G I Joe Renegades Unused Concept Art

Around this time 4 years ago, G. I Joe: Renegades fans were getting ready for the final episode of the series in just three weeks’ time. It was sad to see it go. We never saw it returning back from the “hiatus” and we never had a new G. I. Joe series on the telly since.

Speaking of what we never had… here’s a bunch of G. I Joe: Renegades Concept Art which never made it to the show. Artist Jeff Johnson has shared these on his Deviant Art page and on his Facebook profile. Some of the art are actually dating back to 2010 but they have flown under our radar. It was thanks to Facebook user John Simcoe that we got to know about them.

Enjoy the images, after the jump.

On behalf of all of us here on HissTank.com, we’d like to wish our Members & visitors a very happy and healthy Independence Day! If you’re not from the United States, no worries, you can celebrate along with us!

The Fourth of July, or Independence Day, is a federal holiday here in the U.S. that celebrates the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. It’s a day where we Americans give thanks for our Independence, mostly by cooking out with family and friends, enjoying a frosty beverage and blowing stuff up, of course! ‘Murica!

Whatever you find yourself doing this weekend, please make sure to be safe! Also, if you’re a pet owner, don’t forget that this weekend will make them think that they’re experiencing the end of times, so make sure to give them a few extra treats and head pats to calm them down. If you enjoy a fireworks show, make sure to take pics and share them here with us!
