The great folks over at Forgotten Figures have posted a nice article detailing one particularly forgotten vehicle from 1995.
The vehicle in question is the Sea Wolf, an arctic repaint of the original 1984 G.I. Joe Whale Hovercraft.
It’s always amazing to see these ideas from Hasbro that never came to fruition, but when it’s something like this, it’s also quite frustrating, considering the place the Whale has in the hearts of many collectors and fans.
Why is a Jem Fan Film being posted on Cobra Island you may ask? Because of the appearance of some Cobra’s in the film of course, including one of the best Baroness portrayals we’ve seen by Allison Scagliotti.
I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again – If you aren’t following Mr. Tom Waltz on Twitter, then you don’t know what you’re missing. Mr. Waltz has continuously set the G.I.Joe World on Twitter ablaze with his posts and his most recent is no different!
About two weeks ago, Mr. Waltz began sharing artwork of the G.I.Joe Covert Operations Specialist, Helix! No details other than “Top Secret” have been shared. We can only assume that this G.I.Joe Femme Fatale will be featured in an upcoming IDW Publishing G.I.Joe A Real American Hero book and needless to say, we can’t wait to pick it up!
We’ll bring you more details as they’re released, but until then, share your thoughts with us on this “Top Secret” Helix artwork after the break on the Cobra Island Forums!
