I’ve made no secret that I try to promote some Amazon sales through my site to not just bring to light some good deals, but also because as an Amazon Affiliate, purchases made through my affiliate link help support the website.
I try to keep the shilling to a minimum, but with Black Friday/Cyber Monday coming up, I figured this might be a good time to showcase some deals.

I promise this will be at least somewhat G.I. Joe related, but I won’t lie, I am an Amazon Affiliate and I may partake, from time to time, of promoting that fact here.
I will endeavor to make sure that I’m promoting content that is useful to readers, though.
We’ve got a big week at Amazon this week with lots of potential geek friendly wares.
1. Seinfeld: The COMPLETE SERIES– Less than $60!
2. Spider-Man Legends – With the Ultimate Green Goblin Build-A-Figure!
3. Down Set Fight!– Graphic Novel by big G.I. Joe fans Chris Sims and Chad Bowers
4. Thor: The Dark World– (Pre-Order; Set for Release February 25th)
5. G.I. Joe Eaglehawk Helicopter – (On sale for $38.34 with Prime Shipping!)

7. G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero Vol. 8– (Issues #191 – 195, get caught up!)
Again, I do apologize for the shameless sponsorship and sales tactics, but I will be spreading the Amazon magic here from time to time. Hopefully it’s useful!

And yeah, I won’t pretend to not be feeling a personal connection here.
I’m not sure how many folks are aware of it (I certainly wasn’t) but the Amazon Kindle service has a “Kindle Worlds” library and service, which has generated licensing deals with many brands out there, allowing authors to write fiction based in those universes, and collect royalties for that fiction work.
As of today, Kindle Worlds as reached a licensing agreement with Hasbro for the world of G.I. Joe! G.I. Joe is rich with fanfiction creators, and the idea that these people can potentially format and submit their work for official placement in the Kindle library is pretty huge, and I won’t lie, I’m really excited about this.
Some folks might remember, I first made my way into the online G.I. Joe fandom with my work on The Price of Peace, a 350 – 400 page monster novel that consumed a year of my life and helped spring board my dio-story universe. The idea that work like this could actually generate some income and be available worldwide on the Kindle platform? Yeah, that’s pretty bad ass right there.
The full details can be seen right here, and I’ll also copy the press release after the jump.
