G.I. JOE: Retaliation Ninja Commando Roadblock Review (Hasbro)

What It Is

The Ninja Commando Roadblock action figure is based on the upcoming movie G.I. JOE: Retaliation. This 10-inch action figure looks like Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, who plays Roadblock in the movie, and will actually fire its own weapons. Make sure the holsters on the back of the figure are horizontal, then load one weapon into each holster. (The figure comes with three weapons.) Make sure the figure's arms are also raised horizontally. Press the button on the figure's belt to hear different battle phrases and sound effects. When you press the button on the back of the figure, the figure's arms reach back and grab the guns, making Roadblock ready for battle.

Is It Fun?

The cool quick-draw weapon feature of the Ninja Commando Roadblock action figure helps bring the action of the new movie to life for G.I. JOE fans. The battle sound effects and phrases help make the play more realistic as kids recreate battle sequences from the movie or imagine all-new battles with this action figure.

Who It’s For

The Ninja Commando Roadblock action figure is for G.I. JOE fans ages 4 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

Two AAA batteries are included, but these power the in-store try-me features. It's recommended that you replace them before you play for best results.

Also available is a G.I. JOE: Retaliation Ninja Commando Snake Eyes action figure.

The movie is rated PG-13 because of violence, so it may not be appropriate for all children even if the violence is very cartoon-like. This is always a challenge with toys based on these types of movies. Collectors and G.I. JOE fans want plenty of non-stop action and insist on at least a PG-13 rating. As always, parents need to determine what’s appropriate for their family and their individual kids. For kids who love G.I. JOE and action figures, though, there’s plenty of play built into these action figures even if the kids don’t see the movie.
