Code Name: JONAS “#########” JEFFRIES

Features NEW cloth scarf. Includes: removable scarf, goggles,
jacket, pistol, sub machine gun, and figure stand.

I’ll say it now– using the name “Ghostrider” and then promptly losing access to it was the best thing that ever happened to the pilot of the X-19.  Suddenly, instead of being yet another Joe pilot, he was the guy whose name no one could remember.  In an instant, the forgettable pilot became unforgettable– at least to this Joe fan.

However, let’s talk about this figure’s build… Continue reading

FSS 6 Hardtop blasts into view!

The G.I. Joe Collector’s Club is going full-bore with the FSS 6 previews including today’s reveal: Hardtop!

G.I. Joe FSS 6 Hardtop

G.I. JOE SPACE VEHICLE LAUNCH OPERATOR
Code Name: HARDTOP

(Inspired by the 1987 action figure!)
Includes: removable harness, pistol, wrench, tool case,
and figure stand.

Like so many of the FSS 6 reveals thus far, Hardtop contains few surprises.  Ever since the Club released FSS 2 Tollbooth I’ve been wondering when they’d get around to re-purposing that head for the Defiant launch vehicle operator.  This is the Club, after all, and they have a penchant for finding ways to reuse parts they’ve produced.
