Down to 26 days left! Reason #26 why G.I. Joe: Retaliation will be great

Hard to believe we’re almost halfway through this countdown already.  Fifteen days are now behind us, and only twenty-five left to go.  Twitziller brings us the next big reason why G.I. Joe: Retaliation will be great, and it’s a doozy!

#26:

Without a doubt one of the most defining moments of the G.I. Joe: Retaliation trailer was the scene of the White House being draped by Cobra flags.  That was definitely the “ohh!  ahh!” moment not just from the fanboys, but from the press at large, too.  No matter who I spoke with, this is the scene that was indelible in their minds.  The idea of Cobra’s master plan actually coming to fruition is a fascinating one, and something that Larry Hama often took seriously in the comics.  Cobra’s massive political schemes often kept them one step ahead of the G.I. Joe team, and it’s very interesting to see that methodology keep pace here.

The dichotomy between the first two films is truly fascinating.  In The Rise of Cobra, Cobra was just a small piece of the huge MARS puzzle, slowly building and waiting to break free of those chains.  In Retaliation, the Joe team is decimated, and also, like Cobra, must work to rebuild themselves to compete with a much more advanced, much larger enemy force.  These two films would be the perfect build up towards an action-packed third film where both forces are finally fully equipped and fully established.  Fingers crossed that the box office is good enough this time around to make that happen.

New G.I. Joe Kre-O SuperPage has been launched!

I’ve been considering this page for a while, and in fact had most of it drawn up shortly after Toy Fair, but with the recent collector craze over these little guys, I figured it was time to get this thing rolled out here.

On the SuperPage you’ll find a wave-by-wave break down of the Kre-O figures with all of the press images, and the known codes for the blind bags.  You can find it in the SuperPages menu up above, and also directly at the link below:

On this page you’ll also find a ton of images from Toy Fair 2013 featuring most of the Wave 1 Kre-O items, and even the build sets from Wave 2!  Enjoy!
