Enemy Spy Leader (Demon Enemy)

Enemy Spy Leader

National Defense, a series of budget, me-too GI Joe clones, is an odd and confusing story, to say the least. The line, available at K-Mart, utilized molds that would also be used by Galoob in its Gen. Patch series. The line also saw release as American Defense, a name later used by Remco for a …

Enemy Jet Glider (Geewunner.com)

Enemy Jet Glider (Geewunner.com)

It’s time for another Geewunner.com custom build. Continuing with the brilliant brick builder’s 80s GI Joe homages, it’s the Enemy Jet Glider. The one-man Cobra attack glider, first made famous by Storm Shadow in Marvel issue #21, is always a fan favorite. It cuts a very familiar outline for 80s toy fans, and that shape …

Cobra Eel (1993)

Cobra Eel (1993)

Hasbro went redeco crazy with some of 1993’s Battle Corps figures. Call it the last gasps of a once fabulously successful toyline, or a cheap way to extend the line for another year, the fact remains that, repaints aside, the year’s output in terms of single carded figures was immense. With Battle Corps and a …

Wild BIll (2008)

Arctic Threat Storm Shadow

Arctic Threat Storm Shadow

By KansasBrawler I have to credit Hasbro for their diabolical level of genius. It seems like every so often, they make a figure that I didn’t necessarily want because of its design but then they deck it out in a paint job that hits all my nostalgia buttons hard and I snap it up. A …

Intruders Commander (1976)

Intruder Commander (1976)

The enemy of GI Joe! the packaging touted. The first enemy of GI Joe, to be exact. In all of its twelve year existence, GI Joe had no real antagonist, aside from animals and mother nature. These caveman-looking figures were described as strong men from another world. Their brutish looks belied their background as super …

Enemy Fan Boat (Geewunner.com)

Enemy Fan Boat

Another custom brick creation by Geewunner, the Enemy Fan Boat gives an impressively accurate depiction of the Cobra Water Moccasin to Cobra’s Kre-O forces. This is another solid build, in terms of style, fun and function. First off, as a build, it’s quite substantial. There’s no worry of the vehicle coming apart, even with little …
