Featured in the upcoming EA Sports video game and an IDW comic issue, Agent Helix is the covert operations officer for the G.I. Joe team. Helix wears a gray and yellow outfit with black straps, kneepads, boots, and gloves. She also wears what looks like a black and gray corset. She has a belt with several silver compartments and a pair of binoculars. Helix’s hair is black with many bleached stripes. This figure comes with two larger, scoped pistols, a rifle (HK G11, as noted by several Tank members), a long knife, and a spring-loaded missile launcher with a net attachment.
As soon as I saw Helix in the package, I knew I was going to like this figure. The main reason was that the paint job on the eyes was not applied as seen on the figure in early release photos—the one I received was much better. Even beyond that, this is a great figure. As with the other ROC figures I have purchased, this is a sturdy figure with good articulation and cleanly applied paint. The G.I. Joe team needs more female characters, and this figure is a welcome addition. The only qualms I have are the mid-forearm joints (not bad, but I prefer wrist articulation) and some difficulty in getting the hands to hold weapons (again, not bad, but could be better). Both of these are small things, and I can easily overlook them. The weapons are mediocre, although I do like the scoped pictols—I only wish they were black instead of gray.
Figure rating: 10 out of 10

Helix is one of the few RoC figures that I am REALLY looking forward to. I want to find her, but no luck so far.
I find it funny that one of the coolest looking waves (Helix, Flash, The Doctor) has proved to be the rarest thus far.
G.I. Joe fans are the kind of people who demand a steak dinner but will only pay for macaroni and cheese.

I like everything about this figure except the yellow. I'd like to have seen that in a more "military/secret agent/don't shoot me" color.
I think she's got one of the coolest hairsculpts i've seen on a female 3-3/4" figure.
My 25th Most Wanted List:
1. Tunnel Rat <-CHECK! 2. General Hawk (v2)<-CHECK! 3. Leatherneck <-CHECK(kinda...)
4. Jinx 5. Dusty <-CHECK! 6. Snow Serpent <-CHECK! 7. Tele-Viper <-CHECK(kinda...)
8. Falcon<-CHECK (kinda...) 9. Footloose <-CHECK! 10. Recondo <-CHECK!
9 down, 1 to go ~ but i really want a new Leatherneck and Falcon
