New single pack “General Hawk” pics on JoeBattleLines?

There’s a question mark on the end there because I have no idea if this is a single pack Hawk or what…just looking at the head sculpt, it’s definitely Quaid-like, and he’s considerably different than the version that comes with The Pit, but we still don’t really know where this figure is going to come from.

Check out the thread on JBL here, and I’ve got the images mirrored below as well.

G.I. Joe: The Rise of COBRA cast members awarded at ShoWest

For the past week we’ve been getting several reports of the sizzles and footage shown at ShoWest, and now, as the show wraps up, a couple of G.I. Joe’s stars received honors during the event.  Sienna Miller, starring as The Baroness, received the award for Supporting Actress of the Year, and had this to say:

“It was a strange experience,” she says of the commercial film, which includes myriad computer-generated effects she hasn’t yet seen. “I never had to duck in front of a green screen, pretending to dodge something that wasn’t there. But it is nice to get an award before the movie’s even out. I wonder if they’d do that with the Oscars. It takes the pressure off.”

Meanwhile, Dennis Quaid received his own award for Male Star of the Year, and will be appearing as General Hawk in the upcoming film.

Good to see G.I. Joe and its cast getting some mainstream publicity!  Click here to check out the article from USA Today about ShoWest and the awards.
