Finally, the Big Lob Figure Maybe 12 of You Having Been Waiting All Your Lives For

Why did Hasbro introduce Joe reservist/sports enthusiast Big Lob at the beginning of G.I. Joe: The Movie, and yet never make an action figure of him? It’s one of the questions of the ages, even if only a few terrifyingly hard-core Joe fans cared about the answer. Still, I do understand the aggravation of being a collector when the toy company’s don’t cooperate, and refuse to make a toy needed to complete your collection — and so does the official G.I. Joe Collector’s Club, because they’re making a Big Lob figure. In 2010. And they even made a video for it.

As you can see, Big Lob is done in the classic ’80s-style figure; if you want it, all you need to do is join the G.I. Joe Collector’s Club at Officer Level by Tuesday, March 16th, and you’ll get it free. You know, I hadn’t seen the G.I. Joe movie in a while, but I had forgotten how annoying Big Lob was. I think there’s something wrong with him. I mean, if someone chose to only talked in sports metaphors, he’d be an asshole, but if someone could only talk in sports metaphors? That’s some Rain Man shit right there. Maybe Big Lob should see a specialist of some kind. Just sayin’. (Via ToyNewsI)
