Image reveals product within the Amazon.com G.I. Joe: Renegades 4-Pack

Thanks to Destro from HissTank.com for posting an image that reveals some details about the Amazon Exclusive G.I. Joe: Renegades 4-Pack story we broke early this week.  This single image is truly fascinating.  Check it out below:

Uhhh WOW.

Yeah, these are not straight-up repaints of figures we got already.  That right there looks like at least some new tooling.  Duke is obviously the same with the addition of recolored Cobra Trooper legs (don’t know how I feel about that).  But Storm Shadow is considerably different.  The head sculpt looks more animated, the proportions of the arms (not to mention the sleeveless look) are certainly different.  Very, very interesting.  Snake Eyes is a little tough to tell, though the feet at least look different.

And is it just me, or are there some different hip joints going on there?

Plus, look at the feet.  The sculpt there looks exaggerated, too.  Maybe I’m wrong, but I’m seriously wondering if these were some of the “animated” style figures we’d heard about before the outcry moved us back to the more realistic style.  Very interesting.  I just went from pretty excited to absolutely ecstatic.  Here’s hoping we get to see some of these figures in more detail soon, this is just aching to be dissected.

Fantastic.

UPDATE – As commentor Plokoon5 points out as well, it looks like Duke has G.I. Joe: Renegades Law’s hands instead of his original hands, which is a significant improvement to the figure as well.  It took one of the glaring flaws in that figure and improved it 100%.  Good observation.

  1. Duke also appears to have Law’s hands, so that is another small change to the figure.

  3. if that joint is what i think it is…..man i hope they kept the T-bar inside. that looks like the ”thigh” swivel of marvel universe. i cant do anything with that joint that comes close to the joe Tbar.
    man, am i shocked that snake has the coat…but i hope thats not cloth…duke looks like the write-off i suspected, the red ninja looks cool…and i can always appreciate another storm shadow.
    depends on the price….but theyve certainly got my attention.

  4. oh…and itd be nice to actually have some ordering info from amazon.

  5. Does Duke have a different collar with asymmetrical shoulders (namely, a green strap on the right side)? That would fit better with his animated style.

  6. Stormy looks to have the Resolute/City Strike Snake Eyes arms and hands, at least from the elbow down.

  8. Well, no 30th Storm Shadow, which would have helped (since I can’t find ’em anywhere) but at least this new Storm Shadow and Red Ninja look cool! Duke would be good for parts, and I like the trench Snakes. Looks like it might be a buy!

  9. I’m an absolutely shameless fan of Renegades and I would have bought the set for box art alone. Now that the figs are different I’m going to go nuts for them. I love Renegades Duke but Law and Order did a better job with the wrists. Now that is fixed. I’m psyched for the new twists and I can’t wait to see a better shot of SE and the overcoat.

  11. That’s pretty awesome. I think I will swap his lower legs with the regular Duke though. The extra large knee pads don’t quite seem to suit him.
