First sighting of 2016 G.I. Joe 2-Packs at Toys “R” Us!

Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines!  Three weeks before the announced November, 2016 release timeline, Ryan over on the G.I. Joe Discussion Group on Facebook has found the first indications of the 2016 G.I. Joe line.  Featured in his image is the Heavy Duty/Stiletto and Zombie Viper two packs.

Pretty exciting to see new G.I. Joe product on the shelves again, so let’s do our part to remove them from the shelves, shall we?  Go get ’em!


G.I. Joe 30th Anniversary Wave 4 Processing through BBTS

Joe fans have been on the edge of their seats, and as usual, it’s feast or famine.  Just like Waves 1 & 2 struck almost simultaneously, I received my set of Wave 3 from Big Bad Toy Store last night, and received notification that Wave 4 was now processing!  How’s that for service?

Items are mostly listed in a “Pre Order” status, but they are showing up at BBTS, and promise to be hitting Kokomo Toys early next week.  Buckle your seat belts, Joe fans.  Wave 4 is without a doubt the strongest wave, top-to-bottom that we’ve ever seen in the modern era, and I really don’t think that’s hyperbole.

Hit up Big Bad Toy Store to check out their stock, and while you wait until the figures are available, get caught up on my advanced reviews as well! has 30th Anniversary Wave 4 on Pre-Order

Somehow I missed this tidbit last week, but has launched their pre-orders for the upcoming 30th Anniversary Wave 4 figures!  Very good pricing by the set or by the case, hit up the links below to take advantage of these pre-order offers:

G.I. Joe: 30th Anniversary Wave 4 Pre-Orders are Online!

With the third wave of 30th Anniversary and G.I. Joe: Renegades figures hitting mailboxes now, of course attention has already turned to Wave 4.  Well, good news from a couple of different fronts as various online vendors now have Wave 4 available for pre-order!

GeneralsJoes Reviews 30th Anniversary Wave 4 Lifeline and Zombie-Viper

A little over a week ago I was able to devote some serious time to reviewing upcoming G.I. Joe 30th Anniversary Wave 3 and Wave 4 figures, thanks to Gyre-Viper.  Well, he did me another solid favor and passed along the upcoming Lifeline and Zombie-Viper as well!

In fact, he and online community member Glumby have been doing an awesome job with their connections enabling many Joe fans to check this stuff out prior to release.

So without further ado, I encourage you to hit up my 30th Anniversary Review Page, or the links below to check out these latest reviews of two excellent new additions to the G.I. Joe action figure family.

Make sure you keep your eyes on as well!  Throughout the rest of this week I’ll be posting reviews for the soon to be released 7-Packs of the Dreadnoks and Slaughter’s Marauders!

GeneralsJoes Review-A-Palooza – The Sequel

Remember like a week and a half ago when I ran those daily reviews for G.I. Joe 30th Anniversary figures that hadn’t been officially released yet?  Yeah, that was awesome.  Guess what I’m doing again?

Starting on Monday, I will once again be diving headfirst into new product review hell!  I’ll be tackling a couple of key figures from the 30th Anniversary Wave 4 assortment that haven’t yet been covered (hmmm, I wonder who…) and I’m also happy to announce I’ll be reviewing the Dreadnoks and Slaughter Marauder 7-Packs from Big Bad Toy Store!

This will make for many late nights for me, but hopefully also late nights for the readers who get to check out all of the details and images prior to official release!

Until then, make sure you catch up on my 30th Anniversary Review Page, which has almost all of Wave 3 and also a chunk of Wave 4.  Last, but certainly not least, I must once again give props to Cobra Island for coining the Review-A-Palooza term.  I dig it.

In hand images of upcoming 30th Anniversary Lifeline and Zombie-Viper

Run don’t walk to!

The ever omnipotent Gyre Viper has posted some great in hand images of the upcoming 30th Anniversary Wave 4 Lifeline and Zombie-Viper due for release soon from Hasbro.  These figures round off Wave 4 of the 30th Anniversary (along with Sci-Fi, Airtight, and Law & Order) and look to keep up the quality of the other three figures.  Very nice.

Check out all the great images at, and I’ve also mirrored some of the images below.

And of course, after you’ve drooled over these early images, keep on coming back here to, as the full reviews should be going up very soon!

Carded images appear for 30th Anniversary Lifeline and Zombie Viper

It was only a short while ago that the folks over at AC Toys gave us carded images of most of Waves 3 and 4 of the upcoming 30th Anniversary figures, but noticeable by their absences were both Lifeline and Zombie Viper.

Well today that has been rectified as we get some very nice and detailed images of the undead Cobra and the G.I. Joe medic, both coming from the fourth wave of 30th Anniversary figures.  Check out the images here, or take a peek at them mirrored below.

Thanks much to The Terror Drome for the info.
