I do enjoy racking up a body count on Cobra’s tab, but you Joes made this personal.

Back Story: Bludd’s real name is Sebastion Bludd born in Sydney Australia. Serving in the Special Air Service in Australia his rank is Major (O-4). He first appeared in  GI Joe # 15 in which Cobra Commander hired him to kill off Destro.

What’s in the box: Bludd comes with his signature helmet, sidearm, backpack with two missiles that can be placed in the pack, and handheld launcher, and let’s not forget the dog tags of his fallen enemies.

The Verdict: This is one of my favorites to be added to the Classified line. They kept true to the roots of the character but added some minor upgrades to keep up with the times. The classic eye patch scared face and pornstache def stuck with the eighties theme. My only complaint is two different things, the missiles do not sit well in the backpack and they do not connect to the gun. This was a Target Exclusive so if you slept on it the chances of you grabbing him is gonna be slim you might have a shot as they did a few rereleases over the past few weeks. Grab him, either way, he is a must-have for the collection

Yo Joe!
