Still haven’t played G.I. Joe: Battleground? Give it a try this month and get SCRAP IRON!

G.I. Joe: Battleground has been around for a few months now, and the game developers continue to raise the bar, with the artwork on these characters.  This month is no different.

Each month the game offers new and different cards and incentives to “Invite” people to join.  This month that incentive is SCRAP IRON!  A long time fan favorite character, Scrap Iron appears in the artwork as depicted in his Direct to Consumer version as well as the 25th Anniversary Extreme Conditions Arctic set.  The choices of these obscure homages is just one of the reasons why this game and the artwork within are being embraced by G.I. Joe fans everywhere.

If you haven’t tried it yet, head to and download it.  When you first play, you will begin a “Boot Camp” training session.  After that training session is over, it will ask for an “Invite Code”.  If you enter my Invite Code 7jhfsx you will get a free Scrap Iron card (as will I).  It’s a great incentive and the artwork here is incredible.

This only works for new players.  Thanks and enjoy the game!

Two new Kre-O set listings appear in Toys “R” Us Computers

I was just digging through my review of the second wave of Kre-O mini figures when this news popped in my feed appropriately. According to Master Chief over two new listings have appeared in Toys “R” Us computers for upcoming G.I. Joe Kre-O sets!

The listings are as follows:

GI JOE Kreo Wolverine Tank $29.99
GI JOE Kreo Outpost Defender $12.99

Master Chief has been a long time G.I. Joe fan and has been a very reliable source of information in the past, so I have no reason to doubt his information. This is great news for those of us Kre-O fanatics who have been anticipating some new trickle of information.

According to Master Chief, these sets may even hit in time for the Holiday season!

Sound off below! Are you excited? What do you think these sets will contain?

Personally, I’m not entirely sure if the “Wolverine” will truly be a classic “Wolverine”. The $29.99 price point is a bit higher than something of that size might indicate. I think we might get a more full-fledged battle tank, but I could be wrong.

Regardless, I’m excited to see and hear more! Thanks to Master Chief for the intel.
