Shipwreck grew up in the shadow of the Navy, specifically the shadow of the sprawling San Diego Navy Yards. He enlisted at the youngest possible age with his parents permission and proceeded to serve with distinction, fighting modern-day pirates, smugglers, and every sort of ocean-going thug. When Cobra Commander eludes capture on land and escapes in a speedboat, Shipwreck commandeers a speedboat and races after the evil Cobra leader!

G.I. Joe 50th Anniversary Shipwreck
Nice design for an updated Shipwreck
Nice Navy logo
Perfect gear load-out
Poor execution of an awesome design
Paint on upper arms do not match shirt
Black vest does not snap shut. (line wide problem)
Still has Polly and we really never need to see another one unless it’s a new mold.
To be honest I really overlooked this figure at first until I got him in-hand. It turns out IMO to be one of the best Shipwreck designs we have gotten in G.I. Joe Modern Era to date. The real problem is the poor execution in the final product. The biggest problem is the paint on the arms is way off from the white plastic they used for the shirt. If it was not for this issue it would be my default Shipwreck I would tell people to buy. The other problem is the awesome vest (which is just jet black that I like) won’t close shut. This is a line wide problem. I have not seen one sitting on shelf that does not have this problem. In the future I hope Hasbro address these issues and puts this figure back out because it’s really a great design. No more Polly’s please!
