Diamond Release dates for Pursuit of Cobra Wave 2

Thanks to SNAKE EYES of HissTank.com for revealing the release dates for Pursuit of Cobra Wave 2 as revealed by Diamond Distribution.  But to me, the best news is this crazy high resolution images provided.  Nice!

Good grief I’m in love with the Pursuit of Cobra.  These are all exceedingly awesome looking figures.  Every freaking one of them.  I do hope Jungle-Viper looks okay without his monstrous backpack suit thing, because I’d love to use him as a more generic Cobra jungle operative…and yes, I understand Snake Eyes has “Tornado Action” and that figure looks pretty wonky, but I love it all, anyway.

Check out the mirrored images below.

The release information is as follows:

Pursuit Of Cobra WAVE 2: The evil schemes of Cobra are thwarted throughout the world by the noble soldiers of G.I. Joe, and their battles can be replayed time and again with the G.I. Joe action figures! Each figure stands 3 3/4″ tall and comes with accessories. Fans can choose from Zartan (Version 2)*, Recondo, Destro (Version 2), Jungle Viper, Snake Eyes (Version 2), Dusty, and many more. Blister card packaging.

The Guessing Game: 2011 Convention Site

Hey gang, Gary here for a very rare second article of the week.  I have been working on this for a while, so it was bound to be published sometime.

Let the speculation begin on where the 2011 convention will be.  Actually it has….

Frankly those new to the hobby were a little spoiled this go-around by having the club announce in Kansas City that we would be in Providence in 2010.  Con vets realize this is a rare but appreciated treat by the club to have all their eggs lined up enough to announce the next location less than a year out.  It seems like the BotCon’ers know where they are going to be next year, but what about Joe?  Back in 2003 and 2004, it was the norm for the club to announce, so rest assured, the club not announcing this time is not a sign of bad things, it is just a sign of the same ol’-same ol’ club that we know and love returning to normal.

The third figure in 2010’s Canadian JoeCon Exclusive set is revealed!

And his name is Hazard…  Amazing looking figure!  Those crazy Canucks are knocking the ball out of the park this year.  Can’t wait to see what else is in store…after all this guy is the “Hailstorm” pilot.  Is that perhaps a new aircraft?  Hmm… Check out the full details (including the filecard) right here.

Also wanted to post this note from the front page of the site:

“As you may, or may not know, my wife and I own two other businesses in our town. The lease is up on one, and we’re not renewing it. So, I’ve been completely and
totally pre-occupied with selling off it’s equipment, closing up shop, etc.which is why I haven’t had a chance to add any new content for the past few weeks. Come
August 1st, that will all be done, and I’ll get back to adding tons and tons of items and we’ll get JoeArmory back on track with weekly updates again.”

G.I. Joe: Resolute Reviews – Complete!

As promised, I have wrapped up the reviews for the G.I. Joe: Resolute boxed sets, which can be found linked on the Resolute Review page!  Today I added G.I. Joe’s first Army Ranger Stalker as well as Zartan, the Cobra Master of Disguise!

Along with these last two figures, I also posted full review recaps of the G.I. Joe Boxed Set and the Cobra Boxed Set.  Enjoy!  This has been a whirlwind week of getting these reviews done, but it was fun…
