G.I. Joe: The Movie – 10 Memorable Moments

Folks who have been checking the site have seen me do “memorable moments” posts for all of the mini-series so far, coinciding with the release of those DVD Battle Packs.  Well, we all know the “Best Of” Battle Pack was originally meant to be a Movie-themed one, and in fact, all of the figures in the pack are definitely inspired by the Movie opening.  Because of this, I decided to do a “memorable moments” article for G.I. Joe: The Movie.

Resolute Images re-posted

Some folks have let me know that the Photobucket account hosting the Resolute images in a previous post has exceeded it’s bandwidth.

Well, not to be dissuaded, I’ve hosted those images locally to help avoid that problem, for folks who have not yet seen them.  Keep in mind these pics are courtosy of art2614 on the HissTank Forums.

Come and get ’em!

So as folks are probably reading around the ‘net, assortments of Wave 13 are shipping as we speak.  Woo hoo! 

I don’t think I’ve been this excited to get new toys in a long, looong time.  But not only are pre-orders being prepped and shipped, but this wave is in stock and ready to buy at a couple of places, too.  Check it:



For those folks without pre-orders or those folks who want to buy the figures singly, go and get ’em!

Mike’s World: Pre-Holiday News Dump

Howdy, all.  It’s been a while since I’ve plastered my thoughts all over Justin’s good virtual home, so I figured I’d stop in and dirty up the place before the Holidays took over everyone’s hearts and minds.

Resolute WINS.

That’s it.  End of story.  I’ve found the Joe line I’ve been waiting for since the 90’s, only I never knew it until now.

Ever since I saw that three minute “sizzle” at the Joe Convention last year, I’ve been infatuated with the concept of Resolute and the execution of the series, but have always been curious as to whether or not the toys could live up to the hype.  Well, HissTank forum member “art2614″ has put aside all of my fears.  Basque in the wonder.

It Begins!

So last week we got a little peek at the Resolute “Pilot Destro” that’s coming out in upcoming Comic Packs.  Well, today, once again, HissTank has another new Resolute figure.  Granted it’s a tiny glimpse, but for the first time we see Resolute COBRA Commander here.

Of course I have my thoughts on this.

First look at Resolute figures – fer reals, this time

The venerable HissTank.com has once again come up with pics of soon-to-be-released toys.  I’m not normally one to horde news over on this site, but when it comes to Resolute, I’m so unashamedly in love with it already I gotta revel in every little tidbit!

Anyway, the aforementioned HissTank has posted pics of two new Comic Packs, Shockblast vs. Destro and Storm Shadow vs. Tunnel Rat.  While plenty of folks will go “ga ga” over Shockblast and Tunnel Rat (with decent reason, they both look pretty awesome), I’m all about that Destro!  Quite possibly the first real look at a Resolute figure, he’s got some great sculpting on those baggy pants and a very unique look.  It’s gotten me even more excited to see these figures hit!

Rumor has it that Big Bad Toy Store is getting their shipment in possibly as early as this week.  I’ll believe it when I see it, but I’m REALLY looking forward to seeing it!
