As March, 2013 nears we can expect G.I. Joe: Retaliation figures to start hitting harder and heavier. Wave 2 has just started blasting across the country, and I’ve begun the review process. First up in the second wave is Storm Shadow.
As folks know by now, my coverage of Toy Fair pretty much includes zipping down to New York City, covering the Hasbro event, then zipping back. I did spent a couple of extra fun days in the big city this year, but I still only covered the Hasbro offerings and then came back North.
Thankfully guys like Matt from the Awesome Toy Blog are there for the whole show digging up great G.I. Joe related nuggets! Matt grabbed some great pictures from the Loyal Subjects booth at Toy Fair, showing off some of their awesome classic G.I. Joe mini figures. Check it out at Awesome Toy Blog, and I’ve mirrored just a couple of the images below.
Just a few seconds of new footage where Roadblock informs a hapless recruit that G.I. Joe’s should be “gentlemen”, with a little encouragement from Lady Jaye. Various other action scenes take place showing just how “gentle” G.I. Joe can be.
