New concepts for an American Hero

Archive for the ‘1986 characters’ Category

Soldier Serpentor

Now for a sort of random concept. What if Serpentor spent more time on the battlefield and dressed in something more appropriate than his snake “costume”? Here, Serpentor is dressed more like a modern soldier but adds some ancient Roman-style armor and weapons, so he can fight alongside his troops.

New Beach Head

An updated version of Beach Head, this time ditching the balaclava and giving him a Ranger beret. no special theme here, just “new Beach Head.”

New Zandar

For the first design in a long while, here’s Zandar. It has some elements of the original, with a little Devil’s Due mixed in, with some toned down colors. I hope no one misses the pink…

Raven (G.I. Joe)

Several times here I’ve gone back to the old Sunbow cartoon for inspiration. This time we go back to the second season episode “In the Presence of Mine Enemies”, in which Slip-Stream is stranded on a dangerous island with a female Strato-Viper, code named Raven. The two join forces to survive and in the end Raven rips the Cobra insignia off her uniform. Slip-Stream even suggests she may be a recruit. So here she is, Raven as a G.I. Joe in a more vintage-style uniform.

Unproduced Zarana

OK, here’s one more of those unused concepts from the G.I. Joe vs Cobra era, this time Zarana with a design very different than her classic look.

Unproduced Lifeline and Serpentor

We continue (and maybe complete) the recently revealed unproduced concepts. For now I think I’ve exhausted the designs that interested me, or ones that I thought I could recreate reasonably well here. Lifeline in an outfit that seems to flip the colors of his original, and a simpler, Caesar-like version of Serpentor.

Unproduced Low-Light and Outback

Two more of the recently revealed G.I. Joe vs Cobra figure concepts: Low Light and Outback. I must admit these two aren’t my favorite designs, but I tried capturing them accurately:
