GeneralsJoes Reviews 50th Anniversary Gung Ho and Shadow Guard

Saving the best for last?

Like his fellow Marine, Leatherneck last year, Gung Ho was overdue for an updated modern figure, though many would argue Gung Ho’s need was far more drastic than his 1986 era teammate. I would agree.

I think most of us would also agree that Gung Ho’s update meets all of those lofty expectations.

GeneralsJoes Reviews 50th Anniversary Croc Master & Blowtorch

While I admit to not being all that excited about the unreleased concept art Blowtorch and Python Patrol Croc Master, I’m glad to see that many collectors who desired those two figures are being satisfied.

Do a pair of new paint deco’s make up for any shortcomings from 25th Anniversary era figure builds?  Check out my 50th Anniversary Review Page or click the links below to see for yourself!

New press images for upcoming Loyal Subjects G.I. Joe items

Over on the Official Loyal Subjects Facebook group, a great selection of new press images has been revealed for upcoming G.I. Joe product and it looks insanely cool.  A great mixture of vinyl style and articulation (with removable accessories to boot!) this looks like a pretty huge step forward in the vinyl figure concept.

They also showed images of the FANG (with rotating copter blades) and the Watchtower (with rotating gun and movable spotlight).  These mini accessories can actually fit the figures!  Pretty crazy looking stuff.

Check out the images below, and keep watching and the Loyal Subjects Facebook Group for the latest info!  Also, the NerdRAHtio podcast posted an interview with Loyal Subjects designer Joe Allard recently, you should absolutely check that out, too.

Vitruvian HACKS first test shot images look as amazing as you’d expect

Being the big fan of Boss Fight Studio that I am, I’ve been eagerly anticipating some new images of the upcoming Vitruvian HACKS figures, and this morning we all received a nice Kickstarter update surprise!

Fresh from the factory, they’ve posted some great images of the First Shots of their upcoming releases, which they can sample, test, and make suggested changes for.  The process is cruising right along and this will be a big step out of the way!

I can’t wait to get these bad boys in hand.  Check out the images below.  The detail on these figures is incredible.  Look at those snakes in Stheno’s hair. Wowzers.

Kickstarter Update:

Hey Boss-Figthers!

We thought we’d give you guys a look at an exciting part of the process that’s rarely seen by consumers. Below is a gallery of the first shot samples of Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. These are some of the very first samples out of the molds, and while they’re shot in random colors, and look a little rough right now, we’re exceptionally pleased with the level of detail that came through! The fit and function issues will get there in short order through a detailed comments process. We’ll have more polished samples (and better pics!) soon, but until then, please enjoy!

(PS: There’s a couple Marauder Task Force figures and accessories in there for scale reference and fun!)
