New concepts for an American Hero

New Rumbler

Wow, two updates in two days! Today’s concept is for an obscure character that came with the remote control Crossfire vehicle, Rumbler. I don’t think he ever showed up in any stories (the Marvel comic incorrectly used his code name for Armadillo instead), and he’s just a cobbled together figure. This is somewhat inspired by Rumbler being the latest Joe featured at GIJOE365.com. This new Rumbler is based on a NASCAR driver, combining those colorful logo-covered outfits with some military details.

New “realistic” Raptor

Raptor is way up at the top of the list of most ridiculously dressed G.I. Joe figure. He is basically 100% comic book super villain. Here’s a new version of Raptor that makes him into a flying soldier with backpack glider. No feathers in sight.

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:

Unproduced Jinx

First up from the handful of recently revealed, unused character designs is Jinx. The actual Jinx released in this era was a more traditional ninja design. I think I like this unique version best out of these unused concepts.
