Well apparently Hasbro saying, “we aren’t showing you anything new at JoeCon,” only meant any new retail figures. Because this afternoon, Hasbro decided to tell you they still don’t like you, and once again decided to tease you some more with Concept Case, Part 2. These are more figures (along with a couple from last year’s Concept Vault) that are not planned for release any time soon. These are concepts only! So enjoy the nice tease. I want to say this as a note, I’m mostly joking about Hasbro hating you. Just quite the “gut punch” to see these things knowing they are not coming out any time soon (or at all). So I’m just having fun with it. (Images courtesy of Terror Drome member wolfyhound)

Kicking things off are a couple of images that have popped up, along with the Convention Exclusives list from the Con Exclusive Comic Book/Program Guide. First up, thanks to the Official G.I.

This week from IDW Publishing comes the continuation of G.I. Joe: Special Missions. In issue #2, Scarlett and her team are in a race against the Baroness to recover the billions of dollars of Cobra’s money at the bottom of the ocean and both sides are about to go head-to-head. And Serpentor is about to put a kink in the Baroness’ plans to recover the money. Be sure to check out the return of a classic title written by Chuck Dixon (G.I. Joe, Snake Eyes) and art by Paul Gulacy.

Well in a definite surprise move, Andrew Stewart of Variety is reporting that Paramount has greenlit a third G.I. Joe movie. Reports are coming in that G.I. Joe: Retaliation has done about $132 Million (estimated) Worldwide this opening weekend. And apparently Paramount thinks this is enough to call for a sequel. With some competition ahead for Retaliation, I still have to wonder what kind of “legs” the movie has in long-term box office numbers. Still some great news to hear a third movie will be made. Maybe this time around Cobra Commander will finally be the main antagonist, as opposed to Destro and Zartan from the first two. I supposed this should also be taken as a rumor until official word from Paramount is released. (Source: Twitter)
Yo Joe! After a $132 mil opening for G.I. JOE: RETALIATION, Paramount said it will move forward with a third JOE.

Terror Drome reader and Joe Community member, Dave C, passed along that he came across this great video that parodies the G.I. Joe toy commercials of the ’80s using G.I. Joe: Retaliation footage. It actually comes across pretty cool and funny. Also sums up the feel of the movie in its basic sense too. Anyways, check it out below, it is very well done and I’m sure it will bring back some memories for you.
I have to admit, I’ve struggled with what exactly I wanted to say since seeing G.I. Joe: Retaliation at the 7pm showing on Tuesday, March 26th. See, I did enjoy the movie, but I felt it could do better. Don’t get me wrong, it is certainly better than the 2009 G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, and it is pretty much the movie fans deserved. But something about just felt off. Continue →
