Welcome to the Outpost. Over the weekend I was able to get my hands on the new G.I.Joe retro Destro. From what I can tell this is a repacked 2014 figure, so I don’t see what is retro about that other then the packaging he comes in. I’m not complaining about the figure as this is a great looking Destro and I did not buy this back in 2014, just the retro part throws me off.
This figure comes with a cool briefcase and a very cool pistol with a removable scope. Over all I would have to say this is one of the coolest modern style Destro figures released so I’m not complaining, I just hope this leads to some other exclusive figures being released that I could not get such as Dial-Tone, Footloose, and Iceberg.
I also would buy figures I passed on that were packaged in multiples such as Leatherneck and Gung Ho. There is a ton of potential and a relaunch would be easy as Joe fans are hungry for something new. We will see what happens going forward. Who picked up the new retro Destro? Sound off below and let us know AFTER THE JUMP! Make sure to check back for our next discussion.
