Funskool Barbecue

Funskool Barbecue Skydiver GI Joe Cobra ARAH vintageWhat a strange little figure. I can’t really say this one’s good; on the contrary, I think he’s actually rather bad. Funskool put figures in some curious little color schemes back when they had the license to produce GI Joe toys. Sometimes, this worked out in awesome ways (Toxo-Viper), other times however, you got figures like this guy.

Barbecue’s colors aren’t all that different from his Hasbro version on the surface. He’s still orange, and swaps gray for blue, and silver for… flesh tone. Flesh tone! Some variants had yellow masks which made more sense, although they still look pretty ugly. This figure could have some good custom potential, but other than that, he’s not too great.
