It’s official…after much inquiry of retailers and wondering, Hasbro PR has responded to fan questions about the RoC street date:
“G.I. Joe Fans:
As if celebrating the 4th of July weren’t cause for enough excitement, imagine having early access to a slew of G.I. JOE: The Rise of Cobra figures and vehicles. Well, your wish is our command.
Hasbro is pleased to announce that the first wave G.I. JOE: The Rise of Cobra toys are going to begin to hit shelves ONE WEEK EARLY, starting Monday, July 6th.
Beginning this Monday and rolling out throughout next week, your favorite retailers will be adding G.I. JOE: The Rise of Cobra figures and vehicles to their stores. This is your opportunity to be the first to get your hands on these highly anticipated toys.
If you could help us spread the word to other G.I. JOE fans, that would be great.
Thanks and have a terrific 4th of July weekend! Yo Joe!”
