I figured it was pretty much a done deal when the silhouette was shown alongside Dial Tone a short while ago, but the GI Joe Collectors Club has now confirmed that we will indeed be getting a Sea Adventurer to finish off the awesome Adventure Team figures, and he will come with a repainted Mantis vehicle from the Valor Vs. Venom and Rise of Cobra toy line.
Unfortunately, Lody from HissTank.com does not mention the initial source of this information, but I assume it’s from the latest Collectors’ Club newsletter, which should be arriving in some folks’ mailboxes currently. Lody mentions the description saying that it will come with an Adventure Team Joe in blue, and a repaint of the Mantis submarine in white.
Toy Nutz, also on HissTank.com has also posted a customized version of the Mantis, with some approximation of what we might expect. Gotta say, I’m not real big on the Mantis, but my twisted sense of completism will force me to pick this thing up. The figure should be cool, and who knows, maybe I’ll warm up to the Mantis in person, but as it stands, not my first choice.
Check out the custom images below. This is not necessarily an indication of what the final product will look like!

They bring the fight to COBRA from ten thousand miles away and learn that, even in a virtual war, the heart can be a casualty. See StormShadow in action, and also, what will a captured COBRA Viper reveal to the Joes?

Recently revealed that IDW would be relaunching their mainline G.I. Joe title with a “Season 2” in early 2011, the fans have been speculating a bit on what that really means. Upcoming G.I. Joe artist Javier Saltares has posted a number of pages on his eBay store, which appear to reveal potential upcoming events in the G.I. Joe title. The listings all appear in the “Completed Items” of the store.
Highlights of these pages are appearances of Storm Shadow and Zartan…and one particular panel could reveal some heavy spoilers.
Check out the link, or the images (at your own risk if you want to avoid spoilers) themselves. Thanks to regular GeneralsJoes reader m6d for the intel!
I’ll admit, I wasn’t too keen on the Saltares news…his style always seemed way too stylized to work for a more real world military book. But I’ll be damned if these pages don’t look pretty nice. Much more hard-edged and realistic than I’ve seen from him in the past, and I’m really liking this new take on Zartan (if that is who it is).
