Have Yourself Another Look At The G.I. Joe/Transformers SDCC Exclusives

by | July 6th, 2013

sdcc-comic-con-logoA big thanks to ACToys forum member, egnell, for now we have ourselves another look at the 2013 San Diego Comic-Con G.I. Joe/Transformers Exclusive Set. And a great look at that. Images of Baroness, Ravage, Bludgeon, Snake Eyes and Autobot Blaster have been shared with fans. The images show us an up close look at the Baroness and Bludgeon head sculpts, which look great. And not that we needed another Snake Eyes figure, this one certainly looks good though. Complete with an Autobot emblem.

So have yourself another look at the figure below. The SDCC Exclusive G.I. Joe/Transformers Set is priced at $99.99 and will be available at the HasbroToyShop.com booth #3329, during July 19–21 and in limited quantities online after Comic-Con. (Source: ACToys.net)

The 2013 G.I. Joe/Transformers SDCC Exclusives Appear on eBay

by | July 5th, 2013

sdcc-comic-con-logoIn just a couple of short weeks, San Diego Comic-Con will be upon us. That means lots of pop culture goodness. Including exclusive collectible toys. One such exclusive is the 2013 G.I. Joe/Transformers Exclusive Set. It features a Skystriker done up to look like the Autobot Jetfire, a VAMP to look like the Autobot Hound, a repaint of the upcoming G.I. Joe Retaliation Wave 3.5 Budo figure as the Decepticon Bludgeon, Baroness with the Decepticon Ravage, Autobot Blaster with cassettes and a Snake Eyes figure. Now, we have seen Hasbro’s official press images of this set, but now thanks to eBay seller viperskingdom we have another look at the set. Definitely an interesting set, it seems to be about 50/50 in terms of what fans like from it. Will you be attempting to add this to your collection in a couple of weeks?

You can view the SDCC Exclusives auctions here: Autobot Jetfire, Autobot Hound, Decepticon Bludgeon, Baroness with Decepticon Ravage, Autobot Blaster w/Cassettes and Snake Eyes.

In-Hand Images of the ‘G.I. Joe: Retaliation’ Cobra Combat Ninja Figure

by | June 24th, 2013

gijoe-retaliation-toy-line-logo-185x50ACToys forum member 2366049994 posted some in-depth images of the upcoming G.I. Joe: Retaliation Cobra Combat Ninja figure. The Combat Ninja (not to be confused with the Combat Ninja Cruiser) is one of the many new figures that will be released with the updated Retaliation Wave 3.5 line-up. It seems to have gone through a few changes since we saw the production samples at JoeCon last year and Toy Fair earlier this year. Personally I don’t think these changes change the figure that much, still making it a potentially great army builder for Joe fans. Look for this figure to arrive at retail later next month or early August. I’ve mirrored the in-hand Combat Ninja images below. (Source: ACToys.net)
