IDW keeps the G.I. Joe truck driving along with Larry Hama’s illustrious return to the G.I. Joe universe in G.I. Joe: Origins!  Issue #1 comes out tomorrow, and as usual, Phil from JoeReloaded has posted a number of pages on his forum here.

Chris Ryall also posted the covers to all five issues on his Ryall Time blog:

Kick ass custom of the week – Night Raven/Skywarp

Wow!  I can appreciate a good custom, but every once in a rare while I get smacked in the face with total awesomeness and just need to take a little step back.  This is one of those times.

Dr. Vile over at Hisstank.com has done an absolutely incredible G.I. Joe/Transformers combination custom using a Night Raven and Unicron.  This thing is pure insanity.  Check it out here.  The definition of “kick ass custom”.

EDIT: I thought non-members could view the images on Hisstank these days, but someone tells me that’s not the case.  I’ve mirrored the images below:

Resolute 5-Pack pics on JoeBattleLines

CmderinChief has posted a few threads on JBL with some in-hand pics of the new Resolute 5-Pack.  Check ’em out:

A pretty cool looking set, I have to say.  I was very lukewarm on it when I first saw it a couple of months ago, but it has really grown on me over time.  The COBRA Trooper and Officer are both unique in a good way (though I would have loved to have them in bluer colors).  I’ve gone on record with how much I love the B.A.T. as well.  COBRA Commander is all right, but Duke definitely steals the show by a wide margin.  I love the colors, love the accessories, love the overall look.  Very “Sigma 6” which is a good thing in my book.  Looking forward to getting this set in hand.
