IDW and Hasbro SDCC Panel is now happening…

Yeah, I’m having a hard time finding coverage anywhere for it, but I’m working on it…  it started at 12:00pm Pacific (3:00pm Eastern) and should be rolling for another 15 or 20 minutes.  I’m hoping to dig up some details and will certainly pass them along as I hear them.

Cobra Industries Invades the San Diego Comic-Con!

Now that we know just a little bit more about G.I. Joe: Renegades, we know that in this new series, Cobra starts off as a legitimate (or supposedly legitimate) pharmaceutical corporation called Cobra Industries.

Well, on the West Coast, apparently recruiting has started!

HissTank reports that Cobra Industries propaganda has started appearing throughout Comic-con and has some great images hosted on their site, which I have mirrored below.  I love this sort of stuff…here’s hoping we get more of it leading up to the animated series this fall.

GeneralsJoes Reviews the Wal-Mart Cobra Surveillance Port

Continuing on the fury of the GeneralsJoes Review-A-Rama, today I finish off reviewing last year’s Wal-Mart Exclusive Battle Stations sets…  saving perhaps one of the best for last, the Cobra Surveillance Port w/ MARS Officer and Tele-Viper.  You can also hit up the Rise of Cobra Review Page to catch up on other reviews you may have missed along the way.

Video Reviews posted for Dusty, Alley-Viper, and Resolute Packs

Frequent GeneralsJoes contributor cmderinchief has himself a brand-spanking new EVO Smartphone and has been abusing it by filming himself.  Luckily for us, he only films himself doing toy reviews…  he posted an SDCC Sgt. Slaughter review a while ago, and now follows up with not one, not two, but FOUR new video reviews for various upcoming or recently released items, including the Pursuit of Cobra Wave 2 Dusty, Wave 1 Alley-Viper, and the two Resolute 7-Packs.

Check out the embedded YouTube goodness after the jump.
