It's an audacious claim, but I think he just might be. I picked this up yesterday, because I had been thinking about getting one for a while, then they disappeared from stores, so when I saw this at Walmart, I did not know if I would get another chance. I really want to get Firefly too, so hopefully he sticks around, since that same store had several of him as well. It has been an awful long time since I did a GI Joe review, so here goes.
Final Verdict? Hasbro seems to have wrapped everything they have learned in all of their disparate figure lines and done it all correctly on Duke. He has double jointed knees, done right like Marvel Universe. He has good body scaling. He has good accessories that work the way they are supposed to. The only complaint I have here is that the magazine is detachable on the LMG. I would have preferred a hopper or drum mag so I could make more 'bigammo' jokes, but we can't have everything, now can we?
