Roadblock (2004)

SONY DSC

Funny enough that one of my favorite Roadblock figures was released in the Valor vs Venom era. Looking back at those last few years of the relaunch series, I find myself missing the idea of Toys R Us exclusive figure packs. Even though the sets were repaints, and many had issues, it was still nice …

Lady Jaye (2007)

Lady Jaye (2007)

The first of three Lady Jaye figures released in the 25th anniversary series, this version follows closely to the original 1985 figure and its card art. Her most…uh…distinguishing feature is her impressive decolletage. If you ever needed a sign that the modern GI Joe lines are aimed at collectors, Lady Jaye is equipped with two …

Dial-Tone (2011)

SONY DSC

I’m torn. I really like the vintage Dial Tone figure, but I have a hard time liking this one. The old Dial Tone had a very unique look, from his outfit to his weapons and accessories. He was another one of those 80s redesigns that kept life in the line. The concept of a communications …

Duke (1992)

Duke (1991)

Can you believe it took seven years to get a new Duke mold in the ARAH line? Pretty amazing considering the GI Joe poster boy he would become in later lines. I like this Duke a lot. Though the color scheme isn’t an accurate desert camo, the tan and red work together well. My only …

Edward “Starduster” Skylar (2007)

Starduster

Some of the art of customizing, or creating a new figure using either paint, sculpting, or mixing of parts, is the effective choice of said parts. To have an idea in mind, and to make the right choice from thousands of possibilities in the various GI Joe line, is a daunting process. It’s made even …

Lt. Clay Moore (2007)

SONY DSC

Sometimes when I look through my figures for the next batch of subjects, I get all wistful about one or two, particularly if I haven’t looked at them in a while. That’s what happened when I grabbed this guy out of the 2007 con set. This figure impresses me for two reasons, beyond the fact …

Iron Klaw (2013)

Iron Klaw

I’ve been a fan of GI Joe Extreme since…okay, maybe fan is too strong a word. I’ve had a sick fascination with GI Joe Extreme since its inception. The biggest part of that fascination is the series’ villain, Iron Klaw. Sure, he was broadly drawn, and the gimmick of his alter ego should have been …

Toxic Zartan (2007)

SONY DSC

For your consideration: Toxic Zartan. Before you hit the ‘Back’ button on your browser, for a moment, take Sigma 6 out of its place in GI Joe history as the line that supplanted an improving small scale line in 2005. Put the mostly god awful cartoon series out of your mind. Look at the figures …

Flint (2002)

Flint (2002)

In remembering back to the time of the new GI Joe 2002 series, there was a clamor by fans for the well known classic characters of the 80s. Most folks also wanted to see their favorites decked out in their old duds as well. Flint obliges, although he’s more than a little odd looking, like …
