Sgt. Slaughter pics aplenty as SDCC approaches

Some enterprising Joefans have jumped on a few eBay sales offering early releases of the Sgt. Slaughter SDCC exclusive, and some pics are starting to emerge.  Over on Hisstank.com, both Bionic Commando and Gyre-Viper have posted some images, mint on card and loose both.  Old friend of GeneralsJoes cmderinchief has also posted a couple of images on his Facebook page as well.  I’ve mirrored the images below.

I know some folks are a bit on the fence, but I dig this figure.  He looks cool, old school, but still accurate to Sarge’s physical…  prowess.  Sure, it would have been cool to have him stacked and jacked like he was in the cartoon, but there’s something humorous about this figure, and appropriately cheesy.  Of course the mid-torso joint does disrupt some of the flow, which is an issue.  But articulation must always come first, in my opinion.

Regardless, I’ll be looking forward to at least trying to get my hands on these figures when SDCC comes around.

Pursuit of Cobra Wave 1 Vehicles have arrived at SmallJoes.com!

Scattered reports have been sent in regarding the HISS and Wolfhound being available at retail…well, SmallJoes reports that they have the entire run of Wave 1 vehicles, including Alphas, Bravos, and the Mech Suits!  They also report that the figures may be arriving as quickly as week from now.  WOAH!

For the full details read the newsletter below!

EDIT – Apparently I read the email wrong… no Alphas are yet available, but the HISS, Wolfhound, and Mechs are all present and accounted for!

GI JOE COMIC BOOKS
——————

We continue to stock all of the latest IDW GI JOE comic books.  IDW
really has a full stable of GI JOE titles now so we usually have
something new for you every week.

GI JOE: Cobra is now an ongoing series.  This edgy and offbeat title
continues to feature the most innovative writing among the IDW GI JOE
books.  Issue #5 is recently released and features Serpentor like
you’ve never seen him!

GI JOE: Hearts & Minds is new mini-series that will, similar to
Origins, focus on the motivations and contrasts between classic
characters in the GI JOE universe.  The first issue spotlights Spirit
and Major Bludd.  Issue #2 in this series was just released but Diamond
omitted it from our weekly shipment – we’ll have it in next week.

Also available are the latest issues in the ongoing main and Origins
series.
