Whatup Valiant fam. The 1990 photos are posted. I've got carded figure art and file card close-ups posted. I hope to start dropping in 3D photos for these next weekend. I've been hella busy with the "3DJoes of the 80s" poster (that went to production this Friday!) and moving to a new house. Any way, have a look here for the latest 3DJoes.com content!

Mailing tubes are loaded and all previous orders are shipping tomorrow!

If you haven't ordered yours yet, visit
http://www.3djoes.com/merch.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; to order.

If you have a brick and mortar comic/collectibles store and want to order 10 or more for a pretty significant discount, give me a shout.

Also, if you're overseas, pool a few friends together and order bulk to get a cheaper rate and save on shipping. I can fit 20 per tube.

Yo Joe!

I gotta say, these are pretty damn cool. I don't have any of them now, but I had a TON of stuff when I was a kid. My extra funds are all tied up at the moment on comic wants, but these posters are just too damn cool, I will have to order one (or more) eventually since they will look real nice in a frame in my office. Thanks for all the work you have done on that and your site. I have spent some time looking at your site and like reading comics, it brings me back to childhood :)
Where are we going and why am I in this hand-basket?

:thumb: It's my pleasure. I get the same nostalgic rush making the site and posters as you do looking at them. They just take you back to a simpler time when your wants didn't extend far beyond a Nintendo, comic books, and toys. I can't go back to 10 years old, but I sure as hell can still enjoy now the things I enjoyed then. :thumb:

Wanna know more about 3DJoes? Check out the latest "What's on Joe Mind" podcast (episode 74), featuring the beautiful voice behind Lady Jaye and yours truly. My interview kicks off around 54 minutes in. We discuss how and why I'm making 3DJoes, the 3DJoes posters (80s out now, 90s coming this summer), the upcoming 3DJoes coffee table book (coming this winter), and of course the upcoming JoeCon, where I'll be sharing a booth with none other than Roert Atkins. Yo Joe!

The 1990 carded figures and drivers are live!

Post by Carson »

The 1990 carded figures and drivers are live!

All 18 carded figures from the main line and all 6 drivers are posted, many with multiple 3D photos! From Ambush to Undertow, they're all there. I didn't remember how amazing all of the accessories were from this year. I was starting to age out in 1990, so maybe I didn't pay them enough attention back then. I was 11 years old and comics had taken over as my top hobby.

Now that I've taken another good look at them, I have to say that 1990 is one of my favorite years. I'd put the 1990 accessories against any other year for the "best of the A Real American Hero line" award. From Ambush's tent, to Pathfinder's weed-eater, to Stretcher's sled, to Rock Viper's grappling hook backpack, to Undertow's harpoon and barracuda... these accessories were just plain fun! I had a blast breaking 'em all out again.

Check 'em out!

The Sky Patrol have landed and the Sonic Fighters are up

Post by Carson »

12 new figures have landed, all with multiple 3D photos! The Sky Patrol figures featured all new head sculpts on some repainted classic drivers and pilots. Check them out and see if you can identify the body. Then scroll down to the group photo for the answer. These figures don't feel like plain old repaints. Their awesome helmets (many with moving visors), cool weapons, and silver parachutes made them an interesting and play-worthy new Joe unit.

The Sonic Fighters were pure repaints of their earlier incarnations, but they came with loads of weapons and of course the infamous [gigantic] sonic backpacks. Believe it or not, after 23 years, three of the six backpacks are still functional! Check out the pages for Dial-Tone, Law, and Tunnel Rat to hear the magic of 1990 toy technology.

The 1991 carded figures are live!

All 17 carded figures from the main line are posted, many with multiple 3D photos! From Big Ben to Tracker, they're all there. I had completely aged out by 1991 (comics had taken over as my top hobby), so many of these figures were brand new to me only five years ago when I resumed collecting ARAH. Now that I've gotten to know them, I have to say that there are some really cool figures here.

There are some nice re-makes of old favorites (Dusty, Low-Light, Sci-Fi, and Snow Serpent), and then there are some more questionable re-makes (General Hawk in a jet pack, Snake Eyes in blue and orange, and a very angry Grunt in some tight mustard-colored pants).

1991 introduced some new allies (from the Marvel comic book): Big Ben (the SAS trooper) and Red Star (the Oktober Guard officer). We also were introduced to some new Joes (Heavy Duty and Tracker) and some new Cobras (Desert Scorpion and Crimson Guard Immortal).

I had a blast breaking 'em all out and making some new friends. I hope you enjoy them too.

Eco-Warriors and Super Sonic Fighters are coming soon.

Post by Carson »

6 Eco-Warriors (with color-change battle damage and water-shooting weapons), 6 Super Sonic Fighters (with electronic lights and battle sounds), 4 Air Commandos (with gliders that can fly up to 40 feet), 2 Battle Copter pilots (with high altitude one man helicopters), and the mail order Lifeline are all live! Will Road Pig know what to do with an electronic backpack? Who is the first G.I. Joe to wield a boomerang? Can Psyche-Out possibly carry all of that equipment? Find out the answers to this and more on the 1991 overview page!

Ready for four more years? (of catalogs that is) 1987-90 are

Post by Carson »

3DJoes isn't just about fancy 3D photos! This site is all about the illustration, sculpture, and photography of G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero. Over the years I've collected many catalogs and offers. These print outs came with the various figures and vehicles, and they only made you want more figures and vehicles. Those guys at Hasbro knew exactly what they were doing. I've uploaded 1987-1990. Check them out via the navigation bar at the top of this page. Marvel at the awesome illustration on the 1987 Catalog, meet the Iron Grenadiers in the 1988 Catalog, puzzle at why they used the Crusader illustration on the 1989 Catalog, and then realize that they were ditching the lush illustrations of the past in the 1990 Catalog. If you are hungry for more art when you are done with that, check out the 1992 figure overview. The 3D photos aren't up yet, but the card art and file cards are all live.

The 1992 Joes and Cobras are alive on 3DJoes.com!

Post by Carson »

The Drug Elimination Force (D.E.F.), Eco-Warriors, Ninja Force, Talking Battle Commanders, pilots, and mail order figures are all live on the 1992 overview!

http://www.3djoes.com/1992-overview.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

This is my second largest roll-out ever! We are rolling out 3D photos of 6 Drug Elimination Force (D.E.F.) carded figures (each with a unique "electronic battle-flash" weapon), 3 more Eco-Warriors carded figures (with water-squirting weapons and "color-change battle damage"), 6 Ninja Force carded figures (with spring powered "real ninja action"), 4 Talking Battle Commanders carded figures (with giant backpacks that allowed them to "shout out their orders"), 2 more Air Commandos carded figures (with working gliders), 2 more Battle Copters pilots, and the mail order Steel Brigade v2 and Cobra Ninja Vipers. Will Duke master the rocket rodeo? How does General Flagg launch missiles in a blackout? What was the deal with the Roadblock accessory recall? Is Wild Bill balding? Is Headman on meth? Is Deep-Six still a recluse? What color were Cobra Ninja Viper's swords? How many Steel Brigade patch variants are there? Find out the answers to this and more on the 1992 overview page!

A big thanks to G.I. John for his help with all of the 1992 3D photos!

The 1993 Battle Corps figures are live, plus 1993 card art!

Post by Carson »

This is a BIG one! Hasbro released far more G.I. Joe figures in 1993 than in any other year of the "A Real American Hero" 13 year run. Not counting the Street Fighter toys (since they were never part of G.I. Joe continuity and will not be covered on this site), there were 91 figures released in 1993! That's more than 1991 and 1992 combined, and more than double 1994. Needless to say, we've been hard at work.

Photos of the carded figures and file cards have been posted for all of 1993!

All but four of the 41 Battle Corps figures are posted, many with multiple 3D photos! 1993 introduced some new Joes, like Colonel Courage, Long Arm, Mace and Snow Storm. We were reintroduced many fan-favorites like Bazooka, Beach-Head, Duke and Outback. On the Cobra side, we met the Crimson Guard Commander, Gristle, Headhunter Stormtroopers and the Night Creeper Leader. We were also reintroduced to Dr. Mindbender and were issued new Alley Vipers and H.E.A.T. Vipers. All in all, it was a colorful year revisiting many of my old favorites. I could have done without all of the bright colors, but hey, it was the 90s, so I can't blame Hasbro entirely.

2 Dino-Hunters, 8 Mega Marines, 9 Ninja Force, 15 Star Brigade, and 16 mail order figures are all coming soon.

:lol:
As I mentioned in a past post, I played with My Little Pony as a child. And loved them! So, He-man comparatively not-so-gay. I loved the G.I. Joe cartoon, and I had a few figures, but after begging for parents to buy Transformers, there wasn't much leverage to get a G.I. Joe figure as well.

On a semi-related note, I had a huge collection of gothic/horror-sorta figures that had holograms for faces that were really cool. The holograms were really detailed. Anyone know what those were?

I wish I could build toy websites all day too! Alas, I'm relegated to nights and weekends. I did register 3DValiant, so I'm just waiting for them to make some toys!

I dug GI Joe for the militaristic characteristics. My dad was Special Forces and in my young mind, he epitomized Falcon.

Transformers were expensive and just not human enough for me to connect with. He Man, well... yeah, it was pretty fruity :-) And the figures weren't even very articulated!
