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
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!
