Behind the Scenes – Law blister card

G.I. Joe 1987 Law blister card close-up

Something simple today:  A blister card front sample for 1987 Law.  No blister, no figure, no accessories.

I’m attributing the artwork to Hector Garrido.

G.I. Joe 1987 Law blister card

Many fans know Law was sculpted to resemble Kirk Bozigian, number 2 marketer for G.I. Joe when it relaunched in 1982.  In fact, several figures from the whole ’82-’94 span resemble Hasbro employees, but it was much less often that the package paintings did.  I can’t find my Law figure, so that’s why there’s no accompanying photo today, but the toy does match the person, and in this case, the painting appears to as well.

    I’m in love with all ’87 card art. I can’t get enough of it.

  2. Agreed. Things start to get colorful without being garish, and there’s a lot of energy to the poses.
