"Dollar" G.I. Joe Duke


Out of all of the "Dollar" G.I. Joes, Duke is the most simple.  Standard green shirt look.  Couple of guns.  No fancy wrist articulation.  But yet, he works and he works well.

The discount store G.I. Joe figures were a surprise and delight to those lucky rough to find them and to those willing to go to eBay.  He has a great head sculpt and my one big complaint is that he has too many holsters for his guns... that sounds so backwards.  He is the epitome of the "green shirt" even though this troop type is showed up by the awesomeness that is the Retaliation Joe Trooper.  Duke is a great simple repaint/kitbash.  Thank you Hasbro!  Enjoy the pics.








And knowing is half the battle!

  1. I'm totally using this guy's head for Agent Coulson.

    1. I dunno about you, I'm going to use this head as a surrogate head for Captain America from the Avengers line, seeing as I just can't get the unmasked variant.

    2. That is also an acceptable use of this head.

  2. Sorry to read there's no wrist articulation but I am still on the hunt for these figures. I know the hair is parted on the wrong side but the head reminds me of Chris Evans as Captain America.

    1. He has the standard peg wrists, but not the swivel and peg that we have been getting.

  3. Thanks Jason. I guess it's my day to be thick.
