“Rise of Cobra” Wave 4 now available for pre-order at HasbroToyShop.com!

Rise of Cobra Wave 4 Kamakura

Rise of Cobra Wave 4 Kamakura

I’ll admit it — I’m an unabashed Kamakura fan.  I like the concept, I loved Brandon Jerwa’s FANTASTIC “Master & Apprentice” mini-series, and I’ve liked every 3.75″ figure of the character made to date.   So, imagine my giddiness (yes, I just said that) when I checked HasbroToyShop.com this morning and saw that the Wave 4 figures are now available for pre-order!

No idea on when they’ll be arriving but Kamakura cannot get here soon enough!!  (Just when I was starting to shoot review pics again too… )

Remember, the discount code “GIJoe10” is still good for 10% off!

Walmart “Rise of Cobra” figures listed… sort of…

walmartRemember the end of “Raiders of the Lost Ark”?  The final scene where the Ark is crated up and hauled off into a seemingly endless warehouse full of other boxes- apparently never to be seen again?

Such is the fate of the “Rise of Cobra” two packs on Walmart.com.  They don’t show up under the “action figures” or “G.I. Joe” categories and they do not show up if any of the character names are searched.

Thanks to our sister-site GeneralsJoes.com, we at least have links to the sold-out products.  (They were in stock for all of one day.)

  • Gung Ho vs. Copperhead
  • Shockblast vs. Night Creeper
  • Tunnel Rat vs. Monkeywrench

    “Joeing is Half the Battle!” – PvP Online

    The web comic PvPonline takes a fun stab at G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra in a recent  comic.  While the movie isn’t quite so exaggerated it’s a fun look at the new “RoC” Joe universe.

    I’ve mirrored the comic below but you can find the original HERE.
