BarkingFridge Presents Viper By Miriam Iams

Skinny from BarkingFridge shared word on a new Mupnok style video posted to the BarkingFridge YouTube Channel! From Skinny – 

Another crazy Mupnok parody, this time a blast from the past. In 2014 Miriam Iams who also voiced Zarana in “Dreadnok Life” also sang this take on the Cranberries “Zombie” It only felt right to dedicate this to the late lead singer of the Cranberries, Delores O’riordan.

Skinny has also shared the lyrics to the song which we’ve shared on the board, so make sure to join us after the break on the Cobra Island Forums to discuss this latest Mupnok video from BarkingFridge!

JoeCon 2018 Guest Announcement – David Kunitz

The G.I.Joe Collectors Club has announced a new guest for the G.I.Joe Collectors Convention, none other than Mr. David Kunitz! From the Club – 

DAVID “OZONE” KUNITZ probably worked on the 3 3/4-inch G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero brand longer then any one designer. Although starting out on Transformers in 1984, he immediately took on responsibilities for G.I. Joe vehicles. David designed vehicles through an amazing time in the 80s and into the 90s. He is credited for work on G.I. Joe: The Movie and G.I. Joe: Sgt. Savage. He also was instrumental in bringing back the 12-inch G.I. Joe in the 90s. He moved from G.I. Joe to work on other toys for Hasbro when G.I. Joe decided to be “G.I. Joe Extreme”. He left Hasbro to work on brands such as Battletech, Tyco RC, Tyco Electric Race and Matchbox. He was Director of Matchbox vehicles until Hasbro invited him back to lead boys toys for Hasbro Direct, where he participated in bringing back 3 3/4-inch G.I. Joe through Toys “R” Us. David then went on to become vice president of design for boys toys at Hasbro. He was involved in many aspects of G.I. Joe.

David’s likeness was used on two G.I. Joe figures. The 1st being Thrasher, the driver for the Thunder Machine. He had Ron Rudat create an outfit out of lacrosse equipment. The 2nd figure is Ozone, a member of Eco-Warriors and Star Brigade. Ozone’s file card displays his name: David F Kunitz. His work has been featured in several books and on video, most recently on a G.I. Joe episode of the Netflix series “The Toys That Made Us”. 

Presently David Kunitz is the owner of D-Kid group LLC. D-Kid group LLC is a successful product development company that is now partnering on startups to create product for mass-market. It also provides freelance design and consulting for toy companies. These products include interactive books and storytelling, exercise equipment, medical devices, automotive accessories, toys, games, and apiculture. David was educated to be a designer and inventor at Purdue University, and continued his education with Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth in executive development. David volunteers on the Board of Directors for RIMOSA – Rhode Island Museum of Science and Art and presently is Chair for the Institutional Planning committee. RIMOSA’s mission is to awaken curiosity and increase independent thinking, creativity, innovation and invention. This mission is accomplished by encouraging the exploration of science and art through interactive exhibits, educational programming, performances and other museum events.
