GeneralsJoes Reviews G.I. Joe: Retaliation Joe Colton

Yippie Ki-Yay, mother….

I know I used the whole mother flocker line when Bruce Willis was first announced as Joe Colton in the upcoming G.I. Joe: Retaliation film, but since he’s..well.. totally bald, I’m not sure that makes sense.  This has been one of the figures that many folks out there have been waiting on pins and needles for.  I mean, who doesn’t want a 1:18 scale Bruce Willis/John McLane figure for their G.I. Joe universe?

Even with mostly reused parts, the eerily accurate head sculpt really brings the character to life.  Check out the full review on my G.I. Joe: Retaliation Review Page, or follow the link below:

  1. The more I see of this figure ( and in reviews like this) the more I find myself thinking the name of it should have been “Grandpa (G.I.)Joe”. He should have come with a rocking chair and a jog of moonshine, and the packaging could have a cardboard insert that folds into a semblance of a wooden front porch. Add in a electronic sound chip of Joes voice yelling ” at the kids to get off his lawn”! and it would reflect exactly how I see this figure.
    The review is fine, but my thoughts about the figure aren’t complimentary.

    IMO, this isn’t GIJoe Colton, certainly not the “original” Joe—because he doesn’t have the scar. Just sayin’.

  2. Yeah, the suspenders on this guy are a bit rough, simply because they’re the type of thing that should have been webgear. Maybe I’ll see if there’s something similar in my collection that’d work, because then it’d just take a coat of white paint to minimize the damage.

  3. I intend to just use him as an Adventure Team dude. I may pop the head onto Resolute Beachhead’s body or something.

  4. Easily the worst figure in years. No idea what you’re looking at, but wow! This guy went instantly into the custom parts bin. Looks absolutely nothing like Bruce Willis….maybe a 90 year old janitor. A great example of Hasbro getting everything wrong. If I was Bruce Willis I’d kick some toy maker ass at this insult….lol. But seriously, this s crap.

  5. When I showed this to my best friend yesterday, he immediately recognized it as Bruce Willis. He collects Marvel Universe, but not G.I. JOE, so he’d never even seen a photo of the figure before. That tells me it’s a pretty damn good likeness of ol’ Bruno.
