On more than one or two occasions I’ve shared my love of the Transformer and G.I. Joe toy lines…and their comic book series…and their animated shows. But back in my youth I always felt that something was missing from each and when Marvel Comics published their G.I. Joe and Transformers mini-series in 1986 it was like a light bulb went off over my head.
I hadn’t mixed the two toy lines together until that comic series but I always wished that G.I. Joe could somehow have Transformers characters that fit in with 3¾-inch scale line…because…no offense to Chuckles, he isn’t going to last long against Soundwave with that handgun.
Thankfully 800 Pound Productions and his friend AirMax decided to fix that very problem by making a few custom Transformer/G.I. Joe figures, in this case Optimus Prime for the Joe/Autobot team and Soundwave for Cobra/Decepticons!
