I think by now everyone knows how much I love the 90’s era of G.I. Joe, and that certainly includes Battle Corps. Even with their sometimes bright colors, the designs meshed military realism with futuristic technology beautifully and are an almost perfect example of what I look for in G.I. Joe. Figures like Stalker, Lifeline, the Cobra Viper, and many others throughout those last two years of G.I. Joe’s life deserve far more credit than they generally get.
So imagine my excitement when Oreobuilder, a customizer who I have some love for already, kicks off “Battle Corps Month” where he’s tackling the wide ranging Battle Corps cast of characters in modern era custom form. This is going to be fantastic.
He started this project off on the Oreobuilder’s Blog and JoeCustoms.com and already has Lifeline, Stalker, Shipwreck, and Duke wrapped up and promises many more updates throughout the month. I am on pins and needles waiting to see the rest. Big kudos to Oreobuilder for jumping into this neglected part of G.I. Joe history, and giving it some genuine street cred with his awesome customs.
