Thanks to Gentle Giant we now have the very first photo shoot for the upcoming G.I. Joe ARAH Rock ‘N Roll Jumbo figure. Featuring O-Ring construction and old school ARAH style deco that started it all, Rock ‘N Roll is an awesome addition to any G.I. Joe fans collection.
Inspired by the Hasbro vintage G.I. Joe A Real American Hero figure, Gentle Giant is proud to bring you the G.I. Joe Machine Gunner, Code Name: ROCK ‘N ROLL. One of the first figures released in the series that started in 1982, Rock ‘N Roll is now the FIRST figure in an ongoing series of jumbo vintage figures.
