Welcome to the Outpost. Today I’m checking out a 1990 G.I.Joe figure that doesn’t get much attention. Stretcher is one of those characters that wasn’t used much in the cartoon if at all. I’m not sure but it looks like he may have appeared in the comics but I’m not sure about that either. I did not have Stretcher as a kid so my love started for him as a collector.
There are a lot of colors in his uniform but the figure has a nice look to it. His hat really makes the figure pop and although he came with a hover sled this figure really should have come with a stretcher. It’s literally his name. Maybe a hover stretcher would have been really cool to welcome some futuristic type characters. The 1990 version is the only one made of Stretcher, but I think a modern figure with a removable hat such as Lifeline has would have made an awesome battlefield medic. There is still hope we will get some modern figures of some of the later Joes that got overlooked the first go round. Who thinks stretcher is a cool character that needs a modern figure? Sound off AFTER THE JUMP and let us know. Make sure to check back for our next discussion.
