G.I.Joe Resurgence II - "Mail-Away" Flyer

G.I. Joe Resurgence is a project by a group of customizers that imagines an entirely new, complete line of figures and vehicles that's a spiritual continuation of G.I. Joe's "glory days". PHX Customs have put together an exceptional collection of customs, but that's really just the beginning. There's an on going story arc between each year of Resurgence, as well as professionally designed card backs and other packaging. I was asked if I'd like to take a crack a recreating one of the old pack-in toy catalogs featuring Resurgence II, and I had a great time doing it! The 80's Joe-line had certain items available through mail order, and there were often designed as mission dossier flyers that doubled as order forms, like these. My modernized version points to an (imaginary) website/app instead of having an mail-order form. The first image is the "closed" front of the flyer, the second is the "opened" back, and the third is the interior.
