Long time friend of mine and friend of GeneralsJoes, James “Kuukuuson” Kavanaugh Jr has been working very long and very hard over the past several years to painstakingly produce a G.I. Joe guide that fills in the gaps, so to speak.
Mark Bellomo created a wonderful guide to the original Real American Hero collection, but the years 1997 – 2007 have been underappreciated by the masses, and haven’t really warranted a full on publication. Well, James took it upon himself to build a guide for this period of time basically from the ground up. Doing all of the images, all of the page design, and all of the printing, it is a labor of love, and it shows.
I hope lots of Joefans out there will support the amazing effort that James has put into this fantastic book. Details of the book’s release are below, as well as some special preview images you will only find at GeneralsJoes. Rock on, James!
Coming soon, the adventure continued in 1997 and is now completely documented in the R.A.H.C. Guide!
After a brief hiatus in 1994, G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero gained a resurgence in pop culture causing a re-release of some favorite characters in their classic molds. This revival eventually induced some experimenting with these classic characters in bold and exciting new directions. Not only did fans get to revisit some of their most cherished icons within the G.I. Joe mythos, they were introduced to new characters that are now known and loved.
This full color, 172 page compendium fully explores all six series that were produced within the second generation O-ring torso era (1997-2007) including the Built to Rule line and the Collectors Club special releases. This guide beautifully illustrates the era’s 689 action Figures, 135 vehicles and play sets and 1,349 accessories including all known variations. Not only is every accessory present and accounted for, they have each been assigned a unique number and identified throughout the resource guide. The accessories are then culminated in a separate section clearly displayed and organized by category. Each action figure has been carefully examined between its initial run and further re-releases to ensure that an accurate sample is clearly and concisely presented for the collector who is identifying individual action figures or sorting through unorganized lots.
