G.I. Joe Kre-O Ninja Arashikage Dojo found at retail!

Okay, this is going to make my daughter happy.  Ever since I’ve gotten her fully invested in the G.I. Joe Kre-O craze she’s been asking when The Baroness is coming… well, the time is now near!

Over on the Leaky Suit Brigade, reports are that the Ninja Arashikage Dojo is in stock at his local Toys “R” Us.

This is great news as we’ll finally get our Destro and Baroness mini figures along with the Cobra HISS, Commando Snake Eyes, Hard Master and a couple of Gray Ninjas.  Check out the post right here, and both the boxed image and the press image below.

Retail price appears to be $75, which is steep, to be sure, but there’s a lot to love in that box!

Awesome tribute from G.I. Joe: Renegades episodes 4 & 5

Shame on me for not noticing this earlier, but a huge thanks to “Mac” a GeneralsJoes commenter who set me straight.  I know a lot of folks have been focusing on how cool it is that the Renegades production team are including Michael Bell and BJ Ward (who voiced Duke and Scarlett in the original Sunbow series) as parents to the Renegades Duke.

Well, that’s not the first Sunbow tribute we’ve seen in Renegades.  In fact, just in the past “The Return of the Arashikage” 2-parter, if you thought you recognized the Hard Master’s voice, that’s because you probably did.  He was played by Keone Young, who was none other than Storm Shadow himself in the original Sunbow series!

THAT is awesome.  Kudos to the folks behind G.I. Joe: Renegades for working these terrific tributes into the show.
