A new sprite of Flash from G.I.JOE, JL-JLU Wally West, Jay Garrick from the cover of Flash Comics #1 and Trickster with the yellow/orange/blue outfit were added to the G.I.JOE and DC Galleries. A Grandmaster Flash mini-logo was added to the new Music mini-logo gallery. All of these things were added to the GFX Generators, along with a new Superfriends palette for Captain Cold.

G.I.JOE: Retaliation has hit theaters and the early word I’ve heard about it so far is positive. The movie looked far more G.I.JOE-like than the first movie (which wasn’t bad, but mismanaged a few characters) from the get-go, so here’s a small Joe-themed update to celebrate that.

Custom Sprites – Beach-Head, Firefly, Jinx (masked, unmasked and blindfolded), Zartan added to the G.I.JOE page.

Mini-Logos – G.I.JOE ARAH (with tiny tagline under the main logo), The early Japanese ARAH-style logo, Cobra (IDW), Action Force (yellow stencil, and ARAH-looking versions) and Dreadnok (from the 7 pack of figures) added to the G.I.JOE section.

GFX Generators – The following things were updated:

GroupShot: 88×136 Comic now has some of the Marvel G.I.JOE comic set-ups.
Characters: Cobra (IDW logo added), Dreadnoks (Zartan sprite added), Firefly (new, 1 sprite, 3 palettes), G.I.JOE (Beach-head v1 sprite added), Jinx (new, 3 sprites), Snake-Eyes (Marvel logo)

Sprites – G.I.JOE page added with the playable characters from the first NES game and some cinema gifs from the arcade game.

Game Index – Konami’s G.I.JOE arcade game was added to the index.

GFX Generators – I added a few new backgrounds to the 384×224 scene styles and added an early fix for the text feature to prevent certain symbols from gumming up the works.

Character Updates:
SNK – Duck King and Eiji Kisaragi added. Kim Kaphwan gets some KoF 2000 sprites added.
Toys ‘n Toons – Baroness (separate from Cobra character, new sprites & SFA 3 items. Storm Shadow gets a new SFA3 Vs. Name Graphic.
Illmosis – Passion Tanaka (with mini-logo) added.

Rich Girls Laughin' title=

Custom Sprites: Passion Tanaka was added to the PrimeOp gallery page and more Baroness sprites were added to the G.I.JOE page. Speaking of Baroness sprites…

Custom Sprite Downloads – I added the VERY incomplete Baroness sprite set from the long-dead project. I also added some of the sprites from this project to the G.I.JOE Custom Sprite Page and now has her own character slot in the GFX image Generators.

There will be another small update soon to make up for having to rush this one out.

BTW: Elevator Action Deluxe fans, don’t forget that the free DLC Time Gal character is now available along with Sayo-Chan and an extra level.

Here’s the final update for the tenth anniversary year:

Games Index – Black Tiger and Magic Sword (Arcade) were added. Final Fight (Arcade) and Golden Axe (Arcade) were modified.

Sprites – Black Tiger sprites and cinema scenes added.

Custom Sprites – Storm Shadow added to the G.I.JOE page.

Game Logos – Black Dragon, Black Tiger, Magic Sword added.

Mini Logos – The G.I. JOE, Cobra, He-Man and Thundercat mini-logos from last week’s GFX Generator updates from Christmas are now in this gallery.

MugenBoss – There’s no new content but I added List Index pages for Magic Sword and Kirby.

That’s it for 2010’s updates and I hope you liked some of the new stuff and changes that the 10th anniversary brought. I’d like to thank everyone who gave me feedback about it because you helped make things better here. I hope this place brings back memories about games you forgot about, introduced some new games to those who are just getting into the scene or let you know that you weren’t the only fan of that one game your friends scream on you for liking. It’s even more important now that many of these games can be downloaded and played again for just for the first time ever on a console like Konami’s X-Men. The updates in 2011 will be a bit farther apart but I still plan to bring the love of these games to the table and maybe finish one of those long-term projects I’ve been working on in bits and pieces. No promises on that. See you next year!

Surprise, ninjas! I’m playing Santa Claus by leaving a little toy-related update:

Yo Joe!Yo Joe!

It’s Christmas time so I’ve added a Toy and Cartoon character section to the Graphic Generators. It starts off with He-Man from Masters of the Universe, Lion-O from the Thundercats and various G.I.JOEs and Cobras. The Cobras and Joes have been collected into team-based character choices except for Snake-Eyes and Scarlett who get solo slots since they already had minilogos. I disliked the old Storm Shadow sprite so much that I threw a new one together and it appears in the Generators. Snake-Eyes and Storm Shadow have optional palettes. There will be an update next week and you’ll see the new things from the generator added to the galleries. There is also a theme based on the early G.I. JOE: A Real American Hero figure card in the Group Maker. I know how crazy it is to have single character themes in the Group Maker but they’re just hanging out there until I have enough themes and fix a few things to create the Avatar maker.

Also: There’s a new sprite pack from the Sailor Moon game by Banpresto. These were ripped by Makron (thank you for giving me permission to host them) and it includes some recognizable characters that didn’t make it into the game. It’s not easy to compile things like that so please give Makron credit if you use them in a fan game.

Also, check out Illmosis to see a quick full-color Christmas pic I drew. It’s not game-related this year but you may like it. I’ll be back next week with another small update to wrap up the 10th Anniversary year.
