It’s been a while since any new G.I. Joe reviews have been posted at JBL and there is a good reason. After a year long search, I finally bought and moved into a new house over the holidays. The good part is that there is a lot more room for Amanda, the cats, and I. The bad news is that most of Joe stuff is still in boxes– and that includes the photo setup. However, some quick jury rigging allowed me to shoot a few pics recently of my most anticipated figure from the entire G.I. Joe Retaliation line: Joe Colton! Sure, the photos are quite up to my usual standards but they proved to be a lot of fun to shoot!
I won’t lie– I don’t see this figure as the bearded General that Larry Hama first introduced us to back in G.I. Joe vol 1 #86. Instead, I picture him as a certain plucky New York cop who always seems to find himself in the wrong place at the wrong time when terrorists attack. That’s right– I’m talking about Officer John McClane of the Die Hard franchise.
Regardless of how you use this Bruce Willis action figure in your collection, check out JBL’s first review of 2013 in the G.I. Joe Retaliation Review Index!
