Toy super site ToyArk.com has posted early pics from Hasbro’s G.I. Joe event at the New York Comic Con.  (See the mirrored images below.)

WOW– I’m seeing Slaughter’s Marauders, Renegades, and more Dreadnoks than you can shake a can of grape soda at!  Could it be that the situation of the brand isn’t as dire as thought or are these some of the many rumored exclusives that will be hitting both the Collector’s Club subscription and BigBadToyStore.com later this year?
