Phil at JoeReloaded was kind enough to inform us that he has posted a 5-page preview for the upcoming fourth issue of G.I. Joe: Origins on his site. He was even kinder enough to allow us to host the images here as well, so check them out below!
TerrorDrome forum member CADPAT has posted a very nice, intensive review for the upcoming Reactive Armor Duke for the G.I. Joe: The Rise of COBRA toyline. This figure is becoming more and more cemented as a great one every time I see more images of it. The sleek design of the uniform only seems to add to the range of motion and poseability of the figure, which is a very strong selling point for me.
I’ve mirrored a few images below, but there are a lot more at the review, so check out this great review here!
Of note, he had this to say about the film, “I was on board as a consultant on the movie. I’m seeing the latest cut at the end of May, but I really liked the rough cut I saw in December. Stu Beattie wrote a killer screenplay. Marlon Wayans rocks. Ray Park owns Snake-Eyes. ‘Nuff said.”
Check out the full interview here.
As E3 soldiers on, we’ve got some more great video courtesy of GameTrailers.com. This time around we get a Developer’s Walkthrough of the upcoming G.I. Joe: The Rise of COBRA game, which gives us a great look at the gameplay itself as well as some insight from one of the designers.
For fans of weapon replicas, it looks like cool things could be coming your way as the release of The Rise of COBRA draws closer. The latest issue of Previews Magazine has listings and an image of these two swords being released by United Cutlery. The picture is hosted below, and thanks to Jeff Bohn for the information.
The pictures are nice and detailed with some cool shots of angles we haven’t seen before…I love the fact that the sculpting on his back looks like the old school backpack. A very neat touch. Flash is rumored to be a playable character in the upcoming G.I. Joe: The Rise of COBRA video game by Electronic Arts.
The fans have been waiting, and it seems as if the wait just might be over! GeneralsJoes sponsor SmallJoes.com appears to have the Wave 5 vehicles in stock (with the exception of the Stinger sold singly). Check out the links below!
Thanks to Fast Draw of HissTank.com for the intel.
Toyssir898 of HissTank.com has posted some great new images of previously unseen figures! According to the thread title, the pictures show Kamakura, various Neo-Vipers, and Night Adder. These names coincide with a past “Wal-Mart” listing as well, though it’s unclear exactly who is who. Check out the original thread here, or just hit up the mirrored images below.
If “Night Adder” is the dude with the dog, I am LOVING it. Very sinister looking figure with some absolutely bad ass web gear. It looks to be the gear that originally came with Resolute Roadblock, and it looks incredible here. Holy crap.
It’s been a while since I’ve gotten regular reviews posted, but that’s changing right now, with a HUGE thanks to the Big Bad Toy Store. BBTS has stepped up and agreed to directly sponsor new product reviews, and we’re starting now with Wave 6 of the Comic Packs from 2008. As we move on towards the movie line stuff, I figured it was a perfect time to look back and give some insight on the later releases of the Anniversary line that I hadn’t gotten a chance to cover yet.
So, check out these brand new reviews…sort of a “look back” so to speak:
- Issue #10 – Hardmaster & Snake Eyes
- Issue #11 – Beachhead & Dataframe
- Issue #12 – Wild Bill vs. Scrap Iron
If you guys appreciate the reviews, please take some time to hit a link over to Big Bad Toy Store, or find some other way to tell them you heard about ’em over here. It will only guarantee the reviews continue hard and heavy as the movie stuff hits!
Two great tastes that taste great together… Resolute and Sigma 6! The perfect marraige.
All credit goes to Jsalwen from JoeBattleLines, who stepped up and took to the sewing machine to blend the Sigma 6 universe and the Resolute universe in a way I’ve only dreamed of…and produced this amazing Sigma 6 Resolute Destro! Check out the thread here, and drool over the hand-sewn greatness below.
