Tiger Force Tunnel Rat
The European exclusive Tiger Force figures are an odd lot when held up against their domestic teammates. While there’s no argument that many of the US Tiger Force team would stand out like sore thumbs in the jungle, they were downright subdued when compared to the fellas from overseas.
At first glance, you’d think old T-Rat had stolen the pants off Battle Corps Bazooka. Not so. These are plain Jane tiger stripes, albeit in a lovely shade of blue. I suppose they are dark enough to read as denim, which would make the tiger pattern even more impressive. If a pair of tiger jeans don’t qualify as nice pants, I don’t know what does.
Again, the euro Tiger Force was a colorful bunch. I am always amazed at the number of colors that were pulled together in this figure. Along with Outback, he’s always been one of my favorites of the bunch. I used to think it was due to the color palette, but now I realize it is because of his orange striped bandana. That thing is almost as cool as Outback’s orange tiger face t-shirt. It may just be amazing enough to inspire a new theme–Nice Do-Rag Week.
