2007 SDCC Exclusive Gold & Silver "Pimp Daddy Destro" Figures
: Jay Cochran - 2007.05.30
In 1982 Hasbro introduced a new line of products that changed the landscape of boys action figures: G.I. JOE A REAL AMERICAN HERO … which quickly became one of the most memorable toy lines of the 1980s. Not only is Hasbro commemorating the 25th anniversary with the release of a special edition series of A REAL AMERICAN HERO figures, but they are bringing you one of the coolest convention exclusives ever! There was a time when DESTRO briefly replaced his bad-to-the-bone suit with a very flamboyant outfit: dark and deadly DESTRO was now dressed in leopard skin. The unusual deco was given the go-ahead for production, and a few hundred of these garish guys made it into the world before Hasbro decided the deco was too over-the-top. The colors were toned down, and DESTRO was back to his usual black-clad badness. Because those leopard-skin figures are almost impossible to find, we've decided to give you a treat. We're bringing him back, just as briefly as before, for his tenth anniversary. At Comic-Con 2007
, he'll be available in two versions for your viewing and collecting enjoyment, so grab both of them while you can!
Production Run: TBA
