    Steel City Publishing Teases Potential 3 3/4 Inch Joe Volume 5 Breakdown


    Mr. Dan Klingensmith Jr. has shared a potential breakdown of volume 5 in his series of books via the 3 3/4 Inch Joe Facebook Page and the list is quite impressive! For those unfamiliar with Dan's books (highly unlikely, but just in case), here's a brief synopsis:

    The “3.75 Inch Joe: The Special Forces Team that forged an American Hero” series is a library of designs and stories ranging from 1982-1994, including some unproduced concepts! Volume 1 - 4 are fully colored books, printed on 100# paper in a Soft Perfect Bind format with a visible spine like a graphic novel, so there's no reason to believe that volume 5 will be any different.

    Although there have been many books written about G.I. Joe®, what makes "3.75 Inch Joe: The Special Forces Team that forged an American Hero" series unique is the fact that the information shared within the book comes from exclusive interviews with former employees who worked on the G.I. Joe® brand. Some of the things to expect include: • The inspiration and influences behind the different figures and vehicles straight from the designers' point of view... • Alternate names for figures and vehicles pulled from Larry Hama's dossiers or from the original concepts themselves... • Insider stories from former employees ranging from Marketing to Engineering regarding the changes that occurred during the design process... • Conceptual designs and photographs that will show the progression and different stages of creating a figure or vehicle. This includes concept pencils and inks, sculpture sheets, color studies, color presentation art, models, and much much more!

    The list of characters and vehicles that we could potentially see in volume 5 are as follow:

    1982 Stalker * 1982 F.L.A.K. * 1982 Stalker * 1982 F.L.A.K. * 1983 Airborne * 1983 Pac Rat Missile Launcher * 1983 Pac Rat Machine Gun
    1983 Pac Rat Flamethrower * 1985 Barbecue * 1985 Quick Kick * 1986 Monkey Wrench * 1986 Low-Light * 1987 Techno-Viper * 1987 Fast Draw
    1987 Persuader * 1987 Back Stop * 1988 Toxo-Viper * 1988 Charbroil * 1989 Scoop * 1989 H.E.A.T.-Viper * 1989 Aero Viper * 1989 Condor Z-25
    1990 Laser Viper * 1990 Decimator * 1990 Hammerhead * 1990 Ambush * 1991 Heavy-Duty * 1991 Desert Scorpion * 1992 Eel * 1992 Earthquake
    * 1992 Wetsuit * More!
