G.I. Joe: Renegades Episode 11 added to episode guide

Another late Friday night…but hey, I’m married with a couple of kids and I’m a toy nerd, it’s not like I’ve got a hot date or anything.

G.I. Joe: Renegades picks up steam once again tonight, thrusting us right back into the thick of the Joe and Cobra conflict!  And we also just might get a glimpse of an important player on the Cobra side… or two.

Check out the Episode Guide, or hit up the Episode 11 entry itself right here.
