Daniel Klingensmith wrote a book, giving us a behind the scenes look at how the G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero toy line came into being, called 3.75″ Joe: The Special Forces Team That Forged an American Hero!
G.I. Joe® is one of the most recognizable and well known action figure lines in history, yet there is no full story showing the creation process of the G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero™ brand that ran from 1982-1994.
Well that’s about to change with the release of “3.75 Inch Joe”.
Although there have been many books written about G.I. Joe®, what makes “3.75 Inch Joe” unique is the fact that the information shared within the book comes from exclusive interviews with former employees who worked on the G.I. Joe® Brand. Some of the things to expect include:
• The inspiration and influences behind the different figures and vehicles
• Alternate names for figures and vehicles
• Insider stories regarding the changes that occurred during the design process
• Conceptual designs and photographs that will show the progression and different stages of creating a figure or vehicle
• And much more…
A portion of the profits will be donated to Hasbro Children’s Hospital and Phoenix Children’s Hospital.
