Sideshow Collectibles’ G.I. Joe line of 12″ figures has been real hit or miss with me. They tend to do better with the Cobras, but their more realistic approach to the Joes are too far a departure from the source material for me to start plunking down and really getting into the line.
That could change with this preview of their newest Joe figure – the helmeted version of Cobra Commander, which Sideshow dubbed “Dictator” version and this looks like a high-level, larger scale version of the 3 3/4″ figure I had as a kid. Sounds like we’ll get a better look at him come June 6 when pre-orders go up. What do you think?
