Better late than never, the G.I. Joe Collector’s Club starts off the week with another preview of Figure Subscription Service 3.0. Feast your eyes on the G.I. Joe machine gunner Repeater!
As with many of the Nocturnal Fire characters in this series, Repeater is back to basics! Based on the G.I. Joe Retaliation Ultimate Roadblock body, this figure is generation 3 version of the original 1988 Repeater!
Owners of the 2013 Night Force Repeater raved about the figure design when it was used in that year’s Joe Con set. The bulky body design gave the character a lot more body mass than the original but that was fitting for a soldier who wielded the massive steadicam machine gun that came in the convention set. This time around, however, Repeater has been downsized just a bit and is merely a “machine gunner”.
He’s got a slick painted SAW but I can’t help but miss the character’s signature weapon more than just a little. Fans have been mixed in their reactions to some of the recent FSS 3.0 reveals from the G.I. Joe Collector’s Club so it remains to be seen if this will get the same attention that Hit & Run’s missing face paint did. Still, it’s a nice update on the original, even if his kit looks a bit light.
If you’ve not already subscribed to the G.I. Joe Collector’s Club FSS 3.0, you’ll want to do so before June 30, 2014!
