I Want That: Destro figure from Sideshow Collectibles

Please don't hate me but I'm going to bring up Christmas again...

I've decided to be on the lookout for cool stuff that you might want to gift your loved ones, or people you like enough to get presents.

Today's installment is on the higher end but I thought it was awesome. I know tons of people who were seriously devoted to G.I. JOE. I was a little late to the bandwagon but have gained an interest in all things JOE.

That said, Destro is one of my favorite characters. I was giddy to hear that the 9th Doctor (Christopher Eccelston) was taking on the role in 2009s G.I. JOE: RISE OF COBRA even if I wasn't overly impressed with the movie. Plus we both share a love of a certain bad ass brunette with glasses.

The figure will run you about $179.99 but remember that you can pay in installments if you want this bad boy. Head here for more details.
