Welcome to the Outpost. 1990 is the last year I received G.I.Joes for Christmas. I had some nice figures but I did not get one cool one, Metal-Head. It wasn’t till many years later when I got back into G.I. Joe that I even knew who Metal Head was. When I got my first original Metal Head this was just a great figure. When I got back into watching the cartoon Metal Head was a very popular character and was used extensively. Although he came off as a bit of a loose cannon and a goofball, this was one cool character.
He did have a couple upgrades including a modern figure that came in an exclusive pack and anyone who has the modern version should feel pretty lucky. The Original character with the side missiles and back pack missiles is my favorite version. I’ll admit I probably don’t bring Metal Head out as much as I should. He just has some cool features and he was an awesome creation. He hung out with Gnawgahyde a lot in the cartoon, but Metal Head looks pretty cool next to Scrape Iron. Together they could do a lot of damage. I don’t see a 6 inch version of Metal Head coming out but I think someday he would be awesome if they did make a 6 inch. Who had a Metal-Head figure as a kid? Who loves this character? Sound off AFTER THE JUMP and let us know. Make sure to check back for our next discussion.
