One piece of news that cannot go unnoticed is the latest in a line of Kickstarters by Robert Carson Mataxis of 3D Joes. Robert is in the final week of his Kickstarter for volumes 5 and 6 of Collecting the art of GI Joe. These volumes cover the years 1990-1994 and are a celebration of the painted art of GI Joe A Real American Hero. As of writing this post the Kickstarter has smashed its goal and currently sits at $35,830. You still have 6 days to get in on this Kickstarter and own a great piece of collecting art. Volume 5 will feature 158 unique pieces of art and will cover three years of material. Volume 6 will cover the last two years of figures, vehicles, playsets and peripheral painted art for G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero. It will also feature 20 pages of unreleased and international painted art.
Head over to Kickstarter before it’s over.
If you’re anything like me you’ve been fawning over 3DJoes fast and thorough documentation of the Real American Hero mythology through their revolutionary three dimensional photography technique. They’re closing the gap on 1993 currently, but still managed to make some time to work on a great and hilarious stop motion video entitled Joes’ Anatomy. Part 1 has been posted to YouTube featuring a great cast of characters, terrific set design, and a really funny script.
Its great stuff, and considering this is just “Part 1” here’s hoping for many more to come. I’m on the edge of my seat!
Check out 3DJoes.com for the archives I was talking about, and the video is embedded below.
Wow, this is very cool.
With the online G.I. Joe community being around for so long, it’s not often that something truly revolutionary emerges. Well, it has here. Got word via Twitter from CarsonMataxis about a new G.I. Joe fansite on the web… 3DJoes.com.
The site features fully three dimensional galleries of figures and vehicles from G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero. So far it’s just 1982, but it is a pretty amazing and cool experience.
Here’s hoping to continues driving forward. I can’t wait to see some awesome 1993 Battle Corps neon in 3D on my computer screen! Check it out right here.
