine probably in 3-4 weeks time. They did however ship it real fast, like the next day after the sale had been.
