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.
