As the Joe Con 2017 reveals continue, feast your eyes on Battle Force 2000 Knockdown!
G.I. JOE BF 2000 TEAM:
– 25th Anniversary Style/Fully Poseable Action Figure.
– 1st Modern Era Release of Character based on 1987 design.
– Includes removable Helmet and Vest, Tactical Rifle, Re-tool
of iconic Ground to Air Pistol, and G.I. Joe Logo Stand.
(Note: Photo depicts action figure mock-up and final product may slightly differ.)
The Battle Force 2000 Sky Sweeper driver Knockdown is back– even if this image is pretty Photoshop heavy. Right off, I’ll admit that I didn’t see the reuse of the 2013 Retaliation Lift Ticket helmet coming but it works! The PoC Techno-Viper lower legs are a decent approximation of the original 1987 Knockdown design— or at least as well as could be done with existing parts. I can also appreciate the newly-tooled vintage weapon recreation– even if I’d much rather have a new head sculpt for the character.
As far as the Joe Con 2017 previews go, he’s not bad. He’s not the strongest of the three, but he’s not bad. Definitely a decent approximation of the original design.
So far, we’ve had the following characters from this year’s set revealed:
G.I. Joe Battle Force 2000:
- Avalanche, Blaster, Blocker, Dodger, Knockdown, Maverick
- BAT Squad Leader, ???, ???
Without a greater description of this set, we’re still left wondering just who exactly is coming on the Cobra side of this year’s Battle Force 2000 vs Cobra BATs set. Could Overkill be in the works?

The head does look new.
30th Techno-Viper legs and webgear aside, I can make out the POC spin kick Storm Shadow arms, the belt of the ’08 Comic Pack Firefly, and Med Alert’s shotgun.
I like it a lot, especially the head and removable helmet. Knockdown isn’t my favorite Force member but if the rest of the team follows suit, these will certainly be worth the $$$ for me.
