Black Sheep Toy Store has been specializing in fully painted pre-production samples, and even carded items, but they’re branching out a bit into the unpainted pre-production arena. Most of the items they’ve just listed have been seen before, but this Reactive Armor Ripcord is new. I mean, we all knew it was coming (just like it’s obvious that a Duke in Accelerator Suit will be showing up sooner rather than later), but it’s still neat to see. I actually really enjoy how Hasbro can take some very similar looks and change them up a bit. Even unpainted, you can see some of the structural and design changes that separate this figure at least somewhat from the many other armored figures that have already been seen. A pretty nice looking toy, all told. Check out the auction here and see the image below.
