G.I. Joe POC – Low-Light (Revisited)

I’m not sure if this qualifies as a “Revisited” post ,because I don’t think I’ve ever spotlighted this figure before. Low-Light has appeared in various collection pics here on AF&T ,but never got his own post with corresponding pics. That is until last night, when I was bored out of my mind and decided to spend some QT with this awesome Pursuit of Cobra G.I. Joe action figure.I guess I never got around to Low-Light because of the over exposure this figure received over the net and in toy blogs everywhere, so me doing a post on him back then would have felt a little redundant. This will subsequently be a pic heavy post so I can finally “high-light” … Low-Light?

G.I. Joe POC-Cobra Commander

I’m hooked on the Pursuit of Cobra line all over again.I almost forgot how much fun it is to rip open  action figure packaging that has actual contents inside and not just some old solitary action figure.The POC line of G.I. Joe figures does a great job at pushing those nostalgic buttons that bring us back to a time when action figures came with a myriad of accessories and fold out inserts!Those inserts with action pics of other figures available from the line  were what fueled our desire to save up our pennies in order to  fulfill that elusive dream of  one day owning the entire collection.As far as accessories go,they defined the figure they came packaged with.I mean what was Storm Shadow without his bow and arrow back-pack.Snake Eyes without Timber.Zartan without his mask disguise and Bazooka without his…..well…his bazooka.Hasbro definitely hit the mark with the Pursuit of Cobra line of figures.

G.I. Joe POC – Snake Eyes w/Timber (Desert Battle)

This is the figure that started it all for me.Prior to acquiring  Desert Battle Snake Eyes,i had only collected vintage joes.I must say that when this baby arrived i was hooked.Vintage Joes took a back  seat to the articulation/accessory laden POC figures.While i liked  the action feature on Timber,i really didn’t dig his overall appearance.I still preferred the vintage Timber over this newer version,even with it’s lack of  paint apps and simple sculpt.

G.I. Joe POC -Conrad “Duke” Hauser v.43 (Team Commander)

According to YoeJoe.com there are 48 versions of  G.I.Joe’s 1rst  Seargeant Duke.This is v.43.This one had the disadvantage of being released in a line of  superbly sculpted and designed POC figures,and because of that was shrugged off by many a collector.After all,you weren’t going to pass up a Ninja Commando Snake Eyes or  Shock Trooper to pick up this less than stellar version of Duke.But now that all the pretty girls have left the party so-to-speak,this one doesn’t look so bad ;)I found this straggler a while back in the clearance bin and paid about 3 bucks for it.I really like the stearn look on the head sculpt and while the overall look of the figure is a bit plain,militarily it works. This Duke figure has the look of a “Team Commander” and really looks nice when placed in front of a group of other Joe’s.Needless to say,the accessories are abundant with this one and really pack a punch.Ya gotta wonder if  Tony Stark had anything to do with those shoulder mounted cannons this version of Duke sports.
