Another clearer image of Roadblock’s body armor from G.I. Joe: Retaliation

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is on another one of this little photo binges, this time shooting a much clearer image than yesterday.  We get a great look at his layered body armor this time around with a cool stenciled “R” on the chest and the same trusty knife sheath we saw before.

Looking a bit more different than the standard Reactive Armor from the Rise of Cobra, bit still retaining some clear elements (the angular chest plates for instance) it’s a very cool transitional look.  Still really digging it.

Insanely cool G.I. Joe sculpting mock ups from freelance sculptor

So a couple of weeks ago it was the now famous Mike Thompson.  Yesterday, over on Twitter, Airborne4584 let me know about a supposedly unreleased G.I. Joe figure that a contract sculptor had posted on their Facebook page.

Well, that sculptor’s name is Matt Brouillard, and he has a wealth of awesome sculpted figures visible in his photo album.  Some crazy stuff in there.  Apparently he’s the master mind behind the G.I. Joe: Resolute Duke and Destro, but he also sculpted some Rise of Cobra items, including an absolutely gorgeous unreleased figure.

The sculptor says it’s a driver from a canceled 4 x 4, but did not reveal additional details.  According to some folks, this was going to be Clutch (the head is just a place holder).  Regardless of who it was, it is an absolutely awesome looking figure that clearly deserves a place in the G.I. Joe line somewhere.

Without knowing if Hasbro actually tooled anything up, there is no evidence that this figure will ever see the light day (the sculpt is just a wax sample) but it is still awesome to look at.  Truly impressive.  Check out the mirrored images below, and look at the second-to-last image for a slightly different Rise of Cobra Firefly helmet, and the last picture is the incredibly cool looking vehicle driver.  Great stuff.

GI Joe Collectors Club Subscription figure Dice revealed!!

Oh YEAH.  Nice!!  The G.I. Joe Collectors Club has revealed their latest subscription figure, and it is the infamous Cobra Ninja Force member…  DICE!

We’ve seen this gear used throughout other ninja based figures in the Anniversary and Pursuit of Cobra line, but it looks a hell of a lot cooler all put together on top of the purple figure.  It looks excellent.

The G.I. Joe Collectors Club revealed the image on their Twitter feed, and you can see the image mirrored below.

Okay… now I need Slice!!  For more information about the G.I. Joe Collectors Club subscription service, click here.
