Major Bludd (Sideshow Collectibles)


Sideshow caused quite a stir when they previewed their Major Bludd at the 2012 SDCC. I still can recall those stunning pictures of him standing in the case clutching his bloody Joe dog tags. I have to confess the poetry spouting Major was never one of my favorites as a kid, probably due to his characterization in the cartoons. Sideshow remedied some of this for me, this character came out bad to the bone. I know some hardcore enthusiasts do not like the liberties that Slideshow took with his arm and the uniform. I like all of their concepts here although some of them could be improved. The chest armor is a little puffy and the robotic arm is a little fiddley. The little details are awesome. Even the fins on the rockets are functioning and spring loaded. The Sideshow Exclusive was alternate portrait with scarred eye and clip-on augmented optical unit, which I like but never use in favor of the traditional eye patch. This figure ended up being the harbinger of a “Year of Cobra” from Sideshow that ended up bringing us Baroness, Destro and second versions of both Cobra Commander and Storm Shadow.
