I posted a quick digibash of Spearhead in the FSS 3.0 Preview thread of Spearhead and Max (http://www.gijoeclub.com/forums/showthread.php?383-FSS-3-0-Preview-G-I-JOE-POINT-MAN-SPEARHEAD!). Fellow member jfaria suggested a poll so here it is - what colors do you want Spearhead to be? The club previewed a muted realistic brown camo, I suggested a muted orange, or do we go all ARAH with fluorescent orange?

Here's the picture I posted in the other thread showing the original and muted orange camos:

574

And because Cloaked Raven asked for it, here's one with the fluorescent orange camo:

576

And here's the vintage ARAH figure:

575

Thanks again Allew. You got the poll up quick!
I voted for the "muted orange" depicted in the right photo, but honestly I like the look of the reddish brown too. The brown camo is maybe too much like Duke v4, so I think orange is the way to go.
Okay, Club admins, are you okay going with the majority vote on this one? (however it turns out)

I voted for fluorescent orange but I can meet in the middle if we had to in order to at least get it to look close to the original.

I voted/like the muted orange, but I would still buy Spearhead if it stayed brown.

I went with muted orange little more like the original. They both look good though.

Do we have an approximation of neon-type orange camo?

Muted orange camo, like the 2nd pic that was mocked-up.

I voted for fluorescent orange but would gladly take the muted orange as well. Do not like the realistic brown.

I'll add another digibash in the first post with a brighter orange - hope it's neon enough! To be real ARAH accurate the backpack should be orange as well but I wanted to focus on the different camo colors - who says a leopard, err bobcat can't change his spots? :)


Thanks again Allew. You got the poll up quick!


Anytime, glad to be of service!

Wow - thanks for posting this. I think it makes a huge difference staying with orange (muted or florescent) versus brown.

I'm a big supporter of the club. I don't think they don't get credit for the great job they do. But every now and then though I have to scratch my head at a decision. Not trying to be negative or anything, it just seems that when they announced V1 colors at the con we all had an idea of what we were expecting and the feedback was overwhelmingly positive. To then alter that course seems like you're inviting disappointment and creating an argument among fans that doesn't' need to exist. I just don't believe anyone would have made a fuss and a poll stating, 'if only they'd used brown.' My .02.

I like the first two, but given that the 1990s Duke has similar colors to the first, I'd go with the second so that it looks more unique if that Duke is ever made.

I expect GIJCC to step up soon and acknowledge that a muted orange is the most logical pattern to adopt for Spearhead. Great work allow! :)

Allew, you should set up separate polls with pics for the rest of these figures. Alpine and Night Creeper Leader have already been discussed on the forums with regards to their color scheme preferences (and some degree of nerd rage).

That muted orange looks really nice.

Mr Hebime, there's a poll now started by Cloaked Raven for Night Creeper Leader (http://www.gijoeclub.com/forums/showthread.php?389-FSS-Night-Creeper-Leader-What-color). I considered starting polls for him and Alpine but I wanted to try my hand at digibashing some of the other color decos first. There doesn't seem to be that much of an controversy with Alpine's colors as there is with Spearhead and NCL.

Thanks everyone for your kinds words on my digibashes of Spearhead!

This figure will be easy to customize into Duke.

The brighter orange. Way better looking than the brown.

I went with realistic brown. He will fit in well with Dusty and the other desert camo guys. I don't like the orange look at all, not even on the vintage figure.

I vote brown, but if it has to be orange, I hope it's a more burnt umber shade and NOT neon. Leave neon back in the 80's where it belongs! ;)

Please be aware that this thread included an unofficial poll and not a poll/survey conducted by the GIJCC Staff (per GIJCC Forum Guidelines #9).

We will make some adjustments to the final figure but not a complete deco change.
