Marauder Task Force Kickstarter Figure

I’ve heard a lot of horror stories out there about Kickstarter action figures. Most haven’t even got off the ground. One that did, had a couple little bumps along the way, and is no shipped is the Marauder Task Force figure. This project was helmed by the folks that bring us all those cool weapons […]

Kyle Latino Sketches GI Joe

I’m going to break into my Joe Con posts to show off something I’m really happy with. Every year at our local comic con, I typically ask Kyle Latino for a pulp character sketch. He really has the style down and gets those characters, so they are always fantastic. This year I changed it up, […]

Joe Con 2013: Custom Figures

  I started with the dioramas because they are a personal favorite. However, there was just as much talent on display in the custom figure competition.   This was actually in the diorama category, I just forgot to put it over there. I dig astronauts, so this 12″ Joe was fun for me to see. […]

Joe Con 2013: Diorama Contest

I was completely blown away at the quality of dioramas on display at Joe Con 2013. You can tell the folks that put these together are passionate about their hobby for sure. I could have spent all day looking at just these and probably not seen all the cool details.   I had to include […]

Rock & Roll (GI Joe Kreo)

I know everybody wanted GI Joe Lego. A quick image search will yield a number of custom creations out there. However, Hasbro wouldn’t want to license somebody to do that when they have their own Kreo building block line. I want to say up front the character choice show this line was created by fans of the […]

AWE Striker

The AWE Striker has been around for a long time. Since 1985 in fact. It’s been repainted several times and is somewhat of a staple of the line. That said, I’ve never owned one until I saw this one at a good price. I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the box. The backdrop folds […]

Night Fox

It seems like these days, any driver or pilot that comes with a vehicle is an after thought. An easy place to cost cut, articulation and accessories for these figures may soon be a thing of the past. However, that wasn’t the case all that long ago. Case in point, Night Fox, the driver that […]

  It’s the return of Bruno, as Bruce Willis moonlights from the Die Hard franchise to visit the world of GI Joe as Joe Colton.  Joe Colton you ask? Who’s that? It’s the name given in the Real American Hero (RAH) universe to a character that is an homage to the very first 12″ GI […]

Ace (Vintage)

Well I didn’t think was right to look at the new Ace without taking a look back at the vintage one. This Ace came with the original Skystriker and his design was featured in most of his early comic appearances: Appearnace: He looks like an astronaut. There I said it. It’s probably not Hasbro’s fault. […]

Captain Ace

I’ve mentioned a lot in GI Joe reviews how I was an Air Force brat. It should come as no surprise that I’m an Ace fan. I did put off getting the newest Skystriker for awhile, though. First, I had the old one. Second, I don’t really have a place to display it. My thoughts […]

Head Swap: Zombie COBRA Swat

I have to say this was a purely based on the new season of  the Walking Dead. In the season premier, one of the cooler looking zombies were prison guards that had been turned. While slightly controversial to some, they did look cooler than the typical walkers. Now, I had an idea to put this […]

Marauder Stands

  I’m not a big stand user. However, there are times as an action figure collector you need a stand for a figure that just wants to fall over at the slightest breeze. There’s a number of options out there, and I’ve tried a few of them over the years. However, I was recently intrigued […]

I swear ever time I watch Sons of Guns I learns something about guns and GI Joe. This week I learned that the guns shown in the new Total Recall are Kriss Vectors. It’s also the same type of gun that came with the POC Dusty. When I first saw this gun, I really thought […]
