I had been kicking around this idea for some time now. I wanted to do a drawing as a fun thing to add to my portfolio. I had done some doodles, but do to other commitments didn't get to finally work it out until now.

Next to Mego's and Gi Joe, Big Jim and the Pack rank high up there in my toy world. So this is my
little homage to them.....and still wishing Mattel bring him and the pack back.....

Awesome! You kept just enough Kirby in there to homage while maintaining your own flavor. Great stuff!!!

Wonderful--I like it a lot.

I'd like to see Big Jim return, too.

Thanks Guys...Yup!!! Chris I had to throw Kirby in there just a little...it was his art that pulled me in to buy the Pack.

and Yes Scott, I agree I wish Mattel would bring the boys back. I loved this line so much!

Thanks man Totally appreciate it!!! it would be great if Mattel could bring this back and modernize it. I could see an adventure cartoon done of them with some updates. Mattel could easily make anniversary versions of them.......I just don't understand it. This line did pretty good for them. With the right updates you could introduce them to a whole new generation of kids......
