If you haven’t been able to tell by now, The Blot is really excited about G.I. Joe: Retaliation and Hasbro's corresponding Real American Hero scale toy line! Why? Because we’re getting very cool, super articulated 3.75” action figures of actors like Bruce Willis, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and RZA of the Wu-Tang Clan. Yes the RZA is getting his own G.I. Joe action figure! Come on, that’s pretty freaking cool. Who’s next, Method Man?
The only downside to this toy is the head sculpt isn’t as useful for customizing Wu-Tang era RZA figures. Although I’m sure some talented artists are already working on a way around that beard. RZA will be portraying the Blind Master, who in the world of G.I. Joe: Retaliation is one of the Arashikage ninja masters who taught Snake-Eyes, Storm Shadow and his protégé Jinx.
G.I. Joe: Retaliation is scheduled to premier in theaters on June 29, 2012.
