Some awesome G.I. Joe: Renegades production artwork unveiled

Wow!  An awesome blast from the past.  Big thanks to GeneralsJoes Twitter comrade Twitziller for uncovering this excellent blog from production artist April Eriksson, who apparently did some vehicle design work for G.I. Joe: Renegades.

She posted her artwork this past summer, and so far it has flown under the radar.  No longer!

Check out her awesome blog with G.I. Joe: Renegades and other artwork right here.  Also check out the mirrored images below.  SWEET!

 

A little insight to some future Sideshow Collectible G.I. Joe offerings?

Sideshow Collectibles has been giving us their “Ask Sideshow” Q & A’s for a while now, but it appears they’ve moved their operations to Facebook.  In a post put up on Saturday, Sideshow reflects on an interesting G.I. Joe related question and an equally interesting answer:‎

“Question: When can we expect to see Great Joes like Snow Job, Mutt w/Junkyard,and Gung-Ho?

Answer: Of the Joes that we would like to tackle next, you’ve named two of our favorite four. Shipwreck is missing from your list, but who has the other slot? Hmmm…

So it certainly sounds like Shipwreck is on deck, and likely one other of the three above figures listed.  Any thoughts or opinions?  Check out the Sideshow Collectibles Facebook page and hit ’em up with a “Like” to stay up to date on all Sideshow news and info.

Planet-Pulp reveals some potential future G.I. Joe covers?

Planet-Pulp is a terrific comic art site where artists can submit pieces in various stages of completion, and often work appears here in sketch form.  Well, it just so happens that Robert Atkins is one of the folks who submits work to this site, and he recently posted a few images that just might be some covers to future IDW issues!

Looking at these sketches, a certain Cobra Ninja plays a very big part, which is awesome to see.  We haven’t seen nearly enough Snake Eyes vs. Storm Shadow conflict in the modern IDW universe, so I like how things are looking.

You can see Robert Atkin’s great work right here.

And Robert’s not the only one!  There’s a bunch of other very cool G.I. Joe themed artwork prevalent throughout the site, too.  It’s definitely worth a look.
