G.I. Joe — Wave 12 (pt.1: MOC)

November 12, 2008

Wait a minute, what happened to Wave 11? Well I ordered my case of Wave 11 from the good folks at Big Bad Toy Store (BBTS), but I ordered the Internet Exclusive that comes with two Cobra Eels packed inside. So while I await that creamy goodness which may be due later this month, I received Wave 12. This wave of figures, much like Waves 4 and 8, is comprised of repacks of figures from multipacks, or repaints/redecos of pre-existing molds. So without further ado, Wave 12!

And as a bonus, I did manage to get Zartan from Wave 11 as just a taste of what’s to come.

So, within a month of Wave 9’s release comes Wave 10 of this excellent line. Hasbro keeps offering interesting character selections; here they keep things fresh by including a mix of some fan favorites along with some new characters. What follows will be a review of the figures that came in this wave, with the exception of Tiger Force Duke. **UPDATE** See Tiger Force Duke review at the end of this post.

1) Mutt & Junkyard — K-9 Officer & Attack Dog

  • Head/Forearms/Lower Body — New
  • Torso/Biceps/Waist — Cobra Viper (w7)

One of my favorites from the original line comes back to life with this great likeness. The detail is great, even down to the scar on his face. The only issue I have with this version is that his face mask looks a little too bulky and doesn’t cover his mouth and nose convincingly. It’s a small gripe to this overall excellent figure. ***1/2
