It’s been nearly 30 years since he first appeared in the Marvel Comics, a young member of the Cobra youth. He evolved quite a bit since his first appearance, attempting to assassinate his own father, Cobra Commander, losing limbs in a rocket attack from Scrap Iron, and eventually falling under the tutelage of Storm Shadow.
Throughout the years, Billy has become one of the most critical pieces of the G.I. Joe comic book mythology, yet he has never had his own action figure.
The Collectors Club revealed their final FSS IV installment today, and it’s none other than Billy himself, for the first time ever. Representing his commando look from the Devils’ Due comics (YES) Billy looks pretty darn good. A very basic build with an exciting new head sculpt, but I think it works remarkably well. This will fill a big hole in comic fans’ collections.
Check out the mirrored image below, and don’t forget to hit up GIJoeClub.com by midnight on July 15th to sign up for FSS IV!
Now that Billy has been revealed, check out the full line up below!
At ComicCon today, the admin of HissTank attended a panel for Toy Soldiers: War Chest which showed off some gameplay for the upcoming toy based video game. He took a ton of images of game play, which I’ve mirrored a few of below. There are a ton more images over at HissTank.com so check them all out, and take a peek at a few of the great pictures below as well.
This looks like a pretty fun toy-based game with Rattlers, ground troops, and all sorts of stuff in between.
Check out the original article at HissTank and the images below.
An intriguing curve ball out of San Diego ComicCon today, as both IDW Publishing and Capcom themselves revealed that debuting in 2016 will be a six issue limited series pitting the characters from the Street Fighter universe against the characters from the G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero world.
As of now this confrontation is limited to the comic book pages, but when Capcom and Hasbro are working together, one must wonder how far this little partnership just might go.
As we near the end of the week, the G.I. Joe Collectors Club has revealed their second to last FSS IV figure, the Night Creeper Ice Ninja!
Using the same formula as the Concept Case Night Creeper with the ’98 three pack paint scheme, this is a really nice looking figure in stark white colors. Check out GIJoeClub.com for the latest FSS subscription info and the image is mirrored below.
Bring on Billy!
