I totally love this figure. In the few hours I've had him, he's already become my favorite 25th/Modern figure.
The figure over all is a great new sculpt, I dig the elbow and knee pads, I dig the head sculpt, and I dig all of his gear (especially the vest). I even like the holster. I also love the colors they chose for him. While his head size and skin tones do not match the other 25th figures, I do not mind as they did him as they should have.
If you looks close next to v1 duke (5-pack/carded) he has a slightly "cartoony" paint job in comparison, and frankly, I like it as opposed to the normal realistic Joe colors. His head is proportionate to his body, and that is good.
However, there are three things I dont like about this figure. First, his torso does not move well, he cannot bend over, but he can twist good. The arm articulation is superb, there are so many more poses and stances I can make with these new arms and legs then I could with most of the other 25th figures. Now, the second thing I don't like is the choice in foot/lower leg wear. The canvas boot covers don't make any sense, nor to the snow boots he has on:
Oh yes, they totally look like that, different color but go see for yourself. The third and last thing I dont like are the weapons. There is no place to put the knife, there is no extra holster, and the assault rifle looks like a water gun. There is a simple fix for this, and thats to rearm him. I chose Marauder's XM8, and he looks great armed with it. Check it out:
Overall, I would give this figure a 9 out of 10. Simply based on accessories, construction, colors, posability, and detail (all of his equipment-vest, holster, pads, uniform, belt, dump pouch-are all really accurate in a modern military perspective). Great figure. Im buying 3 more just for customs.

This is my fave DUKE. Only took them 75 versions and a new animated series to cook up a cool one.
I love his weapons.
Also does his right cheek have a little flash of pink on it to denote a scar? Ahhh, yes it does after further inspection.

Believe it or not, but I'm going to pass over this and other GI Joe Resolute and Movie products, except for a few figures that I like. I'm running of apartment space so I need to buy more carefully.

My duke, what big lips you have ...?!??!? I dunno , love the gear... But overall ,meh . I will say ... This resolute line could be sweet for flint, firefly, dialtone, even covergirl... If the cobra commanders lower body was less... Skirt and sculpted I would probably love it.

Nice modernized look. Big head. It's not bad but it's not TF Duke, which is the best version for me.

For the record I don't "hate" this figure. However, (and mine seems a little different from the pics on this thread), his HEAD seems too big. I mentioned in another Thread that looking at my figure he seems 2 have a big head and looks like the adult version of Charlie Brown. As if Chuck grew up and joined GI Joe. I'm not sure why Duke's head seems so big. It's like long. His forehead is too high and his face is too round. Again, he seems slightly different than the one pictured on this blog. That one's head seems more like Duke. This one seems more like Charlie Brown. Yet they're not that far off. Wierd!

this figure should be an 8 out of 10, but I give it a 6. first off, it is a big step backwards without a sheath for a the knife and the molded pistol on the leg instead of an empty pistol holster -- for the pistol he comes with. wtf?!?
and the face looks significantly like Channing Tatum, right down to the scar down the right cheek.
