Welcome to the Outpost. Today Im checking out a character that was used early on in the G.I.Joe Cartoon and is a great Cobra Character, ‘Major Bludd‘. I know he was in the comics as well but I do not know the extent but I’m thinking he is a staple in the comics. Major Bludd was introduced in 1983 and is just a cool looking bad guy.
The eye patch, his mustache, the uniform, and weapons made him unique and was just a popular character. I did not have an original Bludd until a few years ago. The original figure has a unique look to him and his right arm is a solid arm and does not swivel or bend at the elbow. I’m not sure why this is this way but it looks cool. My first Bludd was the 2000 two pack version and I also have several other ones now including all the modern ones. My favorite modern is version 8.
I recently picked up a 12 inch Major Bludd and he looks really cool. 6 inch, this would be an awesome Cobra Character in 6 inch scale. I’m not sure how far they will go with this line though. Over all Major Bludd is a really awesome character. Which is your favorite version of Major Bludd? Sound off AFTER THE JUMP and let us know! Make sure to check back for our next discussion.
