Welcome to the Outpost. Hope everyone is having a good summer. Retail stores are finally getting in some new G.I.Joe stock so I know many people are enjoying hunting and finding them out in the wild. There is one Joe that has made a bit of a stink. Version 2 Roadblock in the 6 inch scale. I myself passed on this Joe, but I may pick him up if my Target still has him next go round.
This isn’t a horrible figure I think people have turned their nose up at him for the simple fact that this is a version 2. Why not put out a Stalker, Shipwreck, or the Crimson Twins? I’m not sure who made the call to put out a version 2 but it’s done and it ain’t changing. It looks like like this figure could maybe be turning into Heavy Duty pretty easily and this is why I may grab him.
I have also been looking at other 6 inch lines to try and customize figures. The 6 inch lines as a whole are not priced to sell cheap toys to kids, they are supported by collectors who will buy up everything so Hasbro can justify putting out new characters. I think once people start scooping these up they will see it is a pretty cool figure. Do you plan on adding the new G.I.Joe Classified Cobra Island ‘Roadblock’ to your collection? Let us know AFTER THE JUMP! Make sure to check back for our next discussion.
