Action Figure Review: Sgt. Slaughter
By Nolan P Smith
One of my favorite characters to come out of the G.I. Joe universe is the man himself, Sgt Slaughter. Not to mention, he is one of the most remarkable characters to hit the squared circle of professional wrestling. Thanks to new company Valaverse and their new Action Force line, the legend lives on as Sgt Slaughter has returned to the world of action figures.
So, how is this new figure from a new company? This six-inch figure does not disappoint. Complete with multiple hands, trademark hat, sunglasses, knife, gun, and stand, this is a really well-done figure. Be sure to run it under hot water first and work those joints as they can be stiff! Honestly, that’s a rule of thumb for most new figures. So, be sure to submerge your figure in hot water for a bit of time before you work those joints. Let’s get into the action figure.
Boasting a massive amount of articulation, like a Marvel Legends or G.I. Joe Classified figure, the sarge has an excellent sculpt and likeness. Donning an army green jacket, Slaughter is ready for the modern era of 1/12 figures. This figure is crazy cool and puts you in a Cobra Clutch of nostalgia, maggot. It measures up to other 1/12 scale figures, precisely what you need for your G.I. Joe Classified collection.
This is an excellent debut for Valaverse, taking a pop culture icon like Sgt Slaughter and bringing him to a brand new audience in 2022. Action Force’s Sgt Slaughter brings the pain and then some, be sure to track this one down.
