G.I. Joe Collectors’ Club Figure Subscription Service 2.0 Night Force Lt. Falcon Review

G.I. Joe Collectors' Club FSS 2.0 Night Force Lt. Falcon 01

 

Back in 2013, The G.I. Joe Collectors’ Club had offered an exclusive Nocturnal Fire Night Force box set at JoeCon. This release of Lt. Falcon is meant to go with that box set and this is another good example of why the Figure Subscription Service (FSS) works and needs to continue for as long as possible. With G.I. Joe barely showing up at retail, the club is giving fans a life-line to continue collecting these figures as some of these figures might not have gotten a release otherwise.

With Toy Fair coming up and Hasbro’s upcoming G.I. Joe reveals, it will be interesting to see where they take the line from here considering the difficulties that its been having at retail.

Availability: January 2014

Sculpt & Paint:

Lt. Falcon uses the same sculpt as the BigBadToyStore exclusive Slaughter’s Marauders 7-pack (minus the skirt and is given a shoulder harness). The figure somewhat matches the colors of the original 1988 release, but gives him a more modern colors that work better for this particular sculpt. What also should be noted is that this release has the vintage A Real American Hero brown hair, while the Slaughter’s Marauders 7-pack had black hair.

In our pictures the shoulder harness was put on the wrong way by the factory and was not caught in time by our photographer, so you should note that the handgun and belt buckle should be facing the front.

Articulation:

Standard for modern G.I. Joe figures.

Accessories:

Includes removable beret, automatic shotgun, backpack, radio, knife, tactical rifle, and figure stand.

Overall:

Lt. Falcon is an excellent figure and fits in perfectly with other previous released Night Force members.

Highly Recommended.
