Outback's Outpost 'G.I.Joe 2011 Vehicles' By Mitchell Smith!
Welcome to the Outpost. Today we are discussing 2011 G.I.Joe
vehicles. First up are some Ross exclusives that I was never able to get my hands on. The Desert Rockslide A.T.A.V. is a tan version of the original and looks pretty cool, but I don’t see this one being effective in the sand. The Lava Pod is a Mole Pod cool but not much new on it. The Sand Serpent is a tan modern Night Raven. This is a cool version and probably could have been released at regular retail.
The Polar Shark Sub is a cool looking vehicle, I would like to see this one in hand. The Tiger Claw was one I wish I could have found on one of my summer trips to Florida, but I was not successful in finding any of these on my visit to the Ross down there. There were a number of 30th anniversary vehicles. The Black Dragon is a cool plane. I passed on this one but it did look cool when I did. The Crimson Tank is a red version of the 2010 Hiss.
The Sky Striker
was one of my favorite jets from my childhood, so it was a no brainer picking this up, only bad part was 1 seater and no parachute. It’s still pretty awesome though. The Vamp Mark II was released in 2 shades of green. Both are nice versions of the 2010 Vamp. The Collectors club Sea Wolf II is a white version of the 2004 Sting Raider. It’s pretty cool but this is one I would like to see in hand. There were also a number of Convention exclusives released. The Jungle Panther Tank, Python Patrol Stinger, Python Patrol Water Moccasin, and the Starscream Sky Striker
. These are all pretty cool versions of original vehicles. Which is your favorite vehicle from this year? Make sure to check back for our next discussion.
