Again, I don’t know much about Ultimate Sabretooth, so the intro section is
going to be light. In fact, if you blinked, you just missed it.
So, look at the stats from yesterday’s R. Wolverine. Notice anything? Yeah,
they’re VIRTUALLY the same, except instead of Flurry, R Sabretooth has
Charge, and no TA. For one extra point you lose the Brotherhood TA, and
Flurry and gain Charge. Not a bad trade off in my mind. That’s where the
simlaritites end though, as the Exp. is just a beefed up version of the
Rookie, as is the Veteran, though you do get Flurry with the Vet. In fact,
why would you bother using this Ultimates version of Sabretooth, when the
original IC and Universe version is cheaper and better? Beyond me? See
that’s what I don’t understand about this game, two versions of the same
character, same power level (both Vets), same Rarity level (both Rares), and
one is WAAAAY better than the other. Strange.
REV sets are selling for a max of $10, though that’s rare, they’re really
topping off around $6, which STINKS for a 3-4-5 REV set. I guess most
players realize this is a more expensive, slightly less powerful version of
the original figure. Too bad, because this is a far superior sculpt.
My Ratings: Playability first then Collectability
Next time: Moving away from the mutants to one of the Ultimates. Here’s a
hint, he wears armor. Shouldn’t be too tough to figure out.
