Two more G.I. Joe FSS 5 figures get the review treatment this week: Darklon & Salvo!
What is this? Could it be? Have the admins publisihed two MORE G.I. Joe FSS 5 reviews this week? You bet your sweet Evader it’s true!!! Fred and Chris are back with a look at the two latest figures to arrive from the G.I. Joe Collector’s Club Figure Subscription Service: Darklon & Salvo!
You’d be hard-pressed to find a more mis-matched parir of characters from the latter half of the A Real American Hero run than these two. One is a distant cousin of Destro whose fashion sense could best be described as “thrift store chic as assembled in a darkened room.” The other is a towering anti-armor trooper whose basic philosophy on firepower is emblazoned on his hand-lettered t-shirt.
So what do our intrepid reviewers think of the G.I. Joe FSS 5 dynamic duo of Darklon and Salvo? Does Darklon improve upon the original 1989 design or is it another faithful club recreation? Does this second build of Salvo better satisfy the expectations of fans? (After all, the first Salvo build went over like 2016 Joe Con JUMP pack souvenir sets.) Heck, does Deadpool return after his glaring omission in the last two reviews?
