Unlike many other G.I. Joe fans out there, I was drawn to this 12″ Destro the first minute I saw it. The great modern touches and terrific vintage throwbacks seemed to create the perfect combination for this Sideshow update. Granted, it was nowhere near 100% vintage accurate, but I’m one of those folks who doesn’t need that sort of stuff to enjoy a figure.
All in all, as much as I was looking forward to the figure, the end result matched every single expectation I had.
