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
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)
Klink: Schultz! Where is that radio?
Schultz: They didn't tell me!
Klink: Find it at once!
Schultz: Jawohl, Herr Kommandant.
Klink: Hogan! Where does that voice come from?
Hogan: From the accent, I'd say England.
Hogan's Heroes" (1965)
