Hmm... Is he just now wearing the jacket? I like the face sculpt although he looks a little squinty.

Going to cancel the regular viper preorder I have, didn't know Hawk was going to come out this soon. Looks good so far.

I Guess this could work for his original appearance. Although his gear should be Silver and he'd need his nifty GI Joe sweater.

That face-sculpt is awesome.

They must've realized the Joe faces were definitely lacking and upped the bar starting with Stalker.

Looks good. I like the old school OD green. I wonder if the pic is just sans jacket, or if some have suggested, it's the exclusive?

I was kind of hoping for an old school blonde Hawk sculpt for the exclusive. Or maybe an older rifle. Like an M16A2 w/203, or M14.

Then again, he's an officer, so for me he really wouldn't even need a rifle. Either way, so far, so good! I like him better then the Viper.

COME ON!!!! Stalker, Dusty, Viper, now Hawk. Im going to need a divorce Lawyer soon after she finds out that I ordered ANOTHER one...LOL. So far I like the looks of him, but I do hope he has jacket as well. Well done Sideshow....so far.

All this, he may be my favorite Joe yet next to Stalker.
If they made the original 13 it would be epic.

Who needs Duke when you have Hawk?

The Jinx/Chameleon aspect of the Cobra book I wasnt too thrilled about....Id much rather see 1 of the big 3 females (Scarlett, Jaye or Cover Girl) before I see Chameleon.

Oh, no doubt. I would atleast say Scarlett, Jaye, and Baroness. As far as the Jinx/Chameleon aspect, I was actually refering to how Erica took over the codename. I'd love to see her version of Chameleon, and Chuckles. However, there are a TON of characters that should be done first. I guess it all depends on how long the line runs.

I've still got a way to go before I start worrying about getting Joes, but Hawk might just make the list. It's going to be close between him and Duke for who runs my squad. So far the only Joes I'm DEFINITELY getting are Beachhead, Stalker, and Dusty.

Duke's head was perfect. It was one of the few times that he was portrayed as a grizzled old vet rather then a pretty boy, and I liked that.

Really, only the Marvel/DDP version of Hawk had blonde hair. IDWs has Brown. Out of the 19 figures, only 6 had blonde hair.

Duke's head was perfect. It was one of the few times that he was portrayed as a grizzled old vet rather then a pretty boy, and I liked that.It's the only time Duke is portrayed as grizzled and old. That's because he's not. And what war is he a veteran of? He worked with southeast asian anti-communists, but was he ever really a soldier in the war. I'm thinking he got there when all the real fighting was over and just said he did more than what he really did (like GW). He just bought his way into GIJoe command by being white/blonde. White/Blonde is all you needed to lead a toyline in the 80's. Ask Hawk or He-Man and thank Luke Skywalker.

I have ALL the joes in Hand...and every Sculpt (including Flint) are Great and just as good as Hawk'sDon't get me wrong. I'm not saying all the head sculpts aren't great, they just don't always portray the character they represent all that well.

Wow, Sideshow announced a new Joe figure! The Greenshirt! (based on that new pic)

Hawk IMHO is blonde (Marvel and v1 figure). And if Sideshow uses the jacket, helmet and pants from that preview picture (Viper faceshield) then I'm cool with it.

I will second the motion that the Exclusive version comes with a 2nd head with blonde hair.

More likely Duke did more work by the time he made E-5 then Hawk did in his entire career. IIRC, Duke is SF just like many of the other Joes. So "working in South East Asia with anti-communists" likely means going deep cover, organizing and training a resistance. So I'm sure Duke did his fair share. People have different roles to play in wars. So is it that you hate special forces operators, white people, or blondes? Or just all the above?

He does come with his jacket and his helmet with the goggles on it, back around december sideshow had this 12 days of sideshow and they showed a couple photes with like 3 of the new charactors, the photes revealed all 3 of the newest 12" figures along with the background being there newest envorment. They revealed Stalker, The cobra viper, and general hawk, check thier archives.

Wow! so much misinformation
there is NO Grunt and never was...the character behind Hawk in the sneak video is Hawk without the jacket.

Also, there is no Desert Officer either...only one Desert Trooper will be issued (if you want an officer version,borrow the regular red mask like Sideshow did)

and they just showed Zartan in a Sneak video that show much more than just a head sculpt...wow your so behind-see here

People have different roles to play in wars. So is it that you hate special forces operators, white people, or blondes? Or just all the above?Duke shouldn't be portrayed as grizzled. Historically, he was added to the toyline to be the public friendly "face". The same reason he was elevated to such a high status when he got there. Good thing he had the right "background" to do so much. The word 'grizzled' usually implies being old and tough. That was never Duke's bag and his fig shouldn't, and that's why rarely portrayed it. He should just be the pretty face.

Now, do I hate special forces operators; Of the very few that I know- No. Most seem pretty cool. Do I hate white people; It'd be hard trying to live a happily if that were the case. What would I do about the one that's always calling, hanging around, and sleeping over? Good thing I like her at least because if not I guess I'd be infuriated all the time. Do I hate blondes; only when they really think gentlemen prefer them. Brunettes are just as good.

I can call them as I see them and I usually do.

I got where you were going with that, I was just breaking your balls. You seem to be pretty hung up on Duke's appearance. lol Sooooo....you're saying Duke's not pretty enough for ya? Well, there's always this guy...

http://www.toystorylamps.com/images/ken.jpg


all 12 inches of him...



Seriously, though. Most First Sergeants I had were pretty well worn, if not grizzled. I sure as hell wouldn't have called any of them pretty. I would think Duke would be more like Joe's version of "Captain American". The soldier's soldier. The guy who always did the right thing. The "boy scout". Duke in Sunbow was older. Atleast that's how he always struck me. Just the art wasn't very good, imo.

To me, and I guess, the artist, Duke was always the older soldier. Like Stalker. Obviously not as old as Hawk. However, Hawk being an officer kind of cuts down on the "doing the real work", thing for me. jmo.

God knows we get enough of that on this site. I could've just said blonde and you guys would've known what I was getting at. The funny thing is, I like Duke more than the average fan. In fact I'm a fan of most boyscout characters, including He-Man, Luke Skywalker, and of course Cap. And I'm not saying there's no way those characters could become "grizzled", but the term BOYscout sorta sums it up.

Lol. Sadly, the Toy Story 3 Ken does look a lot more like Duke to me.

I get what you mean. When I was a kid, I wasn't that big of a Duke fan. After serving I have much more appreciation for the type of soldier he was supposed to represent. I guess I just always saw Sunbow Duke as being in his late 30's.

This^^^ I'm a firm believer that Duke is a badass, always was. As a kid, to me he always looked the part of the older veteran soldier. A real American hero.

As an adult, when I read his filecard, it has Special Forces Snake eater written all over it. The part about him being in southeast Asia says "Black Ops/MacVSog" or in more modern times, dealing with Asian Triad Opium syndicates.
