Rank & File vol 3, the next installment in the ultimate modern G.I. Joe reference series, is coming soon!
At JBL we’re very exciting to report that noted author James Kavanaugh’s next exciting reference volume is coming very soon! Volume 1 and Volume 2 proved to be amazing and this next installment looks to be James’ best work yet! (That’s saying something as RAHC Guide was pretty AMAZING.)
Check out the official release:
The adventure continues to evolve in Rank & File — A Guide to Third-Generation 4” G.I. Joe Action Figures!
After a brief hiatus in 2006 that allowed G.I. Joe to flourish in other areas, G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero went in a new stylistic direction that is still predominately used today! 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.
The Rank & File guide volume 3 displays every G.I. Joe action figure produced between the Celebrating 30 Years of A Real American Hero / Renegades, Retaliation, 50, and Basic G.I. Joe Asst. series, complete with every accessory and variation produced. Not only are the accessories shown, they were carefully cataloged in an upcoming volume that will guarantee the proper shade of accessory goes to the appropriate action figure. To top it off, every vehicle and playset released in the 4″ era is documented and every easily removable piece is shown individually photographed —ensuring collector completion.
This full color, forty-eight page resource manual beautifully illustrates the four series’ 148 action figures, twenty-two vehicles and every accessory, including all known variations. Not only is every accessory present and accounted for, they have each been assigned a unique number and identified throughout the resource guide. Each action figure was carefully examined between its initial run and any further re-releases to ensure accurate samples are clearly and concisely presented, perfect for the collector who is identifying individual action figures or sorting through unorganized lots.
Whether you are a seasoned or rejuvenated collector, enthusiast, or toy vendor, the Rank & File series is the decisive compilation for G.I. Joe action figures, vehicles, and playsets produced from 2007 to today. Let the Rank & File guides serve as a reference for completion or a scrapbook to the next big turning point of G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero.
The MSRP for The Rank & File guide Volume 3 is $20 and available at www.rahcguide.com. Buyer will pay all additional shipping and handling costs. If you have purchased the R.A.H.C. guides before, the process will be very similar. This guide was self-published and produced in quantities reflecting previous sales so do not hesitate in ordering if owning a guide is a priority.
Seriously– if you’ve ever met James Kavanaugh you know his passion for G.I. Joe runs deep. The painstaking attention to detail presented in these books makes them not only some of the best G.I. Joe reference material out there but also some of the best collector’s guides compiled. Seriously– keep your eyes peeled to RAHCGuide.com and order your copy!
