I can’t get over this…as much of a Hasbro fanboy as I am, I cannot help but admit usually figure design and production is a fairly fluid, up and down thing. Very rarely do we get terrific figures every time all the time…in fact, I’d say that never happens.
But over the next two months, we’re getting the first wave of Pursuit of Cobra and two Resolute boxed sets, and someone kick me, I must be dreaming. I can’t find a crap figure among the lot of them.
Granted, there are some improvements that could have been made (such as Scarlett and Baroness’ super-foreheadness) but by and large, from design, to sculpt, to paint, to articulation, there are almost twenty figures here, and they are ALL great. All of them. Even figures that don’t knock my socks off design-wise have fantastic accessories and other very cool qualities.
I’m not sure why this concept hasn’t been grasped so whole-heartedly before, but the combination of military design, future aesthetic, fantastic accessories out the whazoo, and amazing design and articulation has already made The Pursuit of Cobra the highlight of the G.I. Joe universe over the past several years. So, because of that, even though we’ve seen these figures time and time again, when Winter God over on ACToys posted about G.I. Joe: Resolute and the Pursuit of Cobra right here, I just had to mirror the larger, more detailed images. I just can’t get enough of how awesome these toys are. Check out the images below.
