The G.I. Joe Collector’s Club has released a teaser image of Bombstrike from the Figure Subscription Service 3.0 roster!
Normally, I’ve been enjoying these previews but this time I can’t honestly tell what we’re getting. This is by far the most “digital’ of all of the mock-up right down to a head that might have been lifted directly from a video game!
The original Bombstrike figure was released in Valor vs. Venom wave 7 in a two-pack that also featured the redesigned Croc Master. That version was clad in a tan t-shirt and camouflage pants. The G.I. Joe Collector’s Club appears to be basing this version on Renegades version of Scarlett from a few years ago based on the legs and torso. However, rather than showcase mock-up of the sculpt we get a full-on digital version. Honestly, I understand that the Club is wanting to release preview images as far out from production as possible but I have very little idea what the final head sculpt will look like based on this. That might be the Agent Helix hair or that might be something entire new. I’d also like to know why Bombstrike is looking decidedly evil in that photo. I guess part of the “surprise” of getting this FSS will be seeing what Bombstrike actually looks like when she arrives.
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!
I agree, it’s too soon to make a call on this one. I’m not sure what is going on with her head. She does look more evil than badass. I suppose I was expecting something more fetching to the male eye, but since this is a digital sample, the jury is still out for now.
