My original 1978 vintage Hammerhead figure, I bought recently.  Compared to my memory of the figure from childhood, and all photos I've seen,  his skin (which I thought was quite a dark brown)and his vest (which I thought was light blue) both seem kinda greenish.  Is it just ageing? or is my memory or the photos just lit differently? Does anyone else have similar colouring?

Hammerhead is such a great figure for weird expressions.

I like how his carded figure is looking directly at his picture and either of them could be thinking: "Wtff you looking aht man!"  

Very Happy

:cool laugh:  Never even really noticed that Paul, he's got the full squinty suspicious eyes going on  Suspect 
 
PBP certainly had the best idea with the packaging, not sure if the bubble is just upside down or totally unique, either way, it's the best one  Smile

Hands down as well, Hammerhead has the best hand ever produced for holding a gun!!!
