As folks who have been reading my dio-story know, I’m a Vypra fan for sure, so I was looking forward to the FSS update quite a bit. Vypra I thought was ripe for some interesting twists, just because she’s not a really familiar character and could certainly be well served by some intriguing updates.
As it turns out, the final result is a repaint of Jinx, which makes sense because that’s what the original was, but I won’t lie, I was hoping things might get changed up a bit, since there weren’t many folks (besides me, that is) who were firmly attached to the character.
I do love her accessory pack out, though. Check out GIJoeClub.com or the mirrored image below.
EDIT – As has been pointed out by a few helpful commentors below… Vypra does indeed have Renegades Scarlett legs, which believe it or not, goes a certain distance towards redeeming the figure for me. I would still have loved a slightly more elaborate paint scheme, and perhaps an unmasked head or something… something like we got with FSS 1.0 Jinx. But still, I do like the actual boots and military legs. That’s a nice touch.
it’s not just a Jinx repaint, her legs are off Renegades Scarlett so at lease she has combat boots
I like the use of the Scarlett legs here. Helps make her stand out a bit but I’m disappointed in the paint deco. I miss the camo the original figures had. They don’t have to use the same pattern, but anything at all would help this figure. I bet the club’s “urban rain” camo pattern would have looked really great on her.
