IRON GRENADIERS (Topic 1)…

Iron GrenadierHello Joe fans! I’m taking some pictures of my Iron Grenadiers army which I hope to share soon in the group. Most of them are modern era figures with almost all the vintage and new IG vehicles. As I consider it is one of the most attractive sub teams, I’m wondering why the last convention sets didn’t give us an updated IG Destro, even a Baroness (If we can consider her as part of IG) What do you think? Somebody can share some info about the cancelled Destro in the picture?
Which Destro’s modern era version did you consider as the more adequate for IG?
YO JOE!!!

Son of Kwinn Custom based off of unused artwork!

blueboardN Joe Custom Critques Facebook user Felix Stratton (Mercer is that you? ) has created the first custom (that I’m aware) based off the images released by Sam Wells right here on Nerdrahtio.

See them mirrored below (with permission) /home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/e43/44850936/files/2015/01/img_6224.jpg

Felix says it’s still a WIP in progress, and we look forard to the finished result, but it looks great already!

Here is the original art (we believe is from Draxhall Jump)

Expolsion of News about Jurassic Park Joes

08_CobraCommanderwhile I’ve been “slacking” (Trust me i’d rather be updating the website, than having to deal with a sick 3-month old.) The Joe Blog the Leaky Suit Brigade, has been reporting about the discovery of confirmed for release Jurassic Park G.I.Joes, them being found at retail, and even new ones revealed.  I encourage you to check out what’s released already, and what’s upcoming.

You may recall i have been posting a lot about them, their potential hope for release, their closing prices on ebay, and pics. It’s a good time to point that I while I don’t have a category on the menu at the left for JP, you can always track or read all articles on the site by the tags as well. For example the Jurassic Park tag has all the articles in an easy to read set.

Beyond the Leaky Suit Brigade, JP Toys has also posted several images one i’ve which i’ve mirrored below.

Look at that helmet! it really reminds me of Sigma Six Firefly, that's a new head too (Crimson Chin/Jay Leno is that you?)

Check out both sites, although I have to warn you I saw the above picture via twitter,  and not JP Toys itself, it appears this particular image is in the message board and you have to sign up to see it, but other images are on the front page.

It appears the Joes are coming in  the $30.00 battle packs with one good sized dinosaur. 2 are coming out now with some folks already finding them, and 2 are upcoming.  One of the current ones is named Ash Skullstriker, I’d love to know the name of the other if anyone finds one and wants to let us know.  These are TRU exclusives, so happy hunting!

UPDATE:  The Leaky Suit Brigade let me know that Ash Skullstriker is packed with the Allosauras and Pachyrhynocaus  comes with Gunner Gordorn.  For further clarity Ash Skullstriker uses the Red Dog head, and Gunner Gordon uses the burnout head.
