When the news broke that the G.I. Joe: Retaliation toy line would be getting pushed back to 2013 to be in line with the film release, I held on to desperate hope that Wave 2 at least would still hit retail on time.
That soon proved to be a fruitless hope as online retailers confirmed rumors that beginning immediately all distribution of G.I. Joe: Retaliation figures was being put on hold. That essentially meant that everything from Wave 2 on was being delayed. Knowing how cool some the Wave 2 figures looked, I was very disappointed.
Now the only issue with a line getting cut so close to retail release is that production level samples end up out in the wild, and that was definitely the case with these figures as well. I got my hands on them and I was not disappointed in the end results. Check out my G.I. Joe: Retaliation review page, or just hit up the links below.
EDIT – I had an old review file uploaded with incorrect “Star Ratings”. I’ve adjusted them properly and re-uploaded. Sorry about that!
