This has actually turned out to be a pretty cool triple pack. I didn't figure I would get lucky and find it quite this soon, but I suppose diligence pays off...or scalpers are waiting till Black Friday.
That said, Flaswhing is a character I am really looking forward to...If you were unaware the Earth Element is my favorite and that coupled with the story reference lasers shooting from her tail give me high expectations. The figure, while not my color scheme, looks great. Double Trouble is my favorite Magic Element character and one that I think is under rated. I used him box-stock to do what most deem "difficult" portions of SSA and he aced them. I am not a huge fan of the repose, but the fact he gets a Wow Pow Power makes up for it.
The real icing on the cake, and an unexpected surprise, is how well done Gill Grunt's repose looks. Prior to unboxing, I had no idea he was "blasting off" with the water tanks out back. The colors are vibrant, the harpoon looks killer, and the fact so much went in to the design just makes you proud to look at it knowing he is in your arsenal. That said, the other treat is that short of going online or buying another Starter Pack for SSA, there was no way to get a "spare" Gill Grunt (Series 1) to take down his other path. I can finally try Water Weaver and get the benefit of the Wow Pow to go with what is easily the most impressive repose I have seen to date. This triple pack definitely saved me a few bucks and stacks up very well!
