If you’re even a moderate fan of G.I. Joe or 80s action figure lines, then the Creating G.I. Joe books are like a treasure trove of toy design concepts. Each volume (and there have been two so far) dives beneath the surface of the design process for G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero, revealing concept art (some of it never seen before!) some alternate designs for your favorite characters, and a ton of vintage toy intel.
They are great reads, and if Volume 3 is anything like Volumes 1 and 2, you’ll love digging into the past to see just how the Real American Hero phenomenon was born.
