And this just might be a figure that is better than his previous version. Far, far better.
Charbroil was always somewhat of a second rate Blowtorch in my opinion, and even though his Night Force version did add some nice credibility to the character (I really hated the brown, yellow, and silver look) he still wasn’t really high on my list of knock out characters. Of course, appearing in the same assortment as Hit & Run, one might expect he got a little overshadowed.
The Collectors Club has revealed their version of Night Force Charbroil now, and it is pretty nice. Using what appears to be the G.I. Joe: Retaliation Joe Trooper body from neck to toe (which I have ZERO issues with, as demonstrated by my Best Toys of 2012 article), he’s got a newly tooled helmet and backpack and even without a ton of detail work, the figure looks really nice. Love the combination of gray and blue here.
