Here is the third figure reveal from the GI Joe Convention set. The Slaughter Marauders team gets an addition to the unit with Mutt & Junkyard. Mutt looks great even though he looks like a repaint from his earlier release. The deco looks good and appears to match up with his ’89 Marauders version. I have always liked Mutt & Junkyard so I am happy to see him included in the set. I think when all the figures are revealed it’s going to be a great looking set. I was fully in on Slaughters Marauders as a kid so I am in full nostalgia with the release of the set and lets be honest who doesn’t like a figure that comes with a K-9 companion. Keep checking back as we post the rest of the figures as they are revealed and keep checking out the GI Joe Convention page for more details.
MILITARY POLICE & K-9: MUTT & JUNKYARD
– 25th Anniversary Style/Fully Poseable Action Figure.
– Modern Era Release of Character based on 1989 SM design.
– Includes removable helmet, muzzle, vest, submachine gun, baton, knife, dog leash, and G.I. Joe Logo Stand.
The same critiques of the 25th release this figure will have. But are the critiques worse for a premium repaint of a $10 retail release? Plus it looks like they swapped his sub-machine gun holster for a knife holster from another figure. Slight change. I still like the figure but a modern update would be more palatible for the extra cost we have to pay…
You’d think they would’ve at least gone with Junkyard II instead of a straight re-release of 25th Junkyard.
Well, I mean, you might think that if you remember when they used to try doing somewhat original takes instead of just trying to recreate the originals in a different construction model.
