Oktober Guard, Pt 8 – Horror Show

And finally, the last member of the Oktober Guard. Horror Show the Georgian is probably the most memorable of the team besides Daina, and was one of the most prominent in the original G.I. Joe cartoon series. He was designed here with an attempt to make him look bigger than the usual characters seen here.

Oktober Guard, Pt 7 – Ruslan

Today we’ve got the most obscure member of the Guard, Ruslan. He was a young member of the team that appeared in only a few scenes in the G.I. Joe: America’s Elite “World War III” storyline, and didn’t even have any dialogue.

Oktober Guard, Pt 4

Continuing with the updated Oktober Guard, we have Dragonsky the flamethrower/mechanic who first showed up in the Guard’s second comic appearances. Then it’s Sgt. Misha, who was one of the new replacements years later. Both are Russians.

New Mayday

In the early 2000s, Devil’s Due gave us the G.I. Joe recruit Paige Adams, who went on to become a full-fledged member code named Mayday. (Not to be confused with G.I. Joe Extreme character Mayday.) This new design includes “urban camo” to match her Urban Warfare Specialist title.

Gung-Ho character design timeline

This has only been done twice before, once for Grunt, and a much longer one for Scarlett. Gung-Ho‘s character design timeline includes 24 variations of the Cajun Marine, though a few simple repaints were left out. Obviously these take a long time to create, but hopefully you’ll see others now and then.
