After the shortcomings of the first Duke release for the new sculpt era, this figure was a welcome update. I myself hadn't been so thrilled to buy GI Joe's in years when I first got this figure, I was that excited. Yes, I am bucky, and I am a huge Duke fan. I had to include him in this project just due to loving this figure so much.

For Joecustoms.com Celebration 8 in early 2014, customizers Oreobuilder and Bucky presented a joint project highlighting a selection of figures released during the "New Sculpt Era". While classic characters were updated and fresh new ideas helped push the Joe brand forward, it loses points with alot of collectors due to the lack of consistency of figure's proportions and the sculpts themselves.

Oreobuilder and Bucky thought it would be fun to translate the ideas behind the updates and new characters into the modern era format. This figure is one of the results.
