Like G.I. Joe: Retaliation toys as much as I do? Support Total Retaliation!

It seems as if love and praise for G.I. Joe: Retaliation toys is still somewhat hard to come by, even with the spectacular figures we’ve gotten in the last two waves of figures.  Greatness like Ultimate Duke, Cobra Commander, Data-Viper, and Night Viper can quickly wash away the taste of the original Roadblock or Duke.  No matter which Retaliation figures are your favorites, a potential upcoming book promises to feature them all.

Strong G.I. Joe supporters Brian Hickey and Patrick Lennon are working together on “Total Retaliation” a reference book dedicated to the G.I. Joe: Retaliation line!  Brian is a great graphic artist (just check out the GeneralsJoes logo in the above banner for proof of that) and they are really putting something special together by the looks of it.  This is also an opportunity to get file cards for all of your G.I. Joe: Retaliation characters.

Funded by FundIt, they are looking to get this book into collectors hands.  If you love Retaliation toys as much as I do, hit up and lay some cash down.  This looks like it could be great.

You saw the movie… you loved Cobra Commander… now wear his jacket!

We heard early rumor about the possibility of licensed apparel from G.I. Joe: Retaliation, but there hasn’t been nearly as much as one might think.  Mostly a result of the film delay, I’d imagine, but still the lack of great G.I. Joe: Retaliation clothing was a little bit distressing.

Entertainment Earth! to the rescue!  Well, sort of.

It’s not your typical licensed apparel, this is a full blown replica of the awesome trench coat that Cobra Commander wore in the motion picture.  At $829.00 this won’t be something you wear to your next power lunch, but it’s an awesome high end collectible for the discerning G.I. Joe: Retaliation fan.  Set to be released in January, 2014, you can hit up Entertainment Earth! to get your own.

GeneralsJoes wraps up Wave 3.5 Reviews with Flint and Cobra Combat Ninja

Reviewing a 12 figure wave can be intimidating, but I can now officially sign off on the Wave 3.5 reviews with the final two installments – Flint and Cobra Combat Ninja! Both figures use mostly existing tooling, but do so in very unique ways, giving us film accurate versions of some very important characters in the G.I. Joe mythology.
