Okay, consider this rumor mill material at the moment, but it’s a rumor I’m leaning towards believing.
I think over the past few weeks we’ve seen plenty of Retaliation images leaked on StarkIndustries.ru. While nobody seems to know exactly where this site originated, they certainly seem to have the connections to get these images before the mainstream sites.
Well, again, thanks to toycollector962 who passed on the word… the Twitter account for StarkIndustries.ru reports that a new G.I. Joe: Retaliation trailer is hitting April 25th. They Tweeted the following information about it:
“Watched new G.I. JOE trailer. More dialogue, less Seven Nation Army. One epic scene.”
“Studio requested to remove GI JOE posters which were leaked earlier today by Paramount Mexico on local sites. Trailer is coming on April 25”
Should we take that as official gospel? No. But judging by their track record, and the fact that a new trailer was listed to the Alberta film ratings website, I’d say the information is probably reliable. More information as it develops!
Consider this just a bit of rumor and a bit of insight, but I would just expect to see some nice G.I. Joe: Retaliation updates in the next week. Call it a hypothesis, or maybe it’s even wishful thinking, but judging by the barrage of posters, some of them international, and combine that with the fact that Dwayne Johnson and Jon Chu are apparently travelling to Las Vegas to do some G.I. Joe: Retaliation related press, and I think there’s a good chance we could see some new stuff this week.
Also, BCYOJOE from HissTank reported that a new trailer has been submitted to the Alberta film ratings website, which means something is destined for release very soon. Tough to tell exactly what to expect, but the stars are aligning, I think, so Joe fans should be keeping their eyes open.
Well look at that! Over on HissTank.com Snakefox is reporting that he was able to score a case of the much sought after “Dollar Store” G.I. Joe figures at a local retailer in the Philippines.
This is great news for Joe fans, as many of us have been drooling over these figures since they were first revealed just a week ago. Snakefox reports that they are “3-4 dollars cheaper” than regular retail G.I. Joe figures. Check out the discovery thread right here and look at the mirrored images below.
Big thanks goes out to GeneralsJoes Twitter pal toycollector962 who uncovered a great G.I. Joe: Retaliation international poster featuring Storm Shadow front and center with Joe Colton and Roadblock flanking him. Judging by the file name it appears to be a Korean poster.
