    I was sent 2 Miss Elizabeth figures instead of a Miss Elizabeth and Strobo like I ordered. I sent back the second Miss Elizabeth and was told the whole "might not get a replacement..." but I got an email yesterday saying my Strobo has been shipped, and I got tracking number this morning. I hope you have the same luck I did.

    That's great to hear. Hopefully they haven't exhausted their "CS stock". I only got him sent off a couple of days ago.

    Okay, someone explain to me why DR cannot do a simple thing like check their stock and tell you if they have a replacement? And why they cannot reserve that replacement for you? They do know there are these new fangled thinking machines known as computers, right?

    Got a first weapons pack (ultimate battleground) thought I would try the Man-at-arms repaint sword and gun and he actually looks pretty decent with those in hands since it looks to be the same blue highlights in the weapons used in his paint application .

    Great idea. I missed out on Strobo myself, but has anyone tried Stinkor's gun? It may work if the blue matches up.

    A lot of accessories match Strobo, but IMO no weapons really go with him. With his brightly colored cape, under-roos, and chest mirror, it seems he'd just fly around and uni-beam fools like those other guys do. And they surely never use guns or swords. Lol.

    Strobo abilities:
    -flight with speeds up to mach 4.
    -absorbs & redirects light and many other forms of energy. Can create simple force blasts and fields and sometimes more complex objects.
    -invisibility
    -intangability
    -can increase his weight up to 20 tons (with strength to match).
    -teleportation (even between dimensional planes. Much like Zodak.)

    It's just one of those weird things where every other figure pretty much has something in their hands. Stratos at least has the wings on his arms which kind of make up for it. Other examples that don't look horrible with is Draego-mans unflamed sword and the rifle that came in the weapons pack. I personally didn't want to give him a gun because I figured his disco ball chest took care of range. I gave him the short sword from the weapons pack, and it does look better with the gun than without. But I feel this has more to do with the size of the weapons. I still would like to see him with Laserlots mace and shield, because thematically I like the idea. I just don't have a Laserlot and don't want to spend money on something if it won't work.

    Conceptually I think he would go well with Laserlot and him being buds, I just find Laserlots final design to be a bit bland I much prefere some of the fan redoes of him that still use the basis of the figure.

    I know I'm really late to this party but I finally had a chance to open up Strobo and pose him with his gun from the new Weapons Pack!



    I also took the time to repaint the gun so that it matched the prototype colors...It was only a bit of grey, black, and silver but it makes a big difference!



    I'm glad that they were able to release the gun through the Weapons Pack because Strobo looks cool with it!

    Yes TOD Sorceress was supposed to be in last year's December sale, but Matty put her in Black Friday / Cyber Monday sales - including CS stock - they sold to the walls.

    If there is a sale date, always check the site, Matty "changes" their mind quite often!

    I've had him for a month or two now but I finally got around to reviewing Strobo. Need another look at him to decide whether or not you're going to try to score him next weekend? Check out my Strobo review right here!

    I really, really like this guy. He's definitely closer to the top of my list this year than to the bottom of the list.

    I have Strobo! He's goofy as heck, but I like 'em! I'm not gona lie though: a large part of my enjoyment is from the final picture of him frowning in that one comic he was in. I love the idea that he was integral to the destruction of that meteor and they all just thank He-Man and Strobo is in the background visibly irritated. Good times!

    Anyway, he's in perfect condition and all that (including the Zodak head). I'm impressed with how reflective his chest mirror is, too! Maybe not mirror quality, but certainly enough to continuously reflect the ceiling lights and blind me. One way or another I'm glad to have 'em!

    Opened my Strobo today..he's fun. Realized he had a weapon come with the newest weapons pack so went to my spare box to pull it out. No where to be found. Seems my weapons pack instead came with another larger red rifle (not sure who it belongs to) that I had already given to Mantenna. Not the end of the world but really odd...

    UPDATE: Did a little research and found that the gun was actually the Ditzstroyer gun I wasn't using, so I was shorted the Strobo gun altogether. Thanks Matty....awesome work
