G.I. Joe: Retaliation Duke reviewed at Carded Heroes

As I mentioned yesterday, Jay over at Carded Heroes picked up the first wave of G.I. Joe: Retaliation figures at his local Meijer’s, and is now doing a G.I. Joe: Retaliation “theme week” to celebrate!

Today he covers Duke.  I’ve mirrored just a couple of images below, check out the full review over at Carded Heroes.

  • Scramble

    The accessories are even worse than they looked in the press pics.

  • Deliman1000

    Yeah this duke is terrible.

  • Neon Viper

    Fail

    While I concede the point that the accessories look ridiculous, and while I hardly need another Tatum head (though the paint apps make it look fairly distinct), this figure is awesome! When’s the last time we got a detailed sculpt like this that wasn’t monochrome, with the excuse that a vest or some other webgear would just cover it anyway?

    I see LOTS of customizing potential here. Specifically, I could see this body being a base for a modern reinterpretation of any (or several) of the Original Thirteen.

  • The Spectre

    I may be in the minority, but I love the rifle he comes with. That may be because i am a sci-fi customizer and not a realistic military customizer, but i dig it :)

    YOu all know where to send your unwanted rifles…LOL

  • Darren

    His arms look to long. Kind of like an orangutan. I dub thee “Duke the great ape”.

  • Swivel-Arm Beer-Grip

    I don’t know if anyone watched the “Generation Kill” miniseries on HBO, but Duke’s headsculpt looks remarkably like the dimwitted “Captain America” character.
