Sgt. Smasher – Slaughter’s Marauders

For the final reveal by the Collectors Club we get Sgt. Slaughter… wait, nope it’s Sgt. Smasher.  Sgt. Smasher is the Slaughter’s Marauders Sqaud Leader and will be leading the team into battle against the Python Patrol.  Sgt. Smasher is a brand new character design that is inspired by “Mister C” from the Sunbow cartoon.  I will be the first to admit I didn’t remember Mister C from the cartoon and had to look him up (picture below).  Sgt. Smasher brings with him quite a lot of controversy thus far.  I know a lot of fans were clamoring for Sgt. Slaughter to lead the team but it looks like the Club was not able to secure the rights.  Putting all the controversy aside Sgt. Smasher looks pretty good.  It’s not everyday that we get a new character and I for one will take it.  It’s a nice addition to the GI Joe mythos and the figure looks nice with a new head sculpt and a new removable drill instructor hat.  Take a look below and let us know what you think.

  1. Mr. C was a white Mr. T parody. This looks like a bootleg Sgt. Craig “Pitbull” Pittman. I guess that’s a little less tacky than trying to sneak through a bootleg Sgt. Slaughter.

    Did Fun Pub think this would be well received? Why do Slaughter’s Marauders if you know you can’t get Sgt. Slaughter? Why tease people by using Sgt. Slaughter’s internationally acceptable name? Between this and the Sitterson mess does anyone at Hasbro pay attention to what they’re approving?

  2. Um…doesn’t everyone realize that Sarge will be the carded figure? They’re trying to rescue him, so doesn’t that make more sense than saying he won’t be in the set?

  3. Ah. They barely send me emails to tell me when major things happen, so I may have missed this :)
