Released as part of the Battle Corps series, Law was originally intended to be a member of the DEF (Drug Elimination Force) a short lived sub-group of the Joe team that battled the evil Headman and his Headhunters, who were out to get all the kids of America high on drugs. Oh yes, the 90’s how I do miss you. You always knew what was best for us.
It wouldn’t be a 90’s Joe without a big-ass missile launcher and some eye-popping paint. I had to showcase Law with his original weapons first, because I’m just crazy about the nuclear explosion of color here. The figure itself doesn’t fare too badly in the bright paint department, with the yellow straps being the only obnoxious color. The sculpting detail is where this figure really shines. His padded arms, legs and chest have a molded in texture that is rarely seen on Joe figures. The helmet is a particularly nice and original design, and the exposed and stern looking eyes remind me of the early 80’s masked figures like Torpedo and Storm Shadow.
Throw a decently colored normal weapon in his hand and Law makes a very nice updated military police operative. Too bad the mold was never recolored, as it could have benefitted from a little more subtle color than the bright yellow. It could even have been used effectively as a generic trooper as well.
