G.I.Joe ‘Tiger Force’ Discussion By Mitchell Smith!

Welcome to the Outpost. Today I’m getting into the 1988 G.I.Joe Tiger Force sub team figures. I always loved the Tiger Force and I had 2 as a kid. Even though the yellow vehicles are too bright for some peoples liking, this was one of my favorite lines as a kid and still holds today. I had a Tiger Fly and a Tiger Paw as a kid and I loved them both. The 1988 lineup was pretty cool including the Tiger Fly pilot Recondo who is really nice, Frostbite, and hard to find at a reasonable price Skystriker who is named after the classic original G.I. Joe jet and came with the Tiger Rat of which my brother in law had at some point because I found the engine cover in a box of He-Man figures of his but the rest of the jet is gone.

This was a neat and cost effective way to bring back some early figures with a new look such as Duke, Roadblock, and Tripwire. There were also some newer character reused like Bazooka, Flint, and Lifeline. Last but not least was the only single carded figure I had as a kid Dusty. I was very grateful for this one because Dusty was one of my favorite characters and I did not have the original figure. I do still have the Dusty head but I think my brothers blew the rest of him up. Over all this is a really nice line up and the colors look really cool on these figures. I would love to see some modern Tiger Force figures released to retail for the average Joes. Did you have any TF figures as a kid? Which character would you like to see released in the modern mold? Sound off below and let us know! Make sure to check back for our next discussion.
