Standard Cardcacks

The 1988 "Standard" Cardbacks remaind mostly unchanged from the 1987 ones. They featured the same rectangle blast design as well as 1986 style Joe logo. 1988 also included the Super Trooper Promotion.

  • The blast effect on this cardback will need to be changed to match your art work. This is very easy to do with this stile of blast.
  • The blast effect is made up of three layers, one white, one yellow, and one red.
  • To make a Cobra cardback make sure the Cobra Logo layer is turned on and that THE REAL AMERICAN HERO and corrisponding TM layer are turned off in the PSD file.
  • To add or remove the Super Trooper Promotional sticker just turn the layer on or off in the PSD file.

Tiger Force

An example of a 1988 G.I.Joe Tiger Force cardback.

Tiger Force figures became avalible domesticly in 1988. There figures were repaints of pervious figures in new paint scheames.

  • Tiger Force features a special "Blast Effect". This effect almost looks like it was drawn with a colored pencil. To achive this in this template, you will need to build 3 layers with the shape of the blast you want. One in white, one in orange, and one in green, after you have these 3 layes merge them together. Then use the Sprayed Strokes filter in photoshop on the new layer to get the desired effect. To match the black background make sure that you background color in Photoshop is black before you use the filter.
