Large images of G.I. Joe: Retaliation calendar – the Special Ops mystery revealed!

The 2013 G.I. Joe: Retaliation calendar went on sale last week, and GeneralsJoes has received it in the mail!  While all of the months images have been revealed in the past, I’ve got some much larger images presented in this post.  The character selection is odd to say the least with no Duke or Flint, but we did get Mouse, Clutch, and the mysterious “Special Ops”.

Many of us were wondering who this “Special Ops” character was, and I believe I’ve got the answer.  One look at this image and it certainly seems to be Ryan Hansen underneath the camouflage body armor.  Hansen was previously rumored to be playing Grunt in G.I. Joe: Retaliation, so either the Grunt character got re-named (which isn’t a surprise, I seem to remember there being some trademark issues with the generic “Grunt” code name) or they just decided to use this “Special Ops” moniker as a way around it.

Regardless, I’ve mirrored a number of the month images below, including the aforementioned Special Ops, Mouse (played by Joseph Mazzello) and Clutch (reportedly played by Jim Palmer, according to IMDB).

  1. Okay I’m the biggest Clutch fan around, but how does a guy who isn’t even credited in the movie make it into the calendar?

  2. I don’t know how this movie is going to turn out, but I am at least happy whenever I see a Cobra Commander that actually looks like Cobra Commander.

  3. Sounds like a probable solution tot he mystery, but still, I can’t help but think renaming the character to an existing Joe would have been the wiser choice. Special Ops seems like a horrible code name, it has no personality and is a term already used for their work. He could have been footloose. crankcase, steeler etc. pick one based on whatever he does in the movie.

  4. Grunt!!! Okay, the “special ops” title for Grun is magical.

    I’d love if he was a big part in the movie but even if he’s not I’m happy that Grunt and Clutch BOTH made this calendar.

  5. Agreed. There are hundreds of G.I. Joe names they could have used. Special Ops just sounds lame.

  6. Ryan Hansen for sure. I can’t mistake Dick Casablancas! He is one of those actors I was hoping to see again so I hope he gets some screen time.
