Last week, the folks from Marauder posted some fantastic color mock up images from their Logan and Julie “stretch goal” figures, remarking that they should be pretty close to what the final samples look like.
Well, the illustrator of those images, Stephan reached out to me with larger versions of the two mock ups! Check them out below, and be sure to hit up Fundafull if you want to keep the pre-order spirit alive for the Marauder Task Force!
Over the past several months, Zica Toys has been releasing many vintage themed action figures, with the Six Million Dollar Man toys getting the most mainstream attention (that I’ve seen).
A while ago, I had reported that they had obtained the license for Captain Action, and had said they would be producing vintage style figures, in the same vein as the old school G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero toys. Well, obviously this caught my eye, and many other eyes as well.
For the first time, over on their Facebook page, Zica Toys has revealed a digital image of this upcoming Captain Action figure, which does look reminiscent of the G.I. Joe figures of old, though the waist joint certainly doesn’t quite look the same. Also, there is no familiar “Swivel Arm Battle Grip”, however, there is a swivel above the bicep/tricep according to Zica Toys. The figure will also apparently have double jointed knees and elbows, though. Check out the digital image below, and be sure to keep watching the Zica Toys Facebook Page for any updates!
It’s been all over the web, so I figure most of my readers are aware of it already, but Jack passed it along to me, so I figured I’d spread the word as well. If you have an eBay account, you’ll want to change those passwords. Their security systems were apparently illegally accessed within the past week or two, and the depth of the infiltration is currently unknown.
Of course, the process for changing your password isn’t real simple either. Check out CNet.com for a nice tutorial on how to do just that.
Remember all that agonizing lead up time to issue #200 of G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero? Can you believe we’re posting solicitations for issue #205 already? Time flies, huh?
Apparently August is still too early for the “Fall of G.I. Joe”, so we see the aforementioned #205 along with the second issue of Transformers and G.I. Joe. Check out the full solicitations list after the jump.
