Spirit Iron-Knife Foot and Hand DetailGenerally speaking Hasbro's recent Toys "R" Us figures have been pretty uninspired, but this Spirit Iron-Knife shows a lot of inspiration. Combining parts from several existing and unreleased figures, this creation is, for all intents and purposes, a nod to Predator's own Billy as portrayed by the reportedly crazy Sonny Landham. While not a perfect match, the figure is enough of a departure from the 1980s Spirit and there are enough similarities to say that fans of Predator are getting the figures they always wanted... sort of.

Spirit Iron-Knife Wrist BlastThis 4-inch figure has average articulation for the Pursuit of Cobra line of G.I. Joe figures, which is to say plenty-- roughly 16 joints, depending on how you count, bring this character to life with his crazy stare and sharp objects. If you want him to shoot things, he has a gun. If you want him to scare little girls, he has some snakes. If you want him to shoot things with an arrow, he's got that too. Of note, the arrow's tip does indeed fit in a figure's back hole, meaning you can shoot most Cobras or Joes in the back if you're so inclined. For a store exclusive, Hasbro really went the extra mile to put a lot of fun stuff into this package.

I haven't been able to find anything I don't like about this figure. The hands hold the weapons, his hip joints are unrestricted so he could fit in every vehicle I tested with him, and he just looks like he's going to knife-rape someone in the face. I don't even know what that means, but just look at the guy. He's going to cause some problems.

Like this entire Pursuit of Cobra sub-line, Spirit is loaded with gear. The great head sculpt alone makes it worth the purchase, but when you factor in so much extra junk it's almost a crying shame you aren't an 8-year-old who gets this for his birthday. It's a great figure and one of the plastic highlights of the summer of 2010. If you only buy one or two Joe figures in 2010, put this on your short list.
