I can't believe they did Big Lob, out of the many decent characters they could have chosen from they chose him. :roll:

the Big Lob figure stuns m 'cause I always thought he was just the prototype of Hardball, thus technically Hardball was Big Lob with a new codename.

Ok, then we already have Kwinn, Dr Venom, Scar-Face, General Flagg Sr, Sparks, Hard Master, Clay Moore, Big Lob, Fred VII, Guillotine, Gallows, Grim Skull, and do the female :ctrooper: s coun as those appearing in "the siren's spell"?

Now we need Firewall, Billy, Soft Master (using the Honda body), General Woolingsworth, :afstalker: 's family, Dela Eden, the remaining Plague members and... did I forget somebody? I'm guessing yes ;-)

Big Lob was a basketball player wasn't he? Whereas Hardball looks dressed as a baseball player at least hardball is baseball terminology DA. Tri-Gate Creations are doing Dela Eden.

have to say I know nothing about the origin of the character, but I like the way that he is clearly a one off character, rather than an army builder. Makes sense for the special figure to be a special character. And even though I dont collect Joes, he is very welcome in my collection. I can't promise he wont get roped into some Stormie realted tomfoolery eventually however....

well, if anyone doesn't want their Big Lob figure, I'd be prepared to give him a home. for a price, if need be.

He would make a good Harlem Globetrotter custom figure but to me he was one of the things that ruined the movie for me some of the script managed to do that to.

Big Lob was one of my favourite parts of the movie! i love the bit with him and Tunnel Rat on the assault course and his running commentary, particularly his 'and the crowd go bananas!' at the end and Beach Head's 'the crowd ain't the only thing that's bananas!'

I liked more the Law and Order part, specially the car driving comment
