Lt. Torpedo is an all new sculpt that looks exactly like the originalÖ.only much better. Underneath the removable mask, the face looks just like the cartoon Torpedo. The backpack has been updated to have a hose plug into it and each of the two air tanks are removable. The legs have gotten two additions, a knife sheath and pistol holster. The flippers look just like the originals but include extra holes so Lt. Torpedo can wear them while displayed on the stand. The belt and details on the chest are now individually painted unlike the original. Lt. Torpedo comes with a Harpoon Gun, Knife, Pistol, two Flippers, Mask, Backpack, two Air Tanks and a GI Joe Stand.
The original Torpedo figure back in the 80's was the worst looking figure I had ever seen as a kid. He was cool because he was a diver but the droopy looking eyes and odd shaped head killed it for me. Thankfully, the 25th incarnation brought him back with a vengeance!
Figure Rating: 9 out of 10

awesome figure. It seems he is often forgotten in this line. I would have been tempted to give him a 10/10.

This figure is fantastic and he is one of the best at sitting down. I too would have been tempted to give a 10 for this figure.

I loved this figure as a kid, although we mistakenly used to call him SEAL. It was hilarious to see Torpedo fighting on land alongside the rest of the Joes in his wetsuit and mask.
Forget it Jake, it's Hisstank.

With no drawbacks, I don't see how this figure couldn't have attained a ten. He's perfect. One of the best in the line.

Great review, as usual.
I always wanted to like Torpedo as a kid, but found it difficult. And airmask on land was silly, so he became very mission specific.
If I needed someone to dive for something, he was called on. And he sometimes operated the Devilfish. Beyond that, he was a background character.
Great update, Hasbro!
