The G.I. Joe/Transformers “Old Snake & Stealth BATs” set is now IN STOCK at the G.I.Joe Collector’s Club store!
The past few years have seen more G.I. Joe/Transformers crossovers than I would have thoguht possible including three SDCC exclusives from Hasbro. This year Fun Publications, the company behind both the G.I. Joe Collector’s Club and the Transformers Collectors Club, announced two different crossover sets– one featuring Marissa Faireborne, the daughter of Flint and Lady Jaye, and a second featuring a beloved character from the Transformers episode “Only Human.” In this episode, the villain Drath approached an indvidual named “Old Snake” for his synthoid technology, something that Cobra had used numerous times in the G.I. Joe cartoon. Old Snake, as most fans will immediately recognize, was intended to be the future version of Cobra Commander! Continue reading →
Color me a bit surprised on this one. Yesterday was “HTS Day” for many Joe fans who found their browsers perpetually directed to HasbroToyShop.com, hoping for a chance to snag one of the 2016 SDCC G.I. Joe exclusives at the retail price. Around 10am CST yesterday, the products went live and the site’s bandwidth was overwhelmed. However, after a few hours the digital dust cleared and something interesting happened.
The 2016 SDCC G.I. Joe exclusives were still IN STOCK.
The same is true as of Wednesday morning. So, if you’re looking for either of these sets and passed on the frenzy yesterday, use the links below and grab the 2016 SDCC G.I. Joe exclusives hassle-free!
The SDCC 2015 Desert Duel exclusive set review has been posted!
This year was a pretty good year for SDCC exclusives. The Crimson Strike set featured two new vehicle deco’s and four exclusive figures. Yet, it only told half the story– which was completed in the Toys R Us exclusive SDCC 2015 Desert Duel set. This set featured only two exclusive characters over the standard retail version that’s starting to hit stores now but it also introduced the Joe fandom to the upgraded FOE Striker and Cobra Basilisk!
Want to know what two long-time Joe fans thought of the SDCC 2015 Desert Duel set? Did the FOE Striker live up to the hype? Is the Cobra Basilisk going to replace the familiar HISS Tank any time soon? Can Fred and Chris agree on anything this time around?
The 2015 SDCC Kre-O Slaughter’s Marauders set has been reviewed!
When it comes to both Sgt. Slaughter and Kre-O, I know of no bigger fan than Todd Weinzierl of JBL’s sister site Magnum6Delta.com. So, when it came time to review this set I had to seek out the expert– and luckily he was willing to share his thoughts on the SDCC Kre-O Slaughter’s Marauders set that has taken the fandom by storm this summer. After all, many fans thought that they’d never see Hasbro have the opportunity to produce another Sgt. Slaughter figure again!
Looking for the SDCC Desert Duel set that is an exclusive to EntertainmentEarth.com? Well, check out Toys R Us’ SDCC exclusives page. It’s up for order RIGHT NOW!
To recap why this set is so unique, it not only includes all of the standard pieces but it has the exclusive Night Fox and Cobra Air Trooper figures! That’s right– two extras figures are included that won’t be found in the standard version. The entire set includes:
Dare I say it! Check out this “sneak peek” of FSS 4 Tiger Force Sneak Peek!
TIGER FORCE ADVANCED RECON: SNEAK PEEK
(Based on the European exclusive Tiger Force action figure!)
Includes: removable helmet & vest, assault rifle, binoculars, field radio, NEW periscope, and figure stand.
The reveals from FSS 4 are coming fast and furious these days! With the July 15th signup deadline fast approaching the Club seems driven to finish all of the previews this week! After Tiger Force Sneak Peek, only two more reveals remain!
The SDCC 2015 Crimson Strike set has landed at JBL!
G.I. Joe has had a pretty good run of SDCC exclusives over the past few years. Starting with the infamous “Pimp Daddy Destro” and going all the way through the Danger at the Docks, fans have found themselves anticipating the announcement of each year’s newest piece.
The Crimson Strike is, by all means, a reverse of the forthcoming Silent Strike set that will debut at Toys R Us in August 2015. Here, G.I. Joe and Cobra have essentially traded vehicles– with the Cobra Scythe taking to the air while the G.I. Joe Chimera attempts to stave off its attacks. Somewhere on the ground, a random Alley Viper Officer runs around causing chaos.
Is the Crimson Strike set worth the effort to track down? Does the HISS work as a G.I. Joe vehicle? Is the Skystriker really flying for Cobra now?
