G.I. Joe Retaliation Joe Colton

Who is Joe Colton? Was the question asked to me by Hobgoblin of the Monster Café recently and my answer to him was simple….He is the original G.I. Joe.

When I saw Bruce Willis was going to be in the G.I. Joe Retaliation film I was excited and my excitement grew when I discovered the fact he was set to play G.I. Joe himself….the man that inspired a team of the same name.

My mind raced with the thought of having a action figure of Willis/Colton and when I saw the preview pictures of him online I kept thinking “Die Hard”.

Well finally the new movie Joes have showed up in my area and the first one I went looking for was this one and I grabbed him as quick as I saw him from the pegs.

I will say right now I really like this figure as being a fan of G.I. Joe and Bruce Willis this was a melding of worlds for me as I can say have both a action figure now of Colton and the “Dynamite Cop” John McClane.

The figure looks great and bares a good likeness of the actor and comes with the normal mix of weapons including a missile launcher recycled from the Retaliation Duke and really is something I could care less about.

Just a great action figure for the new movie line-up and really who better to lead my team of  “Joes” into battle than the original “Joe” himself.

I have to end this blog post by simply saying…..”Yippee-Ki-Yay, Cobra.”
