In a shocking development, Electronic Arts, distributor of the recent G.I. Joe: The Rise of COBRA, had their headquarters vandalized by the evil terrorist organization, Cobra! Check out the vile and disturbing images below…
Yeesh…not only did the Rise of COBRA movie hit, but I’ve been spending some serious time with the video game to get a review prepped, plus work has been nuts and my wife is about ready to burst with our second child, so we’ve been doing nursery prep and all that fun stuff.
So if you’ve noticed that news stories and reviews have slowed, please don’t worry about it! Starting Monday, as long as I’m not in the hospital with the family, things will start picking back up again and going full steam. I’ve got reviews in the hopper for the X-Box 360 game, Mark Bellomo’s excellent book that I’ve taken way too long to get a review done on, as well as many Rise of Cobra figures that I don’t have up yet.
So, while I know the Twitter feed and RSS Feed haven’t been cooking along quite as often as usual, rest assured, there’s plenty more to come, I haven’t lost my juice, just catching my breath a bit this week. It’s been a whirlwind for Joe fans, but a great ride already! Go see the movie like eight times so we can get some decent sequels out of it.
The Orange County Register has posted in it’s “Mom Blog” that they are holding a contest with giveaways including over $200.00 in G.I. Joe merchandise as well as free copies of the recently released G.I. Joe: The Rise of COBRA video game for X-Box 360! One catch… the contest appears to be primarily geared towards moms who are fans, or moms with kids who are fans. Are there any mothers out there? Hit up the Mom’s Blog and leave a comment, you might get some great Joe shwag!
So it’s times like this that I really wish I had some sort of forums attached to the site, but instead, I’ll just piggy back on my “Sister Site”, JoeBattleLines. The guys and girls over on JBL have been having some great discussions about the Rise of COBRA leading up to the release of the film, and I fully expect some nice, respectful, educated debate now that the film has hit and everyone has their own .02 they want to share. Check out the following links to discuss this with fellow fans!

- G.I. Joe: The Rise of COBRA – Official Discussion Thread
- G.I. Joe: The Rise of COBRA – Rate the Film!
Over the next few days I’ll be spending some serious time over there talking about the movie and enjoying the conversation!
