I love this but is he different enough to warrant buying the figure again? Also I want one on card, so I'll buy two more.

I think the sunbow eyebrows are horrible. But he is a solid black compared to the original.

I'd buy for $19, maybe head swap the original to this body and look at the stand as a bonus.

I love the Sunbow eyebrows but, I wasn't convinced it would match well with the other Classified figures. A head swap on the all black suit is a good idea. But I do have a "toon shelf" so one way or the other, eyebrows will probably end up there...if I find one.

I have not even seen Gung-Ho on the shelf yet. (or Destro).
