I've started a GIJoe video review series


Recommended Posts

Just wanted to say that I enjoyed your Sgt. Slaughter May Main Character Month for 2021.  Was kind of surprised though that you didn't mention some of the more modern stuff, similar to the pervious ones like Duke, Zartan, and Sepentor.  Like the like the various Slaughter Convention Exclusives, and making a quick mention that Jakks Pacific and Mattel made a few 6" as well(Should point out that Jakks also made one 4" figure as well). 


Of course, if you don't have any of those, then that's understandable, especially the aftermarket prices of some of those figures.  But was kind of expecting something along the lines of you saying "Yes, I know they Hasbro made a few Convention Exclusives, and both Jakks and Mattel made some figures too, but... I won't be covering any of those because <Insert whatever reason you have>."


In the end of course, I just mostly chalk it up as you just focusing the 3 Joes and 1 WWF figures that came out during the 1980's-early 1990's when Slaughter was with Joe Brand during the original line.


In regards to the removable hat for Slaughter that came with the Warhog, because the hat was a bit thick due to being removable, you could always look at it more like a helment shaped like his hat specifically for the Srage, especially to provide some head protection when driving the Warhog or firing the missles.  I don't have the Warhog or this Slaugther, but I would have to say it's probably one of the versions of the character I really like, since it looks more "Battle Ready" than others, and the removable hat.  If Slaughter was still with the Joe line during when the Battle Corps figures were release, I'm sure the Warhog version would of been the figure they would of used for the line.


And even if you are not a fan of the Slaughter's Marauders version due to the colours, I have to admit, after seeing it in person a few years ago at a small convention, I kind of like this version, but mind you, I like the colour Blue as well.  Does work in a "Toycentric" way to me.  Having said that, I do think the Blue for the Marauders would of worked better for most collectors if the Blue was more neutral or Navy colour, instead of the more brighter "Electric Blue" they used.


Yeah, after finding out that he was never in the U.S. Army(When I saw HCC788's look at Slaughter a while back), I was really surprised by that.  Even if he never got to the rank of Sgt., I would of assume he was at least been a private with some training, and was only in the Army for a short while before leaving for whatever reason.  I guess it goes to show how good of a character he was, and how he was playing the Srage in both WWF and G.I. Joe help provide that image of him really being from the Army.


Over all, good work and keep it up.  Will look forward to next year's May Main Character month.
