Duke is seen here in the Delta-6 Accelerator suit. This is the same body as the Delta-6 Ripcord with the same head as Reactive Armor Duke. This time the head has been molded in his flesh tone rather than have it painted on. This body includes the removable wrist accessories that Ripcord didnít have. The paint apps have been changed on this figure. Now itís mainly black with a few areas dry-brushed with silver paint giving it a much darker look. The GI Joe sigil is now black with a yellow background rather than being all white like on Ripcordís Deta-6 suit. The helmet is the same as is the assault rifle that came with Ripcord. Keeping with the current trend of making the missile launchers more than just huge bazookas, Dukeís Missile Launcher has a stand and a string attaching the missile to the launcher. Duke comes with a removable Helmet, Rifle, Gatling Gun Wrist Attachment, Rocket Wrist Attachment, Missile Launcher with Missile and GI Joe Stand.
Sculpt wise, this figure is just as good as the Ripcord one and itís nice that we now have the wrist attachments. The paint apps are where this figure falters a little for me. The crispness of the paint apps on the Ripcord Delta-6 are lost here with sloppy dry-brushed silver sporadically applied mainly to the front of the figure. This gives it either a very dirty, greasy look, or just an unfinished look depending on how much creativity you have for this figure. The missile launcher is ok and I like that itís not just an oversized bazooka.
Figure Rating: 8 out of 10

I wish he came with another version of the "PackRat"-ish thing like the one Ripcord had, but oh well.
I want to pick up one of these to make into a brand new Sci-Fi, just looks too good to not use as Sci-Fi.
Thanks for the review, good as usual.

Thanks for the review.
I wonder if Hasbro is ever going to make the helmets on these movie accurate? This seems like a fairly easy-to-justify repaint for the future.

I have Delta-6 Accelerator Suit Ripcord and was actually surprised at how much I like him - I will be giving this Duke a pass tho as I already have the reactive armor one

Great review Shogi!!
I've only seen this figure in the wild once so far. He was so cross-eyed that I just couldn't buy him & am waiting till I find another. I'm sure next month he will be in mass & I will get him then... ^_-

Master Chief? Is that you?
This figure isn't reminescent of Duke in any kind of way. I give it a 7/10 but it looks likle it belongs to a different toyline. Robocop perhaps?

We got Matt Trakker from M.A.S.K., now Starship Troopers in G.I. Joe. Sweet.
Can't wait until the Ghostbusters and Dino-Riders make it into the line, I loved those as a kid.
