As I've been saying for quite some time now. Its the exact reason I'm passing on this figure. This omission just screams (no pun intended) of an obvious trick to get fans to buy the next few Siryns, as if somehow including the correct, accurate head on this one would keep them from buying the next ones. It smacks of disrespect to us, the customer. And yeah I know there are those here who don't like us criticizing Hasbro, and that we've "complained enough", need to "move on", etc. We should be happy with what we have. Don't criticize; you're bringing a bad vibe, etc.
It seems like what they're really saying is, we should have loyalty to them (hasbro). But I don't see customer loyalty when they pull this kind of thing. The 20th "anniversary" toybiz line up is an overpriced, confusing mess- roll out guys that are already done, but toss in features that don't match up, and faces that look nothing like what we know, contribute it to an artist who has nothing to do with the anniversary event, then slap a post card in there jack up the price (the Cap was the best of the bunch but still, the price is uncalled for). The shartimus reviewer was asking about Banshee and felt the need to stress for a screaming head, if he's made. How sad is that?? I wanted to get Dormammu, Siryn, Dr Strange, Madame Hydra... but I'm not spending money on figures that are being done in such a half manner.
Too bad the figure doesnt have the lighter green that the packaging does... or the screaming head. The lighter costume looks sharper, the non screaming head seems like an obvious omission just so Hasbro can re-release it later. Im telling you Hasbro these practices wont continue to fly at the price point you are asking us to pay for inaccurate figures,
Actually, we're meant to cut one of the screaming face pictures off the side panels of the box, and tape that over the head. Yeah, that's it.
