‘GI Joe 3’ Gets A Writer

by | 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

by | 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)
