GI Joe Extreme Cross-Sell
In the interests of equal time, we present another in a series of occasional GI Joe Extreme posts. The series isn’t anyone’s favorite, but it deserves coverage, if only for historical context.
To be honest, there’s a bit of the line that I don’t mind. Some of the vehicles in particular contain interesting features, and the bold design and construction may appeal to you if you’re also a fan of 1990s Kenner output like Predator, Aliens and Terminator. The series’ overall style is big and dumb, but there’s value in such things, I believe. I feel I must qualify that statement by pointing out that I’m also weird.
Extreme died on the vine, but it wasn’t for lack of effort when it came to the dio shots on the back of the packaging. The figures may not appeal, but I can appreciate the presentation. I also have to give credit for peppering in a bit of (then-recent) Joe history with good old Sgt. Savage.
