This past weekend we posted about Shout! Factory still working on the DiC G.I. Joe series for release on DVD. Shout! Factory’s Brian Ward addressed some concerns about the DiC license running out at the end of this year:
“We are working on G.I. Joe by DiC. Due to a NUMBER of other releases that have to come out this year, I’m not able to devote all the time necessary to get it out by December. But I can say that you should look for it not too long after that, most likely. Don’t worry. Time and effort are being put into it. But we didn’t set a date on purpose.”
With that said, it seems that Joe fans could be put at ease somewhat knowing that the DVD set (or sets) are still coming.
Well today, TVShowsOnDVD has pointed out a listing on Amazon.com for what could possibly be the Shout! Factory pre-order for the DiC G.I. Joe cartoon seasons 3 & 4. There isn’t much information or any cover art. Only real info is a run time of 540 minutes and a release date of January 10, 2012, which may or may not be accurate in itself. Thanks to Terror Drome reader Captain N for the heads up.
UPDATE: Looks like it is in fact the Shout! Factory DiC G.I. Joe release. It appears to be “Season 3″, picking up after the animated G.I. Joe movie. You can view the cover art below.
