Welcome to the Outpost. Today I’m looking at a very popular G.I.Joe character who has been a staple character in the cartoon, comics, and figure line. Wild Bill was first introduced in 1983 and came with an awesome vehicle the Dragonfly. Wild Bill had a unique look and came with his signature cavalry hat. Wild Bill was in many episodes and comics where he always came in to help try and save the day.
There have been many versions of Wild Bill and I think every version other then the original came with a removable hat. Many also have revolver pistols that look cool. Some of my favorite versions are 1992 v2, 2004 v10, and 2008 v13 but there are a lot of great looking versions and even the ones that were just new color schemes in an older version looks unique and great. There is a 12 inch Wild Bill but I use the 2008 Capt. Ace as my Wild Bill as it looks like Wild Bill not Ace. I’m not sure if there were copy right issues on the name but I’m happy they put this one out. Wild Bill is an unforgettable character and he ranks up there high on the Joe list. Who loves Wild Bill? Which are your favorite versions? Sound off below and let us know! Make sure to check back for our next discussion.
