Hasbro GI Joe Classified Destro Figure Video/Review

Recommended Posts

Greetings, folks, first time posting in the TNI forums (Thnx, JayC!), just put up my video for Hasbro's new Destro figure from their new GI Joe Classified Series! Feel free to have a look, y'all, it's one sweet-sweet figure! Many-many thanks, my dudes, and stay frosty!

This figure is amazing, this figure really shows how much Hasbro grew as company, sculpt articulation, general engineering is amazing for 20 dollar price point. As mentioned by JustJ, I also wish Hasbro could put so much effort into Marvel legends, maybe create new real replacement for Bucky cap mold, with ball joint waist swivel, butterflies and hidden pegs, that would be amazing for future of ML. If we got back to Destro I guess only flaw is holster that looks out of place and really toyish, if i get this figure I am definitely cutting that red holster.

Where did you get the props, like the arcade game and Coke machine? They look great! The GI Joe figures look awesome, I really hope this line does well.

The Coke machine is actually a radio! Got it on eBay! Arcade was made by @prime2da1st on Instagram!

Agreed 100%...especially the facial expression they worked into what could be a simple mask... It's remarkable what sculpting technology can do these days. Hasbro is really putting their best foot forward with this line and the results bear that out. Similar to the Black Widow line though, I'm puzzled why sometimes they simply slather an object exclusively one color...e.g. his all-red holster or how the movie ML Yelena figure is basically green and white with smattering of black.... it's odd, as clearly they can achieve paint nuance. Still, when you see figures at their best, Destro and Scarlett are so far the tops of the line to me, it's wonderful craftsmanship.

Destro is probably the best figure in the first wave IMO. I like them all but some of them have weak weapon choices. Destro is near perfect and would love to see like a SDCC exclusive version with the chrome headsculpt.

I think like many others out there Im not completely sold on the modernized costumes but overall from when they first revealed the figures to now that ive seen several reviews Im warming up to these figures regardless of me wishing they went with a more classic look to the designs (I dont mind a little modernization but Id rather it wasnt so obvious, at least with Scarlett)

Dude...this Destro is sooooooo cool.  I only collect the vintage figures but seeing this Destro makes me want to get it, open it and display it beautifully near my figures!
