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

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…

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…
