    This is exactly what I've been thinking about all 3 of those figures. I'd be desperate for them if they had original heads, but i'm so lukewarm because of the reuse of the heads. I get they were like that in the art and intended to come out that way but that small change would make all the difference to me! The claw would look cool in that yellow too!

    <----(Copied & pasted from above quote!)

    Good Deal VAL! I know I'd like the claw better with the YELLOW stripe going down it, ...or *PREFERABLY for the sake of *Play Value (which is Totally important to me & why I Hate the painted Blackstic on Rattlor, Spikor, ect.), ...I'd be down for a whole [COLOR="#ff9900"]Yellow [/COLOR]CLAW(& +Add some shading if you can!) .

    ....either way, I'm excited to +ADD the x2 SNAKE MEN to the lacking Ranks! ...& I understand that New Tooling was implemented in the Mini-Comic pack, ...but know what would be *Cool VAL, (in a Future PC offering!)

    *SNAKE MEN heads for HOR-ROAR -&- Lord Gr'ASP, ...take existing Snake Men Warrior Heads, PAINT them to match the 2017 PC Exclusives, & +ADD them somehow to next years exclusives as a BONUS for the Customers who already purchased 2017 PC exclusives, & adds an incentive to buy Next Years PC exclusives (here's to hoping you con't. next year as well!), even if the x2 Snake Men Heads are hidden in the package if they don't fit the theme! Just something to think about & ponder. Just a whim wish of mine I'd gather, & rather infeasible I'm sure! Darn Logistics! lololol!

    ************************************************** ************************************************** ************************************************** ************************************************** ********
    +1 Solid YellowCLAW!!!!!!

    +1 Green Hood
    (LL Skeletor's Hood looks good on that custom!...but the Yellow Claw is a priority to me.)

    I do prefer the claw coloured, but I'm firmly in the "I'll buy this awesome pack anyway" camp

    I personnaly not a big fan of the hood, he looks like more badass without.
    But at least a yellow stripe on the claw would make it way more nice

    so, I understand the sentiment, and this line of thinking - but it's basically self defeating. The only way these obscure concept characters were going to get made at all was because of Val's passion for the line and the request to do them as Power Con exclusives. Otherwise these figures would be so far down Super 7's to-do list they'd never happen.

    And the only way these get done as exclusives is with the parts re-use. The 4-Horsemen have explained multiple times, as has Scott, that all new heads are some of the most expensive things to include - they require unique molds and more paint hits per capita than any other piece. That means expecting all new head sculpts on exclusives like this is simply unrealistic. Couple that with the fact that the original concept artwork reuses the heads already, making these versions source accurate as well, and there was no way these were ever getting made with unique heads.

    I'm very satisfied with how these turned out - and it means I don't have to customize my own and guess at the color choices.

    Baring that stuff in mind, as they are it does make sense to have these as an exclusive like this.

    I just have one of those minds that only registers them as purple Whiplash, etc.. a different head would have done that for me, but I understand it's an unlikely and costly option with it being an exclusive like this.

    I was rather "meh" about this character until his bio was revealed! Now I see him as on par with King Hiss and Lady Slither!

    Yeah, I think he'll work nicely as one of Lady Slither's minions.
    I have finally returned from Despondos.

    This is the fellow I really wanted. I may have to hunt him up on the over-priced secondary market at some point.

    Love this guy! I repainted a LL Skeletor hood for mine. I feel like it adds to the character design.

    Apple Barrel "Marsh green" from Wal-mart. I did a bit of a darker wash between layers.

    I used a hair dryer to heat the hood and kind of shaped it over the head, then cooled it with some water.

    Also they need to add some colour to his claw, as he looks a bit too bland right now. The claw wasn't black on the cardback art either.

    Don't know if anyone's pointed this out before, but that original drawing has a serious "Creation of Adam" vibe about it...






    Anyway.... I ordered the Power-Con sets through BBTS. Anybody know when Big Bad are expecting to receive them?
