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 one released at retail.
The Ice Saber is a white with green camo that looks pretty cool. There were also 4 convention exclusives. The Cobra Ferret well looks cool in any color. The Coil Ferret is a really nice looking Ferret and I wish I could find this one. SGT. Slaughter’s Armadillo is another nice repaint. Renegade’s Warthog APV is a really cool repaint. I had the original and this one looks great with the original Slaughter figure.
That wrapped up the 2006 year and anyone wondering what the heck was going on with G.I.Joe soon found out there was going to be a new figure sculpt and shit was about to get real. 2007 had 1 vehicle the Vamp Mark V. This was a really cool looking Vamp. I’m not sure anyone really cared there was only one vehicle because the 25th style figure was about to explode into the spotlight. Who has any of the 2006 or 2007 vehicles? Sound off AFTER THE JUMP and let us know! Make sure to check back for our next discussion.
