Another day, another G.I. Joe FSS 5 preview featuring Darklon!
IRON GRENADIER COURIER: DARKLON
(Based on the classic 1989 action figure!)
Includes: removable harness, scabbard belt with sword, re-tooled projectile rifle, auto pistol, courier case, pistol, and figure stand.

Holy 1989 homage, Destro! This Darklon is straight up an homage to the original version of the character from the A Real American Hero line. Right off the bat, I’m seeing a reuse of the convention exclusive Darklon from 2012 head sculpt– which makes perfect sense to me. I’m also seeing the legs of the 25th Anniversary Iron Grenadiers Destro which adds a nice bit of MARS cohesion. As far as the rest of the build, it’s hard to tell with this heavily photo-shopped mock-up. Still, it’s a decent look for the G.I. Joe FSS 5 build of Darklon.
With three reveals in three days, is the sign-up coming soon?
