I wish these guys would do two or three molds at a time instead of a whole bunch of repaints of the same mold over and over.

Not to rain on this parade but
Anything made by Black Major is not canon. Period.
Not officially licensed by Hasbro, the guy is lucky he has not gotten a cease and desist.
I have always thought of his fare as amusing knockoffs... of knockoffs.
He has certainly gotten a lot of attention lately spitting out tons of customs.

Personal opinion is none of these creations should be allowed in the tourney.
It is no different than a character we created in an RP game or a character in a Kindle Worlds novel that has not been recognized by Hasbro.
Cartoon, Comic, officially licensed Hasbro/Club characters only.

Carry on!

To each their own, but Skinny makes a good point, for the purposes of continuity standard figures would be preferable.

Personally, I feel bad when I draft someone without the standard shape filecard.
Those always render funny for me, and are almost unreadable. And most of the time I'm reading on my phone, which makes trying to read individual filecards a chore.

I enjoy learning more about characters I don't have, since my filecard knowledge after 1988-89-90 is hazy.

Or I could just be getting old. Bifocals may be in my future. 8-)

As far as the figures, that Crimson IG looks good.

Check this out. I bought the Crimson IG, and the thumb broke as soon as i tried to put the weapon on it the first time. I mentioned it on the facebook page, and they messaged me and they are sending me a new replacement arm for it. How awesome is that.

That's awesome! Betcha will never put a large handle weapon in his hand again. Lol I'm looking at you straight arm zap. ;)

Anyone see these G.I. Gems? Looks like the club forgot to do the polishing and just shipped out some plain old turds for the end of the FSS 6 ^ha^

Good customer service to replace calcium deficient thumbs. :-)
Better if they don't break ever.

I remember some repaints either on the Collectors series around 2000 or the comic 3 packs. The hand were rubbery to allow holding ridiculous large handles weapons. I wonder what Hasbro used to get them to be more pliable.

At any rate, kudos for him taking on a big project and bringing life to a well loved troop building mold.
