I’ve seen many fans lambasting the original G.I. Joe line, and most of their anger is directed towards “the 90’s”. Invariably, that entire decade gets blamed for the downfall of G.I. Joe, but I’ve often felt like 1990 itself was a fantastic year for G.I. Joe, and almost perfectly exemplified what the fans want.
The figures were all new characters, very cool military colors, tons of original accessories. Yes, 1990 was awesome. And amazing customizier extraordinaire “Bad Sociologist” is tackling 1990 head on, with “Project 1990”.
I’m not even that huge a fan of modern figures that perfectly resemble the classics, but holy crap, these just must be seen to be believed. The original thread is on HissTank.com, check out these amazing mirrored images below.
In a few short days, the attention of the Joe fandom will be focused on the Mouse’s Kingdom for the annual Collectors’ Convention. For some, this is a yearly pilgrimage. For, what seems of many, this will be the first of several conventions to come. Regardless, once again, welcome to the best four days on the calendar.
