Don’t throw away that G.I. Joe: Retaliation movie cash!

Folks who have purchased the G.I. Joe: Renegades Season 1, Volume 1 DVD very likely scoffed at the “movie cash” offer on the cellophane just like I did.  Well scoff no more!  Shogi actually emailed the movie cash folks in regards to the G.I. Joe: Retaliation offer, and received the following reply:

“Thought you guys might like to know this. I emailed emoviecash about the $5 Retaliation code that’s on the Renegades DVD:

Thank you for your DVD purchase!

The theatrical release date of G.I. JOE RETALIATION is now scheduled for March 29, 2013.

to redeem your e-Movie Cash Code.

YOUR CODE WILL STILL BE VALID.

So there ya go!  They will continue to honor the movie cash offer, it will just be delayed along with the movie.  Thanks to Shogi for the information!

A very quick inside look at upcoming Sideshow Major Bludd and Destro?

We have to consider this more rumor material, just because there has been no official word from Sideshow Collectibles, only a snippet of art from the introduction to their new Production Peek video.

The production peek itself focuses on the Lord of the Rings product line, but if you squint and look closely at the rotating artwork used for the intro, a nice picture of some potential design ideas for Major Bludd and Destro are present there.  Destro looks like he has a pretty new look, complete with his red collar, but with a much better textured shirt.  Major Bludd looks like he comes with removable missiles for his backpack as well.

Keep in mind these may just be dead concepts, but it’s still a very cool look into the production process.  The video is embedded below, and I’ve also screen grabbed a few images for a better look.  Big thanks to the eagle eyes of the Flag Points Podcast Twitter account for noticing this!

Marauder “Gun Runners” releases long awaited Series Six!

Man, the first half of the day seemed relatively uneventful, then all hell broke loose!  One of the highlights of today’s news for sure was the announcement that Marauder “Gun Runners” Series 6 weapons assortment has been released!

Official press images for SDCC Exclusive Shockwave HISS and Jinx

Hasbro PR has made available the press images for upcoming San Diego ComicCon Exclusive “Shockwave” HISS Tank w/ Destro and Constructicon B.A.T. as well as Kim “Jinx” Arashikage in both her regular red uniform and in the variant white uniform.  Along with the press images, we get our first official looks at the box art for Shockwave and the card art for both Jinx figures.

Of note, according to GeneralsJoes Twitter friend Twitziller, the Jinx card art may represent the first time a 25th homage figure was released with “digital” explosion background.  Someone feel free to correct us if we’re wrong, but I can’t seem to remember another figure using that.

Check out the official images below, and if you want to see what I thought of the upcoming SDCC Jinx figures check out the main release review right here and the white uniform variant right here.

Shout Factory salvages 2012 – G.I. Joe: Renegades gets full season Blu-Ray!

What’s the saying?  It’s always darkest before the dawn?  Well, just as all hope was lost with the G.I. Joe: Retaliation push back, Shout! Factory has single-handedly redeemed 2012 for G.I. Joe media, as an Amazon.com pre-order reveals a G.I. Joe: Renegades Complete Season One on BLU-RAY!

For many of us, this will be the first time ever seeing G.I. Joe: Renegades in high definition, and to say I’m excited for this release would be a massive understatement.

For folks who are into the regular DVD format, Amazon has also revealed a Season 1, Volume 2 set as well, to finish off the collection that was released just this week.  Both sets are slated for release September 25, 2012.

I was made aware of this by no less than 15 or 20 of my awesome GeneralsJoes faithful today, but first mention came from Twitziller, so full credit to him for making my day!

Thank you very much, Shout! for giving Joe fans something to look forward to this year!
