I think that a coffee table type book would be great. It would be great to have a full page of the artwork and then a page with the Carded figure and file card.
It could be separated into 2 books within itself. Green cover for the Joe section. Flip the book over and have the back cover become the front cover for Cobra. Have everything be chronological...
and perhaps a section or separate book for vehicle artwork.

Very Cool Idea. Currently I am keeping all my open art card on several shoeboxes, but this is a great idea. Can I throw in another idea, how about scan front and filecard.

This is a fantastic idea and long overdue. Every comic book company out there has large coffee table books filled with all kinds of artwork including concept art and things of that nature.
Hasbro could go a couple ways with this...1. Make one giant hardcover that has ALL the Joe art work from Adventure Team to ARAH and so forth, with linear notes on each box and card.
2. Being that ARAH is so big, a Joe/Cobra book where each page is the full color card then the facing page being the actual file card and perhaps notes from the artist, writers and a line from Larry Hama....include vehicles, concept art, mail order stuff--then maybe the last chapter cater to things like lunch boxes, walkie talkies, sleeping bags etc.
It really should be done...hell LucasArts releases Star Wars books like this every 2 months!

I'm gonna have to say no. Only because I just have no room for such a thing, what with Joes & Star Wars EVERYWHERE!

That would be awesome , then I can sell all my carded vintage stuff and empty vehicle boxes. Mattel is doing a book for SDCC with the box art form the MOTU line . Would deff love to have some of that stuff framed and on the wall. I would love a Ferret box art or some of the smaller outposts .

Only if it's the original card art, not the stuff they redid for the 25th line.
Please check out http://hmcsgreatadventure.com/ - it's a mix of sci-fi, humour and the friggin' Royal Canadian Navy, eh!

As long as they don't use the 'remake' art work from the 25th line, I'm okay with it. Why not have a book with all artwork? Single carded figures, vheicles, posters, covers from the catalogues included with toys. So much artwork out there, I can't imagine it all in one book.
