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 workshop of Lowlight27:

“A commission for Cobra Oner. I was inspired by three of my favorite Customizers, Keepitclean Customs, Boris Ping, and Vitruvian Pro. The build recipe is a POC jungle Duke torso, POC hawk upper arms, Ult. Flint lower arms, and a casted Footloose head courtesy of Tofujesse. The body armor is a Steel Brigade vest with added pouches as well. Please let me know why you think…”

11th Annual Action Figure Expo September 28th Meet Larry Hama

Thanks to OG13 member Ooyah for the heads up! Larry Hama will be attending the Action Figure Expo next weekend in Toronto.

2014 Guest Information

larry-hamaLARRY HAMA
Larry Hama is best known to fans as writer of the Marvel Comics licensed series G.I. Joe, based on the Hasbro line of military action figures. Hama said in a 2006 interview that he was given the job by then editor-in-chief Jim Shooter after every other writer at Marvel had turned it down. Hama at the time had recently pitched a Nick Fury: Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. spin-off series, Fury Force, about a special mission force. Hama used this concept as the back-story for G.I. Joe. He included military terms and strategies, Eastern philosophy, martial arts and historical references from his own background. The comic ran 155 issues (February 1982-October 1994).

Hama also wrote the majority of the G.I. Joe action figures’ file cards—short biographical sketches designed to be clipped from the G.I. Joe and Cobra cardboard packaging.[9] In 2007 these filecards were reprinted in the retro packaging for the G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero 25th Anniversary line.

At the 11th Annual Action Figure Expo Mr. Hama will be signing and meeting with the attendees as day long.

GI Joe Reloaded Day 1 – with MSWI

Good day and welcome everyone!
We are proud and honored to share with you our concept creations, our fan boy visions of “new character additions” (and vehicles too) to the G.I. Joe universe. With this project, we focused on the good guys, the new recruits of G.I. Joe Reloaded Program.
In doing this project, there were many sleepless nights. We even worked on our customs in between real life work, and some of us wrote the bios while in the bathroom just to meet the deadline! We gave plenty of time and effort to this project. We had fun and it was all worth it. The friendship that has been forged among our fellow artists is priceless. Now we hope you enjoy as we finally give you…

Let’s start off DAY 1 with a BANG. Here is one of the industry’s top customizer, MSWI! With his creations, Lockdown and War Eagle!

Street/Sewer Dio by Cobra Oner

custom customs

So I had this idea for a diorama that my Joes and Cobras could be photographed in/on, but the only skills I possess when it comes to building is Popsicle sticks. Luckily that is where CobraOner came in with his incredible talent and artistic ability and created a masterpiece. I came up with a sketch I had in mind of a shoebox size diorama where the street is the top of the box and the bottom part is a sewer.  CobraOner was able to take my idea and make it into what you see in front of you. I can’t wait to get this piece in my basement and start setting up some scenes for all of you. Thank you again to CobraOner for turning my simple sketch into a diorama for the ages! -Lowlight27

That’s right, one of the most talented casters out there has invited the members of OG13 to visit his store,  http://vortiouscustomaccessories.ecrater.com/

One thing that sets Vortious apart from the other casters is that, ” I’ve mastered the hidden peg technique, so with the exception of a couple of items (usually too large to be done effectively, or efficiently) the hinge jointed parts you order from my store don’t need to have pegs pushed into a hole, and come assembled (the hinge joint only). Also I’m the guy who bought the parts that Stocos had, so any of the items that disappeared when Stocos shut down you’ll find in my store. ”

So join us in welcoming Vortious to our family and place an order today!
