Well, we told you about the first series of these guys when they hit a few months back. Now for those of you who are chomping at the bit to get the 2nd series (November, folks), you might want to take a look at this series of “Redeployed” figures.
When McFarlane talks about Redeployed, they mean that they’ve taken the aforementioned first series, done some resculpts, repaints, and changed up some accessories. So you’ve got another round of the same soldiers: Army Ranger, Navy SEAL, Marine Corps Recon Sniper, Marine Corps Recon, Army Desert Infantry, and the Air Force Special Forces Command CCT.
However, another change-up is that if you already own the first series, these guys can create “squad-based” operations. In other words, they bring their buddies along to kick your ass. All except for the sniper…they traditionally work alone, I guess, and don’t play well with others.
Some might pooh-pooh this and say, well, it’s just double-dipping. Well, we might agree with you but McFarlane makes it clear from the get-go that these are for people who agree with us that “nothing exceeds like excess” and that if you couldn’t get enough of hardass figures, you’ll go and buy more. So these are for you. So you get the same attention to detail, the same incredible sculpts, and even more guns. I don’t see how anybody can lose on this deal.
