#88: G.I. Joe Spirit

Although I ordered Spirit before I actually saw the movie, it is clear that it is doing a good job of selling me toys. It helps that I had a Spirit figure when I was a kid, and I am always partial to Joe figures that come with animal companions. Spirit has a particularly odd weapon, even for G.I. Joe: a rifle that shoots arrows. It's not as odd as a football on a chain, but still out there. The magazine is removable from the rifle, and there are a couple extra magazines that store on the frame of his backpack. He also comes with a knife that fits in a sheathe on his leg as well as Freedom, the bald eagle. I think Stephen Colbert would approve.
