G.I. Joe Collectors’ Club Figure Subscription Service 3.0 Crimson Guard Immortal Review

G.I. Joe Collectors' Club Figure Subscription Service 3.0 Crimson Guard Immortal 01

The G.I. Joe Collectors’ Club shipped out the last wave of The Figure Subscription Service 3.0 consisting of Big Ben and Crimson Guard Immortal. Also shipped was the 13th free figure exclusive, Frostbite, available to those if you purchased all previous figures.

Availability: May 2015

Sculpt & Paint:

Crimson Guard Immortal is based on the 1991 figure and updated using modern G.I. Joe 25th Anniversary style. He features a new head sculpt and reused parts from existing G.I. Joe figures. The figure is also from the Hasbro Concept Case shown at G.I. JoeCon 2013.

His head sculpt is a nice update to the original figure with a non-removable helmet, goggles, and face plate. One aspect that we immediately noticed about the figure is that his pants are painted in a darker red compared to the arms and helmet. Rather we wish it was more consistent, it’s not entirely noticeable if you take a few steps back.

While the parts used are terrific especially the longer arms and Retaliation Snake Eyes legs, the vest and gauntlets are painted grey and silver respectively. That also should be more consistent and painted silver as it would have better served the figure. He also has a Cobra logo at his forehead and on his arms.

Articulation:

Standard for modern G.I. Joe figures.

Accessories:

G.I. Joe Figure Stand, Assault Rifle, Removable Combat Vest, Dual Launcher with Rockets, Crimson Guard Flag.

The Crimson Guard Flag does not connect to the figure stand (this would have been an ideal scenario as the tooling exists from a previous Duke figure).

Overall:

Crimson Guard Immortal is an excellent update to the vintage figure and features a great sculpt, deco, and accessories.

Aside from the few tweaks that we wish the figure had, we also would have liked it if he was offered as a 3-pack for army building purposes, or offered outside the subscription in a multi-pack as the character is of interest to most G.I. Joe collectors to army build.

Highly Recommended.
