Welcome to the Outpost. Tonight anyone with clear sky’s will be able to see the great conjunction. I have been fallowing Mars Jupiter and Saturn for the past several months and tonight Saturn and Jupiter will be so close they will be hard to distinguish as one. So in honor of this great phenomenon I’m going to talk about some G.I.Joe Star Brigade.
Early on G.I. Joe had episodes in space, but it wasn’t till the nineties that the Star Brigade was formed. I love the exploration of space and have visited the NASA space center in Florida. It is so fascinating to see these massive vehicles that have ventured off into space and retuned to tell the story. It really puts into perspective how small we actually are in the universe. As a whole I love the Star Brigade. Some of my favorite characters include Sci-Fi, Countdown, and Ozone. There are many other great figures of original characters like Roadblock, Destro, and Cobra Commander. There are a ton of characters that would have been awesome to get a Star Brigade figure of such as Ace, Baroness, and Lady Jaye to name a few. I hope someday we get some modern updates of Star Brigade figures.
Along with figures there have been some cool space craft including one of the grails of collecting the 1987 Defiant space shuttle. The Star brigade brought smaller more manageable ships such as the Invader and Starfighter and I think it would be cool to see a few more small modern Star ships made. I still think this could be a successful line but who knows if there will ever be another Star Brigade. Who loves the Star Brigade? Which are you favorite characters? Who would you love to see as a modern style figure? Sound off AFTER THE JUMP and let us know!
