Gallows (2006)

Gallows was released as a part of the Steel Brigade vs. Plague Troopers pack. Aside from the mini-gun, he bears little resemblance to his comic counterpart, a SAW Viper.

The Joe vs. Cobra Snake Eyes body somehow works well as a new character in this case, due in part to the mold’s lack of overt ninja styling. The new head sculpt is nicely detailed, although again it doesn’t look much like a SAW Viper helmet.

The mini-gun, a borrow from Spy Troops Roadblock, is still a great weapon, although the figure has a bit of difficulty holding it convincingly.

In the end, the Plague Troopers set was a noble attempt at some then-current characters, but was a bit disappointing in execution.
