Seen: G.I. Joe Mini-Fig Release and Art Show @ BAIT
Two Saturdays ago, The Loyal Subjects and BAIT collaborated on a G.I. Joe event featuring the release of the new G.I. Joe minis from TLS and an art show offering visions bold, cute, and sexy. If you grew up on the cartoon, this is the event for you – celebrating all things Joe – toys and art.
The new toy series features a total of eleven designs including three chases – hooded cobra commanders, black hooded cobra commander, red ninja. While the minis have a designer toy body style they also come with detailed weapons and other accessories – a nice mix. The designer of the mini-fig series, Les Schettkoe was on-hand to sign the toys for collectors.
The art show featured original art and prints from a large group of artists including Jerome Lu, Tracy Tubera, Maxx242, Gregory Siff, Kwestone, and more. Some of the highlight pieces include Les Schettkoe’s Cobra Trooper spraying graffiti over the Joes’ logo, sexy visions of the baroness by Maxx242 and Menso and Tracy Tubera’s stylized Storm Shadow and Snake Eyes complete with oversized kicks. Mixed in with the art, BAIT also showcased their G.I. Joe toy collection from the original Hasbro action figures to hyper-realistic 1:6 scale figures.
If you’re out near Bait’s flagship store in Diamond Bar, drop by and check out the art and the new G.I. Joe figures from The Loyal Subjects.
