Zartan (2006 Sigma 6)

Zartan (2006 Sigma 6)

Every time I dig out a Sigma 6 figure to cover here at the site, I’m amazed at the wonderfully fun aspects of almost all of the figures in the series. Loads of articulation, great functional accessories and a fresh unique style made for the best and most fun toys GI Joe had to offer …

Storm Shadow (2008)

Storm Shadow (2008)

Yes, there are a lot of versions of Storm Shadow. Maybe one day, I will have covered them all, before I call the blog quits. Most of the recent versions came from the 2007 with the 25th Anniversary line. As comic pack figures go, this one is somewhat interesting in terms of its look. Based …

25th Anniversary Outback

25th Anniversary Outback

by KansasBrawler I have fond memories of my brother’s Outback figure growing up. The figure was pretty simple, but at the same time, that look fit the Joe’s survival expert very well. When I first heard Outback was up for inclusion in the 25th Anniversary line, I was happy. He definitely deserved it. I wasn’t …

Super Joe Commander (1977)

Super Joe Commander (1977)

It took a while, but I finally got to a Super Joe figure. Actually, I did an April Fool’s Day post a few years ago, but this time…it’s serious. Super Joe is the forgotten middle child of the GI Joe toyline. The other two ends of the brand’s timeline have their own respective army of …

Road Bullet (1995)

Road Bullet (1995)

Extreme times call for extreme firepower, and extreme times also call for extreme motorcycles. Hell, extreme times call for extreme everything. While GI Joe Extreme left a lot to be desired with regards to figures, especially when compared to the Real American Hero series, I found the vehicles to be quite fun and refreshingly different. …

Ice Viper (2014)

Ice Viper (2014)

Man, was my first impression of this figure ever wrong. I initially covered it quickly as part of a video review of the Battle Below Zero pack, and didn’t really put much thought into it at the time. I really regret that, as upon closer inspection, it’s a pretty amazing figure. For a modern driver …

The Doc (Z Force Medic)

Z-Force Medic

Every military force needs a field medic, and Action Force was no different. I find the early Action Force figures fascinating not only for the quality of their sculpts, but also for their resemblance to real world military uniforms and equipment. While Hasbro’s 80s GI Joes were positioned 10 minutes into the future, much of …

Red Ninja Viper (2004)

Red Ninja Viper (2004)

Is there a more iconic GI Joe ninja figure than the original 1984 Storm Shadow? For me, the first one remains the favorite, for nostalgic reasons, as well as the perfect simplicity of the mold. The Red Ninja Viper, part of the Ninja Cobra Strike Team (that’s not a typo, by the way) was released …
