Nerd News: One:12 Collective G.I. Joe Destro by Mezco Toyz

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

I'm a collector of pop culture items, with by far my biggest collection being in excess of 1,200 DVDs (yeah I still stay old school - can't wrap my head around the whole streaming thing yet), as well as various figures and Memorabilia (with most of these being McFarlane Walking Dead 5 inch figures, Funko Pop and Funko Pint Size Heroes, with a few other exceptions too). I'm a massive nerd and giant child at heart so feel free to have a chat about anything toy and movie related. My biggest movie passions are horror by far (especially slasher and zombie), sci fi and to a lesser extent action and comedy.
