Holy Crap! Amazing diorama alert!

Yeah, I don’t even think I can really say anything that does justice to this Cobra Command Center of bad-assedness.

Really, it rocks.  There’s blood and everything.

Check it out at customfigurewars.com, and in some of the mirrored images below.  Absolutely insanely cool.  Lots more images available at the site itself:  customfigurewars.com.

Another flurry of Pursuit of Cobra images – PoC Beachhead

Taking no break since JoeCon, Gyre-Viper continues his Pursuit of Cobra onslaught, this time paying some attention to the incredible Pursuit of Cobra Beachhead.  Even as an unpainted test shot, the detail is amazing, and the accessories are simply mind-blowing.

I can’t tell you how excited I am for this excellent looking figure.  Check out the mirrored images below.

Yes, an even larger image of Duke from G.I. Joe: Renegades

Yes, you read that right!  GeneralsJoes can now be known as slightlylargerimagesofrenegadesduke.com…I’ve decided to devote all of the resources of the site to just finding images of Renegades Duke that are just a little bit bigger than the image I posted before.  Fun, eh?

In all seriousness, I was able to dig up an actual full size image of Duke in the upcoming G.I. Joe: Renegades animated series.  Imagine that?  Click the picture below for a full size image.

Now, there are a lot of cool things I see about this image.

  • Natural Proportions.  Granted, there is a slightly animated style to the character, but all in all, he’s got realistic proportions and a very natural look.
  • The colors.  Often the fandom’s main complaints center around the character’s appearance in the film or series.  Well, even though they’ve revamped the style a bit, Duke still has the tan shirt and green pants the fans have known him for.
  • The gun.  That’s one bad ass looking futuristic pistol.

As if you couldn’t tell, I’m getting excited for G.I. Joe: Renegades, and hoping things are heading on the right track.  Time will tell, but at least now we’ve got a slightly better look at the first piece of concept art from the series.
