Now here’s something you don’t see every day! Thanks go to our good friend [url=http://news.hisstank.com/2015/05/06/g-i-joe-movie-rise-of-cobra-poc-ripcord-unreleased-card-54070]DESTRO[/url] for pointing out this rare G.I.Joe Rise of Cobra unreleased carded Desert Battle Ripcord on eBay!
The wave that included this version of Ripcord never made it to retail before the conversion over to G.I.Joe Pursuit of Cobra. As such, Ripcord was repainted, given a different head and renamed Skydive. Although a few of these pieces appeared on eBay for some time, they were loose and complete, not carded as this example is.
