Great pictures of the 12″ Crimson Guard Paratrooper from JoeCon 2009

Underbrush over at JoeBattleLines has posted some very nice pictures of the 12″ Crimson Guard that was released at JoeCon 2009 last weekend in Kansas City.  You can read the thread here, or check out the images mirrored below.

A quartet of TV Spots added to the Rise of COBRA SuperPage

Even though most Joe fans these days have seen the Rise of Cobra film, I still love watching these TV Spots, so when SNAKE EYES posted links to some more on HissTank.com, I decided to add them to the SuperPage.

These’ll have to hold me over until DVD time.  I’ve seen the film twice already, but I want to watch it again…forcing myself to wait for Blu-Ray, though, the theaters around here are garbage.

Very cool videos from JoeCon by JoeCustoms.com

We can funnel all the information you want from JoeCon, but there are always a ton of interesting details at the roundtables that don’t seem to filter out to the sites.  Luckily, the great guys at JoeCustoms let the video cameras roll and have posted part 1 of a video series from the Hasbro Panel at JoeCon 2009!  Check it out below.

Reviews posted for Steel Crusher and Cobra Gunship

I’ve been so focused on getting figure reviews done, that I hadn’t really had a chance to roll out any vehicle reviews, but that changes today.  Just added the Steel Crusher and Gunship to the Rise of COBRA Review page.

Enjoy!

New images of upcoming Toys “R” Us Exclusive 5-Packs

Images have emerged for the upcoming Toys “R” Us 5-Pack Troop Builders, and the Terror Drome has hosted them right here.  Of course, I’ve also mirrored them below.  It’s looking like the COBRA set is purely a “reissue” set with the Troopers not looking redecoed much at all (besides the Duke/Airborne covert ops figure mixed in there, of course).  However, the Joe set is really interesting, sporting a nice new type of camouflage scheme and some great parts re-use.  Four new characters to boot.  Check out the images below.
