Incoming: Hot Toys G.I. Joe Retaliation 1/6th scale Roadblock Collectible Figure "Yo Joe!"

In view of the popularity of the Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow collectible figure, Hot Toys is proud to present a new addition to our MMS series from the action packed G.I. Joe Retaliation - the 1/6th scale Roadblock Collectible Figure. Roadblock is a force to be reckoned with and the Cobra should think twice before taking on the great one.

Based on the iconic brand from Hasbro, the movie-accurate collectible is specially crafted based on the image of Dwayne Johnson as Roadblock in the movie, featuring a highly detailed head sculpt, finely tailored costume and weapons.


G.I. Joe: Retaliation is a 2013 American science fiction action film directed by Jon M. Chu, based on Hasbro's G.I. Joe toy, comic and media franchises. It is a sequel to 2009's G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. G.I. Joe: Retaliation features an ensemble cast, starring Bruce Willis and Dwayne Johnson, with Channing Tatum, Arnold Vosloo, Ray Park, Jonathan Pryce, and Byung-hun Lee reprising their roles from the first film. Dwayne Johnson stars as Roadblock (Marvin F. Hinton), whose primary function in G.I. Joe is as a heavy machine gunner and his secondary function is as a cook. The only thing that Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson cooks in the movie are bad guys - scrambled, beaten and smashed! haha




This is simply AWESOME!!! Hot Toys was already releasing top notch military figures before they got into the movie merchandising business so this MMS release just goes back to their roots and this figure ROCKS (pun intended)!

I still cannot understand why people are criticizing the headsculpt. I find it near-perfect. Perhaps, the only setback would be the lack of a taller and buff body. Otherwise, this figure is top notch especially knowing Hot Toys were a company where started with military figures. Brings back the good old days.

I think that's the problem with society nowadays. People just love to complain. They are never satisfied and they'll criticize everything, even if it was perfect. They use the internet and other media to say how they feel without realizing that it reflects back on them :) Everybody has their right to their own opinion but keep it to yourself unless it's on your own personal blog, then it's your place to rant because it's your own space and people don't have to read it if they don't want to haha

I like this head sculpt too and don't understand why people must compare this with that and bitch about it. Don't like, don't buy and let others who do like it be happy that they bought it. Don't have to put others down just because you cannot appreciate and see the beauty that others can.

This is so BOUGHT :)

I LOVE reading positive and negative opinions on these collectables, but You gotta admit $220 is EXTREMELY high here. STORM SHADOW from the same line and movie is $15 less WITH an extra headsculpt, and $25 more than Snakes. The increase is unexceptable, after 3+ years of steady increases ROAD BLOCK will be my first Hot Toys boycott. As most collectors will agree with me, we'll spend the money but give us a bargain and a break. This this a $180 figure. ...
