New concepts for an American Hero

Crankcase – Slaughter’s Marauders

This “repaint” figure is another member of Slaughter’s Marauders. Despite having a few vehicles as part of the team, the Marauders had no official driver, so Crankcase has been given the job. Here he is alongside his original figure design.

New Python Officer

This repaint is actually an update to an older Python Patrol figure. This Python Officer is updated to match the colors of second version of the sub team released in 2003. One confusing aspect of this figure was it was actually based on the 1983 Cobra trooper and not the Officer, so the second image is of the original trooper.

Python Patrol Buzzer

Moving on with more figure “repaints”, here’s a follow-up to Python Patrol Zarana, another Dreadnok, Buzzer. As usual, he’s here alongside the original Buzzer.

Tiger Force Airborne

We’re back to another of the “repainted” action figures, this time Tiger Force Airborne. Like most of the others, his original design is here, too.

Tiger Force Gung-Ho

One more Tiger Force repaint, this time G.I. Joe‘s original Marine, Gung-Ho, alongside his original figure design.

Tiger Force Sparks

An often-forgotten member of G.I. Joe is Sparks, who showed up in a few episodes of the original cartoon as another communications soldier, got no action figure, and didn’t appear again until a Devil’s Due comic in the 2000s, then made more comic appearances after that. He got a figure finally in 2007, but was built from other figures’ parts. This version is based on the cartoon, and his new Tiger Force design is inspired by the brightly-colored Action Force version of that team.

Steel Brigade Command Scarlett

Another repaint sub-team is about as obscure as they come. The Steel Brigade Command set came with the expected generic soldiers, but also included Gung-Ho and Dragonsky. Here is Scarlett in a similar design to those figures, based on her original 1982 figure.

Python Patrol Scrap-Iron

As the G.I. Joe convention rolls on this weekend, featuring some new Python Patrol sets, let’s continue the classic Python Patrol repaints with Scrap-Iron.

Polar Force Zap

This repaint design is cheating a little, since Polar Force was invented just for this web site. Here we have Zap as a member of that team, beside the original 1982 version.

Python Patrol Zarana

Another action figure repaint that never was, Python Patrol Zarana, alongside her original 1986 figure design.

Hawk, Anti-Venom Task Force

Here we go with another “repaint” figure, this time it’s 1982 Hawk as a member of the Anti-Venom Task Force, a six-figure set from 2004. See it here on YoJoe.com. It’s a fairly obscure team, but with some interesting colors. As before, the original version of Hawk is here, too.

Night Force Short-Fuze

Two days in a row? Here is another of the G.I. Joe repaints, turning original figure designs into one of the many Joe sub-teams. Today it’s Night Force Short-Fuze, alongside the original version.

Slaughter’s Marauders Flash

As I did earlier with Grunt and Breaker joining Tiger Force, this time around we have the original Flash “repainted” as a member of Slaughter’s Marauders, the very strangely colored sub-team from 1989. This time, I’ve included the original version of Flash, too.

Tiger Force Breaker

Some more fun using the original action figure designs, and making some “repaints.” This time we’ve got Tiger Force Breaker.

Tiger Force Grunt

I was trying to faithfully recreate some of the original G.I. Joe action figure designs, but figured seeing the unchanged designs on this site would be somewhat boring content. So, here is Tiger Force Grunt, as if he were a repainted version of the original 1982 figure.
