Rank & File: A Guide to 4 Inch G.I. Joe Action Figures Volume 1.1 Ships Monday!

Great news for those that if you that got in on the Rank & File Volume 1 Reprint Kickstarter Campaign. Word has come in via a project update that Vol 1.1 will begin to ship this coming Monday, November 6th! In order for James to ship your book, you must first complete the Kickstarter survey that’s been sent out, so make sure to check your inbox for details! 

After a brief hiatus in 2006 that allowed the G.I. Joe brand to flourish in other areas, G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero was reintroduced in a new stylistic direction that is still predominately used today! Not only did this reintroduction allow fans to revisit some of their most cherished icons within the G.I. Joe mythos, they were introduced to new characters that are now known and loved.

This Rank & File Volume 1.1 is an update to the introductory guide in a series that fully displays every G.I. Joe action figure produced between the 25th Anniversary and today, complete with every accessory and variation produced. Volume 1.1 begins with an introduction to G.I. Joe, discussing its 1964 origins all the way up to the Real American Hero line in its first two generations, and then fully explores the 25th Anniversary and Resolute 4″ action figures series. To top it off, every vehicle and play set released in the 4″ era has been documented and every easily removable piece has been individually photographed—ensuring collector completion.

Don’t forget, you can pick up other volumes in the Rank & File series directly from Mr. James Kavanaugh Jr. via the R.A.H.C. Guide website! Make sure to share your thoughts on the reprint with us right here on the Cobra Island Forums

Eagle Force Returns Shattered Peace Page 16 Now Available

The latest page from the Eagle Force Returns Web Comic, Shattered Peace, is now available for your reading pleasure! 

Last week brought us to Mitte Borough, Berlin, Germany, where we saw a Motor cycle cruising through the streets, but it’s stopped by armed gunmen and a shadowy, white suited character. Who were they and what was the fate of our masked rider? 

Page 16 begins to shed light on the topic. Our “White Suited Character” from last issue confronts a masked man who promises him a spot in the New World Order, regardless of how they get there. Could this be Thule? Perhaps another operative from R.I.O.T.? Only time will tell! 

Eagle Force Returns: “Shattered Peace” Page 16 was written by Justin Bell and illustrated by Ryan Lord. There’s a new page every Wednesday, so join on the Cobra Island Forums to discuss this and all things Eagle Force Returns!

Marauder Task Force Delay!

We received bad news last night from the Marauder “Gun-Runners”.  Unfortunately there was a mix up at the factory, and they didn’t receive the full shipment of wave 1 repaints, so they won’t be able to ship them on time.

Hey 814 Valtaskers!

We received the shipment today that was to have the new male MTF colors..but there was a major mix-up on the order. We ONLY received a very small quantity of samples of some of the new male MTF colors and not the full order. Yeah, we were also very surprised and quite upset. We’re working to find out what went wrong and get the originally planned CORRECT items as soon as possible, but we won’t be able to ship the new Male color Kickstarter orders on Friday 11/6 as planned. We’ll keep you all in the loop and hope to have the situation corrected quickly.

Thanks again for your support,

MJ

As an avid fan of the Marauder Task Force figures, I’m fully confident that it will be worth the wait when I have these figures in hand!
