It’s official, the first figures revealed from the 2014 G.I. Joe Convention are the Cobra Lab Rats! Using some terrific looking modern parts (is that Ultimate Cobra Commander under there?) they are based on Cobra tech troopers from the animated series.
Check out the first reveal right here.
Well, it’s my favorite time of the year… Convention figure sample time!
While we’re all still on pins and needles waiting for the Convention registration to go live, the G.I. Joe Collectors Club has let everyone know that the first Convention figure sample should be appearing today! This is really exciting news, and as someone who has a real affinity for the work that the Club does, I absolutely love seeing what new figures they’re coming out with.

Throughout the release process, Hot Toys typically releases a series of images taken by bloggers who have had direct access to their action figure releases, and this holds true with their upcoming G.I. Joe: Retaliation Roadblock figure release. The Hot Toys Facebook page has unloaded with well over seventy images of G.I. Joe: Retaliation Roadblock and some of these pictures are blowing me away.
This figure, without a doubt, looks to be the flagship of the Hot Toys G.I. Joe: Retaliation line, with layered body armor, different shirts, a fully functional Battle Kata weapons system, as well as the M249 SAW and deadly movie accurate uniform. The face sculpt does look just a bit hit or miss in my opinion, but soup to nuts this representation of Roadblock is spectacular.
Check out the Hot Toys Facebook Page for the full gallery, and a bunch of the images are mirrored below.
