There’s not a lot of surprises here, but at least the club has finally confirmed the figure will come with a helmet. Overall, he’s pretty cool looking, though not necessarily ground-breaking (unless his ‘chute doesn’t open—HA). According to the club’s official description:

“This is the reproduction 12-inch 1969 Adventurer stripped of his long box gear and redressed in ONE of the uniforms sets included in the larger outer box that holds the entire 12-inch convention set. FANTASTIC FREEFALL is one of the most iconic accessory sets made for 12” G.I. Joe! It is featured on the art for 1969 Adventurer’s “red top” long box and comes with:

Gold pilot helmet with visor and oxygen mask 
Orange flight suit 
Yellow Mae West vest 
Parachute 
Parachute pack 
Signal light 
Flashlight
Tall black boots”

Bottom Line: Yes, you can easily recreate most of this with items from your “spare parts” bin. Yes, it comes with 2 nifty repro boxes. Yes, you’re essentially paying $340 or $410 for those two nifty repro boxes. Yes, we’re still on the fence about whether to buy one, too. Stay tuned for more pics!

    Wow. Really underwhelmed. Maybe if they included a giant clam or tarantula it might be worth two hundred bucks…

    Seriously? Hasbro dumps the Anniversary and this is the best the Club can come up with? This is one of the reasons I haven’t re-subscribed in several years. Nothing new to catch my enthusiasm…

    Same exact outfit available at Cots for less than $50.

    To quote Emperor Nero from Mel Brooks’ History of the World, Pt. I: “Nice, not thrilling, but nice.”.

    As of right now, nothing to see here. Move along.

  6. It’s a nice set but nothing we don’t already have. Not worth the $$ they are asking for it. Might have been cool if they had done it in some different colors or something. And I am in the camp that wants a vintage head on the SA body.

    • AMEN on the vintage head on an SA body. It’s time to leave the old nose-picking hard hands and non-sitting hips in the past. At the very least, every 12″ club figure from here on out should be SA body. I’m fine with mixing up the headsculpt offerings.

  7. I got mine ten years or so ago, with g-suit and talking mechanism included for around $25 in the Timeless Collection III. Pass.
