I just can’t seem to get enough of the Steel Brigade. This ad from an Action Force magazine is even more bold than the various US pamphlets that touted the figure. It even pictures the toy itself. Very nice.
The concept of ordering an action figure that you (sort of) created still piques my interest. This is definitely something Hasbro could capitalize on if GI Joe makes it back to the mainstream, kid-focused toy aisle. I can see an online order form, along with customizable accessories or even alternate heads to choose from. Maybe even folks could pay a bit extra to get a custom printed head sculpt. Heck, even us grown-up collector types would get in on the fun.
