Re: Best of Battle

I remember a story called Invasion that I really related to at the time set during the Falklands War as it was from a young boy's perspective. I always thought it was a bit controversial to set a story in that war so soon after the real life events.

Re: the baron's helmet

I think it's to show power and produce fear.

What would scare you more? The Baron wearing his iron mask and only being able to see his eyes or Osama Bin Laden wearing his robes?

Re: Action Force the computer game

A while ago I dug up my old CBM64 to see my old 'über cool' games. Among them were: Platoon, Commando, Who dares wins, Rambo, Beach Head I & II, Mission Impossible, GI Joe. In Platoon the tunnel phase (3D 1st person view, really wow in 1987) scared me to f*ck as a teenager. GI Joe was so cool to c...

Re: Action Force the computer game

I had Action Force on the Amstrad CPC 464, ahhh.... the memories, I think I might still have it stored away at my parents house somewhere.

Actually I think the game was a bit pants if I remember rightly.

Re: Action Force Original Artwork

I've posted this at the IDW boards to see if we can get any more help on this, it's a bit of a wild stab in the dark but I think that we've hit a bit of a brick wall on this one at the moment.

Re: rallying cries: full force, yo joe, blood for the baron....

Yes 'Yo Joe' is an embarrasing battle cry. The first time I read it in the American comic I winced. My memories of 'Full Force' are from watching the Action Force cartoon when the characters voice would suddenly change completely in a very bad dub. Blood for the Baron is by far the best battle cry!!

Re: Its Official IDW has the License

I don't think we're the only ones, I think a lot of fans are just a bit knocked back at what's just happened. The thread I created at joereloaded that you posted to has picked up similar people with the same opinion albeit not as much as I thought. You've got to remember that DDP Joe regularly outse...

GI Joe Stop Gap

I'm just interested to find out what people will be reading after the end of America's Elite or any advice on good stuff to read. I've been stockpiling some things to keep me going. The Virgin Dan Dare Mini Series. (I read Eagle from Battle merging into it upto it's demise and I like the concept of ...
