G.I. Joe: Battleground “Arise Maximus Arise Part II” is live!

I’ve been woefully behind the eight ball in getting these Battleground updates posted, but I happened to see it come through tonight, and saw that the focus for this latest event is Valor Vs. Venom! That’s something I can definitely get behind. Check out the details of the latest event below.

Deep in the Terror Drome labs, Dr. Mindbender holds General Clayton “Hawk” Abernathy prisoner—a subject of Mindbender’s torturous, venom-fuelled evilution program, and the basis for his ultimate creation…

Desperate to save his General, Beachhead leads a contingent of G.I. JOE Troopers against the Enemy’s HQ, but Cobra’s army of V-troop Swamp Rats, not to mention Zandar and Scrap-Iron, stand in their way. Will the Joes reach Mindbender’s labs in time, or will the mad doctor’s vision of the supreme V-troop overlord be realized? You don’t want to miss the reward cards in this exciting Takedown event, Arise, Maximus, Arise (Part 2), on now!


Three pages from upcoming Transformers vs. G.I. Joe #1 by IDW

Thanks to Entertainment News International for cluing us in to the fact that Apple’s iBook Store has posted a few pages from the upcoming first issue of Transformers vs. G.I. Joe by John Barber and Tom Scioli. I know it’s a style that isn’t for everyone, but I didn’t mind the #0 issue, and actually these three pages look pretty fun. I’m feeling some serious early Mike Vosberg vibes and that’s a fun thing.

Check out the three pages below.

Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. “Ghosts of the Battlefield” unlocked – Accessory sets coming up!

It’s a truly exciting time for folks following the Vitruvian HACKS Kickstarter campaign. The “Days Remaining” have officially converted to “Hours Remaining” (a relief, I’m sure for folks who are tired of seeing it everywhere) and the next stretch goals on the docket are accessory packs!

Unlocked late last night was the “Ghosts of the Battlefield” Two Pack, an exciting set of Glow in the Dark warriors who are arch enemies, trapped in an endless “undead” world. Now, for folks who have gone “All In” we have some great accessory sets for all the ‘Blanks’ you’ve now amassed.

The great thing is, too, once the first Accessory Set is unlocked, it’s only a $5K gap between them so expect stretch goals to fall quickly as we ramp up towards STONE FIST!! Who knows, we may see other exciting stretch goals revealed within the last few days as well.

Check out the Kickstarter campaign right here and we are in the HOME STRETCH!
