Look, anyone who’s been following JBL for any length of time knows that this site LOVES the Rank & File Guide series. (Yes, each word is a link to a different post!) They’re some of the most detailed modern G.I. Joe reference works available and have a proud place on my reference shelf next to books by Mark Bellomo, Dan Klingensmith, and 3DJoes.com.
Volume 4 made a “special edition” debut at The Last Joe Con this year from Fun Publications with a special cover and insert pages. However, that was just a sample– a taste of what the full-fledged volume would contain. Now, G.I. Joe fans and toy collectors can order their own copy of this exciting volume that delves into the world of “the exclusives”…
However, don’t take our word for it… check out the press release from “Noted Author” James Kavanaugh himself!
The adventure continues to evolve in Rank & File — A Guide to Third-Generation 4” G.I. Joe Action Figures!Official Press Release from Noted Author James Kavanaugh
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 refined, sans O-ring design spanned across ten years of the product line and, as of this printing, still used for exclusives. During this time, the G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero line was further catapulted into pop culture’s mainstream by two live-action motion pictures.
These movies changed the landscape of G.I. Joe in a global, multi-media market and various exclusives were made available between movies and mainline series. 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 forth volume in a series that displays every action figure produced as Convention Exclusives and for the G.I. Joe Collector’s Club; 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 produced as exclusives 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 between 2007 and 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. Joe: A Real American Hero.
