G.I.JOE Retaliation Conrad "Duke" Hauser (Ultimate)

One more G.I.Joe figure for you. This time it's Duke.

This figure is what Duke deserves to get and not the odd suit, brightly coloured with gimmick weaponry thing that was released in the line previously. The figure looks fantastic. The head sculpt is an improvement from the Rise of Cobra sculpt but something is still off. I think his face is a little too sharp. The skin tone of his face is darker than his neck. There's great sculpted detail on his uniform and vest. There's various straps, layers and pouches The vest is removable by the way. The paint detail is excellent too. The pixel pattern on the uniform was very well done. All that nice work and yet the knee guards can be half painted...

He comes with a lot of accessories. The Punisher would kill to get some of these. There's a helmet, an alternate head, a pistol, two knives, a rocket launcher, eight different assault weapons, the aerial attack drone and a base. I would have liked if they came in black. But I guess they match his uniform. The pistol can be carried in the holster on his right leg and the small knife in the sheath on the back of his vest.

The aerial drone is similar to the one that comes with the Retaliation Data Viper. The wings can extend out for when in flight. The guns are removable but then you'll have holes in the wings. The American flag and some markings can be found on the main body. They were painted on very well. 

Articulation. There's a ball joint neck, ball hinge shoulders, swivel hinge elbows, vertical hinge and swivel right wrist, lateral hinge and swivel left wrist, torso pivot, ball hips, double jointed knees and ankle hinge and pivot.

Comparison shots.

This is a great figure for the movie collection. Now hopefully Hasbro will update the RAH Duke. Thanks for viewing!
