Last week the SDCC 50th Anniversary Danger at the Docks sets went up on ToysRUs.com and this site admin was lucky enough to snag one! It finally arrived last week and that means it’s time for a brand new review here at JBL! Was this set, which features the VAMP Mk 2 and Flint in their original color schemes worth it? Or, was it another case of “wash, rinse, repaint?”
Head on over to the brand new 50th Anniversary Review Index and check it out the review of the SDCC 50th Anniversary Danger at the Docks to find out one Joe fan’s opinion!
Excellent review and pics. Well worth the four-page spread! This set really does give you a lot of bang for your buck. Between the awesome ’84 VAMP Mark II update and the MMB weapons cache, this set is full of surprises. (Who knew that you could complete your modern Road Pig thanks to that nifty new Wrist Crossbow?) There’s a lot to love here and minor disadvantages such as the lousy paint apps don’t diminish the coolness factor.
I still feel bad for the 12″ inch collectors because this was their anniversary more than that of the ARAH generation and it really does feel like Hasbro is striking the tent on the G.I. Joe brand once more. Time will tell where things go from here, but I’m happy for this one set and the chance to revisit the glory days.
