HERE ARE THE IMAGES FOR EPISODE 5
Unproduced ARBCO Play Set
ARBCO Play Set legend
Unproduced General Hawk concept
Unproduced Bomb Disposal (Possibly Long-Arm)
RETALIATION FIGURES BELOW IN FOLLOWING POST. FOLLOWED BY NIGHT-VIPER AND CRIMSON GUARD. SEE BELOW
NIGHT-VIPER AND CRIMSON GUARD IN NEXT POST. HERE ARE PICS OF THE RETALIATION FIGURES.
THESE ARE ALL PREPRODUCTION SAMPLES. THEY MAY NOT REFLECT FINAL PRODUCT.
30TH ANNIVERSARY NIGHT-VIPER AND CRIMSON GUARD
OUR BEST GUESS IS THAT THESE ARE NOT THE "VERSIONS" OF THESE FIGURES THAT WILL BE RELEASED IN WAVE 5 OF RETALIATION.
WE COULD BE WRONG. BUT MOST LIKELY (LISTEN TO THE PODCAST FOR OUR REASONS) THESE ARE THE VERSIONS THAT WERE SLATED FOR THE 30TH ANNIVERSARY (AS DISCUSSED ON EPISODE 2). WHO KNOWS. THEY COULD BE EXACTLY WHAT WE GET. BUT USUALLY WHEN THINGS GET CANCELED OR HELD BACK... BY THE TIME THEY SEE RELEASE THEY GO THROUGH SOME CHANGES. SOMETIMES NOT. AGAIN LISTEN TO THE EPISODE IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS.
KEEP IN MIND THESE ARE PREPRODUCTION SAMPLES AND MAY NOT REFLECT THE FINAL PRODUCT.

LISTEN TO EPISODE 5 of JoeDeclassified: SPEC-OPS HERE:
and make sure you check out the Low-Light mystery-solving art here:
That ARBCO playset would have been cool. At least we got the Toxo-Lab. Thanks for sharing some pictures.
Am I blind and missed the Lowlight image? You showed me for show prep but I can't find the e-mail. Regardless, the submachine gun looks different than the final produced gun and I think the extention on the leg was never removed hence the gimmick is lost. I didn't recognize the gun as being another figure's weapon but would need to see the photos again (assuming the slim chance all the other experts missed it )
The googled unproduced character art was produced in 1985? If so, that would have maded the final figure produced in 1987 and would make it in line with Battle Force 2000. One thing we as collectors need to constantly remind ourself is that this preproduction stuff was cancelled for a reason. I don't think he would have gone over very well. It would also make sense that because these designers put the effort into these drawings and were required to meet deadlines; they would most likely take what was successful (if anything) from failed designs and move forward with them in the hopes to minimize R&D costs. In this case, the arms went to Blocker and the legs went to Taurus (per Nova's insight).
Cough cough. If you read the show notes above and actually listened to the episode... you'd know the image for Low-Light is over at YoJoe.com.
This is just what I have been looking for!!! Great podcast!!! AWESOME!!!
These pics have really changed my mind on the Retaliation Crimson Guard. I was already planning to army-build the Night Viper, but until now I'd been planning to pass on the CG. Thanks for the awesome pics!
