Are there any pics out there of this waist articulation?

Airborne does NOT have waist articulation. He has the standard chest articulation. Pull off his vest and loosen his webgear, and there is no waist articulation underneath. When you move his torso, it looks like he's moving at the waist due to the vest obscuring his chest joint.
Dusty, on the other hand, does have waist articulation. It's pretty much useless though, since the chest joint does the same thing. Hence, the term "spinning meat."
The only downside to Airborne is the backpack peg. I hate the soft material used on the Anniversary line's backpacks. Backpacks just don't stay on very well. I have Airborne's backpack in my freezer. Hopefully, once it's frozen, I'll be able to force it into the hole better. Otherwise, it's too soft to make it through the vest.
Airborne is one of this line's best figures yet, though.

mine went through the vest just fine. just need to make sure you line up the vest hole with the torso hole. I tried forcing it through the vest hole at first too and it didn't go because the torso hole wasn't lined up right. Once I lined it up, the backpack went on great...and doesn't fall out.

I'm very glad Dusty has the waist articulation (even though I hate his helmet), mainly because I'm willing to bet the same torso/waist will be used for Recondo!

Waist movement is a really good improvement and was needed. G.I. Joe keeps getting better!
