G.I. Joe Kre-O:

 

- 9 building sets, and 28 Kreons to collect.

 

- Wave 2 will see Blowtorch, Dr. Mindbender, BAT, Flash, Major Bludd, Eel, Snowjob, Slice, Ripper, Tunnel Rat, Mutt and Junkyard.

 

Arashikage Dojo with Baroness, Destro, and Cobra Hiss. Snake-Eyes, Timber. Destro will have vac-metal head

 

G.I.Joe Toys.

 

Most the GIjoe being shown is the stuff we've already seen but was delayed because the movie was delayed while being converted in 3D.

 

Firefly Ninja Duel which they say is the best version they have ever done from wave 2 will be coming back out.

 

- Wave 3 - Ultimate Filint and Roadblock are coming. Also new will be Budo Samurai Warrior, Ultimate Storm Shadow based on the vintage. Ultimate Cobra Commander with hood and silver mask. Also Data Viper and Kwinn coming out in May.

 

- Wave 4 will include figures that were hard to find the first time around from the Retaliation line.

 

- New vehicle with Night Landing Raft with Cobra Eel and new Tomahawk with Lifticket rebuilt. Extra row of seats and helicopter blades fold in. Due out in Fall. New cockpit to fit modern figures. Cost $40

Tomahawk sounds good but of course, you're going to get a lift ticket with 5 POA, unless they just pack in the one from the POC line (which was flawless).

 

Glad they're getting Quinn out.

 

"Ultimate" Storm Shadow has already been done. It's called Renegades Storm Shadow. But he should be cool for those who never got him.

 

Ultimate CC soulds interesting.

 

Overall not bad news. Can't wait for pics!

So much incredible news! Data Viper and Kwinn! A $40 Tomahawk! And the continuation of Kreo! I haven't been this excited about GI Joe since the 25th Anniversary was on full swing.

I am thoroughly impressed with the few new items that we are seeing here. I LOVE that Ultimate Storm Shadow! He might become my favorite Joe figure. He looks perfect. I also love that new Cobra Commander. Finally a perfect version of him! Now, if only Destro could get the same treatment... since both of those were kinda let downs from the very first push of the 25th line.

 

 

and the Eaglehawk!!??!??!?!? I have to apologize to Hasbro because I didn't think they had this kind of epic-ness left in them. I am sorry for doubting you guys! That is sick and the price is great too! They even retooled it for modern figures! Outstanding.. (my only gripe is that it's the same paint deco as the first release.. which is great, but I already have one.) I can see myself buying a few of these and trying to paint them black or grey

YEah the GI Joe stuff is a pleasant suprise.

 

I'm down for Quinn, Ultimate CC, and one (ONE) good movie version of Roadblock, Duke, Lady Jaye, Flint, and maybe some ninjas. Glad I held off on ordering battle Kata Roadblock as it looks like it's really the wave 3 RB that I'm looking for. And I sincerely hope the pegs at Target aren't clogged with the first two waves to prevent them from ordering wave 3.

 

The "Eaglehawk" is great and I'm glad for people that are excited for it but I'm gonna pass there. It looks too much like the vintage Tomahawk which I already have. It's still a step in the right direction.

I may have to pick up an Eaglehawk...incidentally, why would you name a flying vehicle after something so redundant? It's like naming something like "Sharkfish" or "Tigercat". (Actually Tigercat sounds pretty cool...) (lol)

 

I'm pretty excited about the Eaglehawk. I used to have the original Tomahawk and it was always one of my favorite Joe vehicles. And I absolutely love the new cockpit details. It would look so sweet on display with the POC Low-Light, Lifeline, and General Hawk.

 

I'll be honest though, I would have liked to have seen more figures like that classic Cobra Commander, but I understand with the film coming up, they have to devote alot of shelf-space to the movie stuff.

Liking a lot of what was shown off, though I'm surprised we didn't see more new stuff. Love the Eaglehawk and the fact that Lift ticket is fully articulated. Now I'm really curious for Joe Con as we might get a better Idea of what lays ahead in the Future for Joe. Still find it funny that the first wave of Retaliation figures from last year had some funky articulations issue and none of the figures going forward seem to. I a disappointed note, I am slightly sad we're not getting a movie accurate CC or SS (with SS they could have just gave us a ROC SS with no leg holster and a slightly smaller version of the unmasked SS head).

Yeah, I agree, I was expecting to just be let down on Joe stuff and basically see what we saw last year, so the added new things are a little nice touch, remember, we still have Joe-Con and SDCC for more goodies they might announce(I hope, lol).

 

 

Someone was asking about Roadblock, might have been another thread. I think I'm personally going to hold off on getting a wave 2 movie Roadblock(or 2.5 or whatever he's being called, Battle Kata Roadblock), and I'm going to wait for Ultimate Roadblock:

I know he's basically the same, but the skin-tight shirt feels more like RB to me.

So are waves 1 & 2 coming out this month and 3 & 4 in August? I think all of the ones I want are in waves 3 & 4.

 

If that's true then that's a huge gap. But probably a good thing since I just came from Targe with 3 pegs stuffed full with wave 1 that isn't going anywhere any time soon.

I am with you clam. Part of me wishes it was a different color. Or maybe two release. One vintage and one a repaint. I have always dreamed of a gree Tomohawk and a green Mauler too. Man I want that last one redone asap Hasbro!

Isn't the problem with bringing out the Mauler is that part of the original mold is broken?

I'm not gonna take the chance on wave 3, I'm just going to preorder it from a site that I know won't mark it up (ie: not BBTS) and just pay the shipping. That wave is too full up with figures I want. There may be one or two I don't care about, but I'll ebay them. I barely bought anything in 2012, so I can justify it.
