1994 Star Brigade Aliens
I was a high school senior in 1994 and was not in tune with the G.I.Joe world at the time, Later on as a collector I discovered some great figures. Space Shot, Gears, and Sci-Fi are some of my favorites from this year. There are 3 characters that were very much unlike the rest though, the Aliens. These were somewhat odd I guess in a military based toy, but I thought the first time I saw them that they were pretty cool. Carcass is the first of the trio. He is a pretty scary looking dude and his file card says he is a born menace to the universe. 2nd is Lobotomaxx. He does not look that scary to me but he is a bounty hunter and friend to nobody, and especially dislikes humans. Last is Predacon.
To me he looks pretty friendly, he hunts down criminals and turns them over to the law, seems like a righteous way to go about your life. I like these 3 aliens and I thought the Star Brigade was a great direction to take G.I. Joe. Predacon was the one alien that stood out the most to me and although I do not own any of these, they are 3 I would like to get in hand some day. I thought there could have been a lot more astronauts, spaceships and aliens. These 3 aliens were pretty original ideas. The 80’s and 90’s had a ton of Sci-fi and space exploration and all in all I liked the originality of these 3 characters. We have made some great recent advances in discovering the universe and I thought more Star Brigade characters and maybe a space station would have been awesome. Maybe this would be a great way to reboot the franchise. Just my thoughts. I hope to see some in the future, but till then I will just dream. Do you enjoy Star Brigade and the alien characters? Let us know AFTER THE JUMP. Tomorrow I think it’s time to jump back into some classic Joes from the first few years. Stay safe everyone.
