They are an elite fighting force led by a pair of twins that feel each other's pain. They are the Imperial Guards of Cobra. They wear red leather, not caring that the 80's were three decades ago. They are the Crimson Guard, the latest in the sixth scale line of G.I. Joe figures, and they are incredibly fine.
Lt. Falcon is fine with all his gritty realism, and Zartan is pretty subdued, as a master of disguise must be, but for me it was always the more outrageous G.I. Joe outfits that got my blood pumping and my mom-hem-tugging fingers working overtime. Give me a guy that'll walk onto the battlefield wearing brilliant crimson, gold braids and a face mask—because anonymity is important at that point.
