HasbroToyShop has Wave 5 up for pre-order NOW!

G.I. Joe: The Rise of COBRA Wave 5 has been listed on HasbroToyShop for a while, but only as “Coming Soon”…well, this morning, the pre-order gates have opened!  Each figure (including the spectacular City Strike Snake Eyes) are now up for pre-order.  Looks like figures will begin shipping October 19th, but judging by how much in demand Snake Eyes seems to be, you may want to jump on this boat early at a decent price.

Don’t forget to use gijoe10 for a 10% discount!

The really exciting thing about this to me, is that it sounds very much like the awesome Pursuit of COBRA stuff will start hitting late this year…can’t wait for that.  Go get ’em!

City Strike Snake Eyes reviewed!! Night Adder, Kamakura, etc… as well

I’ve been getting a smattering of new assortments at my house coming here and there and have posted some reviews for your consumption!  The highlight is by far Snake Eyes (City Strike) so he gets top billing, but that’s not all that I’ve got posted.  I also slightly revamped the Rise of COBRA Review Page because I wasn’t especially happy with the layout.  Check out the reviews below!

  1. Snake Eyes (City Strike)
  2. Kamakura
  3. Night Adder
  4. Red Fang Ninja

Is City Strike Snake Eyes as good as everyone thinks he is?  Yes, yes he is.
