Rulz over at HissTank adds two more Battle Stations to his COBRA Surveillance Port and has posted some very nice pictorials with a few details that we may not have seen. This time around, he showcases the Outpost Defender w/ Roadblock and Tripwire as well as the Laser Artillary Weapon with General Hawk and Grand Slam.
Once again I feel like these miss the boat a bit. It’s great seeing the Resolute Roadblock, but those colors are pretty horrible. The mustard yellow and strange hybrid desert camouflage just doesn’t really work to me. Tripwire looks okay, but he looks a lot like Grand Slam, only with some tiger stripes slapped on. They seem pretty random, and he doesn’t come close to matching the actual Tiger Force version of the character, so I’m not entirely sure why they’re there.
I absolutely love the single pack General Hawk, so it’s cool to see him here with green camouflage legs, but did we really need yet another Grand Slam on the shelves at the same time as the Target exclusive version? The guy got two versions in twenty-five years, and now we’re working on his fourth in two years, and his second in a matter of weeks. What really stinks is none of them really looks that different from another…except for the fact that they have different heads. Odd.
The Battle Stations themselves look okay…I really like the sandbags and the overall look of the Outpost Defender, and the LAW is actually growing on me somewhat, but neither of them really screams “Buy Me!” at the $18.00 price tag. Check out the mirrored images below.
