POGO PG226, PG230, PG231: Jesse Quick, Punisher, and Red Iron Fist Minifigs Review

Initially previewed here!

The accessories. POGO, I'm so sick of getting snipers. I think even just getting those plain old TLG pistols is better..

Printing is great on these guys. Minus Punisher's scratch mouth. The other issue would be how the white skull on Punisher doesn't seem so solid; it's probably because it's the color white on a black torso. It's only noticeable when you look closer though. Jesse Quick's hair has some issues, but not too much of a big deal; check pictures below. Other than those, these three are superb, printing and plastic quality wise.

Side views.

There's the issue on Jesse Quick's hair. On the right side of the picture, you can see a small plastic nub. Might be a quality control issue, but chances are other minifigs will have that issue as well because it seems like that nub came from the process in making this minifig. Perhaps an x-acto knife, sandpaper, or a nail cutter can fix this for others.

Nice alternate faces too for Jesse and Punisher!

My Punisher's face has a scratch on his mouth, just thinking of it as battle-scarred face. He comes with an alternate face too anyway, and the cocky face is good for me because now I have a different Punisher hehe. You can also see how the arms aren't dual molded. They're painted quite nicely, except when it gets nearer the armpit, as you can see in the picture.

TL;DR - POGO improved, and this set is proof of that improvement. I only hope they do even better next time so that they can better compete with XINH and even the other brands like DLP. Of course, the official minifigs will always be better, but these are alternatives for those who can't get their hands on the official ones (TLG or third party).
