Renegades Duke turn-around posted on DeviantArt

Nope, it ain’t much, but over on DeviantArt.com, G.I. Joe: Renegades artist jones-z-kitty has posted a “turn around” for the G.I. Joe: Renegades version of Duke.  This is essentially an idea of what the head will look like from all angles.  It’s in black and white, but for those of us who are Renegades enthusiasts, it is another cool little tidbit as we press onward to late November.

Check out the mirrored image below, and a big thanks to eagle-eyed folks at The Terror Drome for digging the info up!

No Hub? No problem – G.I. Joe: Renegades will also be online

As today progressed, and the official Twitter page for The Hub announced that several of their programs would be available online at HubWorld.com, I began wondering if original fare like G.I. Joe: Renegades would get the same treatment.

Well, apparently not content to just wonder, the guys at Toy News International actually went to Hasbro and asked ’em.  The answer is a resounding “YES”.  The actual text of the response is below:

“The Hub will begin streaming episodes of G.I. Joe: Renegades on www.hubworld.com following the show’s debut this fall. Check www.hubworld.com for more details in the coming weeks.”

Excellent.  A big thanks to the Toy News International guys for going straight to the source.

Yes, another G.I. Joe: Renegades air date addendum… and a Mea Culpa

Okay, I’m having a rough couple of days.   Not only did I totally miss news about the 12″ Cobra Viper from my Sideshow Collectibles update yesterday, but today I totally misread a press release for  Transformers: Prime and insinuated that a later release date for Prime would likely invalidate a G.I. Joe: Renegades rumor that we’ve heard.

Well, I read the press release with listed episodes more closely and found that… whaddya know?  It looks like this might be confirmation for the G.I. Joe: Renegades air date, not a conflict of it.  While the press release proudly advertises the 5-day Transformers: Prime mini-series event, reading more closely indicates that the debut for Transformers: Prime will indeed be 4:00 – 4:30 on November 26th, as indicated from previous stories.

The exact schedule can be seen below:

“Transformers: Prime” – Part 1 of “Darkness Rising” (premiere: Friday, November 26, 4 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. Encore presentations: 6 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. and 12 a.m. – 12:30 a.m.; Monday, November 29, 6:30 p.m. – 7 p.m.; Tuesday, November 30, 6 p.m. – 6:30 p.m.; Saturday, December 4, 1:30 p.m. – 2 p.m.)

So, yes…I jumped the gun a bit, and in fact, Transformers: Prime will make it’s Hub debut on Friday, November 26th from 4:00pm – 4:30pm.  So that means chances are pretty good that the previously leaked schedule for G.I. Joe: Renegades will debut the same day.

Now if The Hub would just announce something officially so we could all stop hypothesizing…  ;)

Another shift in the G.I. Joe: Renegades air date?

While we STILL have no official confirmed word about G.I. Joe: Renegades, The Hub has announced the debut event for Transformers: Prime via a Press Release.  According to official word from The Hub, Transformers: Prime will debut with a 5-part mini-series 11/29/2010 – 12/03/2010.

What does this mean for G.I. Joe: Renegades?  Unfortunately, nobody really knows at this point…but considering Transformers: Prime was initially listed alongside Renegades on November 26th, and that launch date is apparently incorrect, we can only assume that perhaps G.I. Joe: Renegades might not be airing that date either.

I really wish we could get some final word from The Hub, as frustration is starting to set in.  I know we cannot blame The Hub for any of this, as it is all our assumption based on un-official television listings, but it would be nice to get an announcement for Renegades sometime soon.

It is cool to finally get some intel on Transformers: Prime, and I can only assume G.I. Joe: Renegades is close behind.  Check out the full press release after the jump.

More G.I. Joe questions answered by Sideshow Collectibles

Big thanks to GeneralsJoes contributor Mysterious Stranger for giving me a virtual “slap upside the head” for some missed details on the Sideshow Collectibles Q & A this morning.  While I focused on the two questions that appeared on Tuesday’s slate, I missed the question that had been posed on Monday, and now, we also have a new question for today as well.  Heck, they even posted a question from way back in August that I think I might have missed.  Many fans (myself included) will be extremely pleased with what Sideshow revealed in Monday’s Q & A:

I would like to know if some of these characters are in your plans for the 12-inch G.I. Joe line: Strato Viper, 1986 Viper, Cross Country, SciFi, Xamot & Tomax. Please say yes about Xamot & Tomax at least!

The 1986 Viper is getting the 12-inch treatment for a fact, and the twins are good possibilities (but a little further down the road).”

Yes, Sideshow has revealed that they will be doing a 12″ Cobra Viper.  ROCK.  As for their other details…

Pump out more 1/6 scale Joes!

What a coincidence, we just had a meeting to look at the next 5 Joes, all mocked up and studly. Some greatness is coming, let me tell ya! Jungles, deserts, and marine environments should be well protected. ;)”

Is a Blowtorch or Barbecue a character that Sideshow will consider realistic enough for 1/6th scale G.I. Joe? -AND- I really wanted to say that you guys are doing an awesome job on GI JOE. I just got the Cobra Throne, and it is easily the most startling item in my collection. And I’m looking forward to more of them. I have to ask, with the real world twist you apply to each character, will Joes that have bright colors like Blowtorch (a personal favorite of mine) be on your list? I’m curious how you’d adjust the colors.

Blowtorch made it to our planning, but has yet to find a ‘locked’ position in our development track. Our Creative Director, Tom Gilliland, has a serious soft spot for Blowtorch, thanks to his time working for Toys ‘R Us back in 1984/5/6. There was a kid that came every day to the store asking for Blowtorch, and one day, Tom was finally able to connect that kid with his long-sought-after figure, and it left a strong impression on Tom.”

So there you have it.  We should be all covered.  Chill the hell out, Stranger.
