Omega Force/Resolute figures? Yeah, I don’t think so.

I’m like any other Joe fan out there. I feed off the early leaked info, I love getting sneak peeks at upcoming product, and enjoy the speculation. But what I don’t like is when hypothesis are made about images based on no factual information that end up misleading the Joe collecting populace.

Welcome to the “new” GeneralsJoes!

Notice the “new” in quotes.  :shifty:

There are no content changes yet, but the site has undergone a major facelift with a more “blog” feel to it.  As everyone has probably noticed the site was somewhat stagnant with few changes, not much updates, and not much excitement.

Well, I figure in this format even if there aren’t any new reviews, new dio-story chapters or what have you, I should at least be able to come up with something to type about on a daily basis.  And if you want to read it, I guess all the better.

I’ve tried to set this up kind of as a “news hub” as well with RSS feeds for YoJoe, JBL, and HissTank for all of the latest Joe news updates.  I also streamlined the reviews interface for easier access.  I’m hoping over time to make GeneralsJoes a bit more relevant again, or at least a place people try to visit on a daily or weekly basis, depending on their mood.

If not, it will at least give me an avenue to bore everyone with my idle chit chat.  ;)

Anyway…  to be continued…
