Yes, I was able to pop a head off, so for customizers that might be good, but be careful, Karai didn’t seem to do as well, her head seemed softer and more hollow. An example of a female, maybe a stand in for a Jinx or Ronin for Joe fans?

Run down of some of the news:
Licenses, info, and news in General for the Loyal Subject:
Prices on most lines about 13 $ (it’s 10 for barely articulated vinyl, so you are simply paying for the extra articulation (and to be fair, quality and variety in sculpts and more), in my book, well worth it.
New Licenses acquired: MOTU, Street Fighter, How to train your Dragon, Attack on Titan, and a new original property. CLICK HERE for how to Train your Dragon Images.
Playsets and vehicles are in the works for some properties including G.I.Joe and Master of the Universe (He-man!)
The Joe news:

So we know the following will be in Wave 2: Dusty, Blowtorch, Major Bludd, Beachead, Cobra Trooper, Crimson Guard, firefly, Roadblock, Goggled Se copperhead and a Female.
Sightline, the figure Hasbro named after the recently deceased Gary Goggles Head was discussed. For the photoshop mock ups, and more about how this prolific member of the fandom had such an impact on the hobby that Hasbro felt it appropriate to name a figure after him go HERE to another article of ours with more info about him.
