Continuing on with their Figure Subscription Service 5.0 reveals, the G.I. Joe Collectors Club has shown their first Photoshop mock up of Darklon tonight. A somewhat more faithful vintage homage than the G.I. Joe Convention version from a few years back, I’m a bit iffy on the Photoshop work here, but generally the end product ends up looking better.
I do like that they’ve gotten the trademark weapon back in circulation, though. Very cool.

Just putting it here to be said again. SO glad we’re getting a more easily available Darklon. That said, I can’t stand the arm choice. The Shipwreck arms to match the torso would be 100% better, both from a design and articulation standpoint.
The JoeCon Darklon looks 100x better than this one…I know it’s closer to the original figure, but the FSS version seriously looks like crap. That said, at least this one will be cheaper…I lucked out and found the JoeCon Darklon for a decent price, but otherwise he goes for insane money these days and the FSS version will be at least a semi-affordable version.
