Weekend Warriors: December/January
 
December 10th – 12th: All Out Battles
Remember how when you were a kid every playtime ended with at least a few things blown up and brutal dog-piles of dead figures in our imagination? That’s how I want this weekend to look only with special effects, brutal and senseless.

December 17th – 19th: Troop Builders
Post shots of your many multiples of different grunts.

December 24th – 26th: Off Topic
Gundams, Transformers, Star Wars or whatever, anything goes this weekend but no Joe.

December 31th – January 2nd: Behind Enemy Lines
Captured or hiding in the shadows, there's sure to be some fun out of a guy running amuck in the enemy's base.

Chose Christmas weekend for Off Topic since surely a few will like it, and odds are not many will be on. Hope you guys like the themes for this month and if not feel free to give suggestions.

Next weekend sounds like a good one to get the 'Noks out for. :D

And I agree about X-Mas weekend.

Scarrviper 12-05-2010 06:05 PM

Sounds good to me! These will be fun, but tricky because of the weather.

dancontrino 12-05-2010 06:19 PM

Are Gobots acceptable for xmas weekend :D ?

Ctrl_Z 12-09-2010 11:38 AM

Aw. All these sound really fun. I'm gonna try and do all of 'em .. If I remember heh.

The BATman 12-09-2010 01:35 PM

Tricky... Am I going to spend my limited amount of spare time on shopping for Christmas presents for my family, or am I going to spend it on photographing my toys ? Hm... :confused:

temedoro15 12-09-2010 06:33 PM

hmmm, interesting topics, I will do an effort to do at least one.
In the "All Out Battles" weekend, what do you mean with "only with special effects"? you mean the pile of corpses, fire and destruction can only be computer generated?

Ah, sorry, I suppose I phrased that poorly. Nah, you don't have to add any special effects. Just take a pic of some kind of big battle.

Man i want in on this. Stupid cell phone camera. Maybe after the holidays i'll get me a new digital and join in the fun.

Agent Viper 12-15-2010 08:13 AM

The 17th through the 19th, does that just mean greenshirts and regular no names?

I say go for it with the cellphone. Just remember, those things don't usually focus under 6 feet, so plan a wide shot.

We had one those once a couple years ago and it was great to see what everyone came up with. Wouldn't mind seeing that theme again in the near future.

Ideas for future weekend warrior themes. These are just some things that me and the family could think of to do or want to see. Not 100% sure some of these werent old W/W topics that I have seen over the years on this site though. I know I have seen some pics on here with some of this type of theme used really well. If all else fail, collect all the old themes and recycle.

------------------------------------------------------------



Scenes from regular movies using joes (include pic/link of the scene to compare)

Scenes from the GI Joe movie original or new

Improvising- when all else fails, use what you can to fight

When toys come to life- when they try to take over the home

Historic- make hostoric scenes of history

time travel

Out of their element- character put in extremely opposite situations or environments

Losing battle- when troops or character are losing the fight

The aftermath of battle

off hours time-- what they do on thier own time

Episode- make a scene that is unmistakeable of your favorite episode if GI Joe

Role reversal- joes will be bad and Cobra will be good

Budget cuts- the joes and Cobras improvise when funding is scarce

Whats in a name- good reasons that they are named what they are

Unlikely hero- the lesser knowns have their chance for glory

Battle of the toy lines- GI joe/Cobra battle other toy lines

Blackmail- what the characters dont want anyone to know about

When price is no object- what if they had no spending limit and only imagination held back the ordering of things (no budget restrictions)

Something is wrong- can you spot what shouldnt be? (like seek and find)

Officer exchange program- putting an opposing member with the others side to learn

Hollywood- Time for Cold Slither to reunite and other music or celebrities to come to be

Only in my dreams- what a character dreams about (far fetched)

Weaknes- they all have one, lets find out

Gamers- Putting figures in games (Board, video, tabletop, etc)

Scale has no limit- let the sizes hold you back (ex: a joe on a date with Barbie)

Kidnapping: in progress, botched, mistaken

Joe versus nature: the battle of the cat, to catch a goldfish, etc

Insert joe here: putting them interacting in everyday life (participating)

Battle in Space

Battle on Land

Battle on the seas

Batle in the skies

Joes/Cobras on vacation

Joechat: figures discover the webcam

Joes in regular "joe" jobs - mechanic, cashier, salesman, etc

Diorama Fail- when the dio doesnt work right, breaks, falls, doesnt cooperate, etc

Psychadelic- out of this world imagry

Life on the line

Joes in crime scenes

Fairytale Joe- scenes from fairytales

Attacks while you sleep

Every man/woman for themself- run for your lives.

Modeling- Showing their stuff, equipment, and gear on the catwalk (or something like it)
