GI Joe’s Duke is now available as a 1:6 scale figure from the folks at Sideshow. Still popular after forty-six years of the Hasbro-created franchise, GI Joe goes back to its 12-inch roots with this figure of the character Duke, created in 1983 and most recently portrayed by actor Channing Tatum in GI Joe: The Rise of Cobra.
This model is a throwback, though, and based not on any 2000s film, but on the grim-looking character traditionalists will know and love. The Duke 12-inch Figure boasts the following features:
* Fully articulated Pro male body Version 1.2 with 30+ points of articulation
* Duke portrait
* Detailed belt
* Go Bag
* Utility belt
* Handgun pouch
* Water bottle
* Dog tags
* Laser Rifle
* Rifle grenades x 6
* Pistol magazines x 2
* Grenades x 3
* Yellow smoke grenade x 1
* Red smoke grenade x 1
* Three sets of interchangeable hands
* 12-inch display base with G.I. Joe logo

Anastasia Decobray is as dangerous as she is beautiful. A master spy for COBRA and a powerful, high-ranking figure at M.A.R.S. Industries, she carries out her plans with icy efficiency.
