My good friend, artist extraordinaire, George Vega reached out to share word on a new line of 1:18 offerings that he’s recently done some design work on. That line? Just a revival of Super Joe!
Now, for those unfamiliar with Super Joe, a quick google search will bring you a bounty of info. No worries though, I’ve got you covered with cliff notes 😉
Back in the late 70’s, the Super Joe Adventure Team was introduced and was offered in a smaller scale (8.5″). The Super Joe Adventure Team was much more sci-fi, introducing futuristic equipment and fighting monster/alien types.
This line represented the last “larger scale” action figure offering under the G.I.Joe umbrella for awhile, as A Real American Hero would kick off just over half a decade later in 1982.
Ok, now that you’re up to speed (somewhat), check out these (4) design pieces from George –
Super Joe Commander
Shield Android Fighters
Yeah, you can definitely count me in on a Super Joe Commander and Gor-gon at the very least! Many thanks once again to George for the heads up on this!
I’m tempted with all 4, but definitely the two Gors.

Couldn’t agree more, those Gors are a MUST!
