Scud: The Disposable Assassin

I've yet to read Scud, but

I've yet to read Scud, but the design has always interested me... I might have to pick this up AND grab the comics a the same time. Looks like a perfect figure that both captures the design and makes a great plaything.

It's worth a read

It's definitely a weird comic, but it's a lot of fun.

You can get the entire series for $20 on Amazon ($30 at normal retail):

this is awesome, i was

this is awesome, i was crossing my fingers hoping to hear good things about this toy. one thing tho, are the photos a good representation of what he looks like in-hand as far as colors go? the red spray is kind of a turn off, i don't get what they were going for there. is it misted blood? shading?

The photos are pretty close

The photos are pretty close to the actual toy, maybe slightly more saturated. I don't find the shading distracting. I imagine they added it to give a more modeled appearance to an otherwise plainish finish.

Aw, that is cool! I know

Aw, that is cool! I know nothing about the character, but I'm a big robot fan. Especially robots in an exagerated style, like that.

Unfortunately the shading

Unfortunately the shading ruined him for me too. SCUD is yellow, I don't get the orange stuff. Just a tad would be fine but certain figures it looks like overkill. I never have picked him up because of the shading I've seen which seems to range from minimal to full blown OJ attack. I do have the SOL which is the same figure (slightly different head sculpt) done in black and I quite like it. I reviewed it myself a while back. This was definitely the star of Shocker's first line of Indie Spotlight toys though.
