The latter half of 2007 brought an all-new construct to G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero action figures, a new stylistic direction that is still prevalent today! This new sans O-ring design was further catapulted into the mainstream with G.I. Joe’s first live-action motion picture, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. This movie changed the landscape of G.I. Joe in a global, multi-media market. Not only did fans get to revisit some of their most cherished icons within the G.I. Joe mythos, they were also introduced to new characters that are now known and loved.
This guide is the second volume in a series to display every action figure produced during The Rise of Cobra and The Pursuit of Cobra eras, complete with every accessory and variation produced. Not only are the accessories shown, they have been carefully cataloged in an upcoming volume that guarantees the proper shade of accessory belongs with the correct action figure. To top it off, every vehicle and playset released in these series have been documented and every easily removable piece has been individually photographed; ensuring collector completion.
Whether you’re a seasoned, returning, or novice collector, an enthusiast, or a toy vendor, the Rank & File guide series is the definitive compilation of G.I. Joe action figures, vehicles and playsets produced from 2007 to today. Let the Rank & File guide series serve as a reference for completion or a scrap book to the next big turning point of G.I.
