We’ve seen scattered pictures on eBay, and of course from Toy Fair itself, but overseas message board ACToys has posted what appear to be the first in hand pictures of a release-ready G.I. Joe Trooper. At least assumption is this is a release ready figure. The images also have pictures of the packaging as well as the figure itself.
Of note is the fact that there isn’t a filecard on the package, which I did mention in Toy Fair reporting…but this fact caused Kevin to go into a wild nerd rage spasm during our last What’s on Joe Mind recording. A moment to look forward to for sure.
For now, though, simply revel in the images of the G.I. Joe Trooper, which actually make the figure look really nice. Instead of the cloth blue cape that we saw before (which was confusing everyone as to its purpose), this version of the Trooper has a plastic molded cape closer in color to the figure itself, which frankly makes a big difference. That blue looked pretty out of place. Now I’m not a massive fan of the idea of G.I. Joe Troop builders, but I’ll be damned if this isn’t a pretty nice looking figure. Also of note, he has double-jointed knees and appears to have those glorious rocker ankles, too. Excellent.
Check out the images at ACToys, and also mirrored below.
Thanks to HissTank.com for the heads up!
