Yeah, I know I’m like the last person today to report this news, but figured better late than never. If you follow me on Twitter you already heard my yammering, but for those who haven’t, here’s the official report.
Via Twitter, Facebook, and GIJoeClub.com, the G.I. Joe Collectors’ Club today revealed the 7th figure in their G.I. Joe subscription service… Jinx. Obviously using City Strike Scarlett as a heavy inspiration, Jinx is looking absolutely awesome with this updated tooling and colors somewhat inspired by the Valor Vs. Venom version.
A removable blindfold and some sweet weapons (also from City Strike Scarlett) gives us one hell of a nice 21st Century update to the 1987 female cousin to Storm Shadow. I’m somewhat surprised the Club got her worked in here, since she’s in the upcoming G.I. Joe: Retaliation film, but here she is, and she looks fantastic.
All in one fell swoop, the Club has managed to cover a lot of bases. This figure is a fantastic update to a character that many collectors have been clamoring for. She’s a great tie-in to the G.I. Joe movie sequel. She gives us a nice allotment of the City Strike Scarlett weapons we’ve been dying for, AND she looks like she would make a damn impressive version of Scarlett from the Sigma 6 universe. Awesome.
