Introducing… SK Omega

While I’m waiting for the Joe images to upload, I wanted to post an update to the project I mentioned from Molten Monkey International a couple of days ago…  I had a chance to take a good look at some of their potential offerings and talk to the brains behind the outfit a bit, and this sounds like the real deal.

This is what we know so far:

  • 3 3/4″ Figures
  • O-ring style with screws in the back, metal rivets, metal T-bars
  • High quality vehicles with a very 80’s “feel”
  • Elaborate, intricate, well detailed tooling
  • The goal is to have a vintage figure vibe mixed with a very modern day aesthetic for a good bridge between the two.  They want to appeal to both audiences
  • Production is in the very early stages, hoping for product launch middle of 2011
  • Figures, comic, and animation all hitting
  • Main figure and vehicle designers are Ron Rudat and Guy Cassady, two of the brightest brains behind the original Real American Hero line

GeneralsJoes also took a ton of pictures and video for the upcoming product, which you can check out below.

This looks like an exceptionally cool toyline that’s worth keeping an eye out for.  GeneralsJoes will work to get all of the latest information as it becomes available!

JoeCon 2010 – Where the news at?

I know for it being a JoeCon weekend, GeneralsJoes has been noticably silent, but trust me that’s only because it’s been a very busy few days.  When not taking tours and volunteering for the club, I’m being dragged to restaurants and bars and forced to consume various amounts of food and liquids that are totally alien to me.  Trust me, after one of those sessions, you don’t want to see me typing.

Anyway…  news has been pretty quiet to date.  There’s not a whole lot more to report.  I’ve got photos of the showroom preparing to upload, but most of it is what we’ve seen before.

However…  Hasbro is kicking off their seminar tomorrow, and it promises to be full of new information about G.I. Joe: Renegades, other 2011 plans, and there should be some new product to check out as well.

Eagle eyed picture watchers have hopefully located a new Spirit figure in various diorama pictures already.  But if not…

Looks like he’s a combination of other parts, but a pretty awesome combination.  I promise more good stuff is coming, it just hasn’t hit yet.
