 Outback's Outpost 'G.I.Joe Dusty' By Mitchell Smith!
Welcome to the Outpost. Today I’m checking out one of my favorite characters G.I.Joe Dusty. The 1985 Dusty was such a cool figure and I probably passed him up for Shipwreck and Footloose but I’m not sure. I had one shot back in the day and I couldn’t buy them all. Dusty was a solid character in the cartoon and in the comics. Over the years there have been some great upgrades including the the Tiger Force that I did have and still have, the 1991 version with the beret, and one of my favorites I picked up for 5 bucks at Big Lots the 2000 version with the red beret.

I also have the 2008 and 2010 modern versions which are both awesome. Then there is the 2008 12 inch figure that is just pure gold. Dusty is a prime candidate for a 6 inch figure and I hope they can come up with a solution to produce and distribute 6 inch figures effectively. Over all Dusty has always been a favorite of mine and I hope to see him in our future. Which version of Dusty is your favorite? Who hopes we see him soon in the 6 inch line? Sound off below and let us know! Make sure to check back for our next discussion.

Dusty is awesome. 1985 was a good year! As Train mentioned, it was challenging to prioritize! My first Dusty saw so many combat missions, he eventually ended up becoming a parts donor.

Thanks to some transaction with Kal a few years back, I have a replacement Dusty in good shape again. I'll have to check my box, but I think I might still have my original elusive bipod for his gun in my weapons and accessories hardware store organizer form the 1980's. Mostly due to it kept falling off, so I put it in the box for fear of losing it!!

He would definitely be due for a Classified release. Although the POC version was an excellent update with the softgoods and extra head.

If you go to the classified website, Dusty is on their list of possible upcoming releases. However, if they don't release it with 2 hats, his original and the Tan Beret it would be a HUGE mistake.
