November Banner Contest

It’s that time of the Month again! Wait.. what? Oh.. right.. The theme for the November Banner Contest is No One Left Behind Here is a quote from Banner Contest runner Major Blood: “This months theme will be getting the injured to safety.  This can be by dragging, helping them with multiple people, carrying on their shoulders, even on a stretcher if wanted.  Basically, it has to be showing the injured getting saved one way or another.” The Monthly Banner Contest has been one of the most successful and favorite features here on the Fighting 1:18th.  The contest started on our original site before the infamous crash of 2011.  For those that are new to the contest,  it’s very simple.  A forum member can submit a dio picture entry into the contest.  Towards the end of the month we place all the photos ...

Member Highlight – Footloose

Here at the fighting 118th we appreciate all the great pictures and customs that everyone shares with the site. To say thank you we do a member highlight on occasion to showcase a member’s work.

A: Honestly I just picked up my camera one day and ... Read More »

G.I. Joe Club Footloose Review

Why on earth such a generic character has been on my “25th wish list” since the G.I. Joe 25th Anniversary line launched back in 2007, I’ll never know. Footloose is dated, he’s a third-tier character at best, and he’s almost as generic as Grunt is (and I hate Grunt). It likely has to do with his character in the Sunbow cartoon. Often teamed up with the likewise goofball team of Bazooka, Alpine and Quick Kick, the probably-a-pothead-although-he-was-never-explicitly-defined-as-a-pothead Footloose bumbled his way through battles with his bazooka and the munchies. He had a giant pillar crash on him in the episode closing credits. Not the most reliable soldier. So why did I want him in my modern collection so badly? No idea, to be honest. But I just did. And since he’s a fairly generic figure made from easily-reused/reusable parts (pretty ... Read More »
