GI Joe Quick Kick Figure

GI Joe Quick Kick

Probably one of the most coolest figures that came out in 1985. I remember us thinking that finally the Ninja, Storm Shadow, would finally have a worthy counterpart from the GI Joe side. That's because in the TV series it was the Indian Tracker, Spirit, who was matched up with Storm Shadow and more often than not he would get his ass kicked. Later on we found out from the comic book series that it was actually Snake Eyes who was Storm Shadow's nemesis.

When I was you, before I bought any GI Joe figure, my friends and I would usually confer which figures we were getting to prevent having the same figures. With Quick Kick however, I broke that rule and bought him even with that pact we made, because that was just how cool a figure he was to me. Of course I would never bring him during our play times to prevent me from being called out *snicker*
