Knowing is half the battle

Wow, these sure brought back some memories. Back in the day, I was a big GI Joe fan. These recreations by Alexander Schranz are spot on. Click on the picture and scroll down. There’s a lot of awesome GI goodness there. I always liked the bad guys best though. Cobra!

Great job, Alex! Thanks for pointing these out to us.

    Oh that is a great idea!

    It does remind me of the old PSA parodies on YouTube however.
    (Check them out with caution, as some have bad language.)

    Hells ya! Cobra rocked! I’m a sucker for G.I. Joe man. A G.I. Joe license for Lego would be the bee’s knees, if just for the minifigs. God! I want a Shipwreck. I’d wager there would be some serious fan support of a G.I. Joe license, and I’m not talking about that Mega Blok crap from a few years back or whatever, and I’m not suggesting a tie-in with the upcoming movie (looks terrible *cough*). I mean the vehicles and characters from the 80’s, when G.I. Joe was the hottest thing out there.

    I like these MOCs, I just wish Alexander Schranz had a Flickr account so I didn’t have to keep going back a page to see the next picture. (hint, hint)

    Wow, Storm Shadow’s combination of Clone Wars head and ninja hood is much creepier than I would have expected.

    Great stuff!

    I think it just shows the depth of the cultural influence of G.I. Joe that I immediately heard the tune “GEE AAYYEE JOOOOOOOOOOE!!” in my head when I saw these creations, even though I’ve never seen a episode or played with G.I. Joe when growing up.
