GI Joe Renegade Tunnel Rat
I almost got the new Scarlet, since, amazingly, I have never owned a Scarlet, but she was up against long time family favorite: Tunnel Rat. Now old Nicky Lee is my favorite GI Joe, and I pride myself on having owned every version of him released to date (Don't know if I will be buying any hypothetical movie version of him, though). So it was really no contest.
This version comes with a lot of swag, as Tunnel Rat always seems to. The obligatory M60 and revolver are there of course, but this time the classic satchel charge has been replaced by a more modern looking demo charge, as well as an entrenching tool (makes sense for a tunnel rat), bomb disposal robot (yay!), detonator, phone, laptop for controlling the robot, and a flashlight. Let's see, did I forget anything? Well, there is also what's either supposed to be a satellite dish or frying pan, I'll decide once I get all this stuff out of the package and mess around with it.
Expect a more thorough review of the figure itself once I get it all out of the packaging. This has been a pretty busy few weeks in terms of toy finding, so expect to see lots more in the coming days!
