Cobra Trooper

This is a bit strange, I’ve never reviewed a repaint of a figure that I’ve reviewed before. But here we go. This version is carded as Cobra Infantry. The original figure I reviewed was more in line with the vintage line, calling the figure Cobra (The Enemy). You can read that review here. Appearance: Why […]

Shipwreck GI Joe Rise of Cobra

Shipwreck is one of the characters I was really surprised didn’t make the cut for GI Joe: Rise of Cobra. His snarky attitude made him a fan favorite in the animated and comic book versions of Joe. (Flash was the other one I was expecting to see in action in the film.) While the vintage […]

Rex “The Doctor” Lewis

Ever since Episode One of Star Wars came out, I’ve made an effort to avoid as many spoilers for a film as I can without going out of my way. I really wanted to like “GI Joe: Rise of Cobra” before I saw it. But I had my doubts. As such, I really didn’t get […]

Armored Panther w/Sgt. Thunderblast

Normally the amount of suspension of disbelief required for me to accept the existence of an attack helicopter the size of a compact car proves too much, but, What about tanks the size of compact cars?…

Snake Eyes (Paris Pursuit)

Snake Eyes (Paris Pursuit) is arguably among the coolest figures from the movie line, even though if it’s not the most pose-able of the bunch, and it succeeds in providing a refreshing new look for the character.

Errex Score: 95/100

Conrad “Duke” Hauser (Reactive Impact Armor)

After getting the previous version of Duke (the Desert Ambush version), I was not too interested on picking up this one too, but after seeing it in person, I decided to take the plunge and get it.

Cobra Elite Viper

As of this writing, I haven’t watched “GI Joe: Rise of Cobra” yet. I will, I just haven’t had a chance yet. Overall, the movie line of GI Joe figures has grown on me. However, the nearest Wal-Mart reduced their prices on the standard figures to $6. That makes me like them a whole lot […]

Kicking off what I hope will be a great series of reviews, Errex is showing off the Desert Ambush Duke from GI Joe: Rise of Cobra. Take it away: Right off the bat, I […]

GI Joe Pit Commando

If you have read any of my other GI Joe reviews, you would know I’m a sucker for accessories. Frequently, my selection revolves around how full a blister is rather that the exact Joe character. Stalker was a cool dude, but a single rifle on the card didn’t appeal to me. The Baroness figure from […]

The film version is based on the Real American Hero (RAH) animated series from the early eighties. That series was based on Hasbro’s line of action figures. And you know there […]

SEAL (Codename: Torpedo)

With GI Joe figures flying off shelves across the country, I was inspired to go back and dust of my meager collection of vintage Joes. And I do mean meager, I’ve got less than a dozen of the vintage soldiers. And considering that against the number of RAH figures out there, it’s very small.I have to say though, the […]

GI Joe 25th Anniversary Torpedo

Alright. I recently did a Retro Review for the Vintage GI Joe Navy Seal Codename: Torpedo. With the advent of the 25th Anniversary Joes, I had a plan. I was only going to get figures I didn’t have the vintage version of to help limit myself. To be honest, I wasn’t real impressed with the first few I saw. I passed […]

G.I. Joe Weather Dominator DVD Battle Pack

GI Joe was one of the biggest of the Eighties toy line cross overs into animation. It frequently featured the new heroes and villains as their toys reached the shelves. The vehicles were represented as well. For a number of Joe fans it’s hard to say whether it was the comic book, figures or cartoon […]
