2016 G.I. JOE LINEUP ALMOST REVEALED

Looks like we are going to see some new Joes and Cobras at JoeCon this year!

Just announced on Hasbro’s Pulse;

Fans Challenged With Hintless Crossword Puzzle

Hasbro is gearing up for the 2016 G.I. Joe series, and Hasbro Pulse is excited to host an intriguing peek at the first brand-endorsed look at the entire line. 2016 will kick off with an exclusive set (available at San Diego Comic Con) and then a series available exclusively at Toys R Us and Entertainment Earth. The eighteen figures slated for 2016 are all arranged in the crossword puzzle below, including the Kindle Worlds Fan Choice figure Stiletto – the only character previously announced in this year’s lineup. The rest of the puzzle is up to the fans to fill in, and NONE of the names have been given any clues or hints.

We realize that offering up a crossword puzzle with zero name hints is pretty rough, but we’re certain that even obscure hints would get sniffed out quickly by our diehard Joe collectors. Instead, fans have a chance to collaborate and discuss before the correct puzzle is revealed this year at the G.I. Joe Collectors’ Convention in Loveland, Colorado. Come to the Hasbro Brand Panel on Saturday, June 18th to see the puzzle revealed and also get your first peek at the G.I. Joe prototype figures for 2016!

From the workbench of Miles Mayhem

Here comes the big surprise project of 2016!!!! Very proud to reveal my Sky Falcon VTOL. Based off of a Cobra Hurricane, I hacked off the weird spoiler & replaced the boosters with shaved Swampmasher wheels. I feel these two small tweaks set it apart instantly. This one also sports a custom chrome finish done by Concepts In Chrome, and paint done by myself. Stickers are from Toyhax & are from various kits. I always liked the Hurricane, but felt the colors were odd and it needed to be Sky Patrolled!!

One of my favorite figures from what was my golden years of GI JOE, and as it happens the first custom I ever attempted and while my early work won me some kudos more importantly it gave me the encouragement that propelled me on my current path, so I wanted to do an update to that figure worthy of the else and other filling my shelves. Hope you folks enjoy my take on a classic, I give you my modern Tele-Viper.

[CUSTOMS] ARAH Shockwave (Siege Breaker) by Dark Perceptor

 Customs  Comments Off on [CUSTOMS] ARAH Shockwave (Siege Breaker) by Dark Perceptor
Oct 212015
 

“The Siege Breakers are the GI Joe’s tactical urban infiltration team; composed of men and women who specialize in urban combat using stealth, subterfuge, sabotage, and guerrilla warfare in cities occupied by Cobra’s Dominion Forces.”

“I’ve wanted to do a Shockwave custom for what seems like forever… he has always been one of my favorite figures from the ARAH era. So when I set out to make an urban squad, Shockwave was a must-include… his SWAT background and DEF experience make him an ideal member of the Siege Breakers. For this custom, I started with his original bulky torso and a similar color scheme to Wreckage… but after a “short” break, I decided that he’d look too much like his Nightforce or Convention counterparts and set about to make some changes. I thought the Marauders vest would be ideal for a door-kicker, and so neeeded a slimmer torso to accomodate the vest. AVAC’s torso not only fit the size requirements, but gives the look of an armored BDU, imo. (hey, i’m no expert, lol) Then I decided to go with urban camo, just because I need to do more camo… and I think it turned out alright. There’s one or two tweaks I’d like to go back and do… but for now, it’s on to the next piece. Thanks for looking, I hope you enjoy. “
