Starting TONIGHT at 11:59pm Pacific Time the Loyal Subjects will be holding a special Black Friday sale, offering 40% off some upcoming products.
Included in those products are some very cool looking G.I. Joe exclusives, including a blue Baroness, Python Patrol, Glow in the Dark Snake Eyes, and an Arctic Firefly. For anyone who hasn’t gotten into them yet, you really need to check out their next generation of collectible articulated figures. They are VERY cool.
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.
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.
The first run of Loyal Subjects vinyl figures was pretty fun, I thought, and I ended up with most, if not all of them. Well, for this next iteration, the folks at Loyal Subjects are truly pulling out all the stops. Increased articulation, added detail and removable masks highlight some of the offerings, but that’s not all.
That’s right, VEHICLES. The Loyal Subjects have revealed a FANG, a VAMP, and a Watchtower to fit their vinyl figures. Amazing!
Over the past few days, we’ve seen some teasers from the Loyal Subjects about their next series of G.I. Joe themed toys, and by all indications, things are looking really awesome!
The first run through of Loyal Subjects product was pretty fun in a non-articulated vinyl figure kind of way (though to be fair, they did have some articulation) but this new iteration? It looks downright spectacular.
The guys from the Nerdrahtio Podcast took some time to talk with Jonathon Cathey from The Loyal Subjects who revealed some very cool news about the upcoming G.I. Joe line, as well as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Masters of the Universe. Some really great intel is in the recording, so you gotta check it out. We find out what to expect from the first two G.I. Joe waves. You don’t want to miss it!
Check out the latest episode right here, take a peek at all of their images here, and I’ve mirrored a couple of the G.I. Joe ones below. Great stuff!
One very cool licensed item that was debuted last year were some great mini figures by the Loyal Subjects. Packaged in blind boxes these unique items had some great chase figures as well as a really cool and unique design aesthetic.
