IDW Publishing Announces New Transformers/G.I. Joe Ongong Series

Posted by on Friday, October 11th, 2013

idw-publishing-logo-newHmmm…not sure how I feel about this, but IDW Publishing has announced a new Transformers/G.I. Joe crossover ongoing series. This is a stand-alone series that will explore the intriguing encounter between these two distinct properties. It will be written by Transformers veteran John Barber with art by Tom Scioli (Godland, American Barbarian). I’m a fan of both properties, but still not sure how I feel about these two being mixed together. I’m sure there are many fans of both that will really enjoy it and I suppose this is for them. If that is you, then look for this series in comic shops next summer. You can check out the press release for this announcement and a tiny piece of Transformers/G.I. Joe art below. (Source: IDW)

‘GI Joe 3’ Gets A Writer

Posted by on Tuesday, September 10th, 2013

movie-news-iconSo apparently G.I. Joe 3 has found its writer. Evan Daugherty has been tapped to write the third sequel. Daugherty wrote the Killing Season (2013), which I didn’t see, but apparently bombed at the box office. He also wrote 2012’s Snow White and the Huntsman, which wasn’t a bad movie. I certainly wouldn’t say any of its flaws are from the script. Also Daugherty was brought in to do a last-minute re-write for Paramount’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot. All I have to say is, I hope that he can deliver a solid movie. One were it doesn’t feel splintered. So I look forward to what he does. (Source: THR)

Listings for Two New Kre-O Sets, Wolverine Tank and Outpost Defender, Appear in Toys R Us Computers

Posted by on Tuesday, September 3rd, 2013

kre-o-create-it-logoOver at, forum member Master Chief discovered two new Kre-O G.I. Joe listings in the Toys R Us computer system. The listings include:

  • GI JOE Kreo Wolverine Tank $29.99
  • GI JOE Kreo Outpost Defender $12.99

According to Master Chief, these could be released in time for the holiday season. So even though there isn’t much 3.75″ G.I. Joe product left for this year, looks like we’ll still be seeing G.I. Joe on the shelves of Toys R Us at least. Now I hope that my local TRU can clear some of the Wave 1 sets in order to get some of these in. (Source: HissTank)
