Toys “R” Us has released a new sales flyer for this weekend, featuring some “Doorbuster” deals, and among one of those mentioned deals, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra figures are Buy 1 get 2 Free! Depending on the stock at your local Toys “R” Us, this could be a great time to boost your Rise of Cobra armies, or just clear out some peg space for the eventual arrival of more Pursuit of Cobra stuff.
’tis the time for Toys for Toys as well! I’ve mirrored an image of the ad below, it can be found on ToysRUs.com. Big thanks to Compulsive Collector for the information!
I hesitate to call this an “interview” because when I have a chance to talk with Mark Bellomo about G.I. Joe and toys, it feels a lot less formal than that. When Mark let me know about Totally Tubular ’80s Toys, I knew it was a good chance to talk to him a little bit about the book, and about the world of G.I. Joe in 2010, and as expected, his answers really deliver the goods. He’s got terrific insight, some invaluable information, and it’s just a great read.
Mark Bellomo has been able to take his love of toys and really build a secondary career out of it, and I think he’s got some terrific “behind the scenes” insight that toy fans would love to know.

We saw them featured in various pictures with the upcoming 12″ Dusty and the Cobra Desert Weapons Cache, and now, in the latest collectors’ newsletter the Cobra Desert Sniper has finally been revealed in a preview right here!
The figure will get a full blown reveal in the Sideshow Production Blog on November 9th, but until then, this sneak preview will have to do:
A big thanks to Mysterious Stranger and 788 for the intel!
