The New Jersey Collector’s (NJCC) returns to Cherry Hill this Sunday and they’ve got a full slate of giveaways/door prizes including another awesome fan-produced figure: Mega-Marine Mirage!
The figure you’re looking at is completely fan-produced– courtesy of the talents of guys like Kevin Watts, raginspoon,CobraStickers.com, and the casting master, nova. An update to the original 1993 Mega-Marine figure, Mirage takes a 20 year old figure design and brings it firmly forward into the 21st century with style!
Here’s the word from the convention organizers, quoted from HissTank.com:
We are now just a few days away from the August 18th Summer NJCC, here is full gallery 40+ images of NJCC Mirage!
Mirage was introduced in 1993 as part of the Mega Marines subline of G.I. Joe A Real American Hero! Make sure to check back to see the full figure with card art and sticker sheet.

I’ll be honest here– this figure is a knock-out in my opinion. It’s a modern update of a classic design that is still immediately recognizable as Mirage! The overall parts combo works to produce a figure that shows that fan-produced customs can meet if not exceed the quality of Hasbro-produced pieces at times. My only regret with this figure is that I have no way to attend the con this weekend and therefore won’t be able to snag one. For those of you who are lucky enough to do so, appreciate him for the 1:18 piece of plastic awesome that he is!
This is just proof that when the “A-Team” of nova, raginspoon, cobrastickers, and Kevin Watts come together on a project good things will happen.
