Hasbro has issued a Press Release for ComicCon going on later this week and this weekend. In the release, they focus on the G.I. Joe Brand specifically:
G.I. JOE, the original action figure, has delivered classic adventure and memorable characters to generations of kids and collectors for nearly 45 years. With the introduction of the G.I. JOE VS. COBRA saga more than 25 years ago, millions of fans met characters such as DUKE, SNAKE EYES, STORM SHADOW and COBRA COMMANDER through toys, comics and animation. Next summer, the compelling G.I. JOE VS. COBRA storyline comes to life on the big screen with the debut of a live action movie from Paramount Pictures and Hasbro on August 7, 2009.“
