The Good:
An excellent dark gray camo scheme reminiscent of Firefly v1.
Good colors, flexible Viper Pit Viper like lower arms that can hold his weapon without fear of a thumb snap. Legs and waist are very good and did not require dremel work like the Viper Pit Vipers.
A rifle, a backpack that stays put, and a removable helmet, with a pretty good blonde hair masked trooper face.

The Bad: Loose shoulders. Out of the package, he could not hold his arms up. I used the plumber's tape method to secure the shoulders. So far that is working, and he is up and working.

The Ugly: His left elbow looks like it will be sliding off the rivet. I took a few pictures and it looked like space was developing along the rivet. The elbow didn't crack, it just looks like it will come apart soon. PLEASE let me know if any of you have encountered weirdly loose elbow rivets on an otherwise solid figure, if you have suggested fixes. I'll try fixes if you have deployed such in the past. It might be a result of using the more flexible plastic on the lower arms so he could flex enough to hold his rifle.


I 've ran across the loose lower arm rivet meny times, what I do to fix this is a pain, and I just wish I could find the right rivet gun and fix them better. what you need to do is flatten the rivet by any means necessary. I use a small nail and a vice grip and a hammer a few good smaks will solve the problem normally. I still gota tape up my new guys arms and do some rivet bashing to fix all mine then put them in my display. Yea the ghost mortal (se with sliver and white) is sold out! But trust me mine is my new favorite se.

So glad you got one so we could get some pics. Thanks for the tip on the rivet. I have a nail set for tapping in trim nails flush on baseboard pieces. That should work. Just hope not to shatter the poor fella.

The tape stuff was no biggie at all. I might need to put more in or retape if I use him more.

Do some customizers do the reverse? Tap the bottom of the rivet on the front side of the elbow and push it out to swap out lower arms?

Just flatten the rivet more to tighten the arm. To remove the lower arm completely the shoulder rivet needs to come out or be very loose to pull it out the arms. actually the arms are 5 parts 2 shoulder haves,a arm Mont, swivel, and lower arm. You can remove the lower rivet in the swivel and swap that way too just be careful not to damage him. Rivets are a pain just in most my experience.

Blackmajor is posting Snow Serpent mock ups on IG.

I will try and limit myself to a camo one and maybe one of the Soviet logo ones. So much good stuff.
If he starts making EELS...oh, boy.

Im still waiting on my RedLaser set. I added 3 extra figures and paid for those back on December 24th. With it coming from Canada i would think at least 10 shipping days, so hopefully any day now.
