The Power of Packaging: FSS Iron Klaw
I’ve only partaken of a single FSS product thus far. While I’d love to dive in to the offerings, finances have prevented me from doing so. I managed to find the money to pick up Iron Klaw from the first set, mainly because I’m a huge GI Joe Extreme mark.
Some of the package art for the 25th anniversary as well as the FSS has been a bit wonky in terms of perspective and rendering. Maybe I’ve just been spoiled by the Hector Garrido’s always solid work on the original ARAH series. Regardless of art criticism, the painting depicts the figure included, from the IG Destro boots to the wicked bladed uzi and wrist-mounted shrimp skewers. Are we sure that’s not really Destro under that mask? All he’s missing is a little leopard print.
