  1. With thanks to streetfield and cmdrinchief, GeneralsJoes has posted a full one-sheet of cards for the upcoming G.I. Joe: The Rise of COBRA. Check 'em out!! Justin
  2. So I debuted "Sunbow Weekend" yesterday with the Top 5 Moments from the MASS Device. Today that continues with the Top 5 Moments from the Revenge of COBRA! Enjoy, and later tonight I'll be featuring a mini-review of the first Battle Pack. While you're on the site don't forget to check out the Marauder Review as well... When I relaunched the site I promised more content, and I think I'm delivering so far...let me know what else you guys want to see. Pimp Daddy Justin
  3. Had a camera catastrophe today, but luckily I got the pics for Marauder's latest series of weapons done first, and the review has been posted at GeneralsJoes! Direct Linkage Enjoy! Justin
  4. Perhaps folks will find this post at JoeSightings helpful... it was written by "Slicer-X" who's the one who has provided the (so far) 100% accurate Wal-Mart lists over the past couple of months: http://www.joesightings.com/forums/index.p...20&start=20 Some very interesting tidbits there... so we have questionable characters, a "mysterious" source, the figure breakdown per wave is wrong, and now we know the UPC numbers are flat out incorrect. Anyone still convinced this list is real? Justin
  5. Sorry, I don't buy it... no offense to the original poster but I think he either got erroneous information or some wires crossed somewhere. Reasons being: - A verified, confirmed Wal-Mart listing at JoeSightings here already gave the layout of what "Wave 9" is likely to be, and it doesn't fit that mold at all. Granted the Wal-Mart list hasn't been officially confirmed, but someone on HissTank.com called his Wal-Mart and verified the SKU's in the system. - Hasbro stated in one of their Q & A's that Cover Girl was NOT being planned for release - Scarface is appearing in a Comic Pack assortment this spring/summer, I strongly doubt they would push him back out in ANOTHER Comic Pack soon thereafter. - Mangler? Not gonna happen. He's too obscure, too plain, and would not warrant his own release in a Comic Pack - In that above Wal-Mart list, the Iron Grenadier is listed as coming in a Comic Pack. They wouldn't release him in a future comic pack, then single-pack him so shortly thereafter. Same with Scrap Iron. - The numbers used up there seem to mesh with "Wal-Mart" retail manufacturing assortment numbers. A Hasbro employee (who supposedly supplied this list) would not have access to those numbers. Only Wal-Mart would. - Your aunt lives in California? And she talked to her friend who works for Hasbro? Hasbro's based in Rhode Island... Sorry, not sure where the numbers and names came from, but it just doesn't fit in my opinion. Nobody should get their hopes up too high... Justin
  6. Well, considering Wal-Mart computers are pretty consistently receiving listings in them for product that will not be available until late in 2008, I don't think we can expect them to stop carrying the line any time soon... Justin
  7. I think most fans out there are aware of the Canadian JoeMeet... held every April, a bunch of Joe fans from various countries (not just Canada!) meet in Hamilton, Ontario for the annual JoeMeet. Heck, this year the Meet is being attended by Hasbro Canada and the Father of G.I. Joe himself, Larry Hama! Anyway... JoeCanuck is the site behind the Canadian JoeMeet, and they've launched their first online newsletter. Articles, figure reviews, even Joe-themed games! It looks pretty neat and it's free at the JoeCanuck site. Click here to check out the first newsletter, and of course check out the JoeCanuck site itself. Also, check out all the great details about the 2008 JoeMeet here! It promises to be a pretty cool experience!
  8. ... now. Continuity is pretty thick in this one, too, so if you aren't up on the GeneralsJoes history, you may want to check out the timeline. Enjoy and I welcome any feedback you have! Justin
  9. The Wave 1 first looks continue at YoJoe with Snow Job! Also, Generals Joes has posted the full review of Flash here!
  10. YoJoe and GeneralsJoes have teamed up to provide exclusive "First Looks" of select figures from the first wave of 2008 25th Anniversary figures! First up is Sgt. Flash: First Look Archive Entry Keep your eyes peeled at GeneralsJoes also which will feature full length reviews with tons of pictures shortly after the First Look appears at YoJoe! The 25th Anniversary still goes strong in 2008!
  11. Thanks, guys, glad you liked the reviews! I appreciate the photo offer, Joe, but I managed to score a Dolphin/Shark Shipwreck today, so I can grab a pic... Admiral, here's the link to the Con review: http://generalsjoes.com/reviews/2007/exclu...conset07-1.html Thanks for the feedback! Justin
  12. Well, it's not really a database, but there's Sigma 6 Central. If you go to the Toys Section there will be headers for the different branches of figures, and then links to all figures with reviews, pictures, etc... Justin
  13. Thanks to my boy Fred at JBL, I got my Wave 2 and 3 in the mail over the past week and I'm repaying that kind act by scooping him on the reviews... :shifty: GeneralsJoes now has Wave 3 up in the review section: Shipwreck Stalker Firefly Red Ninja Zartan Enjoy, and be sure to check out JBL's Anniversary Reviews as well, Fred will be getting them up VERY soon! Justin
  14. Actually, pretty much all of the classic art has been redone for the 25th anniversary stuff. Little stuff like the knife in Baroness' hand, Flint's holding his new shotgun, different things like that. I don't think any of the 25th art is reproduced original art, it's all be redone and some of it has been modified in some way. Justin
  15. Hasbro has been announcing the official launch date of 25th stuff as "August" for the entirety of 2007...so here it is, August, and sure enough, they're hitting mass release. This is how distribution works: - Hasbro warehouses ship product to retailer "DC's" - Retailer DC's organize product, analyze sales, prioritize shipments - Retailer DC's ship product to brick & mortar stores based on priority - Brick & Mortar stores receive product - Brick & Mortar stores put product on shelves This is absolutely not an instantaneous process. These items are often shipped by truck and it takes time to process shipments and allocate them to the correct locations. So far things have gone exactly as Hasbro has told us (as far as when these would be available). Heck, I told folks a while ago that these wouldn't be hitting strong until the August "resets" (which are just happening now). So, if Hasbro is saying September, October, well, I'd take them at their word. Justin
