General Hawk comes dressed in a black T-shirt with small GI Joe logo and blue camo pants in an all new figure mold. The head is a good likeness of actor Dennis Quaid with a molded on beret. It looks like he has a small scar painted on his left cheek. He has a non working shoulder holster and a belt with a working pistol holster that holds a small pistol and has a sculpted GI Joe logo belt buckle. There are a couple of reused accessories here, the jet pack came from the Resolute 5 pack Duke but looks like a better deco this time being mostly grey with some metallic blue lines, small GI Joe logo and designation ďUHM-GĒ on the wing. The briefcase with two Nanomite warheads are the same ones seen with the Baroness figure, only this time the briefcase doesnít have the M.A.R.S. logo. Hawk comes with removable Shoulder Holster, Pistol, Rifle, 2 Nanomite Warheads, Briefcase, Jetpack and GI Joe Stand.
This is a great figure with good details. My main gripes would be the non working shoulder holster, but after seeing the holster for the belt, I can see that it would be too big to work well under the arm and would have to be too small to actually work, so I can forgive that one. The other issue is the belt itself, or rather the torso underneath the belt which has a sculpted belt already which makes the belt with holster either get moved above or below the sculpted belt and make it look a little off. Both are fairly minor gripes for a great figure. For the customizers, this figure would be a great base for a Resolute Flint.
Figure Rating: 9 out of 10

I noticed the big thing about the fig is to do a custom. So the fig itself isn't good enough to be Hawk but with a new head it would be awesome?

I like this figure. I don't really care for movie Hawl wearing a beret, but this is a good looking figure. I'd like to see him in his dress uniform too.
Forget it Jake, it's Hisstank.

I really like this figure, but nothing about it says general or commanding officer. Maybe the jetpack is an homage to the 1991 version. I have no doubt this figure is movie accurate, so maybe my gripe is costume design. I too would love a dress uniform.

Good looking figure but I'm worried about the small wrists.

I really like this figure, the likeness is perfect. The jet pack & accessories are cool also. This is more of field commander look in my opinion. Hawk is ready for battle. Plus I agree the custom possibilities are strong also…

I like this figure, but i dont like Hawk with a beret, hes got Flint's look. Head swap is what im thinking.

I agree with the reviewer totally. This is a very understated, yet fantastic figure. I love the figure, I love the jetpack...everything rocks!

So far, this figure and the desert cammo Duke are my favorites in the line. Hopefully we'll eventually get a single-carded jacket wearing Hawk too since I can't bring myself to fork out the dough for the Pitt.
