Yeah, I know it’s over after Season One, but I’m still going to have fun while it lasts.
Will it change anything? No, most likely it will not. But fans of G.I. Joe: Renegades, let’s show The Hub and Hasbro what we think of the series… a page on Facebook has been created entitled “5,000 to Save G.I. Joe: Renegades”. Unfortunately, I have no confidence that it actually WILL “save” G.I. Joe: Renegades, but hey, can’t hurt, right?
While you’re at it, there’s a petition online as well. Go show your love!
If nothing else, let’s show our appreciation to the creators, designers, and developers who worked their tails off on the G.I. Joe: Renegades animated series and deserved better than what they got.
With Episode 15 on the docket tonight, TVGuide.com has just updated their episode listing for the April 22nd episode, “Castle Destro”. The episode description is below:
“In Scotland, the Joes become trapped in Destro’s castle while on a mission investigating a Cobra weapon.”
Judging by the title alone, sounds like arms dealer James McCullen “Destro” will be making his return, this time in a full on metallic mask, courtesy of Cobra Commander. Yes, I’m extremely bummed out about yesterday’s news on the future of G.I. Joe: Renegades, but I still intend to enjoy the hell out of the remaining episodes, and trust me, the coverage of this fantastic show will continue full steam ahead here and on the G.I. Joe: Renegades SuperSite as well.
So with the recent unfortunate news about G.I. Joe: Renegades, I thought I’d take a step back in time and explore some other recent unfortunate G.I. Joe events. Of course, you say the word “unfortunate” to most G.I. Joe fans these days, and the first thing they think of is The Rise of Cobra.
Keep in mind I didn’t buy these things when they were $15 a pop, but when they started hitting clearance, I decided to check them out. You can hit the Rise of Cobra reviews page, or just check out the links directly below:
