ReAction Action Figures - G.I.Joe Wave 6 - Tiger Force Scarlett - Super7 2023

Once again the Super7 ReAction line gives me vindication. I was a big fan of G.I.Joe in the eighties. Almost every kid was a fan, but for those of us that were obsessive and stuck with it as we grew up, we were rewarded with thematic factions like Python Patrol, Iron Grenadiers, Night Force, and Tiger Force. These were great because they almost always featured the classic characters in cool redecos. The problem for me was that they were always devoid of females. With the sole exception of Ninja Force Scarlett, the new factions were a total boys club. When the line rebooted in the early 2000s, Hasbro gave us a very cool Night Force Lady Jaye and a Tiger Force Jinx, but the initial exclusion still stung. This Tiger Force Scarlett feels like a figure we should have gotten back in '88 (albeit in 5poa), right down to the awkward stripes like Lifeline and Frostbite had. I hope they eventually make a ReAction Jinx so we can get her green Tiger Force repaint to pair with Scarlett. Here's hoping. Let's check out Scarlett!

Scarlett comes with her signature Crossbow and Quiver cast in olive drab plastic.

Time for some Comparison Pics!

Here is Scarlett with her wave-mate, Python Patrol Baroness.

And here are the three ReAction Scarletts so far: Tiger Force (2023), Original (2021), and Glow Patrol (2022).
