Along with the character bio’s, Discovery PR has also posted a breakdown of the G.I. Joe: Renegades series, detailing some of the voice cast and production team. Much of it we’ve heard before, some of it is very new to us.

As I suspected in an earlier post, the Hub media event today did yield some very juicy tidbits from the G.I. Joe: Renegades universe…namely bio’s of pretty much the entirety of the main cast of characters from both sides! Not only do we get some more details on the characters we know, but we find out a bit about some folks we hadn’t heard of before. Very cool.
Click the “Read the Rest of this Entry” link below for the full details, and expect this all to be transcribed to the Renegades SuperPage swiftly.
Even now, while there’s a Corporate Lunch going on with several Hasbro and Hub execs, we have some information from a Webcast that was broadcast revealing information about The Hub and the focus of their programming. Big thanks to the guys over at TFW2005 who have gathered a bunch of this information together for our consumption. Their focus is obviously on the Transformers end of it, but I’m currently listening to the webcast now to try and get information gathered for G.I. Joe: Renegades, and will present whatever I find right here.
At this point, the following information has been gleaned from TFW2005:
- G.I. Joe: Renegades will air in an afternoon “block” with Transformers: Prime at 3:00pm.
- The Hub website is in production, and will apparently have a full “launch” September 27th with a wealth of added content
- G.I. Joe: Renegades and Transformers: Prime are the main focus of Hub production and programming
Apparently there were also video clips shown, sound clips, and other details that are unavailable through the webcast, but it’s hypothosized that it’s mostly the same as what we’ve seen.
If there are more details buried in the webcast, I’ll try and pull ’em out for everyone.
Wow. Anyone complaining about a lack of Joe product earlier in the year certainly should be happy now. I no longer got reviews posted for Pursuit of Cobra Wave 1, then Wave 2 hit retail, then the Wave 2 Bravo vehicles hit online stores, and now, I’ve received confirmation from BBTS that my pre-order for the second wave of Alpha vehicles has arrived in their warehouse! In fact, they’ve listed the set of two vehicles as in stock now.
This includes the awesome looking Ice Cutter w/ Snow Serpent Officer as well as the AWE Striker with Night Fox. Really looking forward to getting these in hand. I couldn’t care less about the Striker itself, but Night Fox looks pretty awesome. And the Ice Cutter really looks like a winner all around.
Keep your eyes open!
No guarantees, but the Twitter Page for the Hub has posted the following information:
“In anticipation of 10.10.10, we’re live-tweeting our media lunch today feat. Margaret Loesch, President & CEO of The Hub. Stay tuned!”
I’ll be keeping a close eye on their Twitter feed to see if anything of consequence is talked about. 10-10 is coming up quick, let’s hope things get moving.
A big thanks goes out to Apocalypse Comics for continuing to bring us news regarding New York ComicCon. As mentioned in an earlier post, Apocalypse Comics will be bringing variant covers to Transformers #12 as well as G.I. Joe #23 to the NYCC, and along with those variant covers, some pretty cool guests as well, including G.I. Joe super voice actor Michael Bell!

Wait, what? As I prepared for this review, I tried to spend some time getting some insight from various forums and sites, just trying to figure out what people thought of this vehicle and how much they were anticipating it. I was shocked with what I read.
There are apparently a lot of Joe fans out there who don’t like the looks of the new VAMP? Really? Never would have figured. I thought it looked like one of the cooler Joe vehicles to come out within the past several years. Sure, it lacks the nostalgic qualities of the Anniversary retools, but as far as brand, spanking new vehicles go, I was immediately impressed before and after opening the box.
Ah, well… different strokes for different folks. Anyway, whether you like the VAMP or not, check out my review on the Pursuit of Cobra Review Page or right here. You can probably guess what I think of it.
Well, I didn’t have a chance to get the 5-page preview posted yesterday, but I did have a few minutes to type up a review for the latest issue of the main G.I. Joe title, issue #22. To avoid spoilers, I’ve posted the full text of the review after the jump.
Just as a reminder that Hasbro’s latest round of the G.I. Joe Q & A is coming right up. Questions are due to be submitted next Monday, September 13th!
If you have any burning questions, post ’em in the comments below. Can’t promise I’ll use them, but it certainly doesn’t hurt.
