Hasbro Pulse has given us an in depth look at the creation of Stiletto, an all new G.I.Joe character brought to life by Bill Nedrow via Kindle Worlds. You may recall that Hasbro ran a contest, where one lucky winner would have their character brought to life in modern action figure form.
Here’s a brief blurb from the article –
Every good story starts with strong characters, and every character must start with a purpose. I never set out to create an action figure; I wrote with the intention of crafting the type of G. I. Joe story that I’d always dreamed of reading. I’d hoped that G. I. Joe: First Salvo would resonate with other fans of the franchise, and when the overwhelmingly positive feedback I received informed me that it had, I began G. I. Joe: Honor. Along the way, I continued to try to craft a character-driven narrative that would stay true to the rich mythology of the brand while still providing a take on the story that was original and unique.
Thanks to Bill, Hasbro and Kindle Worlds, we now have our own Stiletto figure. The entire article is a fantastic read and definitely something you’ll want to check out for yourself. Once you do, join us after the break for discussion already in progress.
