G.I.Joe Collectors Club Figure Subscription 7 Dusty and Sandstorm Revision Revealed

You asked and the G.I.Joe Collectors Club listened. Many fans were a bit let down by the fact that the modern interpretation of the 1991 Dusty figure being released in FSS 7 didn’t quite look right, namely due to the missing camouflage on his pants. Thanks go to our friends at Just Another G.I.Joe Show for sharing confirmation that the club has revised Dusty and he will feature a new paint deco that makes the figure look that much closer to the original. 

It’s great to hear that the Club will be able to make the change. Hopefully those that were on the fence before have been nudged a bit closer to subbing. What about you? Getting in on FSS 7 or skipping it all together? Join us for discussion already in progress on the Cobra Island Forums!

John Stephenson: August 9, 1923 – May 15, 2015

I’ve got sad news to report tonight, Islanders.  John Stephenson, the voice of many of our childhood heroes and icons, passed away on Friday, May 15, 2015.

News of his death was posted on News From Me:

Voice actor John Stephenson died Friday night at the age of 91. He had been suffering from Alzheimer’s for some time and living in a nursing home. Several years ago, reports of his declining health somehow led to a series of erroneous Internet reports that he had passed. This time, sadly, it’s so.

Stephenson’s long, prolific career began in 1948 when he moved to Hollywood from his native Wisconsin. He quickly became a working actor on radio dramas and began landing roles in film and on television. In fact, it would be hard to find a TV show filmed in Hollywood between 1953 and about 1968 that he didn’t guest on. You can catch him on reruns of The Lone Ranger, The Beverly Hillbillies, F Troop, Get Smart, Green Acres, Hogan’s Heroes, Perry Mason, That Girl, The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show, The People’s Choice, The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis and so many more. In the sixties though, he was getting so much work in voiceovers that he abandoned his “on camera” career.

He did hundreds of commercials and announcing jobs. His was the voice that announced the verdicts at the end of the sixties’ Dragnet series.

And he worked incessantly in cartoons, mainly for Hanna-Barbera. He was heard often on the original Flintstones series, voicing Fred’s boss Mr. Slate and dozens of supporting characters. On the series Top Cat, he spoke for the character Fancy-Fancy and, again, dozens of supporting characters. On Jonny Quest, he was Dr. Benton Quest. On other H-B shows, he played recurring and guest roles to the extent that he may have been the most-heard actor on their shows. Joe Barbera loved him and the feeling was mutual. (I took the above photo of him at a party for Mr. Barbera.)

The Internet Movie Database lists 232 credits for him as both an on-camera and voiceover actor. I would bet that’s less than a tenth of all he did.

John was heard on many of the shows I worked on for H-B but I only met him briefly a few times. He was efficient and professional and a very good actor, much respected by his peers. We will all miss him but we will continue to hear him.

Joe fans will recognize him as the voice of General Hawk.  One thing’s for sure: the cartoon industry just lost an absolute legend!  Rest in peace, John Stephenson!
