I was never in to G.I. Joe – I think it’s more of an American institution, whilst we have Action Man over here in the UK – but this I understand is Destro, the arms dealer in charge of M.A.R.S who supplies COBRA who I know to be the baddies in the Joe universe. The other thing I know is that this figure of him looks damn cool!
It’s not going to be shipping until January / March 2022 so you have a long wait if you want one of these, but they are available to pre-order now from the Mezco Toyz website for $100 a piece.
As you can expect from a One:12 collective figure this 17cm tall figure has 32 points of articulation, has hand painted details, come with a display base and post and is shipped in a collector friendly window box. But of course it also comes with a range of accessories and features:
- 12 interchangeable hands (1 pair of fists, 2 pairs of posing hands, 2 pairs of gun holding hands and 1 pair of briefcase holding hands)
- 3 interchangeable heads
- Removable necklace
- 1 COBRA issued briefcase with a computer compartment, weapons storage and light up features
- a modular sub machine gun with 2 removable magazines
- a pistol with 2 removable magazines
- a group of missiles as well as a missile blast effect which attach to his gauntlet
