1989 Recoil

With the myriad of GI Joe specialists who serve unique, but sometimes limiting purposes, it’s fairly logical to have a few guys who are good for almost any situation. Recoil is one of those figures, who provides a lot and … Continue reading

2000 Whiteout

Hasbro made some strange choices during the early 2000‘s with the Joe line. Snow Job’s mold was one in particular we saw quite often despite that I don’t think there was ever any real demand for it. Snow Job’s a … Continue reading

2005 Cobra Trooper

New Sculpt era figures aren’t held very dear in the Joe community, especially nowadays. I’m a bit of a fan of the era, as some of the figures are truly excellent, especially the one’s from the Direct to Consumer Line. … Continue reading

1984 Copperhead

The 1984 Cobras were the characters that really stuck with GI Joe for a long time. Although many more underrated characters would come out in the later eighties and into the nineties, there wasn’t a single year with so many … Continue reading

1985 Airtight

Ah, Airtight.One of the guys from GI Joe’s golden year of 1985. I’m always a tad more appreciative of figures with interesting specialties. In ‘85, there weren’t as many chemical warfare/hazmat figures running around, which made Airtight all the more … Continue reading

Funskool Toxo Viper

This figure is what makes Funskool figures fun to me. You take an already good figure like the V1 Toxo Viper, put it in the V2 Toxo Viper’s colors and have an even better figure. It’s interesting as a novelty … Continue reading

1989 Alley Viper

One of my all time favorite figures. The colors might be bright, but they’re attractive to say the least. It matches up with the kind of look Shockwave had. When it comes to late eighties Cobras, this guy, the Night … Continue reading
