Yeah, the headline is corny, deal with it.
As promised, the G.I. Joe Collectors Club revealed their latest 2014 G.I. Joe Convention Exclusive today, and it’s none other than Zombie Hunter TJBang!
I suspected, once some colors were revealed, that this figure might appear in a very classically themed uniform, and it looks like that suspicion is right on the money! I know there have been folks questioning why the Club is apparently combining Ninja Force with E.C.O. Force, and I think we’ll probably get some answers with the Convention comic this year. Regardless, for those 90s lovers like myself this is really awesome.
TJBang now joins the Discount Store Storm Shadow on the Ninja Force roster, and one might wonder if others are close behind. Dice is on the other side of the fence…will we see some other key members in future Figure Subscription Services?
Regardless, check out GIJoeCon.com and the image mirrored below.
A great likeness to the original and an impressive looking figure despite the fact his aesthetic hasn’t aged well. I do question the practicality of his exposed outfit when combating zombies, and his vow of silence seems to be a severe tactical impediment—unless the Club got rid of that. But either way, a cool addition to one’s collection regardless of the set. I personally dislike the bright Crayola colors and cheeky vibe of these kind of characters, but I think he will be well received regardless.
Another winner! I wasn’t sure how they would make him work but I really
like the use of that chest armor and the RoC Storm Shadow gauntlets. Very nicely done.
Haven’t found those gauntlets on any RoC versions of Stormy…herde have you see them?
Nevermind, I found them!
Despite the bright colors, i think this figure is great. The Club is doing an amazing job on those new heads.
