NJCC Exclusive HAZARD HISS Tank revealed at HissTank.com

The New Jersey Collectors Convention hit the scene fairly recently, but made a big splash last year with the awesome exclusive Jungle BAT themed HISS Tanks created by good friend of GeneralsJoes Kevin Watts.

The 2012 edition of the NJCC is coming in May, and we now have our first look at the 2012 NJCC Exclusive, the HAZARD HISS Tank!

This is an early sample and will likely be getting tweaked along the way, with some additional details and an exclusive sticker sheet from Cobra Stickers.  Kevin Watts once again is the brainchild behind this one, and it shows.  A great looking piece that will supplement your Hazard-Vipers well.  Heck, it even comes with a great armored canopy by GeneralsJoes sponsor Yetibrew Design!

I’ve mirrored one image below, but be sure to hit up HissTank for the full details.

Official image of Snake Eyes from G.I. Joe: Retaliation hits the web!

Big thanks to Total Film, who are the first to broadcast this, though I’m honestly not sure if the image is theirs exclusively or not.  It features Snake Eyes from G.I. Joe: Retaliation in a threatening pose with pistol raised and ready to pop some caps!

Hit it up at Total Film, or just check out the mirrored image below.

The image features the always awesome Ray Park as Snake Eyes from G.I. Joe: Retaliation, which will hit theaters June 29, 2012.

What’s on Joe Mind Episode 45 featuring GI Joe: Initiate and Buzz Dixon is online!

Yes, it went up a little late, but those cross-Atlantic plane trips will do that to ya!  Recently returned from a whirlwind voyage to Southampton for Roll Out Roll Call 3, Gary has posted Episode 45 of What’s on Joe Mind for your Thursday morning listening enjoyment!  In this episode we interview Frederic Doss, the only man known to have been killed by both Cobra and the Decepticons on the big screen (yes, he was victimized in both G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, and the first Michael Bay Transformers film), and a key mastermind behind the development of upcoming fanfilm, G.I. Joe: Initiate.

We’re also joined by a very special guest, Will Bell, recently returned from Afghanistan, who spends some time with us, just shooting the breeze about G.I. Joe.  As if that wasn’t enough, an informative interview with Buzz Dixon rounds out this action packed episode.

Show Notes

WOW! Episode 45 is here! Better late than never, right? So yeah, its a week late, but we gave ya over 3 hours of RORC3 coverage, so that made up for something didn’t it? Apologies in advance. With travel and all, it made it difficult getting this out in a timely manner. We’ll make it up to you, trust us! In this episode we are joined by TWO very special guests. First, just joining us as a guest host and hanging out is US Marine, fan of the show and a REAL American Hero, Will Bell (no relation to Justin). Siting in the interview chair this week is Frederic Doss to talk to us about his upcoming fanfilm GI Joe: Initiate and his roles in BOTH the live action Joe and Transformer films. From the mailbag, Chuck is asked about the obscure South African wrestler Col. DeBeers joining the ranks of Cobra, Gary is asked why he hates Transformers so much, and was there ever a time anyone on the cast has ever lost interest in Joe and *gasp* STOPPED collecting. In the news, Hasbro responds to the latest issues with Fun Pub and the guys celebrate the conclusion of a long running show joke. Also covered in the news is the lack of new Joe broadcasting on the hub and a mystery Joe wave was found in the WalMart computers that has the look of being cancelled. After the break you will hear a pre-recorded interview with Sunbow writer Buzz Dixon as we talk to him about the toon and find out some stuff about the most dangerous man in the world AND what would have happened to Cobra Commander in season 3 if the series didn’t get lost to DIC. We thank Will for joining us and wish him continued success in his rehab and thank him for her service to our country. If you agree, kindly drop a comment in on this episode to let Will know how much you appreciate him as well!!

Teaser video for G.I. Joe: Initiate fanfilm sets the tone

I’ve been showcasing many of the images and details for the upcoming fanfilm, G.I. Joe: Initiate, and we also interviewed a key contributor, Fred Doss on the most recent episode of What’s on Joe Mind.  But all along the way, folks have been clamoring for some video.  Well, it’s not much, but the folks behind the film have posted a small teaser, just to set the tone.  With their Kickstarter project recently closed, and full funding achieved, they can now start full blown production on the project, and I’m sure a more elaborate teaser or trailer will be coming along.  Be sure you’ve “Liked” them on Facebook to keep up to date as well.

Until then, check out the short (but cool) teaser below, and even though their Kickstarter program has ended, you can still hit up GIJoeInitiate.com to donate via PayPal and help this ambitious project succeed.  I’m looking forward to the end result!
