When they do Falcon's classic suit, I hope they have the mask covering the neck. Why I don't know, but I always thought this looked cooler than having it stop just under the throat. The toybiz classic Falcon didn't do it and it was fine. There's no "right" or "wrong" way to do it; I've seen different artists do it different ways. Sometimes the same artist drew it differently in the same comic, on the same page. But I always like this version.
Really like the flight poses you can get this guy in, seems older figures dont look as dynamic while attempting flight form.
We all know a classic version is on the way and we also know its Hasbros M.O. to give us more modern versions first before hitting the classics
my preferred look is the classic suit, but this one will do nicely with the Johns era of Avengers
The Falcon IS a bigger guy and its odd they didn't pick a different mold, or better yet make a bigger one that incorporates the butterfly joints.....maybe that will be on the classic version. One thing I do like about this version is that in the animated series, he didnt wear gloves but on the 3.5" sky attack figure he did. I just prefer him with the gloves. Very good that he can look up all the way, for true flight poses, on this upcoming figure!
While I'm elated to FINALLY get a Falcon, I can't help but feel this thing shoulda been done on the Spider UK buck. Sam is a legit bigger guy at 6'2, 240 lbs, round about the same size as Cap. I know they thought it better to make use of the butterfly joints, but we're they really all that necessary? I'm pretty sure he mostly holds his arms out beside him in the same plane as his body to make use of his flight capabilities. And what's up with those teeny tiny legs? Those aren't the standard Sunfire buck legs. I do like the new boots, but im pretty sure dudes don't have a thigh gap like that. Looks like he been hittin' the gym with "Never Heard O' Leg Day" Herc.
All in all though, it's Falcon and it looks good and he's got many looks and there's bound to be a few more in the future, so there's plenty of time to shake out the little problems they had with this one. I'll take it.
I guess this is the 2nd figure in this wave after kang, i would love to have
I like the costume, sad he doesn't come with Redwing, looks like I will have to dig out my Toy Biz Redwing

Agree that those wings don't really look the best for the Falcon. I do like the translucence though. Maybe by the time they do the classic outfit, they'll have another version.
I am just so happy to finally be getting a Comic Falcon, and no not Sam Wilson as Cap, but finally a new Falcon, it's so over due it's stupid, as much as I wished it was an older costume, I still really dig this, just because well it's so needed. I only have 2 issues and that's no Red Wing, and 2nd is the re-use of the Vulture Wings, I know it works with those wings but I hate how frigidity those wings are to keep in and this bothers me, other then that well it's finally a comic Falcon for the new ages.
I do like this Falcon figure but I will hold out, as I wanna wait for classic Falcon as well. WouldNot mind if he came in a 2pack with 80th Cap repaint neither.
Glad to see that Falcon is the second figure after Shang-chi to receive new more appropriate shoulders on sunfire mold, as well as pinless joints on arms, hopefully they can remold Falcon's new arms into regular peg slots-less arms, it could be really cost effective measure.
