Hot on the heels of the Social Clash 2-Pack, here is a review for the Arctic Ambush featuring Snow Job and the new Cobra Arctic B.A.T.! As one of the only really new concepts in this year’s 50th Anniversary selection (even though it uses old parts) fans seemed interested in the figure. I will admit, I was a bit surprised at how much I liked it, all things considered.

I had to work out a special… “deal” with Robert, but now that the deal is taken care of, I am allowing his name to be mentioned on GeneralsJoes again. :D
Over on his awesome blog page, the IDW G.I. Joe cover artist has showcased some more G.I. Joe art, specifically a beautiful Scarlett piece drawn by him and colored by Simon Gough, and also a nice little snippet of a Snow Job piece which is apparently part of a much bigger project.
Sideshow Collectibles has been giving us their “Ask Sideshow” Q & A’s for a while now, but it appears they’ve moved their operations to Facebook. In a post put up on Saturday, Sideshow reflects on an interesting G.I. Joe related question and an equally interesting answer:
“Question: When can we expect to see Great Joes like Snow Job, Mutt w/Junkyard,and Gung-Ho?
Answer: Of the Joes that we would like to tackle next, you’ve named two of our favorite four. Shipwreck is missing from your list, but who has the other slot? Hmmm…“
So it certainly sounds like Shipwreck is on deck, and likely one other of the three above figures listed. Any thoughts or opinions? Check out the Sideshow Collectibles Facebook page and hit ’em up with a “Like” to stay up to date on all Sideshow news and info.
Fresh of the excellent Zartan themed episode, G.I. Joe: Renegades returns again next week with episode 15: Whiteout! Featuring everyone’s favorite arctic specialist, Snow Job. Storm Shadow is chasing the Joes into Canada, partnered with the prototype Shadow-Vipers!
So, G.I. Joe: Renegades returns with new episodes next Friday, March 11th, but the episode shuffle has pushed “Whiteout” back to March 25th. To this point we hadn’t heard any episode details, but now TVGuide.com sheds some light on the subject:
“The prototype Shadow-Vipers and Storm Shadow follow the Joes to Canada, where they are hiding out with Snow Job.”
So Shadow-Vipers, Snow Job, and the return of Storm Shadow? Whiteout was initially an episode I wasn’t all that excited to check out, but suffice it to say, that’s changed now! Thanks to The Terror Drome for the information.
Slowly but surely I’m making my way through the first wave of G.I. Joe: Pursuit of Cobra figures.
Already I’ve got Alley-Viper, Duke, and Beachhead posted, and now I’ve added Snake Eyes, Storm Shadow, and Snow Job. I believe that just leaves Cobra Commander and Firefly, and with my HasbroToyShop order shipping this past weekend, I should be able to get those posted as well.
Just because I’m anal retentive, too, I may move the Beachhead review to pre-production and do my own production level review as well. Hawkwinter did a fantastic job, but I love Beachhead so much I’m itching to get a review in there as well.
Frequent GeneralsJoes contributor (a feat for which I am endlessly grateful) cmderinchief has posted yet another video review! Not content to cover just one item, though, he does a quick review of the TRU Exclusive Spirit, Quick Kick, the Pursuit of Cobra Duke & Snow Job, and also manages to say some words about the Canadian JoeCon convention sets!
Yeah, looks like someone at MonkeyBarTV got a little tipsy the night before work last Friday… what was being advertised as Episode 2 of Operation: HISS was likely Episode 3, and has now been pulled. However, the real Episode 2 is now online, featuring some arctic action. We see Timber, a little cameo from Snow Job, and hear some thick Scottish juice straight from Destro.
Check out the episode here, and some gratuitous screenshots below.
If it wasn’t already obvious enough, looking at this one, it’s pretty clear that Hasbro is taking full advantage of the 3d models from the video game. I mean, these designs look nearly identical…
So I haven’t really jumped all over the Past and Present idea…I mean, I absolutely love the concept, but there’s only so much Hasbro can do with it, and honestly, I didn’t think they started off very strongly with the Rockslide 2-pack. I’ve already got two Rise of Cobra Rockslides, and I’ve got plenty of vintage Snow Jobs and Battle Bears, with no real desire to drop money for more.
Thankfully, GeneralsJoes contributor Mysterious Stranger doesn’t agree, he picked up a set, and was awesome enough to submit a review! You can check it out on the Rise of Cobra Reviews Page, or just hit it directly right here.
