sideshow-collectibles-logoSideshow Collectibles posted a preview gallery of images for their next G.I. Joe Sixth Scale Figure offering, Ninja Assassin Storm Shadow! Based on the appearance of his 1988 A Real American Hero action figure, this Storm Shadow looks amazing. Though he is featured with Cobra allegiance, fans will most likely recognize this look as he was when he first appeared with the Joe team. Regardless of his loyalties, I like the overall appearance of this figure.

Posted by on Thursday, August 8th, 2013

gijoe-2-retaliation-logo-temp121011smIt looks like once again that G.I. Joe Blu-ray/DVD release proves to be a hot ticket item. G.I. Joe: Retaliation dominated the weekly sales with its release last week. So once again, all the closet G.I. Joe live-action movie haters came out in droves to get their copies to secretly watch the movie in the sanctity of their homes without judgement. I’m kidding. Well partly at least. Their wasn’t a lot of competition for G.I. Joe: Retaliation” last week, as the animated movie, “Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox and “42” were the only other new movie Blu-ray/DVD releases. It is also possible that the fact there are too many options to buy, so fans are buying multiple copies? Still good to hear that it is having successful sales so far, the same thing happened in 2009 with G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra which helped lock in the sequel for the movie. (Source: THR)
