New concepts for an American Hero

Desert Lady Jaye

This is a design that fits into no particular theme beyond new designs for old characters. Here’s Lady Jaye in desert gear.

New Side Track

Continuing the redesigns of the “identical twins” figures from the early-2000s, here is Side Track, originally a repainted Ambush. Not to be confused with… Sidetrack. Yes, two unique characters released two years apart have names differentiated only by a space in the middle.

New Double Blast

Around the year 2000, G.I. Joe returned as Toys R Us exclusives. Much of the new toys were simple repaints and many got mixed reviews. Some¬†were old figures with new names and identities, so this is an attempt to fix that. Here’s Double Blast, no longer Roadblock’s identical twin.

New Duke

A final 1983 character design, this time First Sergeant Duke. Not any special concept here, just a new jungle-camo version of the character.

New Tiger Force Tripwire

Based on a suggestion from a Facebook follower, here’s a Tiger Force variation of the new Tripwire from the previous post. Once the initial design is done, changing the color scheme is pretty easy!

New Tripwire

Next up from 1983, a new version of mine detector Tripwire. He looks a little bit more hi-tech here, complete with a heads-up display in his face shield.

Desert Gung-Ho

Also from the 1983 G.I. Joe vintage is Gung-Ho. This time it’s GH in a desert-themed outfit.
