Hasbro G.I. Joe Q & A 2011 begins NOW.

Up to this point we hadn’t heard when the schedule for the 2011 G.I. Joe Q & A’s would begin (or even if there was going to be one).  Well, now we know…and we all know how to finish that sentence.

Word from Hasbro PR is that the first round of the 2011 Q & A sessions are due into Hasbro on March 21st, which is a week from today.  Answers should be coming back by April 15th.  By the looks of things, there will be a total of 6 rounds.

So get your thinking caps on…what questions do YOU want to ask?

G.I. Joe: Renegades Episode 14 Promo #3 on YouTube!

Yes, there is another!  A third promo has appeared on The Hub for the upcoming 14th episode of G.I. Joe: Renegades featuring the long-awaited return of Zartan.  This time around, we get some shots of Zartan in his orange jumpsuit, running around and disguising himself as people.  Sweet!

Check out the third promo below.  I’ve also mirrored the previous two, so they’re all in one spot.

I am officially STOKED for Friday.

GeneralsJoes begins reviewing the 25th Anniversary Hall of Heroes

I don’t think I’ve made it much of a secret that some of the ideas behind the 25th Anniversary line were a bit lost on me.  I can understand and appreciate the history of the Real American Hero, but I’ve never  been one to be taken by nostalgia, and often would prefer the Joe line evolve and move on rather than continually look back.

However, I know a lot of fans out there loved the Anniversary stuff, and I feel for those folks who thought it died before its time.  Now that I have an extensive Anniversary collection, I join many fellow fans in wanting to see certain holes filled in the roster.

But I thought the Hall of Heroes was a pretty big missed opportunity in 2009.   Lots of minor repaints, some strange marketing decisions…  the concept was far more noble than the final result.  That being said, in the past 2 years I have received more demand for the Hall of Heroes reviews than I have for pretty much anything else.  So here they are.  All week long I’ll be reviewing two figures from the 10 figure assortment, and I start off today with:

Also, keep checking the 25th Anniversary Review Page as I prepare to begin listing the other 8 figures as well.  Hopefully this will make some folks happy, and also help kick off the GeneralsJoes “Review Recap” period where I’m going to start grabbing some stuff from past years and trying to fill in some of the gaps in my review archive.  I won’t get ’em all, but hopefully some old favorites will finally earn their place in these pages.
