    Grid-Iron looks super bad ass. I just did a custom using a 50th Duke and original Grid-Iron accessories with a Marauder head. Ha.

    With that many characters that fans were begging for, I'd say the expectations are going to be high, which is a good thing.

    Grid-Iron is looking cool. And if he is one of the "weakest" as how the Club is showing the releases, this is going to be a very strong offering.

    I never had the original Grid-Iron until a few months ago but if I would have had him as a youngster he would have been in all of the battles. A football player on the Joes? Super Duper!

    I've been wanting a modern Blizzard FOREVER. Not really too excited about the others though. May just wait and overpay slightly for the one fig.
