Zero really is the only one i don't care about.. and I assume that it's Agent Zero David North? or is it the Five Lights Kenji Uedo (who i can't imagine would get a figure)

i can think of probably 50 simple repaints that would be better than either one though.
I thought that Zero would be the MLF member.

My assumption as well given the Stryfe connection. Easiest repaint imaginable. Excited to get him and kick off our MLF collection!

Yeah... it's definitely the Liefeld created MLF member

That thing is an even easier repaint than the The Spot (which still baffles they haven't thrown into the line yet)

It's almost certainly the Zero from Liefeld's Mutant Liberation Front

Seriously. We *have* to be getting Spot in the next year given his inclusion in Into the Spider-Verse 2. I really hope they go all out with a deluxe version with swappable limbs, wormholes, etc etc.

As for Pretty Boy, personally I'm hoping for more of a half-man, half-machine look moreso than a pretty face on a robot body. Something like this would make me very happy.

But of course the full-on cyborg look would not be inaccurate.

Either way I'll be happy to get him though!

Given the limited options available I'm surprised we all snagged different pics!

Using literally ANY pre existing male buck in their inventory:

Zero paint.

Zero face sculpt.

Zero accessories.

Zero cost to make.

Hey now.... that's not fair. It requires two... count 'em... TWO printed black ovals - that's paint.

And, while it requires no new sculpting and minimal paint tht ABS plastic isn't free .... this thing has to cost dozens of cents to produce at least.

Watch they will somehow screw it up and put him on a Pizza Spiderman body. I swear, if Zero isn't on the Vulcan body I'm going to send them a strongly worded social media response!

Must...resist...making...off-color...joke.

Especially since I also would like Forearm and Tempo. I can live without the other MLFers, but those 2 are a must.

ANY male buck, man. including pizza Spidey. You'd be stretched to find a more irrelevant mutant in the franchise. Who cares about Zero? Close your eyes, reach in the male buck bin, and pull one out. There you go! :)
