The recently released Acid Rain Raptor Speeder Mk I has begun to find its way in to the hands of happy collectors. One of those collectors, Hisstank.com forum member zerogouki has shared an amazing assortment of images of the Raptor with us and in turn, we wanted to share them with you! |
In case you haven't been following the Acid Rain World, here's a description of the Raptor from our friend and AR creator, Mr. Kit Lau -
Raptor is the nickname given to the Speeder Mk I by the Marine Soldiers. The production of Raptor originated from the defects and inadequacies of the ST-1 Stronghold. Since the time that the Stronghold was mass produced, several severe problems were identified. Although Strongholds firepower is particularly strong, its speed and defensive ability have become its fatal flaw. To cope with the anti-tank soldiers and the above problems, the strategy of the Marines must be adjusted. As such, an easy to control, flexible, fast and with a certain standard of firepower machine guard came to exist.
With the development of Speeder Mk. II has become mature, the Raptor has become less active on the battlefield. Given its still reliable nature, it can be found on many battlefields, although it is not the main combat platform used.

Wow, this month sure flew by! It feels like just yesterday we were introduced to the G.I.Joe Resurgence Custom Project. I want to take a moment and tip my hat to Oreo Builder, Dusty 79, Bucky and all of those included with this project, as it's been a fun ride all month long! |
Now, let's get down to business (and wait until you see todays offering!) -
Day 28 brought us even more classic updated goodness in the form of the Jungle Fox with Skidmark and none other than the G.I.Joe Commanding Officer, Hawk!
From the desk of Bucky:
The Jungle Fox was one of the first vehicles I had in mind in the infancy of the project, when it was still "project 96". As one of my favorite vehicles as a child, it was something I had long thought about painting up, but never had a real good reason until the project came along. Skidmark follows a very popular recipe, one of those figures that is so easy to make that everybody should do it.
Hawk was the last figure I made, at the last minute. As I was reading all the filecards that GI Trekker and Justin (generalsjoes.com) had written up, as well as the tagline Oreobuilder had wrote, Hawk was mentioned a lot, yet we had no representation. I slapped the body together, made sure that the paint wouldn't chip, and borrowed the head from Dusty79's Throttle figure.
Day 29 was interesting. Why so? Because it brought us two characters that have been done to absolute death, yet look, feel and fit absolutely perfectly within this project. It's been a long time since I've been able to say "OMG WANT!" when it comes to these two names. Check out Cobra Commander in Ceremonial Battle Armor and Duke!
From the desk of Oreobuilder:
When Bucky and I started brainstorming for this project, we had a bunch of new characters on our list. We felt that bringing in new blood was a way to refresh GI Joe. However, some characters are so deeply associated to the brand, that we could not bypass them. Cobra Commander and Duke are two such characters. However, since we have been getting so many CCs and Dukes in the last few years, we thought that they could be mail away exclusives instead. That way, they would be available, but they would not clog up pegs.
I have had the parts for this version of Cobra Commander sitting in a bin waiting to be painted for a couple of years. When we decided to add some old favorites to our line plan, Cobra Commander (and a slew of other figures) finally got put onto the list of custom priorities.
From the desk of Bucky:
Mail away Duke was another figure slated for "Project: 96". He was to be a repainted version of the 91 Duke. Once we started to shift gears, it gave me a little more freedom as to how to do his look right. The figure is still loosely based on the 91 version color wise, seen in this photo.
Now, are you ready for something beyond awesome? Well then check out todays offering...the Foxtrot Class G.I.Joe Orca with Riptide (LCV Operator) and Broadside (LCV Gunner)! My thoughts? BA-NANAS.
From the desk of Oreobuilder:
Last year, a friend of mine spotted the Playmobil Ferry and suggested it would make a good GI Joe Landing Craft. At the time, I had just finished my GI Joe Train, so I was not in the mood to start another largish vehicle project. Still, when I saw the set at a good price, I picked one up. I unboxed it and fiddled around with it a bit, but by that time, other projects, namely the 50th Anniversary Tribute and Project New Sculpt, were in full swing, so the Landing Craft project got put on ice.
In March, Bucky and I started brainstorming for this project. The landing craft was in the back on my mind and I was not sure I wanted to do it, but I decided that this was a great opportunity to get off my butt and get it done. Im glad I did, Im really happy with the way it turned out.
For the drivers, my goal was to do as little painting as possible, so I tried to choose my parts wisely.
Best part? There's still one day left! Join us after the break to check out all of the G.I.Joe Resurgence offerings from Day 1 until now and check back tomorrow for the Grand Finale!
