By far one of my favorite customizing events is G.I. Joe: Resurgence, a very elaborate and well thought out group of customs posted to Oreo Builder’s blog as well as elsewhere throughout the Internet. Billed as a refreshed and new concept G.I. Joe for the next generation, the figures are all at once great homages to the past as well as some really fresh, new ideas.
The third installment of Resurgence kicks off today with three great initial entries, including Croc Master, Swamp Fox, and Underbrush. A great story is woven together among the customs with some really interesting filecards as well.
Keep following Oreo Builder to see the latest installments, and meanwhile, I’m going to go drool over that awesome Croc Master some more!
I’ve covered many of Oreo Builder’s projects in the past enthusiastically…him and Bucky both have some great customizing talent, and I love what they’ve done with past projects, especially the ones focused on Battle Corps and the 50th Anniversary Celebration.
Well, now they’re jumping on something new and even more exciting (to me)!
Introducing G.I. Joe: Resurgence!
The year is 2015, and G.I. Joe has made its official return to retail with a whole new story and whole new series. With a mixture of familiar classics and brand new characters, Resurgence will simulate a whole new retail presence for G.I. Joe.
I was priviledged enough to write a few file cards for the project, and I think folks are really going to love it. Keep watching Oreo Builder’s Blog for updates and huge props to Oreo Builder, Bucky, GI Trekker, Dusty79, notpicard, and even Kirk Bozigian himself!
Two days have been posted so far, and they’re already a whole lot of fun. Make sure you keep watching for more!
GI Joe: Resurgence
It is the year 2015. Following years of relative peace, the ruthless terrorist organization known as Cobra has resurfaced by staging several bold attacks on high profile targets all over the World. Returning to active duty, General Hawk enlists the help of his most trusted acolytes – Duke, Beachhead, Stalker and others. Together, they recruit a new group of soldiers and rebuild the World’s ultimate special operations unit: GI Joe.
Coming in 2015, GI Joe: Resurgence brings back famous GI Joe members from all eras and introduces many new faces to the team. It also marks the return of Cobra Commander and his army of evil henchmen bent on World domination! Collect them all and create your own battles.
