31 Days of GI JOE – Bazooka

Well this wraps up a month of G.I. Joe drawings (and gives me a whole bunch of cards to sell if I get a table at Fallcon!). The plan was to swing into September and continue the trend by doing a character from the X-Men each day… Not sure if I will be doing that for sure or not. Feeling a little wore down today and thinking I might take a day or two off. Guess you will have to tune in tomorrow to find out for sure!

Day 31 is Bazooka

Bazooka is my all time favorite Joe. After all he is a hometown boy from the Iron Range of MN.

On a little side note, While he himself does not show up in the live action GI Joe movies, his Shirt does in the background of one of the scenes…

Filecard Information

File Name: Delgado, Hector X.
SN: 924-92-5456
Grade: CPO
Birthplace: Chula Vista, CA
Primary Specialty: Gunners Mate
Secondary Specialty: Machinist

Shipwreck grew up in the shadow of the Navy, specifically the shadow of the sprawling San Diego Navy Yards. He enlisted at the youngest possible age with his parents’ permission and proceeded to serve with distinction in the Mekong Delta where hand to hand fighting with river pirates, smugglers and insurgents was the order of the day. Put in time at “Gitmo” and Yokosuka and was on hand at certain carrier-initiated operations in the Middle East.

Graduated Naval Gunnery School Great Lakes. Qualified expert: M-16, M-14, Browning .50 cal, 20mm Oerliken AA gun, M1911A1.

“Shipwreck is your quintessential sailor. He can splice a line, fry powdered eggs in the tooth of a gale and eat them, tell taller tales than a Senate Appropriations committee and take a three day liberty in Thule Greenland and come back smiling.”

File Name: Moore, Harlan W.
SN: RA773658456
Grade: E-6 (Sergeant)
Birthplace: Rutland, Vermont
Primary Specialty: Arctic Ski Patrol
Secondary Specialty: Rifle Instructor

Snow Job was a major Olympic Biathlon contender. He enlisted initially for the special training and support privileges that the Army gives to Olympic champions. However, to the consternation of Arm PR flacks, Snow Job volunteered and was accepted into the GI Joe team. Qualified Expert: all NATO long-range sniper rifles, XMLR-3A laser rifle. Submitted by Rock ‘n Roll: “You think we call him Snow Job because he does his job on skis? Negative. He’s a con artist, pure and simple, except when he picks up his rifle – sure as heck, something’s gonna fall down!”

31 Days of GI JOE – Zartan

zartan1 Drawing for each day. I am going to start by doing one for each letter of the alphabet… Then an additional five of my personal favorite joes…

I really wanted to do a Joe or Cobra for every letter of the Alphabet. Turns out though that there has never been a character on either side with a name starting with Y! So instead today I give you one of the very first Joe figures I had when I was a kid…

Day 26 is Zartan

Filecard Information

File Name: Unknown
Alias: Too numerous to list
Birthplace: Unknown
Motto: “I can be anyone, anywhere. You will never know that you are talking to me, unless I wish it.”

ZARTAN can alter his skin color at will to blend in with his environment. He is also a master of make-up and disguise, a ventriloquist, a linguist (over 20 languages and dialects), an acrobatic-contortionist and a practitioner of several mystic martial arts. Very little is known of his background and origins, but most security agencies agree that he must have had European military academy training (probably St. Cyr).
