G.I.Joe 3 3/4" Mercenary Wraith Figure & Variant
GI Joe: Jay Cochran - 2008.07.08
Here is a look at Hasbro’s upcoming 3 ¾” G.I.Joe Mercenary Wraith figure, which will be part of their 6th wave for 2008.

Wraith whose real name is Charles Halifax is a French mercenary who specializes in eliminations, espionage and covert ops. He wears a high tech suit with hidden weapons and a cloaking device that he stole from the Chinese. He is hired by M.A.R.S. to free Major Bludd and Scrap-Iron from jail and serve as Destro's enforcer. He is one of the few to defeat Snake-Eyes in single combat. Halifax was later killed by the Baroness for having a role in the kidnapping of her baby.

Wraith first appeared in Devil’s Due G.I.Joe # 31. His final appearance was in G.I.Joe: America’s Elite #22.

This figure will also have a transparent variant released depicting the character in his invisible mode.

Look for the assortment with Wraith to be released in September 2008. Other figures to ship in this wave include the following:

Cobra Crocmaster
Mutt & Junkyard
Cobra Para Viper
Cobra Bazooka Soldier
Duke (Tiger Force)

True, maybe they were trying to keep it simple with the cobra logo, which is an error on their part. But I guess maybe they are thinking that not alot of people read the comics and know that he was Destro's agent, so they just decided to dumb it down and just give him the cobra logo to keep on t... read more

I was a ddp fan (save for the Casey run) and look forward to the figure, but once again with this varient, why a logo? This was destro's man and never had a cobra logo! That's a pretty big charge with out elaborating Hogan vibe.

Yes, admittedly the DD run was not the best, to many deaths, too short plot lines, etc. etc. That said however, many of the characters they introduced to match the new toys were actually rather good. Wraith was an awesome character and has turned out a pretty decent figure (better than Serpentor or ... read more

I may be a fan. I like the Michael Turner drawing of him. I just don't like the action figure. If I were to do anything, I'd get the clear on and paint it so it looks like Turner's drawing. I never got that far in Devil's Due because a buddy of mine did a bunch of work for them an... read more

Am I the only fan of Wraith here? I am a fan of Gi Joe and have been for 25+ years. I've enjoyed the comics, cartoons, movie (gasp), and all the toys. I have read the original marvel run, and read the devils due comics. The Devils Due weren't the best, but had their moments. I can't say ... read more
