The time has come! Last year we brought you Welcome to Wolf Squad, a novella based on the 2015 series of G.I. Joe and COBRA action figures… now we bring you Nerves of Stone, the follow-up Novella to our Wolf Squad adventure from last year.
Familiar characters make their returns and some new characters get introduced…each and every member of the 2016 G.I. Joe and COBRA roster appears!
When a new G.I. Joe recruit goes missing while investing a top secret COBRA research lab in Alaska, G.I. Joe’s special operations Wolf Squad team gets deployed to see what’s up. They get far more than they bargained for and when G.I. Joe reinforcements arrive, a long kept secret gets revealed…
Now, for a limited time, get an exclusive sneak preview of this upcoming novella! Sign up for the World of Wolf’s Head Publishing and you’ll get immediate access to the Prologue and first chapter of this novella, due for release in early 2017. This will be available NOWHERE else.
As an added bonus you can check out the first three chapters of my original novel The Fog of Dreams and get access to a Top Secret Research Paper outlining the Operation: Harvest story. If you’re a fan of G.I. Joe, I really think you’ll enjoy this story as well. Lots of similarities as one might expect.
Just sign up for the World of Wolf’s Head Publishing, I promise we won’t spam you or throttle your mailbox, but we will have plenty of exclusive offers and fun stuff coming down the pipe. Check it out!
With some newly found spare time at GeneralsJoes we’ve put together some video reviews for figures from FSS 4.0! Tiger Force Outback and Sneak Peek video reviews have been posted to the GeneralsJoes YouTube Channel and are ready for viewing.
The fine folks over at Marauder “Gun Runners” have sent an email to let backers now that all Valkyrie figures from the Kickstarter campaign have been shipped!
Not only that, but they’re coming with a special bonus as well… with extra torsos included for all. Check out the full email below… I can’t wait to get my hands on these figures, they look awesome!
Dear “814 Valtaskers!”
All orders have shipped! We shipped international orders first and then domestic orders. Our intention was for “most” of the orders to arrive “around” the same time. Everyone should have received an email with tracking (that is if you provided the correct email address and we correctly entered the info). If you didn’t get tracking, check your spam folder. Still no tracking, contact us at: email@example.com
If you encounter any issues after you receive your Kickstarter reward package, PLEASE be so kind as to contact us FIRST at: firstname.lastname@example.org BEFORE posting on facebook or the message boards. We don’t read all the posts on social media or on the various sites, so the only way we’ll know there is any type of error and be able to correct that issue is if you do us the courtesy of letting us know!
EVERY Kickstarter reward package received at least ONE bonus Valkyries female T-shirt torso. To place the t-shirt torso on the figure, just “pop” off the fatigue torso and “pop” on the t-shirt torso. No need to go “Hulk” on the body parts, they should easily separate and stay securely attached. In addition, EVERYONE that ordered a Recon Ops female Valkyries figures ALSO received a bonus fatigue torso (in addition to the t-shirt torso). Also, everyone that ordered the black Night-Ops figure received a set of armored forearms and a set of cloth forearms for each figure. To change the forearms, Just warm up the upper arms of the figure in hot water to swap the forearms. Side note, we were able to add Marauder “Gun-Runners” bonus pens to only some orders, since we received the pens very late in the packing/shipping process.
Here are some quick solutions to possible questions after you get your items:
-When attaching the clear visors to the flight helmets, do NOT insert the entire visor into the slit on the front of the helmet. Push the tiny black knob on the visor through the helmet slit from INSIDE the helmet. After insertion, adjust the position of the visor so it can easily be moved up & down.
-The removable Hood works BEST with BALACLAVA HEADS. If you put the hood on other heads, it can be difficult to remove the head from the hood . Again, BEST to use the hood with the Balaclava heads.
-Peg holes on the foot bottom of the tan Desert Ops Valkyries are TOO big for our IDS stands (only the tan female figure has the peg issue, all other versions are fine). “Corrected” feet are on the way to us, but we did not want to hold up the orders for the feet. So, if the peg hole is an issue, we can add replacement feet to a future order.
-The peg for the rifle sheath backpack might require a tiny piece of tape around the tip to fit snug in the back hole of some of the figures. We have encountered this on some of the figures and this non-permanent solution corrects any problems.
We required almost everything we received to fill the Kickstarter reservations, so the MTF Valkyries items and the new MTF accessories won’t be live on the website until we receive the rest of the initial shipment. No definite date as of yet, but we hope soon. Rest assured, we have a small reserve amount of the MTF Valkyries items on hand to take care of any errors or mix-ups related to the Kickstarter reward packages.
Again, thank you for your support and we REALLY hope you like the items.
Big thanks to skinny over on Twitter who has forwarded some images of upcoming Prime 1 G.I. Joe statues for Storm Shadow and Snake Eyes which were apparently revealed at Tokyo ComicCon. By all accounts, Prime 1 offerings are not inexpensive, but the detailing and sculpt work on these two statues is pretty incredible.
Check out the mirrored images below as well as embedded YouTube video. The images mostly come from the Prime 1 Instagram account. You can see two different versions of each character below. Pretty awesome looking stuff.
We are officially neck deep inside IDW Publishing’s Revolution roller coaster, and just today, the G.I. Joe: Revolution One Shot hits comic shops! It’s a Revolution story focused on the G.I. Joe side of the house, continuing IDW’s existing universe, but weaving it into this over-arcing Revolution story.
So how did it work? Click the Read More link for the full review!
I know I’ve been lagging a little bit behind on my reviews for the most recent G.I. Joe product, but now, with huuuuuuuge thanks to Chris from The Full Force podcast, we have a video review for the Duke vs. Tombstone 2 Pack! This video was a huge undertaking as Chris combed through years of history to look at nearly every single version of Duke that exists.
Anyway, hit up the GeneralsJoes YouTube Page for the latest review, and I promise written reviews (and more video ones, too!) are on the way.
Holy cow, this is what happens when you don’t post a new episode for a while… the What’s on Joe Mind podcast has posted a new episode of their G.I. Joe podcast, and it’s a big ‘un!
FIVE FREAKING HOURS of content crammed into this tiny audio file, encompassing hours of recording, editing, and production work. Big props to all the work done behind the scenes, and I hope everyone enjoys this latest mammoth episode.
ZOMG! It’s a REAL episode!! Yes, the gang brings you almost FIVE hours of Joe Related Talk…and other subjects…and pointless tangents. Justin was having “family time” so joining us for substitution host duty is Chris McLeod of The Full Force. Since this is our first show since JoeCon (yes, we know it has been that long, but we all have real lives we must live folks), we spend a SIGNIFICANT amount of time in the news doing a day-by-day review of all that went down in Loveland. We also catch up on other topics in the news…all which is old news now, but you can hear what we have to say instead of reading it on a forum or in social media. We also talk to IDW GI Joe artist extraordinaire, Tom Feister as we check in to what projects he has cooking for the rest of the year. All that plus the Joes of 2006 and Inappropriate Cosplay Emails to Joe Colton. We know you will love this new segment! We’ll fill you in with our lives in the real world on our next episode, but for now, enjoy this MEGA show…this should last you a couple of days on your commutes…unless you have a long commute and in that case we hope it makes your trip go by that much more rapidly. Thanks for thinking of us! We appreciate your listener-ship!!
