Welcome to the Outpost. Today we are taking a look at one of my favorite female Joes, Kim Arashikage or originally known as Jinx. Jinx was an awesome character and introduced in the 1987 G.I.Joe The Movie as one of the new recruits. This was the first female figure I got as a kid. She has some awesome weapons including her signature naginata, 2 swords, and a cool backpack that can hold them.
The red uniform was unique for the year and the character was Sassy and perhaps not as gorgeous as the previous Joe women, but that made her intriguing to me and perhaps more appealing. Jinx has had a few updates over the years including an unmasked version in 2004, 2012, and 2013. An original 1987 figure would look great as an unmasked figure, but I won’t hold my breath, maybe a custom should be in the works. I did do a simple custom modern version of the original Jinx with no hood, and a 12 inch style masked Jinx.
Outside of the movie I don’t remember Jinx used much and I’m not sure about the comics. It looks like Jinx will be a part of the new Snake Eyes movie and I can’t wait to see it. Over all Jinx has always been one of my favorites and I’m always keeping my eyes open for figures. Who loves Jinx? Who can’t wait to see her character in the new Snake Eyes Movie?
