G.I. Joe Resolute is back on shelves of Walmart stores!
The micro series debuted on Cartoon Network’s website back in 2009 as a series of 10 minute webisodes. Penned by writer Warren Ellis, Resolute took a decided darker tone with the G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero mythos that included the off-screen deaths of several core characters. It also featured what may be the first definitive animated footage of G.I. Joe characters using weapons that fired actual bullets! (Yes, I realize that there are shots in Sunbow that show shell casings but the weapon’s discharge is still indicated to be laser beams.)
G.I. Joe Resolute spawned a few action figures and then POOF! It was gone! Whatever the intent behind the project was it certainly wasn’t a long-term marketing push.
