Thanks to Twitter user The Snackist for letting us know that Amazon.com is currently having a huge sale on its G.I. Joe (and other ) DVD’s! Many of them are at rock bottom prices.
If you haven’t caught up on your G.I. Joe media recently, this is a great chance to grab some DVD’s and back up to date. G.I. Joe: Resolute, G.I. Joe: Renegades, DiC, and Sunbow are all on sale. Check out some of the links below!
Lots of great G.I. Joe themed trade paperback collections, comics, and other media as well. Check it out!
Also, the Amazon shop in general has some great DVD/Blu-Ray deals today… might be worth checking out.
So, the cool guys at the Cold Slither Podcast Tweeted out a link to one of my old articles covering the history of Roadblock for folks who needed to bone up on their G.I. Joe history before catching G.I. Joe: Retaliation.
That kicked a reminder at me that maybe I should get that post back up on top since G.I. Joe: Retaliation has officially opened and there might be people wondering just who this Roadblock dude is. You can see the original post right here, but I’ve also reposted it at the Read the Rest of the Story link below.
As time continues to roll on, it feels a bit odd writing up these updates, considering how far along I am now, but how far back I feel like I should write so I don’t skip too much time. Folks who have been following along, know that in Part Three I talked about the sudden appearance of 7 feet of copper piping on one wall, and how that threw my entire display idea into flux. The builder accommodated nicely by walling around those pipes and the wall-mounted ventilation system, giving me some room to work with.
At this point, we’ve been living in the house for about two months, and the room is starting to come together. Click the read the rest of the story link below for the full details.
Obviously the big news for the day is the revelation that G.I. Joe: Retaliation has been quickly and suddenly delayed from June 29, 2012 to March 29, 2013. The reason we’ve been given for this date is that they want to convert the film to 3D.
Is that the real and true reason?
There seems to be some conflict online throughout the fandom about what this really means and what the potential impact might be. Is this a terrible by move by Paramount? Could there be any redeeming value to this choice? Please click the Read the Rest of this Story link below to get my thoughts on this, with 12 hours to think it over.
Quickly becoming one of my favorite things to check up on, the G.I. Joe: Special Ops online game has added two more familiar faces to the roster today with Lady Jaye and the Cobra Viper. Taking elements from various continuities, G.I. Joe: Special Ops seems like it’s trying to sample the best from everything. Lady Jaye wears a tactical vest and is an established hard ass, yet she totes around javelins, and wears her hair long sort of like Adrianne Palicki.
The Cobra Viper looks a lot like the Viper we all know and love, but with a distinctly Sideshow Collectibles twist. Thjey seem to be bringing a lot of very cool elements together. Now we just have to see how the game plays! Check out the SyFy G.I. Joe: Special Ops website, and also check out the mirrored images below.

Gyre Viper and his excellent crew of cast mates have finished and posted the latest episode of the JoeDeclassified Spec Ops (JDSO) Podcast! In this episode, they bite deep into the canceled Nano BAT, Iron Klaw, and even touch on the canceled Crimson Guard figure that was slated to come in the same comic pack as Iron Klaw.
Perhaps the coolest thing about this episode are the accompanied images, which have all been posted over at JoeDeclassified.com. These images show some incredibly awesome detail from the unreleased Iron Klaw, Nano BAT, and Crimson Guard.
Keep in mind, these are not the FSS figures, these samples were canceled figures initially slated to appear in the G.I. Joe 25th Anniversary line (Iron Klaw vs. Crimson Guard Trooper Comic Pack) and the Rise of Cobra line (Nano BAT). The insight in this episode is awesome.
Check it out at JDSO’s Podbean page, and please also check out the accompanying images on JoeDeclassified.com. Some really awesome stuff here. Kudos to these guys for such a great show. Hopefully I’ll be joining them on it soon!
