Belt Buckle Week – Day 4: Armadillo (1988)

One of the most undercooked GI Joe uniform designs gave rise to an impressive belt buckle. It’s the sort of thing you’d expect to see on a cowboy type, with a longhorn skull emblazoned across it. The fancy buckle actually works within the confines of the design of the figure’s lower extremities. Up top, he’s fairly plain, including his decidedly unattractive noggin. From the belt down however, he’s quite a bit more dressed up. Maybe we just caught him on wash day, and all he had clean was a simple shirt and some arm wraps. Maybe that also explains the belt. He probably borrowed it from fellow driver Wild Bill.

Did I mention this is a weird figure? Check out the full write up here.
