New G.I.Joe Retro ‘Destro’ Discussion by Mitchell Smith!

Welcome to the Outpost. Over the weekend I was able to get my hands on the new G.I.Joe retro Destro. From what I can tell this is a repacked 2014 figure, so I don’t see what is retro about that other then the packaging he comes in. I’m not complaining about the figure as this is a great looking Destro and I did not buy this back in 2014, just the retro part throws me off. This figure comes with a cool briefcase and a very cool pistol with a removable scope. Over…

G.I.Joe ‘2006-2007 Vehicles’ Discussion by Mitchell Smith!

Welcome to the Outpost. This week we are discussing G.I.Joe vehicles from 2006 and I’ll lump in 2007 as well. G.I.Joe had made a full come back earlier in the decade and 2006 had come to a slow down only producing 5 vehicles. Although there were still quite a few figures many Joe fans were unsure of the future of G.I. Joe. I know I was finding some of the early 2000 figures at secondary stores and I wasn’t really into collecting vehicles at the time. The first vehicle was a repaint and the only…

G.I.Joe ‘Phantom X-19’ Discussion By Mitchell Smith!

Welcome to the Outpost. Today I’m getting into one of the coolest G.I. Joe jets ever made, the Phantom X-19. Not as recognizable as the original Skystriker, or even the Conquest, as both of these were heavily used in the cartoon especially for the intro scenes, but just as awesome as both of them. Phantom X-19 is still a very cool jet, and holds it’s popularity today. My 2 older brothers were well into their teen years in 1988, the year this was introduced. I was still young enough to get one of…

G.I.Joe ‘Dial-Tone’ Discussion by Mitchell Smith!

Welcome to the Outpost. Today I’m getting into another 1986 G.I.Joe character, ‘Dial-Tone‘. This is another figure my brother had and I was able to get plenty of play time with him. This is a great looking figure. I love his uniform. The black beret was brilliant on this character. Dial-Tone also comes with one of the most unique and most recognizable radio packs. The nice thing about this is the mic was made pretty meaty compared to other character’s mics so this mic is one that normally is still attached if you…

G.I.Joe ‘Mainframe’ Discussion By Mitchell Smith!

Welcome to the Outpost. Today we are talking about the G.I.Joe Team’s first computer specialist, ‘Mainframe‘. Mainframe came on the scene in 1986. Up to this point there were communication specialist such as Breaker and Sparks, but computers even though they had been around for decades, had only started to be made compact in the seventies, and they really didn’t catch on till the eighties. Although there could have been a computer specialist earlier in the franchise I think Mainframe represents the birth of the computer age. My brother got Mainframe that year for…
