Sideshow Collectibles debuts insanely cool looking 12″ Crimson Guard!

Woah!  Rocking some pleather action, the Cobra Elite Trooper, Crimson Guard makes his Sideshow Collectibles 12″ figure debut, and from the quick peek it looks very cool!  With an awesome leathery uniform texture, he instantly stands out from the other Cobra Troopers and automatically generates an “elite” feel.

Excellent.  Check out the mirrored image below, and hit up Sideshow Collectibles to check it out as well.

An Exclusive product reveal will appear in the Production Blog on October 4th, with pre-orders beginning on October 6th.  Something tells me this guy will be a hot commodity.  Don’t hesitate on this one.

Excellent addition to Mike Thompson’s art blog portfolio – Alley-Viper!

Yesterday, with thanks to GeekIJoe and Greg from What’s on Joe Mind, I posted a link to Mike Thompson’s WordPress blog, which showcased a lot of his great painted artwork for G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra toys…and today he celebrates the added interest by posting another fantastic piece!

This time around, we get a great look at the process behind the Alley-Viper, packaged with the Cobra Fury.  Initially slated to be released within the confines of The Rise of Cobra, it ended up emerging with the Pursuit of Cobra line, and the Alley-Viper was an awesome addition.

Yet another terrific piece of work, which you can check out right here!  Great stuff.
