I Have a The Loyal Subjects BARONESS in Hand (pics and thoughts, with more to come)

First (brief) Look at The Loyal Subjects G.I.Joe Wave 2 Baroness! This is a fully colored Prototype, it is not a production final, so some changes could occur.

Keep reading, or scroll down to see a short VIDEO.

13262415_10207697864581891_1144445454_o  Here the Beauty is, and the first thing you will notice is that the glasses come off! As does her backpack, even though it would have been easy to mold on as you can’t see all the detail behind the hair. To me that makes extra awesome the time was taken to make sure you could remove it (somewhat flexi head as it is removable) and examine it, maybe even swap it with someone else!

13231133_10207697863181856_1724851621_nHer Gund looks like the original. Only the handle and trigger give it a way, and I look forward to doing some comparison shots when I get home. Now check out a different angle:

13262501_10207697864341885_471643917_o

You can see her armor pieces are more silver, like sideshow.  Her cobras are not sculpted on, but are Tampo’d so well it works great and means more customizing potentially, (especially for the blue single pack version you can get online) I can already see a way  (with some dremeling) to make a Helix and more on top of my planned “Snow bunny”, Crimson Asp, Iron Grenadier and Classic comic versions. (Glad I pre ordered plenty of the blue ones)

14 points of articulation. It appears the right hand has a swivel but not the left, or mine might have been stuck. (1 of 3 I’m aware of, with the other 2 at TLS HQ and another the glasses were a bit tight, may be similar here.)

Her eyebrows are sculpted by the way, and she is frankly the most beautiful female Joe figure under 12″s I have seen.

Feel free to ask for specific shots or comparisons and I will do my best to do so when I get home from this training trip.

For those who do not like chases, Yes this baroness will be a chase, but a blue baroness will be available single carded right off the bat, and future baroness figs are coming too

For those who do love the chase, unlocking this super intelligent, helicopter flying, tactical European bad @$$ sniper will make your day.

I will update this post with more pics. But I know I will also be uploading HERE and I already have a bunch in that TLS Folder so feel free to take a look!

A Review of the Graphic Skinz vacuum chamber and decals

blueboardN

With help from my lil’ nerd I check out the graphic skinz vacuum chamber and it’s abilities to add small decals to toys. The footage was recorded about a year ago! I can echo what I said then, if you want to use it for toys, they have to be smallish, and a clear coat is a must. After the videos below there are some still images. If you like what you see, you can use my affiliate link Here (for pink) and Here (for blue) to purchase one on amazon. (I will get a tiny referral fee.)

Examining the NEWLY REVEALED Loyal Subjects toys (G.I.Joe, TMNT, MOTU, How to train your dragon)

blueboardNPART 1: The Loyal Subjects has become one of my favorite companies and that’s probably obvious by now! The latest batch of new images has me excited. The black Friday sale means an amazing Pre-Sale price, 40% off of these items that were just revealed, and most of them are must buy’s for me! Some of them I know I will have to get more than one of! Where do I start?  Brand by Brand, Pic by Pic, I wanted to provide some commentary on each image!

Glow in the Dark He-Man makes the silver become Glow in the Dark. The Power Sword will look great pointing towards the sky glowing in a dark room. It also features mini comic inspired Axe and Shield combo. This means you get to have your He-man how you want him ! Mine will probably go Sword and Board style, like a rpg tank.

Those eyes look like creepy as heck. I’m looking forward to seeing how well these translate into the paint masks used on the factory produced figures.  They really remind me of something from Zelda, like those pesky statues with an eye that shoot lasers at poor Link.

Joe Allard let us know that the plan is to go with Orange glow in the dark for this one. His design his awesome and I think a new GID color is a perfect way to spice this fig up! (although the green face would look good in traditional GID too.)

My fav out of the Masters of the Universe online exclusives (note: all single carded) would be:
