New G.I. Joe: Renegades promo airs on Hubworld

Huge thanks to the MSGulfCoast GIJoe Collectors Club for snagging a nice copy of a recent G.I. Joe: Renegades promo that aired on a recent episode of Hubworld.  A lot of new footage is sprinkled throughout, with a heaping helping of cool music and action.

The roller coaster ride continues full steam ahead and Renegades finally arrives November 26th at 5:00pm!  Are you ready?

Check out the embedded video below!

New images posted for Pursuit of Cobra Wave 4

With Wave 3 on the horizon, images are starting to leak out for the upcoming fourth wave of G.I. Joe: The Pursuit of Cobra. Featuring Lowlight, Destro, Shadow Tracker, and Skydive (and notoriously devoid of Dukes, Snake Eyes, or Storm Shadows) this wave looks fantastic.  Granted, many folks already got their hands on the Skydive figure through backdoor means as Desert Battle Ripcord, but for those who haven’t, he is one of the best figures in the Pursuit of Cobra line.  Add to that this awesome Destro, the absolutely amazing Lowlight, and of course Shadow Tracker, and you have a wave that pretty much hits a home run with every single figure.

Great stuff.  Thanks to Corey Stinson of SmallJoes.com for the info!

Additional details for upcoming episodes of G.I. Joe: Renegades

A short while ago, it was revealed that Major Bludd was likely to be a part of the third episode of G.I. Joe: Renegades, with the episode entitled “The Package”.  Now we know who sends him after his target!

TVGuide.com has updated their line up for Friday, December 3rd, and included the following description:

“The Joes stop the Baroness’ mercenary from completing his planned assassination.”

Uh, spoiler warning next time?  From the looks of the listings on TV Guide, it would appear that the new episode of G.I. Joe: Renegades airs at 5:30pm, following a repeat of Episode Two.  Also on TVGuide.com, there is a slightly more detailed episode breakdown, also featuring some information on Episode Four, Return of the Arashikage, Part 1.  The following description is listed for that episode:

“The Joes train with Snake Eyes at his dojo and learn about his connection to Storm Shadow and their shady shared past.”

By the sounds of this, we should see Storm Shadow early on in the series, and start learning about his connection to Snake Eyes pretty quickly.  Looking forward to checking these out!
