G.I.Joe Collectors Club Figure Subscription 7 Dusty and Sandstorm Revision Revealed

You asked and the G.I.Joe Collectors Club listened. Many fans were a bit let down by the fact that the modern interpretation of the 1991 Dusty figure being released in FSS 7 didn’t quite look right, namely due to the missing camouflage on his pants. Thanks go to our friends at Just Another G.I.Joe Show for sharing confirmation that the club has revised Dusty and he will feature a new paint deco that makes the figure look that much closer to the original. 

It’s great to hear that the Club will be able to make the change. Hopefully those that were on the fence before have been nudged a bit closer to subbing. What about you? Getting in on FSS 7 or skipping it all together? Join us for discussion already in progress on the Cobra Island Forums!
