G.I. Joe: Battleground Peril in The Pit Event is on now!

The latest PVP event ended a few days ago, so now it’s time for the next big surge!  Cobra has discovered the location of The Pit, and it’s up to a few of the Original 13 Joes to stop them.

Flash, Grunt, and Zap team up to try and battle back Destro and Crimson Guard Commander.

As always the artwork on these new cards are fantastic, not just in execution, but in concept.  I’m in love with the Crimson Guard Commander, the fact that they used the GIJCC Iron Grenadier Destro, and that the Epic version of Flash is his Rise of Cobra version?  Solid GOLD.

Check out some screen shots below.

G.I. Joe stop motion video adventure continues on YouTube

This series has been a whole hell of a lot of fun.

While I will admit the stop motion was a bit rough at some earlier parts of VisorHUNgary’s work, he has absolutely hit his stride, and this latest stuff is really great.  He has posted the latest installment of his Rise of Cobra era stop motion animation on YouTube.  I am amazed at how well he does this.  Some great special effects, seamless animation.  Pure excellence.

His latest installment in “G.I. Joe: Cobra 3” is Chapter 3, but I’m embedding parts 1 – 3 just so you don’t miss anything.  Impressive.  Keep in mind, this is the third part of his Cobra adventure, so you should check out his channel to watch everything you might have missed.

Please check out his full YouTube Channel as well, he’s got a bunch more great stuff there.

Helix, Sgt. Flash wave showing up at Target!

Along with a barrage of Rise of COBRA figures today at Target Department Stores, word comes in from SpaceMonkeyMafia and PalatineScott via the GeneralsJoes Comments sections that the Agent Helix/Flash wave has been spotted in the wild!

This wave also comes with the Pit Commando, COBRA Eel, Crimson Neo-Viper, and single pack General Hawk.  To see more details about that wave, check the RoC SuperPage here.

Pictures and review for upcoming Rise of COBRA Flash!

Smokescreen over on one-18th.com has managed to get his hands on a pre-production version of the upcoming G.I. Joe: The Rise of COBRA Flash figure, and posted it up on his site here.

The pictures are nice and detailed with some cool shots of angles we haven’t seen before…I love the fact that the sculpting on his back looks like the old school backpack.  A very neat touch.  Flash is rumored to be a playable character in the upcoming G.I. Joe: The Rise of COBRA video game by Electronic Arts.

New images of upcoming items at HissTank.com

HissTank has gotten their hands on some pictures of items still due for release, including the Pit Commando, Helix, and Flash, and has posted those images online here, including a bunch of shots of the gear that may or may not come with these characters.  I’ve also mirrored the images below.

Thanks to Shin Densetsu of HissTank for pointing these out!

Updated images of upcoming items: Flash, Agent Helix, etc…

New images are now floating around regarding the story we reported on last night, but the images are larger and watermark free, so I’ve hosted them below.  The more I look at Helix, Flash, and Scarlett, the more warm and fuzzy I feel inside…such cool looking figures, and I especially love Helix and Flash, who are really taking things in new directions, which is critical to the future success of the line.  Gonna be an awesome year for Joe toy fans, I think.
