When G.I. Joe Retaliation hits theatres in just shy of two months, fans will see the return of Duke, Snake Eyes, as well as the introduction of several new faces for the Joes in the form of Flint, Lady Jaye, and Roadblock. Cobra, on the other hand, only sees one familiar character make his cinematic debut: the mercenary Firefly! A long time favorite of fans, the Cobra Saboteur is brought to life by actor Ray Stevenson– recently seen in other genre films like Thor and Punisher: War Zone.
The good folks at Hasbro included Firefly, complete with actor likeness, in Wave 2 of the G.I. Joe Retaliation toy line which is just now hitting toy shelves. So, is this new incarnation of Firefly, complete with Blast Board, worth adding to any Joe collection? Check out the review at the G.I. Joe Retaliation Review Index and find out one Joe fan’s opinion!
On a side note, I’ve finally got most of my photo set-up put back together post-move so expect more reviews of Retaliation figures in the coming days!
I’ll be getting one (due to importing a whole case to my country) so the Torso and head are what I’ll be taking from this figure. The rest… eh.
3-Pack Firefly seems to be the way to go, and the Ultimate movie one coming out later doesn’t seem too bad either. But none have that fantastic Ray Stevenson head.
