Footloose turned out great. His look is reminiscent of the original but updated. Love the helmet. Good choices in his weapons. But seriously... no HOLSTER FOR HIS PISTOL? That is my biggest complaint, honest. (But, I do like my holsters) He really can't carry all his gear well. The bazooka has a hard time staying on his shoulder with the oversized backpack. But I'm over it. He looks great with just his rifle and helmet. His gear consists of: rifle, pistol, flashlight, knife, helmet, and backpack.
His articulation is like a 30th figure. He has the awesome updated wrists. They allow for better poses with his gear. His ankles, knees, and elbows are the standard. I do have a problem with his neck. He cannot look up or down. Kind of a bummer. But again, I'm over it. He has plenty of posability!
When comparing him to the original Footloose, the colors are different. The webgear does not look the same. But the rest of his design is damn close! His new head sculpt does capture the elements of Footloose. I approve, although I do like the colors in the 1985 camo pattern slightly better.
The Joe Club is giving us core characters that we are missing in the updated 25th/30th style. A big manhug and backslap to the boys making this happen! Thank you GI Joe Club!
Footloose and Dial-Tone
And don't forget. Bag him like a boss!
