Rise of COBRA Wave 1 hits early in Australia!

Terror Drome forum member evil129 has stumbled up the entirety of Wave 1 from the upcoming G.I. Joe: The Rise of COBRA toyline at a Myer store in Australia!  He reports on the find here, and images can be seen below.  It’s getting closer!

The Sigma 6 Celebration is coming…

I know there aren’t many Sigma 6 fans around, but I’m hoping those of you who don’t like that particular branch of the G.I. Joe mythos will still check out the “Celebration” running here on GeneralsJoes all next week!  There will be custom showcases, artwork, images, cartoon information, interviews, etc…  just lots of content based on everyone’s (not so) favorite eight inch toyline.

I totally understand why much of the fandom has issues with Sigma 6, but I loved it, and I wanted to take a week to show that even with the larger scale and the animated style, there was still stuff to love about it.

Starting Monday, June 8th, the Sigma 6 Celebration will run all week long (straight through til Sunday, June 13th).  Of course there will still be an influx of other news and information for whatever you’re into, but for Sigma 6 fans (or even folks who want to read some interesting stuff, no matter what it’s based on) Monday should hopefully start a fun walk down memory lane.  Hope you enjoy it!

Rise of COBRA pre-order exclusive info?

Vanishing Point from JoeBattleLines is reporting that both GameCrazy and GameStop will be having pre-order exclusives for G.I. Joe: The Rise of COBRA.  This is what he’s reporting:

  • GameCrazy.com will have a “classic Scarlett skin” including the kevlar body suit with leather gloves, boots and leotard, red marksman pad.
  • GameStop.com will have a “classic Duke skin” as well as an exclusive comic book.

While I haven’t been able to confirm anything with GameCrazy as of yet, a visit to GameStop.com reveals this information:

“YO JOE! Reserve G.I. JOE The Rise of Cobra and receive an exclusive 22-page limited edition collectible comic book with pull out poster and the unlock code for the classic uniform for Conrad “DUKE” Hauser. Available for online and in-store customers while supplies last.
