GUY CASSADAY.   On this episode of Joe Declassified: SPEC-OPS, Guy Cassaday takes us through the pre-production origins, processes, and anecdotes behind his designs, including the fearless Conquest, the mammoth Mobile Command Center, the sneaky Coastal Defender, the epic Rolling Thunder, the intimidating General, and the unproduced, deadly Cobra Sub.  Yes.  You read that correctly.  COBRA.  SUB. But why stop there??  Guy also talks to us a bit about the Defiant and the Persuader. Also in the show notes we’ve got images of the unproduced ANVIL vehicle.  Yeah, we’ve never seen it before, either.  All this and more on this first of a TWO PART interview, with one of the most revered and celebrated GI JOE vehicle designers of all time. Welcome to the Hidden World of GI JOE.
