Interesting… very interesting.
I’m going to admit it now– I don’t know much about the character of Steel Raven. I know that she had 2 – 3 appearances in Season 1 of G.I. Joe Extreme before becoming a more prominent character in Season 2. (Despite the fact that I own a fan-produced copy of the series on DVD I’ve only ever watched a few episodes of the series.) I also know that she’s been featured more recently in the G.I. Joe Collector’s Club magazine comics as part of the “runaway Mindbender” story. Aside from this, she’s a bit of a blank slate for me– and that’s just fine. After all, wasn’t part of the original mandate of the FSS to produce figures that fans may have never seen before?
The parts combination seems pretty solid. I’m not quite feeling the disparity in the placement of the brown for her overcoat between the upper and lower torso but that could just be a result of the Photoshop mockup. It’s hard to tell if that’s the same head that was used for Crimson Asp from the 2013 Nocturnal Fire set or not. (My gut instinct says that the Club would have called out any newly tooled parts had they been used.) Still, overall I’m digging it.
