Welcome to the Outpost. Today I’m getting into one of my favorite G.I.Joe figures from 1986, Leatherneck. Leatherneck was one I had as a kid. Hung Ho was always the Marine and Leatherneck came in and took over gracefully. I’ve always loved the look of the original figure and him and Wet-Suit had a perfect love hate relationship. There have been a handful of Leatherneck versions but the original is my favorite followed by the 2014 version which I was recently able to acquire.
Great character, awesome figure and I hope he makes the 6 inch classified list. I don’t think there was ever a 12 inch version but I still hold hope that line will make a comeback, but probably not any time soon. Who loves Leatherneck? Which versions do you have of this figure? Sound off below and let us know your opinions on the G.I.Joe character, ‘Leatherneck’. And make sure to check back for our next discussion.
