The G.I. Joe Collector’s Club dropped today’s FSS 6 preview early. (WAY early.) Feast your eyes on Vorona!
G.I. JOE COVERT OPERATIONS
Code Name: VORONA
(Inspired by former Oktober Guard comic book character!)
Includes: removable harness, knives x 2, pistol, assault rifle,
sub machine gun, backpack, and figure stand.
I have to admit it– this isn’t what II expected and that’s not necessarily a bad thing.A quick bit of history. Vorona made her “code name debut” back during Brandon Jerwa’s run on Devil’s Due Publishing’s G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero title. Daina, the Oktober Guard sniper, essentially left the Russian military and joined up with the Joes, getting a brand new code name and a new uniform. That means that this is the second version of Daina that the Club has produced– the first being part of the 2012 Joe Con set.
The Club was smart in the fact that they retained the head sculpt from the 2012 Daina for their Vorona update. The build is visually solid– utilizing the 2016 Toys R Us Cobra Officer torso. My only concern is that the web harness is going to severely restrict arm movement but the Club has always been more focused on form than function. The FSS 6 Vorona will look good with her weapons but she won’t be striking any truly realistic sniper poses. The Alley Viper legs are an interesting choice.
