GeneralsJoes reviews the Sideshow Collectibles 12″ Duke

Yeah, I’m well aware that this figure has been out for a while, and we’ve gotten Flint and Beachhead since he was released…I’m a bit behind the times.  But when I had an opportunity to pick up a Sideshow Duke, I decided to jump on it, if only for iconic reasons.  At this point I’ve accepted the fact that I’m never going to own every Sideshow figure, it’s just not in the budget.  So, for that reason, I figure I have to be choosy and grab the impactful characters.  Duke certainly fits that bill.

I’ve reviewed a few Sideshow figures already, Snake Eyes and the Cobra Trooper.  I had somewhat mixed results from the two of them, and honestly, Duke totally blows them out of the water.  Great articulation, very nice design, awesome accessories…this one is the total package.

  1. I make this request of all Joe fans:

    If you’re skeptical of the Sideshow line you should save up some money and buy your favorite figure when it comes out. They are expensive, but they are fantastically made, and end up looking awesome on display. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed. I know I’m not with Beachhead.

    I agree with Psyche-Out, awesome dio. The poses and “realism” you can get with the figures is a treat to see.

  2. I knew you’d like this one. He’s not perfect but he’s one of my favorites so far. My one major gripe is the name badges. I’d prefer to have them sewed on rather than be swappable. In fact I may use some fabric glue and fasten mine down permanently. I don’t really see any reason to swap them out.
