G.I. Joe Collector’s Club Releases New Pics of 2015 12″ Membership Figure, “Doctor Isotope”

Holy, Radioactive! A newly released photo of the GIjCC’s upcoming 12″ membership figure, “Dr. Isotope,” reveals they’ve already made some slight changes in what will be the first-ever, glow-in-the-dark GIjOE. In this image, Doc’s previously blank eyes are now shown as painted-in and his fuzzy “Freddy Mercury” mustache has been removed. Also, what we previously thought to be a two-piece t-shirt and shorts outfit has been simplified to a one-piece, black lycra suit, ala the 1970s Adventure Team hero, “Bulletman.” (Photo: GIjCC)

The GIjOE Collector’s Club has released some tantalizing new images of its upcoming 2015 12-inch membership exclusive figure, “Doctor Isotope.” We’ve liked the concept and execution of this new figure from the moment it was announced (C’mon! He’s going to glow in the DARK!) and now (fortunately) it appears as if the club has made some changes that will make it even better. Gone are Doc’s original blank, blind eyes, giving him back the ability to SEE and cast his evil glare upon hapless victims. Gone too, is that fuzzy “Freddy Mercury” mustache that drew so much criticism.

We originally thought Doc Iso (like so many 12″ club membership figures before him) would be shipped wearing a two-piece black t-shirt and shorts outfit. That misconception has now been clarified and corrected. He will be outfitted instead, in a classic “Bulletman” (1970s style) one-piece stretch design. We have to admit, with that wonderful (glowing?) atomic symbol upon his chest, ol’ Doc’s lycra, retro-modern underwear appears strangely appropriate. Finally, Doc’s amazing accessories (sold separately, ‘natch) REALLY complete this figure. As always though, the buyer should beware, because as the club’s official press release reminds us:

This is a wonderful accessory set for Doctor Isotope. Imagine the custom backing card or coffin boxes you could make for this figure. WOW! (Photo: GIjCC)

Gimme! Gimme! This is a wonderful accessory set for Doctor Isotope. Imagine the custom backing card and/or coffin boxes you could make for this figure. WOW! (Photo: GIjCC) Click to enlarge.

Bottom Line: We look forward to adding Doc Iso to our ever-expanding collection of 12-inch club exclusives. Upgrades and customization of the figure should be no problem, and he cries out for a custom coffin box as well (Hello, Tony Stroud?). Remember the club’s promise: “If you are an active member on March 16, 2015, and choose the 12-inch figure option, you will receive this figure FREE sometime in the late spring or early summer.” So… Check your membership status today! ZzaPPP!
