Let me be another to echo my happiness and excitement with this set. Just got it yesterday from Luke, and I love them. Perhaps the character I care for the least in this set--Scarlett, is my favorite Minimate of the bunch. Executed so well. Just a great distillation of her, from the details on the suit to the ponytail to the crossbow. But Storm Shadow is a close second. The sword holster works really well and the little design details make him stand out. He's only missing his nunchaku!
If and when we get toon-accurate versions, I'll replace this Cobra Commander, but this one is quite serviceable when you remove the cape. I didn't notice before that the stripe is sculpted onto his helmet, though it isn't colored here.
My one slight disappointment with the set may be Snake Eyes. I think I personally would have preferred a simple tampo for his visor. As it is, the head seems really bulky. And I appreciate the effort DST went to to give him all his straps, etc., but it makes him a bit busy and hard to pose. The knife bends when you put it in his sheath. Having said that, I still like him a lot, and am very happy with this purchase. I might dig around in my collection to see if there is something approximating his '85 backpack that I could modify for his use. And he's missing the uzi, so I'll have to look for a replacement on that front, as well.
My first non-custom Minimate purchase in probably 2 or 3 years! We need MORE!!!
