As any hardcore G.I. Joe fan knows, this weekend is JoeCon, the annual official convention. Looking through pictures for upcoming products I notice something peculiar about the new Destro which I believe is from the Resolute animation. This version and the Rise of cobra figures have very Nazi-ish look to them.
I find it interesting because while Destro is not a Nazi, customizer, myself included, see Destro as a great base for Captain America's most dreaded enemy, the Red Skull. The hardest part of making the Red Skull is finding a suitable head or making one yourself thanks to the great Nazi-like bodies that Hasbro has created.
Been slowing things down as far as eBay goes but here's the latest batch of purchases. Mr. Luthor and his cohorts Gorilla Grodd and Major Force are part of a 6-pack exclusive set available @Target. Of course I'm sure you're wondering "Well why don't you just get the 6-pack I saw it in the stores?" Well, I would but 1) it's like $30 and 2) I already have the other 3 figures which are Superman, Batman, and Hawkman. So buying them like this was a good deal.
I also got some more Star Wars droids. I don't know why but I like them.
And finally but not least, I'm one step closer to building my Cantina scene with the band!
