Our friends from Prime 1 Studio were in attendance at Wonder Festival, where they had their upcoming G.I.Joe Scarlett and Destro statues on display. We’ve mirrored a few images from their Instagram account here with you.
As you can see, both Scarlett and Destro are fully painted and look absolutely fantastic. Will you be adding either of these statues to your collection?
Action Figure Expo is very happy to welcome veteran actor ARTHUR BURGHARDT to the 2017 convention. Fans of the 80s will remember him as the original voice of Destro in G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero. Transformers fans know him as the voice of Devastator in Generation 1. Mr. Burghardt will be available for autographs and photos all day Sunday, July 16th at the Hilton Mississauga/Meadowvale.
Over the course of the last week, IDW artist John Royle shared sneak peeks at covers that will form a large connecting gatefold on Instagram. The piece highlights Cobra and needless to say, is beyond awesome.
We’ve combined the images to the best of our ability so that you can see what they will look like when connected. Will you be adding these titles to your collection? Sound off after the break.
UPDATE – Video of the statues comes courtesy of Radd Titan on YouTube
Good news! There is new G.I.Joe product on display at the show, but not necessarily the show you were thinking of. Although Toy Fair 2017 is in full swing in New York City, another show is taking place, namely the 2017 Winter Wonder Festival in Japan!
Prime 1 Studio was in attendance and brought with them a pair of amazing statues; One of the Cobra Emperor, Serpentor and the other of the Cobra arms dealer, Destro! Serpentor is stunning, lifting off on his iconic Air Chariot from a Cobra base. Destro is unpainted, but needless to say, looks fantastic even in this “naked” state.
We’ve mirrored both images after the break for your viewing pleasure. We’ll bring you pricing & availability details ASAP.
