Its here! Toy Fair 2012 kicked off yesterday in traditional fashion a day early with a Hasbro media event done the day before the show begins. In it, they show off a great deal of what their fans have to look forward to over the next year or so. There was so much information from the panel that I needed to break it down into sections. This post represents all of the GI Joe information I could scrounge together reading the coverage from other sites. I like to think I filled in a lot of gaps by using so many resources, but i will allow you to be the judge. Read on after the jump for more!

Some general statistics
50 Retaliation figures (includes drivers)
9 vehicles
4 Core figs
1 Core vehicle

Jinx’s name can’t be used (at least in the toy line) so they will be naming her Kim Arashikage. I used Jinx below to avoid any confusion.

Movie line will be fully released by early June, with additional exclusives later in the year.
Wave 1
Roadblock, Snake Eyes, Cobra Commander, Duke, Storm Shadow, Zartan, GI Joe Trooper, Cobra Trooper, Red Ninja
Wave 2 coming in July/August
