Over the last week or so I’ve been lucky enough to be able to share reviews of some upcoming product from Wave 4 and Wave 3, which have not yet been released at retail. With a big thanks to Gyre-Viper I’ve brought you reviews of Sci-Fi, Airtight, Law & Order, Scarlett, and Ripcord, and today, I’m finished off the Wave 3 reviews this morning, with the exception of Storm Shadow.
I am hoping throughout some point this week I can bring a few more reviews of upcoming product, time will tell. Just have to keep coming by to see what’s up.
Well, the notorious Gyre Viper is at it again, using his awesome connections to get the fandom some great images of upcoming product. With the release of Wave 3 on the horizon, he’s posted a bunch of images of these upcoming figures over on JoeDeclassified.com.
He has given me permission to mirror the images on my site as well, but be sure to hit up Joe Declass for some more great insight and conversation. Holy crap are these some nice looking figures!
Supposedly hitting in November, Wave 3 includes:
Ripcord (G.I. Joe: Renegades)
Scarlett (G.I. Joe: Renegades)
Tunnel Rat (G.I. Joe: Renegades)
Cobra Trooper (G.I. Joe: Renegades)
Storm Shadow (G.I. Joe: Renegades)
It must be noted that Storm Shadow is not in here, and doesn’t seem as if Gyre Viper got his hands on that one. The reasoning for that is unclear, but it should be noted that every case packout we’ve seen on Wave 3 so far includes Storm Shadow in the list, so I don’t think there is any reason to get up in arms about his release. I will admit it’s very odd that he hasn’t been seen in carded form yet, but time will tell if he is actually in the upcoming assortment or not. A big thanks as always to Gyre Viper for the images and the intel! Hit up JoeDeclassified for more great discussion.
Starting this week new episodes of G.I. Joe: Renegades move to Saturday night, and we kick it all off with Episode 16: Shipwrecked!
Featuring Shipwreck (obviously) and a few other cool Easter Eggs, this episode pits the Joes against a nasty futuristic looking Techno-Viper. Battle on the open seas!
