Special thanks to BeesBattleGrounds for sending in hand images of Night Force Tunnel Rat GI Joe Classified Series figure! Night Force Tunnel Rat came hot off the heels of the first release but we are not complaining! Night Force Tunnel Rat was revealed ahead of the Friday the 13th (2023) Walmart Collector Con and it’s amazing to see in hand images so fast! The Night Force faction is one our favorites and BeesBattleGrounds did an amazing photoshoot complete with comparisons and some up close and personal details on the figure.
NF Tunnel Rat
We are so thrilled that BeesBattleGrounds shared these images of Night Force Tunnel Rat because the Night Force faction is one of our favorites and Tunnel Rat is one of the OG figures that was in the original vintage NF line! The previous Night Force figures that came before Tunnel Rat, like Wolf Spider, Big Ben, and Shooter were not in the original vintage line as Night Force figures to it is great to see Tunnel joining the ranks.
As the NF version is a repaint, there are a lot of differences to note as the Night Force version is devoid of paint apps on the face and arms, which was a great move by the Joe Team as it shows they were really thoughtful about figure figure design and aesthetic. Another difference you can see in the comparison below is the bandana has a camo design whereas the original version of Tunnel Rat as a black bandana! What is great about seeing both figures side by side, if you prefer the black bandana look, a simple head swap will fix this!
It’s also great to see side by side comparisons with other figures, like Big Ben, as you can see the Night Force faction logo and how he fits in with the other figures.
Looking at Wolf Spider, Shooter, Big Ben, and Tunnel Rat all together the Night Force faction is shaping up very nicely! We hope they go deep into Night Force we are all in for a treat and we know that NF Crazylegs and Rip Cord are joining that ranks as they were unlocks for the Dragonfly HasLab.
