Photoblog/Let's Joe! -September 2015

This month, Let's Joe! is back. Our subject is Sergeant First Class Ian Campbell rockin' out with his…uh, dressed for a bit of desert recon. Ian is a GI Joe Super Articulated body from the early-mid-2000s with uniform and weapons being a mix of mostly BBI and Dragon stuff from the same era. The body armor and chest rig are a set produced by ACE again in the mid 2000s. His weapons include an M4 rifle with ACOG scope, a SIG P226 9mm pistol with tactical light, and both a Mk 3 fighting knife and a KaBar knife. Although I wasn't thinking of a specific campaign or time period here, the combination of desert and woodland camo would not have been uncommon in the early days of the war in Afghanistan and Iraq. You'll also note my usual set up of boonie hat, chest rig and lighter weight body armor that has been featured on several of my figures this year. I did try a "3 day" pack on him but I didn't like the over all effect and he seemed to be drowning in straps and belts. So, like a lot of my other guys, he's going "high speed, low drag". Anyway, I hope you all enjoy the photos and check back for more soon!


  1. Oh man I'd hate to run into him on a dark night, he sure looks tough. What a square jaw he has (just quietly, I'd like to think it was a glass one, then I might stand a fighting chance LOL!).
    Hope your week is going well.

  2. Thanks! I realized I had this guy finished and ready to post some time ago but had never done the photo session.

    Unfortunately, the week hasn't been going well. I have so far avoided the temptation to unload a rant on Mrs G's shitty now-former employer (ooops!) but hey, there's more time for family, household projects and blogging!
