Surprise Sideshow Collectibles Pre-Order: The COBRA Sniper!!

I don’t think anyone saw this coming…  Sideshow Collectibles sprang a nice surprise during their Halloween Spooktacular event…a brand new G.I. Joe themed pre-order!

The COBRA Sniper is an absolutely awesome looking dark hued COBRA Trooper with his trademark Drugonov sniper rifle and a brand new look.  Black uniform with very cool silver highlights and the Officer’s crest on his helmet makes for one cool ass looking new COBRA specialist.  To pre-order click the banner below!

Toys “R” Us Troop Builder 5-Packs available online at TRU.com!

Thanks to HissCommander from The Terror Drome for letting me know that ToysRUs.com currently has the two brand spankin’ new Troop Builder 5-Packs available for ordering through their website!

They retail for $19.99 each…I just placed my order, and it was $45.00 for the two of them including shipping.  Pretty good deal, all told, for ten figures.  There are no images in the listing, so just be aware that Trooper Builder 5-Pack 1 is the G.I. Joe one, and Troop Builder 5-Pack 2 is the Cobra one.  Go get ’em.

Target: Rescue Mission 4-Pack Review Posted!

Hot on the heels of the Toys “R” Us Attack on the Pit review comes the follow up review for the Target exclusive Rescue Mission 4-Pack.  While it doesn’t have as many figures, or quite as much value, I think the set itself has a whole lot more “cool factor” than the TRU one.

Check out the review right here!

See the Iron Klaw Trooper in action – buy G.I. Joe: Resolute at Amazon!

Folks were fairly bummed about the cancellation of the Resolute themed comic packs that were slated to hit earlier this year before things went up in smoke, but  various retailers like Amazon.com and Walmart.com have made the comics available through exclusive download programs.

Well, Amazon.com is at it again, with a great deal for G.I. Joe fans.  Pre-Order G.I. Joe: Resolute from Amazon.com and you get a download code for yet another digital copy of one of the cancelled comic pack Comics, this time featuring Iron Klaw Trooper vs. Crimson Trooper!  Not only that, but Resolute is cheap at Amazon as well, coming in at just $13.99.

Check out some images below of the DVD box art as well as two preview pages from the digital comic.
