Acid Rain Japan Defense Laurel 01 HissTank

Our friend and Acid Rain World creator, recently updated the Official Acid Rain World Instagram page with images of new Vehicles & Mechs! These updates revolve around repaints of already established vehicles/mechs, but with that said, these are absolutely fantastic. It’s unknown yet whether or not these will be exclusive offerings, but there some “standard release” items mixed in, so let’s check them all out!

First up is a repaint of the Acid Rain Raptor Speeder Mk I. The new deco is a purple and white “Royal Milk” Chocolate factory design and includes a pilot very similar to what will be released with the Laurel. The Instagram page gives us an scenario behind the repaint – In the Acid Rain World, Chocolate is valued as high as Diamonds. As such, the “Royal Milk Chocolate Factory” has it’s own security forces…and it would be wise not to approach too closely.

Next is a “Japan Defense” version of the upcoming Laurel Mech Suit! This repaint is fantastic, presenting an all white Laurel with the classic “Japanese Rising Sun” emblem and of course, the level of detail and weathering that we’ve come to expect from all Acid Rain product.

While on the topic of the Laurel, also included in the images are a new mock up of the upcoming Worker Laurel, an all yellow mech suit that immediately reminds one of the Power Loader from Aliens! There’s also a close up image of some of the detailing work on one of the Laurel Mech suits. Again, the attention to detail is top notch!

Finally in this round of updates, there’s a side-by-side size comparison pic of a Raptor Mk I and the upcoming Acid Rain Flak Bike. The Flak Bike is nearly twice the size of the Raptor and will make a great addition to any Acid Rain and/or G.I.Joe collection.

We’ve mirrored the images here for your review, but make sure to follow the Official Acid Rain World Instagram for more images! Join us after the break to check out the latest assortment and to talk all things Acid Rain World!

 

 

 

007 GIJOE FSS 3 Alpine Mountain Trooper

Alpine scales mountains piton bt piton, overcoming granite and gravity with pure muscle and persistence. That’s why the G.I. Joe team sends him up first on all vertical assaults. He truly enjoys the challenge of the most hazardous of all conditions: climbing sheer cliffs, in unfavorable weather, weighted down by gear, with Cobra shooting at him!

“What I do is an attempt to defy gravity.”

cryptid toys skeleton 6 inch turns

Cryptid Toys has updated with new information on their new 6″ Inch Skeleton Digital Sculpt and new images of the Soldier Accessories. Cryptid Toys has also added a photo showing how some of their parts will be compatible with Marvel Legends.

With the “Army Alphas” line from Cryptid Toys, you can finally build YOUR army, YOUR way!

Cryptid Toys will deliver the intricately sculpted, super articulated 1/12 scale (6″) action figures that the collector community craves. Having been an action figure collector, customizer, and enthusiast for many years, I decided it was time to make the jump to an action figure manufacturer since toy companies were not producing the figures that many collectors have been clamoring for. Working with some of the most talented sculptors in the business who have not only worked on some of the most popular brands, but also with leaders in the industry, these figures will be brought to life from concepts to high quality action figures.

001 GIJOE FSS 3 Vypra Cobra Ninja

Vypra allegedly offered her services to Cobra Commander as a mercenary and intelligence courier by audaciously sneaking into his private business meeting at Extensive Enterprises. Intrigued by her boldness, and needing a trustworthy delivery agent in an organization comprised of backstabbing opportunists, he provided her with an encrypted data package for delivery to Night Creeper Leader at his heavily guarded temple. Performing the task easily and ahead of schedule, she was then granted access to choose her own method of conveyance from the Cobra motor pool for any future mission.

“No enemy stall stay me from a swift delivery guarantee!”

GI Joe Star Brigade Robo Joe HissTank

The Official Hasbro G.I. Joe Club has sent out an e-mail regarding this year’s custom class. For those of you that are attending the class, or for those that are interested in what this year’s custom figure will be, you will have the ability to create the G.I.Joe Star Brigade Jet-Tech Operations Expert, Robo-JOE! Below are the details from the e-mail –

———-

Hey Class Participants,
This year’s character is Robo Joe. Parts for this figure build that you will receive in the class are:

1) Class exclusive (only available to participants) NEW 3d designed Robo Joe head
2) Class exclusive (only available to participants) NEW 3d designed Robo Joe face mask
3) Custom designed upper torso
4) Custom designed upper arms with shoulder rings
5) Auto .9mm Pistol with thigh peg mount
6) Right Outside Thigh with pistol mount peg hole
7) Sub-Machine Gun
8) Aliens style Pulse Rifle with backpack peg mount

All parts are cast in the proper base colors (orange, black, flesh, clear), so you will only have to paint details and parts on your donor figure. The figure that we suggest you bring is one of the three versions of the G.I. Joe Rise of COBRA Accelerator Suit. The more common versions are Duke and Ripcord. Corey at Smalljoes.com has a decent supply of Ripcord for $12.99 and has fast shipping if needed.

In the class, you will learn how to split a torso, and prep and assemble your custom cast original parts for painting. There will be a few people on hand to help with any novice builders, but more experienced customizers should have no problems. Paints, glue, and other supplies are provided. If you have a favorite brush or paints that you prefer to use, then feel free to bring those along. The class will be in the lower level of the Prairie Capital Convention Center. You can go down stairs at the hotel and take the tunnel. Starts at 8:30 AM. Please arrive 15 minutes early!

See you in Springfield!

JoeCon 2015 Iron Grenadiers Metal Head Sculpt HissTank

The G.I.Joe Convention Facebook Page has once again shared an image of a sculpt from the JoeCon 2015 Exclusive Springfield Island: Peril In Paradise (Tiger Force vs Iron Grenadiers) Box Set. This time around, we get to check out the head sculpt for Iron Grenadiers Metal-Head. It should come as no surprise that Boss Fight Studio is behind this fantastic piece of work.
