Thanks to the GI Joe club, some better photos of the SDCC 2012 GIJoe/Transformers exclusive Shockwave HISS tank have surfaces revealing many of the accessories that will be coming alongside the custom vehicle. Good luck getting your hands on one of these, collectors. It is not going to be easy.
It appears the set will include the following:
HISS tank with custom Shockwave cannon turret
Constructicon colored BAT
Suitcase of cash
2 guns for Destro
2 contructicon colored weapons for the BAT
3 Energon cubes and cart to move them
A small scale Soundwave cassette player
3 cassettes to put in Soundwave

Toy Fair 2012: Hasbro Media pre-show event – GI Joe

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!

G.I. Joe: Retaliation Super Bowl Ad

Yeah, this starts with Dwayne Johnson quoting Jay-Z, but we also see Cobra Commander again. The first G.I. Joe: Retaliation Trailer only saw a blink of him, leading more than a few fans to cry that it was just a random Viper.

But upon closer focus in this ad, there can be no debate. This is Cobra Commander.

Really digging that mask. I see elements of the old Commander silver mask, Serpentor, the standard Viper infantry, and the IDW comics Cobra Commander.

Retaliation will release on June 29, 2012 in the US.

Maximum Letdown: Gi Joe vs Street Fighter vs Mortal Kombat (Action Figure Line)

This isn’t an actual game per se (although if you’re reading this Capcom, don’t let me stop you from making it), but rather it sums up one of the first North American attempts to make action figures based on Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat. These figures made use of Gi-Joe molds. In fact, the original series of Street Fighter action figures were advertised as being part of Gi-Joe, with M. Bison and his Shadowloo grandmasters being part of Cobra.

The Powet Top 5 – GI Joe Playsets

Welcome, Poweteers, to a brand new original column where we explore the top (and bottom) 5 items we think are relevant to any of a variety of topics that span the imagination. Sit back, read, and respond!

My original intention for this inaugural article was to think up 5 of what I consider to be the top action figure playsets. The more I thought about the topic, though, the more GI Joe playsets came to mind. So many in fact, that I decided to dedicate the entirety of the list to those playsets.

Also, as a small disclaimer, all images from this post originate from Its probably the best archival GI Joe toy site on the net. I’ve placed links to each listed item’s entry below. Check them out for more info and pictures!

PowetToys News for October 2011

Testing out a new format. Let me know what you think. Also an 8th Joe figure was announced yesterday, Barrel Roll. This was a little rushed so I know its lacking in a few areas, but I like to experiment.
