USA Today reveals information about 2013 G.I. Joe ComicCon Exclusives!

While other brands and toylines were revealing their coveted San Diego ComicCon exclusives, G.I. Joe fans were sitting on their hands saying “what about us”?!

Well, no longer!  USA Today writer and geek extraordinaire Brian Truitt reveals today via USA Today that the 2013 San Diego ComicCon exclusive G.I. Joe set will contain a Skystriker redeco into Autobot Jetfire, a VAMP redeco into Autobot Hound, as well as Snake Eyes, the Baroness (with Ravage) and Bludgeon!

At JoeCon 2013, John Warden mentioned that this year’s set would “fill in some gaps” of past ComicCon sets and indeed it has, finally giving  us some Autobots to battle against the Decepticons of the past two years.  The USA Today article also posted a great gallery of all of the necessary images as well.

Check out the great USA Today article for all of the juicy details, and take a peek at the mirrored images below.  That Jetfire looks GREAT.  Awesome retooled thrusters on the back…and that Ravage?  Woah.  Another fantastic entry into the G.I. Joe/Transformers ComicCon Lexicon!

EDIT – Thanks to the crack staff at YoJoe we now have much larger images of the exclusives!

Jim Sorenson updates his blog with some Field Manual out takes

Much to many folks’ surprise, Jim Sorenson’s G.I. Joe: Field Manual (Volume 2) hit Amazon this week and has shipped to many folks already.  Jim reached out to us, and we were able to get him on the What’s on Joe Mind podcast last night, so expect another great conversation with Mr. Sorenson to emerge on the Internet very soon!

During our conversation, Jim mentioned several outtakes that didn’t quite make the cut for the second volume, including twisted Mike Irizarry’s favorite…  “sick kids”.  Yes, for some reason Mike gets a level of joy out of sick kids.  True to his word, Jim went to his blog this morning and immediately posted some outtakes from volume two, including the now infamous “sick kids”.  He provides some excellent background to the outtake, and some great information about Volume 2 as well.

While you’re reading the blog, you should seriously consider hitting up Amazon and picking up the second volume of the G.I. Joe: Field Manual.  There’s tons of Season Two artwork as well as a ton of stuff from the DiC series.  That’s right, you get to marvel at the designs of awesome and obscure 90’s G.I. Joe characters without having to actually watch the cartoon.  It’s the best of all worlds!  Click the banner below to buy Volume Two, and make sure you continue hitting up Disciples of Boltax for information about this book and others.
