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?
Sorry for the lack of posts.I’v been kind of down lately and actually starting to annoy myself with these toy posts if that makes any sense.Maybe the rolling rock that was toy collecting is beginning to loose it’s momentum.Who knows.I will however go over some of the cool items that I’ve acquired via trade from fellow bloggers John over at The Clawful Punch and Buzz from Action Figure Adventures.This figure came over from jboypacman’s “clawful” of cool ass figures!I gotta tell ya i’m digging this version of Scarlett more than I thought I would.Initially this was going to be given to my daughter who absolutely loved Scarlett in the ROC film,but apparently the green and yellow get up didn’t appeal to her.She’s a purist,what can I say.So Ninja Force Scarlett ,which btw is so friggin’ cool to say,sits in a baggie with the rest of my Joe stash awaiting proper display 😉 YOJOE MO’FO!
I’m really not in the mood to write anything today so here are the pics.
I’ve really been wanting an 80’s style Scarlett and Hawk figure and this comic pack allowed me to kill two birds with one stone.I really love the face sculpts on these figures and their uniforms are exact representations of the 80’s vintage line with a little more detail.I wasn’t too thrilled with Scarlett’s weapon as it did not fit snugly in her hands and kept falling out every time i changed her pose,all in all a great figure though. The cool thing about this set is the inclusion of the comic book which is a reprint of the original 80’s comic book issue #1.This is where it all started ladies and gentlemen(as far as the 80’s A.R.A.H. line goes) and those who missed the boat the first time around have a chance to brush up on their Joe origins with this cool reprint!A less than mint copy of an original G.I. Joe #1 will run you anywhere from 10 to 15 bucks and for that price you could have a neat reprint w/alt. cover art and two figures of characters who play major roles in the Joe universe.The set also comes with file cards for both figures and i must say that after buying so many 80’s Joes on-line with warped and wrinkled file cards it was nice to get two crisp and clean-cut ones for a change.I have set for myself somewhat of a side-goal if you will to complete the original Joe team by mixing and matching some of my ROC figs with the 25th Ann. line.I now have Hawk and Scarlett along with my ROC Flash and Snake Eyes figure and will need Stalker,Zap Melendez,Breaker and Rock & Roll to complete the original team.Wish me luck!
Well my first X-Mas gift arrived today!I’ll take more pics once i get these guys(& gal) out of the package ;)For now here they are carded!
