Yo Joe! Roadblock Reports For Duty With Threezero Sixth Scale FigureJose Lopez
G.I. Joe collectors are a select breed of fans. When Threezero revealed that they had the license to produce 1:6 scale figures based on the brand, those collectors were hesitant with their excitement. However, after the excellent renditions of Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow that the company has released, that excitement has been earned. Now, to follow up on the duo, Threezero has announced the preorder for the latest entry, Roadblock!
The character of Marvin Hinton has been a part of the Joe franchise since the very beginning, first appearing in action figure form in 1984. This iteration that Threezero has gone with is actually based on the second outfit Roadblock sported. There’s always hope, though, that collectors will get the character in his original look, possibly in a Previews Exclusive release, which both Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow received.
Roadblock looks spot on to some of his earliest appearances. The Sixth Scale recreation of this soldier is great, down to his M2 Browning heavy machine gun. The seamless arms are promising, as is the head sculpt. Hopefully, the prototype will be what we get in the final product. I have faith in Threezero that this will be a Roadblock that will make G.I. Joe fans happy.
The Threezero G.I. Joe – Roadblock Sixth Scale Figure is available for preorder now and is slated for a Q4, 2022 – Q1, 2023 release.
“Threezero is proud to present the next character from the G.I. Joe team, Marvin Hinton, who is also known as Roadblock! First debuting in 1984 with his formidable size and brawn, Roadblock is the heavy machine gunner in the team who can carry an M2 browning machine gun!
Standing at approximately 12” (30 cm) tall, the G.I. Joe 1:6 Roadblock collectible figure features our standard fully-articulated body with realistic seamless arms, fabric hand-tailored costuming, and high attention to detail. Presenting a highly-accurate likeness to the character as portrayed in G.I. Joe comics, Roadblock comes with a full loadout of weapons including a pistol with holster, knife with sheath, an M2 browning heavy machine gun, grenades, smoke grenades, tripod, and bullets.
Sure to please even the most hardcore G.I.Joe fans, Roadblock is one figure you won’t want to miss out on!”
