Giant - King Joe by DanielMead Giant - King Joe by DanielMead
King Joe

This one is interesting. There seems to be many conflicting versions of this bad boy.

To add to Enshohma's info, there was also the "Scarlet King Joe" in the Ultra Galaxy Series. It basically is a red version of the classic robot, with a lance like weapon for one of his arms. Does not do anything in the series, just a cheap cash in to make another toy for kids to buy *raises hand* :)

But on to the piece, man you did a wonderful job. You really captured a powerful look for the machine. And I love the effect you did on his chest piece :)

Wow...I wasn't expecting this level of beautiful execution when you took my Giants suggestions, but man, you delivered in spades!

King Joe here looks like he's actually constructed from real metal, as opposed to most of his live action suits, which were obviously light rubber materials (though admittedly, the more recent suits are better constructed / looking).

To answer your inquiry, yes, there have been more than one version of King Joe, as they are the war robots of the treacherous, often unseen Pedan Aliens, ranging from unique variants like the original 1967 model, to mass produced soldiers like the King Joe Blacks from "Ultra Galaxy" (2008).
