3D Joes updated their page with a brand new entry–G.I. Joe Micro Vehicles! Here’s what 3D Joes had to say about the Micro Vehicles!
In 1989, Micro Figures were packaged free with select carded figures. They were sold in subsequent years through offers packed in with vehicles and playsets. The 1991 “Escape from Doom!” booklet offered the Micro Figures once again and introduced the Micro Vehicles.
Our good friend 3DJoes stopped by to share the Accufoil Softcover Proof for Collecting the Art of G.I.Joe: Volume 2 (1984-1985) and it is absolutely fantastic! That’s not the best news, though – Posters are now shipping to all Kickstarter backers! Miss the Kickstarter? Stay tuned because all leftover posters and books will go live on the 3DJoes store by January 1, 2016!
In related news, Collecting the Art of G.I.Joe: Volume 2 (1984-1985) is now available for download from the iBooks and iTunes store! The Collecting the Art of G.I.Joe: Volume 2 (1984-1985) iBook is interactive! On each character and vehicle page you will see a clickable blue star. These stars link out to the corresponding page on 3DJoes so you can check out the spins, file cards, full cardbacks, vehicle boxes, etc. How cool is that?!
Also, a quick update on the Master Sergeant Josh Wheeler auctions. Mr. Ron Rudat, Mr. Kirk Bozigian and 3DJoes sold some G.I.Joe pre-production art and raised $1,200. Thanks on behalf of 3DJoes to all of you that bid. If you’d still like to give, you can donate here: Joshua L Wheeler GoFundMe Page
Collectively, they’ve raised almost $10,000. Yo JOE!!!
