There’s been a lot of buzz about the pending release of the first trailer for G.I. Joe: Retaliation — the game-changing sequel to Rise of Cobra. Regardless of what you may have thought about the first film’s quality, this one certainly boasts a lot more star power including Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Bruce Willis! Longtime friend of JBL Justin from GeneralsJoes.com posted some information that may help to influence Paramount to drop the trailer sooner rather than later. I’m just going to quote Justin’s post below:
In expressing my enthusiasm to see a trailer for next year’s G.I. Joe: Retaliation film, I had an opportunity to Tweet back and forth with the film’s director Jon Chu, and he recommended that if we want to see the trailer for the film, we should Tweet @ParamountPics and let them know.
So how about it, Joe fans? Can we get together and let Paramount know that we want to see this thing?
Those of you with Twitter accounts, hit up ParamountPics and let them know! If you don’t have Twitter, sign up and let’s do this!
Seriously guys– Justin’s right on the money. If Paramount thinks they’ve got an audience, they’ll drop the trailer sooner rather than making us wait for it. So, follow Justin’s advice and get on Twitter! Let the power-that-be know that you want to see that Joe trailer– hopefully before year’s end.
While you’re at it– give JBL a follow on Twitter as well at @JoeBattlelines
Thanks to GeneralsJoes for the heads up on this…well…BEAUTIFUL figure. Sideshow really knocked this one out of the park. Baroness is stunning in her 1:4 scale format. I’d go on more but anything else would be R rated.
It’s ironic that Mark Foster shared this with me today as I’d just been pondering what do dress up as for Halloween this year. 80sTees.com has dropped the price on their classic hooded Cobra Commander costume to a whopping $9.99! That’s right, for $50.01 less than previously offered you can done the cowl and mantle of the greatest criminal mastermind our world has ever seen.
Feel like putting your face on the moon? Toss this costume on and it becomes that much closer to reality! Want to control an army of cloned dinosaurs? This is the attire for you!
What are you waiting for– an invitation hand-delivered by the Springfield High School marching Vipers? Order one and be the envy of all of those poor saps that dress up as Twilight characters this year because their girl friends made them!
We’re at it again, this time we want to know from all JBL’ers what is your 10 favorite G.I.Joe A Real American Hero issue,s from the Marvel run and the current IDW continuation. So drop in and let us know which are your favorite and why. Hop on over to the thread HERE!
When the preview was first released all we were teased with was this image.
Not much of a thrill, but with Sideshow’s reputation you knew that this figure wouldn’t let us fans down, even if you don’t have the cash to spend on these works of art. If you own Duke and Flint you’ll want to get Hawk as well, the three of them look great standing together, toss Beachhead in there and you can relive the animated series.
If you are going to this years JoeCon here are a two more reasons why you are lucky to be going. The G.I.Joe Collectors Club has announced a special guest at this years JoeCon, Morgan Lofting the voice of the Baroness, the first woman of Cobra, in the classic animated series.
Toynewsi.com reports that Fun Publications will be making available a very limited number of CARDED 25th Anniversary Dial-Tone figures. The carded figure will be available at JoeCon as well as Hank Garrett, the voice of Dial-Tone, who will be signing carded figures purchased at the show. They will be limited to 600 pieces.
