Jinx Character Design Timeline

The Oktober Guard will return later, but now it’s another character design timeline, this time Jinx. The choice of Jinx was made sort of randomly, after just looking for a character with some interesting design differences and that didn’t have TOO many versions. There are more versions of Jinx than you may realize. (There may be a Snake-Eyes timeline in the future, but that would be a LOT of variations to tackle.)

Lady Jaye & Battlefield Messenger concepts

For this site I search around the internet looking for interesting unproduced designs, concept art, etc. This time around we have an early unused Renegades Lady Jaye concept posted here over a year ago, as well as concept art seen in this auction (mentioned by someone on Facebook), only referred to as Battlefield Messenger (though he does resemble Dusty).

Sigma 6 Scarlett concept

While Scarlett‘s Sigma 6 design was seen on the design timeline, today we have a concept a figure for one of the small secondary Sigma 6 “2.5 inch Mission Series.” The design can be seen on this page from 2009.

Unproduced Bombstrike and Hollow Point

A while back the site posted a number of designs based on concept art revealed by Sam Wells on this page at Here are a couple more from there. First is “Cadet Bombshell,” an early name for Bombstrike, and a slightly different version of Hollow Point from the Built to Rule toy sets.

Unproduced Baroness (upgrade)

The very first design posted here was a version of the Baroness based on an unproduced figure from 1995. That was a smaller image, in an older style than most of the others here. I finally got around to an “upgrade.”

Unproduced Arctic (?) figure

Sorry for the month-long break, but in the future you can look for another character design timeline, this time much longer than the one for Grunt.

This unproduced concept comes from a while back at the Facebook page for the upcoming 3 3/4 Inch Joe book. The figure has no name but looks like an Arctic figure despite being more colorful than the usual mostly-white figures are.

Unproduced Hawk plus Greenshirt upgrade

First up is an unused design from concept art post at the JoeDeclassified Facebook page a while back. The drawing is labeled “Missile Specialist” though the page says it’s General Hawk. I’m not sure it looks like Hawk, but his first figure had that specialty. It’s also uncertain what era the design is from. It’s definitely an unusual design. In addition, I’ve put up a new “upgrade” to my male Greenshirt image. All that’s new is the collar, which I wasn’t really happy with before.
