Op Twitter vond ik nog wat extra informatie over Retelo, waarmee we het moeten doen totdat de filecard van Larry Hama verschijnt:
Radio teletype operator (hence Retelo), with a mix of old (translation: EMP proof) and new technology.
Drones and HUDs, balanced by carrier pigeon and tactile QWERTY keyboard. Will share the dossier soon, slow drip all week to build the audience.
Operation: Recall Team
Ron Rudat served as the G.I. Joe figure designer from the launch of A Real American Hero in 1982 until he moved off of the brand in 1986. Ron also designed several vehicles, decals sheets, and the timeless Cobra logo!
Kirk Bozigian was called to spearhead the G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero launch in 1982. Kirk worked with Ron Rudat to refine each figure design, and continued to serve the brand as Brand Manager and Vice President of Boys Toys through 1994.
Larry Hama joined the team in advance of the 1982 A Real American Hero launch. His imagination transformed action figures into a universe of entertainment as he authored hundreds of G.I. Joe comics and file cards.
Ed Morrill, a package design and brand identity executive, was called to serve G.I. Joe in 1969. His first assignment was the 1970 Adventure Team rebranding. Morrill served for 20 years, overseeing packaging design and illustration.
Doug Hart joined Hasbro in 1984 as an illustrator – initially working on My Little Pony. He was called to serve the G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero brand in 1987 and painted beautiful figure and box art until then end of the line in 1994.
Bill Merklein was perhaps the most prolific figure sculptor behind the G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero brand. He worked for Hasbro as a freelance sculptor from 1983 to 1989 and during that time he sculpted over 70 G.I. Joe figures.
MARK PENNINGTON (not pictured, as we have not filmed together yet):
Mark Pennington worked at Hasbro on G.I.Joe as the second full-time figure designer from December 31st, 1985 to August 1988. In that time he helped develop over 75 figures.
