Steeler has the same generic greenshirt body we saw with Clutch, including those Duke arms and that Snake-Eyes knife sheath (If you read the Clutch review, you know how I feel about that knife sheath) There is an all new head covered with the same generic helmet that came with Roadblock. There is a new removable web belt that is quintessential Steeler. Also included with this figure is a knife and a GI Joe stand. He has the same ankle holster as Clutch, but there is no gun for it. (Apparently, I got a set that was missing the gun as two others have reported that they got ankle guns with their Steeler)
As a generic greenshirt, this is a good figure. Sure he may have Duke arms but if he's driving the Armadillo, it doesn't look bad. However, this isn't some generic greenshirt, this is Steeler! He has a unique face sculpt with the same thin nose the original Steeler had, unfortunately that is where the good ends. The helmet has no holes so there's no possibility of attaching any visor without cutting it. Where Hasbro had a stroke of brilliance with Clutch's jacket over the generic greenshirt torso, with steeler, they dropped the ball. They could have used an Ace torso with the new web belt, or made a jacket like they did with Clutch that uses the web belt in the mold. Either of these would give the new Steeler figure a more classic look than the generic one he has now. They also could have used the Cobra Trooper arms instead of Duke's. I'm sure using the same body as Clutch was done to save cost and get us a cheaper costing vehicle but still, I woulda liked a bit more.
Figure Rating: 6 out of 10
