Yes, Virginia, Sideshow Hawk has his brown coat and goggles

Sideshow Collectibles has been a tear over the past month, flooding G.I. Joe buyers’ wallets with cool figure after cool figure, and General Hawk looks to keep up that pace.

When the preview was shown last week, fans were a bit worried that maybe the final figure wouldn’t have his brown jacket or helmet.  Well, worry no more!  Sideshow Collectibles has released their latest production blog, which features a gallery and pre-order information.  Click here for the details.

The Exclusive version features an additional head sculpt with cap, and both versions will retail for $134.99, and pre-order will be launched with the Sideshow Newsletter on March 17th.  Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

GeneralsJoes Reviews Hall of Heroes B.A.T. and Storm Shadow

The next two Hall of Heroes figures are up to “B.A.T.” for review today!

Initially marketed as coming with the battle damaged head, the original carded release of the Cobra B.A.T. left collectors disappointed, even as impressive a figure as it was.  Well, the Hall of Heroes version goes all out, and even though the Defense of Cobra Island B.A.T. gave us the same package, it’s nice to get it in single pack form.

Storm Shadow?  Well, that’s another story…

Check out the reviews on the 25th Anniversary Review page or directly at the links below:

Joe and Cobra will have to work together to stop the unimaginable from happening… but with an army of robotic B.A.T.S. corrupted with the Infestation virus it may already be too late! Not everyone makes it out alive as GI Joe: Infestation comes to its startling conclusion.
