Some Customizing Action

If you’re a regular reader of my blog, you’d know that sometime back in 2004 up to around 2009, I was really into modelling 3D Transformers on the computer. I don’t think it was an exaggeration that I modeled about 80-90% of all the Transformers characters released between 1984-86 and a little bit more beyond that. I just loved challenging myself and seeing how my favorite robots would turn out under my 3D modelling interpretation. Pretty soon I was running out of existing characters to model...so what was there left to do? Well I started creating my own.

Hunting For Some Bounty

Considering the fact that they were literally on screen together as a group for less than a minute with hardly a single speaking line between them, it’s quite amazing how much of a cult favorite status the bounty hunters from The Empire Strikes Back have achieved amongst the Star Wars fandom. Possibly the biggest reason was because they included in their ranks one of the most popular characters from that galaxy far far away, Boba Fett. And as a result the entire group most likely benefited from that close association.

Covering The Girl

Like most toy properties of the 80’s aimed towards boys, G.I.Joe wasn’t known for introducing a lot of female characters into the line. To their credit though, they did a pretty good job at making the very few women that they did create into pretty well developed and memorable characters. Now while Joes like Scarlett and Lady Jaye as well as Cobras, Barnoness and even Zaranna have pretty much become iconic names within the property, there is one lady that wasn’t featured as much even though she was introduced fairly early into the line and it’s this specific girl that I’d like to….cover.
