All I can think of when I see the head on this figure is, the possible title for a SyFy original movie: “When Turtlenecks Attack!” Does anyone have any idea what happened here? Was Dusty the victim of a bizarre shaving accident, or does he just have some sort of farmer’s tan on his face and neck?
If any figure represents the shodiness and inattention to detail that the multi packs had become late in the new sculpt era, it’s this one. Frustratingly confusing in construction and origin, Desert Patrol Dusty stands close to Stars and Stripes Breaker as one of the most alarmingly crappy Joe figures in my collection.
Words fail me, folks. So in lieu of further pain and suffering, I’ll just offer a close-up of the head. A word of advice–look quickly, then move on, like ripping a band aid off a particularly hairy body part.
