Slip Stream (2003)
Just what happened to Slip Stream’s face mask? Shouldn’t these things have a hose of some sort that connect to any oxygen supply? In fact, the Ace mold on which the body is based had a helmet that plugged right into the figure’s chest. You can still see the little hole, in fact. Maybe there’s some sort of new pilot gear I’m not aware of. Someone please correct me if so, because I don’t do a whole lot (if any) research as part of this blog.
I’m not complaining about the head, it’s always just made me wonder. The fact that a new head was made was a nice little bonus. I know the year had its fair share of new heads in the comic packs, but I don’t recall remolded drivers getting the same treatment. Regardless, he didn’t get much use for me, other tan hanging out in the cockpit of the excellently repainted Toys R Us exclusive Conquest X-30.
Man, I wish TRU was still committed to exclusive GI Joe product. Oh yeah, that reminds me of something. Stick around…
