Hasbro G.I. Joe Classified Series Retro 6″ Recondo Figure Review

 

 

Hasbro’s latest wave of G.I. Joe Classified figures is a strong one, and includes Quick Kick, Techno-Viper, Big Boa, Franklin Airborne Talltree, as well as Retro carded Duke, Recondo, and Scarlett. Duke is inspired from his 1984 figure offered in O-ring sytyle, and is offered in 6″ scale and for the first-time, he is solely based on his vintage figure in this scale, and not something different compared to what Hasbro had offered earlier on in this line for Duke.

The Retro part of the G.I. Joe Classified line is solely inspired from the vintage line of the 1980’s, and you’ll be getting figures on his cardback in retro toy deco and accessories. The window box offerings will also have inspiration of the vintage line, however, there will be some updates to the characters to modernize them a bit when needed (ex: head sculpt, armor, accessories, etc.).

The machete is painted in a metallic silver blasé and a green handle, and the pistol is small, green and has a hole where a bullet would be shot out.

He is fully articulated and includes a ball jointed head and neck, butterfly shoulders, ball hinged shoulders, swivel biceps, double-hinged elbows, swivel-hinged wrists, ab crunch, waist rotation, ball joined hips, swivel thighs, double-hinged knees, hinged and rocker ankles.

Overall, Recondo is a great figure and defiantly one that fans want to add to their collection. Recondo is a great choice especially if you remember the days of o-ring figures in the 1980’s and 1990’s. Make sure to pick him up and other G.I. Joe Classified figures now at Entertainment Earth.
