As Hubworld went live, I started slightly revamping my own character bio pages, giving them the official Hub images and transferring the text descriptions to the SuperPage bio’s as well. I now have three separate sections over on the Renegades SuperPage featuring G.I. Joe, Cobra Industries, and Government Agents. Check them all out, or just check out the SuperPage itself right here!
The main Hubworld page still does not look fully live yet, however the G.I. Joe: Renegades page has been uploaded with some new content. Not a whole lot yet, but it looks like more is coming.
In glancing through the source code for the website, several lines are “commented out” and as such, are not uploaded yet, but definitely look to be coming. Among those commented items are an Episode Guide, Videos, and Games. So while there isn’t anything posted for these items yet, expect some stuff to be coming very soon.
Also, an assortment of other images were posted as well, and I’ve mirrored them below. Keep your eyes peeled to the HubWorld G.I. Joe: Renegades page for more information!
It seems only right as news about G.I. Joe: Renegades finally starts to ramp up that I wrap up the reviews for the first onslaught of G.I. Joe: The Pursuit of Cobra toys. Judging by all reports, the next run of PoC items should hit retail around the holiday season, so this may close that door, at least for a couple of months. Hopefully G.I. Joe: Renegades will help fill that void, at least from an animation perspective.
The last two items on my review list have been posted to the Pursuit of Cobra Review Page:
Both items have their pluses and minuses, and I lay them all out for you in the reviews. Enjoy!
Astute viewers would notice on the TVGuide.com listings that following G.I. Joe: Renegades apparent debut on October 10th, there’s a half hour special entitled “The Hub Sneak Peek”. Previously details were unknown, but now, thanks to Zap2It’s somewhat expanded coverage, we now know that the Hub “Sneak Peek” features a look into G.I. Joe: Renegades as well as Transformers: Prime.
So since there is a “Sneak Peek” scheduled, does that somehow mean thee 5:00pm listing for Renegades is inaccurate? Time will tell, I suppose.
With the SuperPages I’d done in the past, it was usually for a very finite event. A movie release, a DVD release, a specific toyline theme, etc.. well, all indications are that G.I. Joe: Renegades may hopefully morph into something more (if all goes well). It could be the television show, the toyline, dare we hope a video game, etc…
So to celebrate G.I. Joe’s return to network television, I’ve gone a little overboard with the latest SuperPage. It can be found right here.
Expect news reports, character bios, video clips, episode guides, synopsis, reviews, etc… the whole nine yards. If I enjoy G.I. Joe: Renegades half as much as I think I will, there will be a ton of content there. No fear, though, any specific updates will be announced on GeneralsJoes as well, all news reports will be mirrored here, and the main GeneralsJoes site will still get all of the attention it deserves. It’s just that as I was working through the layout and design ideas for a Renegades SuperPage, I realized there was a lot more than would fit in one simple page. However, I fully intend to not let it become unwieldy. The beauty of the SuperPages has been the quick and easy access to information, and I strongly desire to keep that intact.
Anyway. Check it out. Let me know your thoughts. Is it too much? Is there other stuff you’d like to see? It’s a continued work in progress. Hopefully as Hubworld.com undergoes its own transformation today, or shortly after, the Renegades SuperPage will continue its growth as well.
As we posted yesterday, online TV Listings are starting to reveal that G.I. Joe: Renegades will premier October 10th at 5:00pm Eastern Time. Unfortunately, TVGuide.com didn’t reveal much in the way of episode details, however Zap2It.com does. It ain’t much, but it’s something. According to their online listings, the following is a brief synopsis of Episode 1:
“A group of off-duty soldiers are recruited to escort an Army Intelligence Officer to investigate a Cobra Industries facility and get more than they bargained for.”
See, I told you it wasn’t much. I’m sure as the day goes on today, more will be revealed. Bring it on!
