Anyone who has visited my site for a while knows that while I don’t have much time to monkey with it, I’m a big fan of the G.I. Joe Trading Card Game. It came out a few years ago, and didn’t last long, but collecting the cards was a blast, and I’ve loved tracking down the hard to find stuff as well.
But perhaps the best thing to come out of the G.I. Joe TCG was that it spawned G.I. Joe: Firefight and Call to Valor, a fan-based creation that has taken the foundation of the Trading Card Game and ramped it up to the max. With custom fan art, new rules, new twists, and awesome intertwining themes, they’ve created full card expansions that are absolutely amazing!
And they’re not asleep at the wheel with the Rise of COBRA, either. To celebrate the film, G.I. Joe: Firefight has produced a special custom 12-card set featuring Rise of COBRA characters and themes. While the art is pulled from different promotional sources, and isn’t fan based this time around, the production values are still outstanding, and the cards are just great. Awesome work on their part.
