It’s another Figure Subscription Service review– this team featuring Cobra Sniper Black Out!!!
Black Out debuted in 2003 as part of the Spy Troops series of G.I. Joe figures and immediately grabbed the attention of fans because of his compelling file card story. He was the dark counterpart to the G.I. Joe team’s own Barrel Roll– the “bad brother” who went over the forces of Cobra and was implicated in the disappearance of his own sister. It’s the kind of plotting that would make for an interesting movie and another shining example of the importance of file cards in the G.I. Joe line. Thanks to the G.I. Joe Collector’s Club, Black Out was made available to those who signed up for the first Figure Subscription Service as the mystery 13th figure and shipped at the same time as his brother Barrel Roll!
Does the Black Out figure measure up to the standards of the Figure Subscription Service? Is he up to the task of carrying out his feud with Barrel Roll in collections everywhere? Check out the review in the Collector’s Club Review Index and find out one Joe fan’s opinion!
