Will make final judgment once my figure arrives but from pics, this version of Johnny is my least favorite of the Retro team. Can’t quite place why. Maybe the extra wide white around the shoulders that isn’t quite that broad on Reed and Sue’s suits. Nitpick for sure but  as I said, something about this guy hits my eyes wrong.

however, instantly loved the flame on version that I thought I wouldn’t like as much because of the translucent mold. Any one think we WONT get a matte red with black lines down the road that makes me buy a 4th version of Torch?

actually bought a 2nd flamed Torch to convert into Jim Hammond but I thought I had more yellow flame effects than I do. Any ideas on how to differentiate this Torch from a Hammond version? Besides the obvious body types I mean?

Man, I really think there would be less interest in this translucent version if it released AFTER one that was matte with a more classic comic paint scheme and I’m *pretty* sure they know that. Ergo we got this jolly rancher first.

Maybe it looks better in person, I dunno, so I hope to come across him in a store some time to really take a look. But seriously… I find it hard to believe this would beat an opaque version.

I initially passed on this, but now wonder if I should get it, replace the head with Mr. Fantastic. Don't care for how short Reed is compared to Johnny and Sue. At least if he's on this body he'll be equal height to the Torch. 

I like that idea; might do this too. 👍

Jeez is Reed that much smaller? I’ll have to do some research and decide if your idea is something I want to do as well

Put him next to both the Invisible Woman and the Torch and its obvious. Including the first walgreens roll-out, they've made the Torch figure taller and this just isn't correct. Mr.Fantastic has always been taller.

In fact, I'd go as far as to say the Legends team has really just phoned it in with the entire team, except for the Thing (and trust me, there are those who feel he's too tall as well).
