Sideshow's 12" GI Joe - ROCK 'N' ROLL

Time to take a look at the G.I. Joe team's original Machine Gunner, Rock 'n' Roll. Sideshow Collectibles has released their version of this figure, and as usual, he is packed with detail. Now it's my turn to take a look at this blond bearded beach bum bassist!

As always, Sideshow's box reflects the amount of thought and care that goes into all their products. With the magnetic latch holding the box closed, a simple pull is all that's needed to open up and check out the fold-open interior. The beautiful graphics on the exterior and the easily resealable inner compartments mean you won't want to throw this box away. Rock 'n' Roll's filecard is a virtual copy of the 1982 original - only fitting as this figure is clearly inspired by the 1982 version.

Thanks for the Review. i like the pictures...
For the price Sideshow should have done two changes.
1. Give him Cloth boots.
2. real metal ammo belts. (common on. What modern day manufacturer uses plastic ammo belts anymore???)
Click me!!!

For some reason I couldn't view the review on chrome; however, I was able to view the rest of it earlier in the day. Strange.

Re: Sideshow's 12" GI Joe - ROCK 'N' ROLL

I like this version of RnR but for some reason he seems cramped... I don't know what it is, I took the pack off and it is a little better. I am not a fan of seeing ammunition belts around the body (dirt and grime are not friends for the internals on a MG) but I decided to display him in that fashion since he reminds me of the comic version from the 80's.
I hope Sideshow gives us Breaker soon.
