G.I. Joe Machine Gunner, Code Name: ROCK ‘N ROLL.
Inspired by the Hasbro vintage G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero figure, Gentle Giant brings the first in an ongoing series of jumbo 12-inch scale vintage figures based on those original designs. The G.I. Joe Rock N Roll Action Figure is the first of the vintage G.I. Joe figures to be recreated in the jumbo size. Rock N Roll was also one of the first figures released in the series that started in 1982.
