G.I. Joe Trooper (Retaliation)

Well, after last year’s delay of the upcoming G.I. Joe: Retaliation movie, it seems that Hasbro action figures are finally hitting the pegs where I live.

AWE Striker

The AWE Striker has been around for a long time. Since 1985 in fact. It’s been repainted several times and is somewhat of a staple of the line. That said, I’ve never owned one until I saw this one at a good price. I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the box. The backdrop folds […]

Night Fox

It seems like these days, any driver or pilot that comes with a vehicle is an after thought. An easy place to cost cut, articulation and accessories for these figures may soon be a thing of the past. However, that wasn’t the case all that long ago. Case in point, Night Fox, the driver that […]

Joe Colton

  It’s the return of Bruno, as Bruce Willis moonlights from the Die Hard franchise to visit the world of GI Joe as Joe Colton.  Joe Colton you ask? Who’s that? It’s the name given in the Real American Hero (RAH) universe to a character that is an homage to the very first 12″ GI […]

Ace (Vintage)

Well I didn’t think was right to look at the new Ace without taking a look back at the vintage one. This Ace came with the original Skystriker and his design was featured in most of his early comic appearances: Appearnace: He looks like an astronaut. There I said it. It’s probably not Hasbro’s fault. […]

Captain Ace

I’ve mentioned a lot in GI Joe reviews how I was an Air Force brat. It should come as no surprise that I’m an Ace fan. I did put off getting the newest Skystriker for awhile, though. First, I had the old one. Second, I don’t really have a place to display it. My thoughts […]

Underscoopfire’s 50 Greatest GI Joe Characters

Head Swap: Zombie COBRA Swat

I have to say this was a purely based on the new season of  the Walking Dead. In the season premier, one of the cooler looking zombies were prison guards that had been turned. While slightly controversial to some, they did look cooler than the typical walkers. Now, I had an idea to put this […]

USMC Heavy Machine Gunner

USMC Heavy Machine Gunner

A few years ago, a company called Blue Box International took it upon themselves to produce action figures based on several military branches and time periods. They tackled mostly “modern” military figures under the label Elite Force, meaning they made toy soldiers from World War II onwards. One of the latter day figures produced was the USMC Heavy Machine Gunner I’m reviewing today.

Marauder Stands

  I’m not a big stand user. However, there are times as an action figure collector you need a stand for a figure that just wants to fall over at the slightest breeze. There’s a number of options out there, and I’ve tried a few of them over the years. However, I was recently intrigued […]

Marauder Vector

I swear ever time I watch Sons of Guns I learns something about guns and GI Joe. This week I learned that the guns shown in the new Total Recall are Kriss Vectors. It’s also the same type of gun that came with the POC Dusty. When I first saw this gun, I really thought […]

Cobra Commander (Retaliation)

It sure seems like Cobra Commander is turning into the Darth Vader of GI Joe figures. Yet I keep buying them. Honestly, I was going to set this guy aside and try and flip him later. But it got the better of me. Appearance: Is this a screen accurate Cobra Commander from GI Joe: Retaliation? Who […]

Marauder Pistols

I fear I’m becoming addicted to all the fine items over at Marauder. There were a couple of new pistols in the just recently released series 6 from them. This made me think it was a perfect time to gather up some hand guns and try and see what I thought of them all. Tactical […]

GI Joe Magazine (Fall 88)

I will be 100% honest. I really only picked this up because I liked the cover art.  Well, what I was really hoping was there was a story in the magazine related to the cover art. I never actually knew this magazine existed. In the pre-internet days, it seemed like every property would do something […]
