When I got home from work today I found my GI Joe Collectors Club member's exclusive figure in the mailbox. This year's figure is Iceberg. This is the third year in a row where the club has made a 25th Anniversary style figure of one of the vintage figures that was never produced in the Anniversary line. Previously whey released Dial-Tone and Footloose. While Iceberg is alright, I'm not as happy with him as the past two. His head sculpt is perfect, but his body is a little weird to me. The Snow Serpent fur collar is kind of bulky. It makes his shoulders look huge compared to his waist. It's not as obvious in the pictures, but in person his hips are kind of funky. His legs stick out far from his waist and he doesn't stand very well.
While his uniform is modeled after Iceberg V1 his accessories have a lot of nods to V2. The original Iceberg only came with one very long barreled white rifle. The second release of the character came with a snow board, a spring loaded missile launcher, and couple of guns, and a couple of knives.
Collector's Club Iceberg came with a file card, snow board, missile launcher, missile, knife, two guns, a two piece backpack, and a figure stand. The backpack when clipped together can hold the snow board and missile launcher. Iceberg has a working sheath on his leg for the knife.
Pretty neat Kevin congrats on him and did you upgrade you subscription so you can get all of those other Joe Club exclusives? There are a few I really would love to have like Cesspool,Skullbuster,Toolbooth and the Tiger Force Air-Tight and Shipwreck.ReplyDelete
Yeah, I got the subscription last year... and I ordered it again this year. I was hoping to see who the "13th" mystery figure was from year one before I had to order year 2. It didn't happen. I'm conflicted because I really want about half of them. The others are okay, but at $30+ for a figure they need to be pretty awesome. I can get a MOTUC figure for that price and they are much larger.Delete
Yeah they are pricey I might end up sucking it up and getting that Cesspool online off of Ebay or somewhere. I saw a IronClaw figure at BBTS.Com I would love to have too.Delete
He looks cool Buzz.I almost signed up for the Dial Tone figure but couldn't justify paying 40 bucks for a figure and a magazine.How are those mags that come with the subs. anyways?Maybe one day you could feature one in a post?ReplyDelete
Maybe one day if the Dinar comes true...ReplyDelete
