I’m a bit tardy on posting this but the G.I. Joe Collector’s Club has unveiled the “man behind the mask” for their forthcoming Charbroil convention figure! Take a look and see if he looks familiar:
The GIJCC has shown us once again that a simple swap of color palate can produce an entirely new character. Eagle-eyed fans will recognize this as the Hydro-Viper from the stunning Defense of Cobra Island 7 pack released a few years ago that was recently reused as the Figure Subscription Service Dice figure!
I’ll admit it– the change in hair color works. (The Dice image is courtesy of GeneralsJoes.com.) It helps to differentiate Charbroil from Dice enough that they don’t appear to be twins at first glance. Sure, it’s a cost-saving method by the Club to reuse an existing figure tool for the head but it’s one that works for the most part. It’s nowhere near as bad as the case of limited genetics that was the original 1982 line-up!!
