As some have said, this johnny is just ok. The look fits and works for what they were going for it but also awkward and weird. Hes not that interesting compared to the others as well. I kind of missed out on the powered up johnny as I was hoping hed go down in price as I wasnt in that big of a rush to get him but may still just pick this up to get skrull.

I'm glad they finally got around to making a powered down Torch, and I have ZERO complaints . . . BUT . . .
That face is kinda weird. It's not bad, just . . . odd. For some reason, it reminds me of those old Gerry Anderson supermarionation shows like Thunderbirds or Captain Scarlet.
Agreed. From the Walgreens team theface sculpts are so good they remind you of someone... like is Sue Taylor Swift? Reed kinda looks like some actor..kinda. There was hints of someone famous, just awesome sculpts.
This modern wave takes those hints of familiarity and covers them with cartoonish lack of the more refined detail. They almost dont even look like their previous Walgreens versions. They look prett6 good, just not as refined. Johnny especially looks generic.
Would have been a fun wink if they made Johnny kinda look like Chris Evans.
This figure I find the least interesting in this wave personally, I know alot of people are going to be happy to get a powered down Johnny but, I never cared for any look other then his Flame On look, I personally don't like this head sculpt either as Mako said above me it reminds me of some Thunderbird Puppet.
I like the head sculpt and may pick this up to use as a powered down Johnny since I never picked up a 2nd classic reed (and hes a bit slim for Johnny anyhow).Not really a costume I dig too much but at least the blue & black seem like they match the colors on the classic costumes so thats good. And more flame effects are always cool to have
