GeneralsJoes Reviews the G.I. Joe: Retaliation Data-Viper

The G.I. Joe: Retaliation reviews continue today with the Cobra Data-Viper!  Many of us weren’t quite sure what to make of this figure, even if it did look amazingly cool.  Well, now the figure is in my hands, and I’ve got the whole lowdown on my G.I. Joe: Retaliation Review Page.

A big thanks to Gyre-Viper for sending me an early sample of this figure!  Check out the Retaliation Review page above, or the direct link below.

Chuck Dixon speaks about his work on IDW’s G.I. Joe Comic Universe

When Axel Watteeuw dropped me a line to ask if he could somehow contribute to GeneralsJoes and YoJoe, that was a decision that wasn’t hard for me to make. He had done a fantastic job covering the G.I. Joe spectrum for a great series of articles at BrainFreeze and I knew he was a devout G.I. Joe fan and a great writer to boot. Please note: The website for Brainfreeze is in Dutch, but each individual G.I. Joe article has an English version as well, which can be easily accessed from within the article.

Imagine my surprise when I received the email from him last week revealing that both he and Moira Hunger from The Coil Club had teamed up to interview Chuck Dixon, and they would like to offer that interview up to GeneralsJoes and YoJoe. Yeah, I couldn’t reply to that e-mail fast enough.

With many of the questions supplied by G.I. Joe comic fanatic Mo Hunger, the interview runs the gamut between the current Special Missions title, all the way back to G.I. Joe: Reloaded and pretty much everywhere in between. It’s a great read and gives some fantastic insight into Dixon’s mindset with his run on various G.I. Joe titles. Check out the interview below.

Video from G.I. Joe: Retaliation Target Exclusive Blu-Ray

Anyone who has been paying attention (and even many folks who haven’t) are noticing that there are a ton of different variations of the G.I. Joe: Retaliation Blu-Ray or DVD release.  Between Best Buy, Walmart’s Steelbook, and all regular mass release items, it’s been tricky keeping it all straight.

The Buyer’s Guide that I wrote up has been helping (I hope), but still the Target exclusive Blu-Ray has been a bit foggy.  Well, Paramount has kindly provided video, which I have embedded below.

“Brothers Beyond Blood” focuses on the history of the Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow conflict and how that has translated into the film universe.  Check it out!
