The G.I. Joe FSS 5 previews continue with a sneak peek of Sneak Peek!
G.I. JOE ADVANCED RECON: SNEAK PEEK
(Based on the classic 1987 action figure!)
Includes: removable helmet & vest, assault rifle, binoculars, field radio,
modern era design periscope, and figure stand.

It’s a foregone conclusion when the Club releases a sub-team version of a new character that the standard release will follow before too long. Case in point: Tiger Force Sneak Peek is now returning as standard version Sneak Peek. However, rather than a straight repaint, the Club opted to make some changes. The figure’s web gear has been changed and, to my eyes, it’s actually less of a match for the original 1987 design than the vest used in the recent Tiger Force release. I’m not entirely certain what the reason was for the change but it is what it is. (It looks a bit short in the picture.) Otherwise, it’s a decent update albeit one that once again reuses the 25th Anniversary Airborne head. #Twinning indeed!
Plus, it’s STILL better than Salvo!
