Well, when you figure the Collectors Club has five short months to roll out two FSS’s, plus the extra 12 bonus figures, I guess they’d better move at a pretty quick pace.
As usual, JE Russel received his figures first (it pays to live close to the Club’s home office, I suppose), and I’m posting them below the “READ MORE” link below to preserve spoilers for those who are into those kinds of things.
Another announcement of an SDCC exclusive non-action figure oriented G.I. Joe item came yesterday with Super 7 revealing that they’re producing two t-shirts with a G.I. Joe theme.
The fact that Super 7 is doing Joe shirts isn’t necessarily new news, they’ve had several for sale on their website for quite a while. That being said, if Hasbro was ever considering them for producing toys similar to how they’re working on Masters of the Universe Classics consider this my official endorsement. 😀
IDW Publishing has released their preview for G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #253, which is a “special missions” style issue focusing on Duke. Check out the solicitation info and the preview below.
