G.I. Joe Retaliation Ultimate-Cobra Commander

I wasn’t planning on adding this one to the collection but did anyways and C.C. has grown on me.I needed a hooded version anyways so what the heck.Oddly,though,this particular figure has a troublesome right arm joint that hinders full 360 degree movement,a problem I’ve never encountered before with any other action figure.

G.I. Joe Retaliation-Kwinn(loose)

Very cool figure.The Kwinn character screams bad ass and the correlation between he and  Snake Eyes  is a huge plus.The sculpt and color scheme effectively capture the essence and likeness of everybody’s(well..not so much mine as I only have dated memories of Kwinn from issue 2) favorite  mercenary for hire and the accessories rock.But there’s a problem.He’s dead!I know it’s only an action figure but the fact that Kwinn dies in a later issue of G.I. Joe bugs the crap out of me!Think of the missions he and Snake Eyes could have gone on!Kwinn has to make a movie appearance and if he dies in it,then they have to do something to bring him back.Ala Captain America,in the form of a spirit,cyborg,i don’t know.JUST BRING HIM BACK!iT BUGS ME TO HAVE SUCH A COOL FIGURE OF A CHARACTER THAT’S DEAD!Now that I got that off my chest,enjoy the pics!

G.I. Joe Retaliation (Ultimate) Wave 3.5

Finally this much anticipated wave of Joes is  hitting Ebay and other online toy stores everywhere,available for purchase!I’m not sure when they will be hitting store shelves so i opted to snag one up online and wait until the others arrive locally.I’m a little bummed about the Snake Eyes figure as i’ve seen in-hand reviews of him sporting the Retaliation Ninja Duel head sculpt instead of a more cartoon accurate version.As much as i love SE I might pass on this figure.Lovin’ the other figures,though.
