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!
