Can't say that I'm too keen on this guy. Plus the Flag on his shoulder is upside down.

I only had 2 Dukes from the classic line. The Tiger Force one and the one I actually LIKED - the Desert Camo [Version 4] one with the molded-on helmet. It was my favorite Joe figure at a time when I wasn't buying many toys at all since I was already in the middle of my first year at college.
I didn't notice if there were a lot of Dukes in the JVC, VvV or Spytroops line;I only started getting the idea that Hasbro had a hard on for this guy with Sigma Six. I skipped over this figure when I first had a chance to get him and will probably continue to do so until I accidently acquire him in the Best of DVD pack.

The flag and jetpack are great, but I find them of minimal use. I was going to use the jetpack on my Grand Slam, but it just doesn't look good for some reason. I think I'll just have to wait for a 25th Anniversary JUMP Pad with the green one. The flag is great, and if it works on the Flagg maybe I'll use it then, but I just don't find myself using it in my displays. I prefer my Joes posed with weapons. Nothing to do with being unpatriotic or anything, since I'm Canadian. Nothing against the US either, of course! I do like it, I just don't find myself using it.
The figure, meh. I mean, it's the same old Duke, except with slightly paler clothes, and they don't look any better. I wish they would at least have redone the arms or maybe gone for a different headsculpt (although I'd rather them do different headsculpts for new characters before this). All around, pretty unimpressive.
Please check out http://hmcsgreatadventure.com/ - it's a mix of sci-fi, humour and the friggin' Royal Canadian Navy, eh!

As a figure you pop open and mess around with, I can see how someone can be apathetic or even disappointed with this Duke.
But I've been keeping all of the 25th (or are they officially 26th now?) Joes sealed on their cards. So I think that as a display piece, this Duke is worth owning. When I saw that another Duke was listed for this wave, I was bummed. But when I saw the figure on its card in a store, I thought: "heh...that's actually kinda' cool. I should get it".

Duke was my first 25th anniversary figure because I bought him AFTER watching the movie again. I dont understand the hate on the film...
But the opening of the movie IMHO is extremely powerful and Duke is IMHO the definition of a Joe. I swear Kurt Russell needs to play Duke damnit!
I have this figure. Its a good figure. Wish he was a bit more cartoony.....blonder hair, yellower shirt, brighter green and no helmet but I like it.

I have always really really , really really HATE the rifle. It looks ridiculous!! Can't they give him a REAL gun like an M16 or with M203 grenade laucher instead. I bought this for the jet pack but the stupid F... rifle spoils everything !!!!!
