“Deep Terror” begins here! COBRA is digging a miles-deep shaft in the Patagonian wilderness and what they’re digging for could change the world forever and NOT in a good way. The Joes are looking for payback after recent events but will the cuts to their operating budget allow for a mission to the bottom of the world? Also: A new JOE arrives at Fort Baxter!

G.I. Joe Convention 2012 exclusive enemy and story line have been revealed!

And the crowd goes wild!

We’ve been getting flooded with some very cool Oktober Guard themed reveals over the past week or two, but many folks have been clamoring for more information about who the Oktober Guard will be facing off against.

Well, the G.I. Joe Collectors’ Club revealed that today with the Iron Grenadiers!  We get a great revelation of the Iron Grenadier trooper himself and also some details about the story line itself.  For folks who don’t recognize the figure itself, it was originally planned as part of 5 Pack of Iron Grenadier figures from the Rise of Cobra/Pursuit of Cobra line, but never got released.  The image for that original 5-Pack can be seen at this post on GeneralsJoes.  I’ve also mirrored that image below:

As for the story itself…  check out those details below:

“By popular demand, the 2012 convention set stories and enemy factions are revealed…

OKTOBER GUARD Box Set: The 1990s brought us many captivating Cold War stories but this one was kept Top Secret for over two decades! Recently declassified documents revealed the original Oktober Guard (G.I. Joe’s Russian and Warsaw Pact equivalent) team’s “Special Mission” in Siberia to rescue their captured General from the ruthless Iron Grenadiers in OPERATION: BEAR TRAP!”

Okay…now THAT is bad ass.  They give themselves an “out” for the dead Oktober Guard members by talking about declassified documents.  And they’re also talking about their “captured General”… hmmm…  could we see a modern version of General Mayhem from the 2005 set?  Or maybe…dare I hope…  Voltar?!  Of course I misread this, and it’s the Oktober Guard general who is being rescued.  Not sure what the angle is there…

Wow.  The possibilities are endless!  I cannot wait to hear and see more!  Check out the Iron Grenadier figure below, and keep your eyes on GIJoeCon.com for the latest intel!

The final G.I. Joe: Retaliation poster revealed – UPDATED w/ International!

Thanks to ComingSoon.net we have a look at the last G.I. Joe: Retaliation theatrical poster.  The poster takes some imagery from the previous character posters and combines it all into one pretty cool looking theatrical poster for the film.

Loving how this looks.  Another poster to add to my growing “want list”!  Check out the original post on ComingSoon.net, and also mirrored below.  Thanks to the Twitter account for the General Geekery Podcast for the heads up!

UPDATE – It looks like there are also posters for Brazil and the UK as well, which I’ve included in the gallery below.  The Brazil one is the split one that actually has Firefly in it.  The other one with Lee Byung-Hun subtly included is for the UK.

So, poor Flint is 0 for 3 on Retaliation posters.  What did he ever do to you, Paramount?!?  Thanks to toycollector962 for the updated info.
