The Fog of Dreams, my first non-G.I. Joe novel, now available for pre-order on Amazon!

Indulge me if you will…

Obviously, if you’re coming here, you’re a G.I. Joe fan as am I, and I believe you’re familiar with the fact that I’ve been writing G.I. Joe fiction.

Well, I’d like to take a moment to announce that next Tuesday my brand new novel will be released, and it’s my first piece of non-G.I. Joe fiction to be published! It’s the beginning of my own little universe, my own little crowded section of the publishing world.

And honestly, I think it’s something that G.I. Joe fans will really enjoy.

The paperback is available now, the Kindle version is open for pre-orders, ready for delivery August 11th (next Tuesday). I’m extremely excited about this (although admittedly, also nervous) and hope that anyone who is interested will give it a chance.

It will also be available via Kindle Unlimited next week.

I’ll try not to clog this feed with sales pitches for my non-G.I. Joe stuff, but I’ll warn everyone up front, it will get mentioned from time to time. Hopefully no one minds too much.

Wolf’s Head Publishing Debuts First Book Series – ‘Operation: Harvest’ | PRLog

Released for pre-order on August 1st, local publishing company announces the first novel from captivating new trilogy series.

PRLogAug. 6, 2015LEBANON, N.H.Known as the “self-publishing revolution”, many smaller publishing companies are making their debut to the public and Wolf’s Head Publishing is no exception. Justin Bell is the owner of said company that was created as a launching point for his own series of thriller-based books.

“The basic premise is that anyone can become a small publisher. You call the shots. You retain the rights to your book and you take home a bigger royalty than you’d normally get from a traditional publisher – if you sell any books,” notes CNET’s David Carnoy in a recent article.

While the publishing business may be tedious for some, Bell has made it clear that he’s up for the challenge. After getting his start in writing for the G.I. Joe Universe for the Amazon Kindle Worlds platform (http://www.amazon.com/Justin-Bell/e/B00K3U3EE6), Bell’s own works have become one the most popular making the author one of the highest selling writers in that category.

His first novel in the upcoming “Operation: Harvest” trilogy is titled “The Fog of Dreams” and is classified as a “thriller and suspense genre” novel. The book boasts strong action and military elements. Bell’s novels in the “Operation: Harvest” trilogy feature genetic manipulation and conspiracy theory as overarching themes throughout the entire trilogy, as well as the strong bond between family; especially fathers and children.

“The main hero, William Strickland, is willing to do anything and everything to find his missing daughters, even if it means going up against the United States government themselves,” explains Bell. “I’ve dreamt of being a writer for my entire life, and couldn’t be more excited that the opportunity to realize that dream has finally arrived. I truly believe that the adventures will provide the same level of entertainment to the readers that they have been to the author for the past several years. On behalf of myself and Wolf’s Head Publishing as a whole, I can’t wait to get this story out to the world.”

The 332-page suspense novel is now available on Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/Fog-Dreams-Operation-Harvest-Book-e…) as of August 1st, 2015 for only $12.99, with its launch set for other digital book stores in the coming weeks. Kindle Unlimited subscribers can borrow the book for free as well. The novel is available both digitally or in print for customers. Bell is hoping that the birth of his own universe will provide stories and characters that will captivate readers for years to come.

About the company:

Founded in 2014, Wolf’s Head Publishing was created as the springboard for a new series of suspense and thriller novels. Originally developed as a self-publishing company for author Justin Bell’s works, the hope is for it to evolve into something larger. Its mission is to bring exciting action, superhero, and suspense novels to a growing reader base that is desperate for new entertainment.

The company’s owner and lead author, Justin Bell, has been writing for most of his life, with works in everything from fiction to technical education, news stories, and online blog and opinion posts.

Cool new Loyal Subjects Fang Gyro Copter revealed!

I’ve talked a little bit about the awesome looking new Loyal Subjects G.I. Joe product, and also mentioned they’re not just doing figures, but also vehicles.  Well, we’ve got a great first look at one of those vehicles.

Over on Facebook, Johnathon Cathey from the Loyal Subjects showed off a first look at the FANG Gyro Copter!

Thanks to Diana Davis for directing me towards a cool little movie as well.  Check out the video here.

Marauder Task Force “Valkyries” are now live on Kickstarter!

Our first glimpse of these great looking new figures came via concept art from the New Jersey Collectors Con, and now the Kickstarter is officially live!

At the moment, we still just have that great Boss Fight Studio artwork to go by, but the folks at Marauder promise that they will be posting images of prototype figures and paint masters as the campaign goes on! You can bet we’ll be reporting on any new information as this progresses.

The Kickstarter fired off at just before midnight last night and as of this writing already has 43% of its main funding in the bag! WOW! That’s great news, too, because there are some amazing stretch goals here.

Check out the Marauder Task Force Valkyrie Kickstarter and throw them some support. If the first run of Marauder Task Force is any indication, these will be some great additions to your 1:18 scale action figure collection.

It’s official – Toy Soldiers go to war August 11th!

Wait… that’s like a week from now!

The wait is almost over, Joe fans, Ubisoft’s exciting new game Toy Soldiers: War Chest is almost here!  Watch G.I. Joe and Cobra face off against those insidious men in furry shorts as well as Assassins Creed and other various licensed properties.  We’ve showcased many of the videos here before, check them out below, and click the link afterwards for the full press release!

So who’s buying a Next Gen console for this thing?

Boss Fight Studio reveals Ultimate Spartan NJCC Exclusive

Lots of news coming out of New Jersey Collectors Con today!  Not only did we see the first reveal of the Marauder Task Force “Valkyries”, but we also hear that the Kickstarter will launch tomorrow!

Along with this, Boss Fight Studio has revealed a special NJCC Exclusive “Ultimate Spartan” figure!  This figure will come with a wide assortment of accessories in gold deco, and a special “battle worn” deco.  It’s an amazing looking figure.  Check out some of the images below, courtesy of John from JoeCustoms.com and Craig from the Boss Fighters Facebook Group.

 

 

First look at concept art for Marauder Task Force “Valkyries”

The Valkyries have been getting teased for a short while, although until now, nobody really knew what the Valkyrie project was.  Since Valkyries are legendary female warriors, I think most folks figured it would be a female buck for the Marauder Task Force line, and it looks like most folks were right!

Today at New Jersey Collectors Con, Boss Fight Studio and Marauder themselves are in attendance (so stop reading this and GO TO CHERRY HILL, NJ!) and they have revealed the first concept art of the Valkyrie project!  Pretty exciting stuff.

HissTank.com’s Facebook Page has posted the first images, and I’m pretty excited.  Not only are there some new female bucks, but there are plenty of great new weapons that will work for all figures, and there looks to be a new male figure as well.  The male figure has rolled up sleeves, a great looking armored torso and what appear to be different legs.

Keep in mind this is all concept art, so things could certainly change, but we’re definitely off on the right track here.  Check out the mirrored images below, and if you’re anywhere near Cherry Hill, NJ, make your way to NJCC.  I’ve been there before, and it’s a blast.

Happy Hasbro Toy Shop Day!

But really, is anything about this day happy?

Today marks the day that Hasbro ComicCon exclusives go on sale on HasbroToyShop.com, and it’s a day that lives in infamy.

Typically these items go on sale around 9:30 – 10:30am Eastern Time, but only the gods of HasbroToyShop themselves can know for sure.

I know in years’ past, folks typically put a search string in for “SDCC” or “ComicCon” and kept hitting refresh to get a head start on when those categories might have product.  I have no idea if this will work, but if you want to give it a shot;

Again, no promises that any of those search algorithms will help…  but it’s wortha  shot.

Just as a reminder – the Desert Duel ComicCon Exclusive set was a joint Toys “R” Us/ComicCon exclusive and will NOT be available on HasbroToyShop. If you’re preparing your F5 fingers today it’ll be for the Crimson Strike set or the Slaughter Marauder/Iron Grenadier Kre-O set.

Gentlemen, start your refreshing!
