THE HUB TO PREMIERE NEW ORIGINAL SERIES ‘G.I. JOE RENEGADES’ DURING THANKSGIVING HOLIDAY WEEKEND

Premiere Event Includes: Back-to-Back Original Episodes; Behind-the-Scenes Special “Hub Exclusive: ‘G.I. Joe Renegades’”

11.24.2010– LOS ANGELES, Ca. – Coming this Thanksgiving holiday weekend to The Hub, a cable network for kids and their families, is a special two-part premiere of the new half-hour, action-adventure animated series “G.I. Joe Renegades,” Friday, November 26. The Hub is a joint venture of Discovery Communications and Hasbro, Inc., and is available to 60 million U.S. cable and satellite households.

The new animated series, a re-imagining of the popular, original series “G.I. Joe A Real American Hero,” takes viewers back to the origins of the G.I. Joe storyline, in which the world’s most elite renegade force of highly trained specialists are forced to band together to prevent their nemesis, the evil forces of Cobra Industries, from achieving global domination.

“G.I. Joe Renegades” is produced for The Hub by Hasbro Studios. The series is executive produced by Jeff Kline, whose television credits include “Transformers: Prime” and “Jackie Chan Adventures.”

Starring in the series premiere are Lee Majors (“The Six Million Dollar Man”) as “General Abernathy,” and Charlie Adler, the original Cobra Commander from the animated series “G.I. Joe: Resolute,” who reprises his role in the new series. “G.I. Joe Renegades” also includes an all-star lineup of story editors, including Marty Isenberg (“Ben 10,” “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” and “Batman the Animated Series”) and Henry Gilroy (“Star Wars: Clone Wars,” “The Tick” and “Batman the Animated Series.”)

A full schedule of the “G.I. Joe Renegades” and related programming follows. (All times ET).

GeneralsJoes reviews the Sideshow Collectibles 12″ Duke

Yeah, I’m well aware that this figure has been out for a while, and we’ve gotten Flint and Beachhead since he was released…I’m a bit behind the times.  But when I had an opportunity to pick up a Sideshow Duke, I decided to jump on it, if only for iconic reasons.  At this point I’ve accepted the fact that I’m never going to own every Sideshow figure, it’s just not in the budget.  So, for that reason, I figure I have to be choosy and grab the impactful characters.  Duke certainly fits that bill.

I’ve reviewed a few Sideshow figures already, Snake Eyes and the Cobra Trooper.  I had somewhat mixed results from the two of them, and honestly, Duke totally blows them out of the water.  Great articulation, very nice design, awesome accessories…this one is the total package.

New TV Spot for Hubworld Exclusive Sneak Peek

I’ll admit, there isn’t a whole lot of new footage here, but when checking out The Hub this afternoon, there was an advertisement for the upcoming Hubworld “Sneak Peek” that airs this Friday starting at 3:30pm.  This special show features a behind the scenes look at the creation of G.I. Joe: Renegades and Transformers Prime.

Again, not a whole lot of new footage, but some interesting pencil drawings and other snippets that folks looking forward to Renegades might enjoy.  This has been added to the GeneralsJoes G.I. Joe Animation YouTube Channel.

Check out the embedded video below.

Along with this, I also added the IGN clip “Security Detail” to the channel as well.

ToyFare Interview with Hasbro Studios’ Stephen Davis online now!

A little while ago, I made a recommendation that folks pic up issue #159 of the legendary action figure collectible magazine, ToyFare.  Within the pages of that issue was a pretty neat interview with Stephen Davis, the president of Hasbro Studios.  Hasbro Studios is essentially working hand-in-hand with The Hub to bring Transformers and G.I. Joe to your TV screen in the 21st Century.

Well, now that the air date of Transformers: Prime and G.I. Joe: Renegades is coming up fast, Wizard Editorial blog site, Pie Monkey has reposted the interview in it’s entirety!  Check it out right here.

A big thanks to the Twitter feed of ToyFare editor Justin Aclin for passing along the intel.
