G.I. Joe – Mega Bloks: AWE Striker

More MB Joe vehicles!  Don’t ask me why, but the AWE Striker was always a favorite vehicle of mine.  It didn’t have much use in a battlefield setting, but for small recon teams and harsh terrain, it made a tad more sense.  My grandfather had a street-legal dune buggy when I was a kid, and…

G.I. Joe – Mega Bloks: Killer WHALE

After a healthy break to focus on some other priorities, the long winter gave me ample time to get motivated to pick back up with the Mega Bloks G.I. Joe motor pool project.  I had barely begun on the base of the WHALE when I took some time off from customizing, and I wanted to…

G.I. Joe – Mega Bloks: MP Joes

If you haven’t guessed by now, I’m mildly smitten with Mega Bloks figures customized as GIJoe characters.  Their size, range of motion, details, gear, and overall fun-factor absolutely dwarfs that of LEGO and Kre-O minifigures.  I’ve created my own Joes and Cobras you can find here and here.  I’ve also had a go at some…

G.I. Joe – Mega Bloks: MOBAT

What can I say, tiny Steeler looked lost without his trusty tank!  The Call of Duty line of bricks produces a really great A-1 Abrams main battle tank, but it’s far more modern than a Joe MOBAT, and it’s decked out in a desert tan camo scheme.  That just wasn’t going to work.  And while…

G.I. Joe – Mega Bloks: VAMP & Stinger

After customizing over 80 tiny GIJoe and Cobra figures from Call of Duty, Halo, and other Mega Bloks licenses, I decided they needed some wheels.  Kre-O’s GIJoe brick vehicles redefined the word “disappointment”, so that was a no-go.  The Call of Duty construction line has a wide variety of genuinely impressive military vehicles, many of…

G.I. Joe – Mega Bloks: Cobra – The Enemy

Continuing the spotlight on custom Mega Bloks GI Joe figures, today I’m posting the adversaries of the Joe team, the ruthless terrorist organization: Cobra.  This group had it’s good and bad points while making them.  The designs were simpler, and making repeats of the nameless/faceless troopers require less thought.  However, it got a little monotonous…

G.I. Joe – Mega Bloks: The Joe Team

A few years ago when Hasbro announced that they were going to get into the brick business (presumably to get a share of that sweet Lego revenue), we all rejoiced that we might get some really cool small-scale Joe figures.  Instead, we got “Kre-O”, a blatant ripoff of cute little Lego minifigures and grossly under-scaled…
