The G.I. Joe brand has been a pioneer of boys action figures since the '60s. From the innovation of the Kung-Fu Grip in the '70s, the o-ring torsos of the '80s, to the inset joints of the 25th Anniversary-style bodies, G.I. Joe is synonymous with articulation and poseability. Unfortunately, the consistently uniform articulation we've come to expect from each G.I. Joe figure has--for the first time--been sacrificed in the G.I. Joe: Retaliation movie line. The changes have left many of us confused, not to mention disappointed. To provide you with a comprehensive look illustrating the differences between each figure, we've created an articulation guide for the first wave of basic figures in the Retaliation line. The guide offers a hi-resolution snapshot of each figure, its accessories (sans spring-loaded accessories) and its individual points of articulation.
Our luck hasn't been very good when it comes to Dollar General's line of G.I. Joe figures. We love the card art, think the characters look pretty good aesthetically and would love to get our hands on them, but our efforts to track them down have been fruitless, thus far. Thankfully, there's Pixel Dan to the rescue with a review of the Dollar General Storm Shadow figure. Based on the 1992 Ninja Force version of Storm Shadow, Dan helps you decide if Storm Shadow is worth adding to your collection...if you can find him, that is.
