All right its not secret that Firefly is one of my top favorite Cobra members and my Retaliation invaison team Firefly is as close to perfect as it gets. BUT he scares me when i do photo comics of him or even photo shoots outside because of all the removable stuff. I already lost the bomb that attaches to the rear part of his belt and I really dont want to loose the other one so im thinking I need another firefly and just keep that one on the shelf for looks. So what is the best Firefly figure other than that one? Oneeighteenphotos reminded me today of quality over quantity since i was complaining that i couldnt afford SDCC Zarana but i never realized that i buy so many cheap figures in bulk which equal to well over the price of zarana. so Instead of going with a cheap firefly replacement i want a good quality one.
here are the ones i thought of that may be a cool replacement because seriously its hard to top perfection.
Rise Of Cobra Toys R Us Exclusive Firefly: the most expensive one, pretty much resolute firefly but he comes with a shit load of gear
and has the vest from comic pack shockwave so he looks bad ass and i heard he's very good quality as apposed to his 25th anniversary counterparts.
25th anniversary Comic pack Firefly Vs Storm Shadow: comes with a very unique looking devils due inspired storm shadow but the firefly is really awesome looking. the same figure as shockwave whom i already plan to order but he comes with an intriguing sabotage kit that really blows my mind. i could leave that shit in the house and just grab the figure and one of his narley rifles.
Renegades Firefly: the cheapest but he seems to be fairly good quality from reviews ive seen of him. a unique look for the guy and I love the elaborate overcoat with the fire-retardant layers of material on his forearms. really looks like he could be making explosives
because his uniform looks like it was designed to protect him from fires and chemicals.
Retaliation Ultimate Firefly: my least favorite but i figured he would be a suitable replacement and c'mon hiss tank drone, that sells him.
Sure he has shock trooper arms, torso from ROC storm shadow and the legs from my firefly so he really isnt all that great looking because of the miss matched parts thrown together to half ass resemble his on screen look but I know he's solid because I own all
three figures he's made from and I can tell you from experiece, shock troopers, 30th cobra troopers, and the invaison trooper are
all excellent quality because of the very sturdy arms that allow for smooth articulation and various weapon poses. and the paris Pursuit
storm shadow is one of the sturdiest figures i own, retaliation storm shadow aint got shit on him, just really hard plastic on his torso.
so that firefly even though it looks terrible is excellent quality and very affordable because my toys r us has him as a peg warmer because no one wants him lol
so that being said what can replace my firefly? comic pack, renegades, ROC, or slapped together retaliation? or should I just go with
my cheap personality and grab a 25th anniversary beach head repaint with different web gear(seriously thats what he is, a grey
beach head with different gear, even has the same rifle as beach head, lazy ass hasbro lol)
