Welcome to the Outpost. Today I’m going with another 1986 G.I.Joe character. Sci-Fi is another figure I received for Christmas in 1986. I loved the green and he came with an awesome pack and laser rifle. Sci-Fi has an upgraded figure in 1991, 93, 94, and a modern 2011 based on the original figure. Sci-Fi is one that I probably love each version more and more.
Version 2 has a nice color scheme and my favorite feature a removable helmet. I wish they had remade the original with a removable helmet, but you can easily put V2 head on V1 body. This looks really good and if you have an extra V2 helmet perhaps you can paint it green to match the V1 uniform. They did give V2 a new color scheme and made it V3 which I love this figure as well. V3 has a bit more space feel to it with a white suit and helmet and I think I love the color scheme of 2 and 3 equally.
It’s kind of like the original Ace and the 1998 grey version, both are awesome in their own respect. V4 is just a really cool Star Brigade figure. I love this version he has a cool suit and awesome removable space helmet. The color may be a bit bright but I think this would have been a cool figure to repaint in the original green. Finally there is the modern update that comes with 2 removable helmets. This figure is pure gold and I’m happy I found him at retail. I think V2 would make an awesome modern figure, but I don’t see that happening any time soon.
Although a 12 inch figure may be very unlikely at this point I think a 6 inch figure should be on the table. I remember Sci-Fi having some minor parts in the cartoon, but I’m not sure about comics. This is one character I would love to see a lot more of. Who loves Sci-Fi? Which is your favorite version? Sound off AFTER THE JUMP and let us know! Make sure to check back for our next discussion.
