Welcome to the Outpost. Today I’m taking a look at a 2005 G.I.Joe character that would have been really cool to see in an animated series, ‘Bombstrike‘. ‘Bombstrike‘ is a great character with a cool back story. Her one brother became a Joe and the other a Cobra. I find this story intriguing and would love to see it expanded to some degree. I never knew anything about Bombstrike till 2006 when I came across her, packaged with Croc Master, at Big Lots for $5.00.
I was in the infancy stage of collecting and the figures both looked great so I picked them up. There was 12 inch figures made of her brothers but it seems as if she got the stiff arm there, so I worked up a custom that I think looks great. I think it will be years before a 6 inch classified is considered, so I did a custom 6 inch that I think came out pretty nice.
Now I have to try and do her brothers. Overall Bombstrike is a great modern character that definitely has a story there. I hope to see it expanded but that would mean a modern animated series and not sure that is even a thought right now. Who would love to see more Bombstrike and her family story? Make sure to check back for our next discussion.
