Welcome to the Outpost. Today I’m taking a look at a 1984 G.I.Joe character that my brother had and is one of my favorite characters, ‘Ace‘. Ace is the original air support flying of course one of the best jets the Skystriker. The original Ace had a futuristic suit that looks a little more like a space suit but this is a cool look and I’m glad I was able to pick up this original figure.
Ace has had a number of figures including the really cool and more accurate 2004 figure. There are also several modern figures most of which are the same head mold with tweaked bodied, but I love the V1 Captain Ace best. There are a couple 12 inch versions one looks more like Wild Bill so I use him as Wild Bill. There was not a lot of back story on Ace in the cartoon but I do know he was used in the cartoon and comics.
Maybe the comics elaborated on his back story more but I’m not sure. This is one I would love to see in a 6 inch figure but I don’t see it happening soon or at least soon with a vehicle. Overall Ace has been one of my favorite characters over the years and I hope he makes a grand return. Who are my Ace fans? Do you think there could ever be a 6 inch Skystriker? Sound off below and share your thoughts. Make sure to check back for our next discussion.
