GeneralsJoes Holiday Buying Guide

You may have noticed the little banner off to the left.  I have posted a GeneralsJoes Holiday Buying Guide with links to my various sponsors as well as some links to Amazon and Sideshow Collectibles products that G.I. Joe fans might find interesting.

I’m open for any other ideas, so please let me know if there is anything you’d like listed here.

Assembly Required 2012 – AVAC’s Lab Terror Drome diorama

I don’t think the pictures even do this thing justice….  I talked about Assembly Required from the Codename: Iowa guys last week, and one of the showcases of that even was, without a doubt, the diorama by customizer/genius AVAC.  He’s famous for his HISS Tank themed and construction vehicle themed customs, but this diorama set totally goes above and beyond.  It’s simply spectacular.

These images were featured on HissTank.com, and the video was shared by the Codename: Iowa Facebook page that really shows the size, scale, and scope of this amazing diorama.

All I can say is I wanna play with this thing!  Just imagine the dio-story potential here… wow.

Check out the images and the embedded video below.  I think this qualifies as a Kick Ass Custom, to be sure.

Don’t forget you can also hit up the Codename: Iowa Goodsmiths store and pick up some of the great exclusive pieces they had for sale at the show.

Preview of IDW Publishing Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow #19

The Target: Snake Eyes event continues, which looks to wrap up the current iteration of the IDW G.I. Joe edition until 2013.  There will likely be a final wrap up, but somewhat ominously, when new writer Fred Van Lente was asked where Snake Eyes was in the next step of IDW’s G.I. Joe evolution, he simply said “Read Snake Eyes’ book“.

So, what do you think, kids?  Something drastic coming?  Check out the preview below as we hurdle closer to a potential universe-defining event in Target: Snake Eyes!
