So far these Wal-Mart listings have been fairly accurate, but let’s remember these are rumor until we see actual confirmation. Forum member Ghost Target has revealed the following figures that have been dug out of the Wal-Mart inventory:

The Hasbro booth has apparently started displaying some of the incredible character artwork from the upcoming Resolute animated series. They have inputs up for Duke, Firefly, Snake Eyes, Scarlett, Airborne, Storm Shadow and Destro. Some are more revealed than others. JBL is hard at work attempting to get full pictures of all artwork, but until we do, you can check out Hisstank.com and Entertainment News International to get some glimpses of the great designs that are going into this series.
Sideshow Collectibles has posted pre-orders for the Regular and Exclusive edition 12″ COBRA Commander figures. The exclusive edition comes with a snake-headed staff with concealed blade only seen in that version. For whatever reason the exclusive and standard editions are both the same price, $99.99.
The regular version of the 12″ Snake Eyes also has a pre-order up at $119.99, the exclusive version of everyone’s favorite G.I. Joe ninja has sold out. More pictures have been posted at the previous links as well. Thanks to Felix from the JBL forums for the information.
JBL contributor Nomad reports from the floor of SDCC that the new “Best of” Entertainment DVD Battle Pack has been put out on display! While we unfortunately do not have pictures as of yet, the set features the following:
– Jet Pack Duke with a screaming head
– Cobra Trooper w/ Parachute pack, new helmet and the head is tooled with hair
– Cobra Commander w/ Chute pack, new chromed face, new helmet tooling, a CLAW and the bomb prop he tries to blow up the Statue of Liberty with in the Intro of the movie.
During the onslaught of SDCC news, the G.I. Joe Collectors’ Club has revealed official pictures of their upcoming release of DTC Wave 4, a previously unreleased series of o-ring toys from Hasbro.
The line up of figures was first revealed at the Joe Convention and it includes Airtight, Falcon, Outback, COBRA Officer, Night-Viper, Munitia (pictured left), and Python Patrol Copperhead. According to the Collectors’ Club, these figures will be visible at SDCC throughout this week and weekend as well.
Nicely detailed pictures of the figures in their new paint deco’s are now up on GIJoeClub.com here.
