Don't let this image fool you, Recondo is really a statesman.

Well, maybe not.

The boycott of the new wave of GI Joe toys continues to go well, as I pick up Recondo and, yes I know, ANOTHER Snake Eyes (but he is the best Snake Eyes ever).

Recondo looks to have it all, but I am a bit disappointed with him. His head lurches too far, and there is little movement, not to mention his hat keeps falling off (and his head). He also seems to have some waist/hip issue thats not straight enough. He comes with a bunch of toys, which look good, but perform clumsy.

His solar powered backpack with Claw-JS Multi-Snare Trap, is hard to believe.

But indeed funny.

This is my first Recondo figure, so I will give credit to that. Otherwise, if you don't really want that Tribal mask, I would say skip him for some of the other options.

Nice one Dan! Jesse Ventura...err....Blain/Recondo never looked this good!Gotta agree with u though, his hunchback head position pisses me off too. He's shortpacked over here in Malaysia, which automatically made him among the harder ones to find. How about in the States?

I just saw this one so far, so we will see if he shows in other stores. So far all the figures are shortpacked.

Oh, he also looks like coach Akey from the Idaho Vandals.
