3.75" pf Plastic Heaven revisited…


By Shawn Robare

See Hoov, I learn from my mistakes eventually…

Nala over at Plastic Crack tipped me off to a new line of G.I. Joe Classics 3.75″ 25th anniversary figures that Hasbro will be releasing soon.  On the tail of the Transformers Classics line this is both cool and probably a hazard to my bank account.  I especially dig the Storm Shadow and Snake Eyes figures, but the basic Cobra Trooper and Scarlett are pretty bad ass.  Here are a load of pictures from the new line…

The Baroness is pretty good, but her glasses just look awful.  Maybe on the actual figure they’ll look a little better…

The Destro figure is pretty awesome too.  I love that the guns fit in the holsters and junk.

Dukes pretty boring, but then again, Duke is pretty boring, so no surprise there.

So what’s next, a 20th anniversary edition of the Masters of the Universe flick and an uber cool toy line to go with it?  Nevermind…

    Oww. Some of my all time favorites. Storm Shadow, Roadblock, Gung Ho and Scarlet. Well there goes that quaters bonus.

    It’s so funny how some of these guys are pictured holding both a projectile weapon and a melee weapon. Like it’s possible to use a crossbow and a big ass Hattori Hanzo sword at the same time (I guess it is if you’re Storm Shadow). But GI Joe was never about realism so what am I talking about? My favorites are the big ass one hand machine guns and rifles from hell. Whoa Baroness! Whoa Duke! Those rifles have got to be heavy, yet these guys are holding them in one hand like it’s no big deal. The only rifle holding figure that looks like they are practically prepared for combat is the Cobra soldier, whose rifle looks lightweight and even has a scope. Now that makes sense. Roadblock is so outrageous with his handheld heavy machine gun. What’s funny is their hands are sculpted with the intention of holding two weapons. What would be slightly more realistic is if all the rifles were sculpted with handguards (like the Baroness’s) and their left hands were sculpted to grasp them adequately. Kind of like the 300th Boba Fett figure from Star Wars, except it’s still pretty retarded to hold a rifle like Boba Fett does.

    Even though Roadblock always has and always will be my favorite Joe, the set still feels incomplete without Quick Kick.

    Whoa. You scooped me. I hadn’t heard about these yet. I’m down for ‘em all! Hasbro’s best Joe work YET perhaps!
