New concepts for an American Hero

Archive for the ‘G.I. Joe’ Category

Heather Collins

Recent issues of Larry Hama’s G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero reintroduced Heather Collins, the daughter of Wade and sister of Sean who we first saw as a child. Despite being a civilian she proves to be a skilled hacker and a capable fighter. Here she is if she did join the Joes.

The final member of the six-Joe Urban Assault Team is the team’s communication expert, Dial-Tone. This also happens to be the 100th post on this blog! Thanks for following along, and there will be more to come!

Clutch – Urban Assault Team

The newest member of the Urban Assault Team, Clutch. The original G.I. Joe driver seems like a good choice to be speeding through the city to backup the team.

Bullet-Proof – Urban Assault Team

More of the Urban Assault Team, this time its leader: Bullet-Proof. Last seen leading the Joes’ D.E.F., he has a more “law enforcement” design here.

Red Zone – Urban Assault Team

It’s been a while again, but now we continue with the next member of the Urban Assault Team, following Mayday and Mutt. Red Zone is a pretty obscure character, only appearing in the 2006’s Plague Troopers vs. Steel Brigade set as Steel Brigade’s urban assault expert. A fact not noticed by me until after coming up with this concept! His file name (Luke Ellison) and his likeness come from a real fan who won a contest to be made into a G.I. Joe figure. Note that Red Zone proudly displays his Steel Brigade patch!

Mutt & Junkyard – Urban Assault Team

After creating a new design for Mayday earlier, I thought of focusing on other characters who could also specialize in urban warfare. This newly designed Mutt (with Junkyard) was meant to compliment her design, and others will soon follow as part of a G.I. Joe Urban Assault Team. Customizers have been known to create action figures with common themes, and this is the same idea.

Updated Cutter

Today we have a sometimes-forgotten G.I. Joe character, Cutter, the team’s only member from the Coast Guard. Here his uniform is similar to the modern uniforms worn by the Guard.
