It looks like G.I. Joe is basically dead right now, so hopefully the suits at Hasbro get their collective act together soon and get the franchise going again. For now, here's a figure I've been wanting to pick up for a while, and friend of the blog James happened to find one for me at a Toys R Us. Blind Master is a cool character and all, but this is a case where I wanted the figure more because of the actor playing the part. So now I have an action figure of the Wu-Tang Clan's RZA. Blind Master includes a bevy of accessories, and one of the weapons is a sword with a series of rings along the backside of the blade.
The first piece of headgear included with Blind Master doubles as a shield and has hidden blades that fold out. There's also a staff with a removable end that reveals a hidden blade.
The other piece of headgear included is a mask. There's also a blowgun, and some sort of spiky ring tethered by a rope. Not pictured, is the standard G.I. Joe Retaliation stand, which is fairly nondescript.
