Destro = Nazi?!?!

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.
