Pretty cool...

You said it. This is for kids (though collectors certainly can appreciate it) and while it does reuse a lot of old stuff (in fact the whole set is repaints and reuse) it's still a decent set. I think Walmart overpriced it originally at $25+ but I think as a $20 set it's not bad. Obviously it's a steal at $5.

I like the strange deco on SE as well.

The Gate Chucks...

I will get you back for that, you bastard. Moving right along, it is absolutely wonderful for the Motion Revive Riders we recently obtained. Can't wait to see those up here, they're quite a marvel in 3 3/4" engineering.

"There are six swords, two sheaths, two Chinese swords, two staves, two decorative guandao, a bow and arrow, a pistol, an Uzi, a hand held set of claws, an assault rifle, some incense, candles, a green light thing, and two missile launchers!"

A person could have a fun night in vegas with this stuff!

Though you can only have so

Though you can only have so many Snake Eyes's and Storm Shadows, I really liked this set! Reviewed it myself over at Joebattlelines:

Had a great time setting up pics! Granted, in terms of a collector, this really is a kid's set. Regardless, I had a good time and really appreciated all the melee accessories.

The Storm Shadow looks cool

The Storm Shadow looks cool as hell. That "green light thing" is actually a nanomite-filled warhead.

That twisty tie thing is

That twisty tie thing is awful, but otherwise looks like a really fun set. I do think it's missing one accessory though... a giant "gong" to go in between the two columns!

Are you really supposed to

Are you really supposed to use the twisty ties once you have it out of the package? I've had Transformers and whatnot that had twistties going through them in the package,but you were clearly supposed to remove them.

Dave,I think they left it gongless so you can cut out your own out of foil. That way you can leave a head-shaped dent in the gong when you smash the other guy into it.
