GIJoe.com totally revamped for the Rise of COBRA

Along with the Join the Team promotion, Hasbro has also totally revamped the GIJoe.com website with new wallpapers, some awesome new animated intro’s and a bunch of great cosmetic changes.  You can view upcoming Rise of COBRA toys, buy The Pit or the Night Raven, or just have fun cycling through the different options at the opening screen.  It’s very cool.

Below I’ve mirrored images from the G.I. Joe Intel section as well as the wallpapers, just to show how freaking cool the artwork is.  Anyone who has been talking bad about the quality of the art in recent releases needs to take a long, hard look at this stuff.  Gorgeous.

GIJoe.Com hosts contest for personalized custom figure

In celebration of the upcoming G.I. Joe: The Rise of COBRA motion picture, GIJoe.com has launched a contest to “Join the Team”!  This contest is for children aged 6 – 12 (or in Germany aged 7 – 12) and gives the child the opportunity to join the G.I. Joe or COBRA team and create a unique character for themselves.  Entries will be judged, and the winners will receive custom figures of themselves as a 3 3/4″ G.I. Joe figure!  Click here to go directly to the contest page.

While us adult collectors are out of luck, pass the word onto your kids, your relatives, or anyone else and join the fun!
