It was just about a month ago when we helped announce a brand-new line of G.I. Joe action figures from Hasbro Toys when they revealed the 6″ Snake-Eyes, which was one of the most popular characters in this line. If you didn’t see that announcement, just click HERE to be brought up to speed. Now its time to see what the villains are up to with this reveal from the clandestine headquarters of Cobra Command.
The Press Release:
YO JOE! G.I. JOE explodes into a larger-than-life era with brand new 6-inch scale figures, evolving classic characters fans know and love into a highly articulated 6-inch scale with premium deco and details. The G.I. JOE Classified Series Cobra Commander Action Figure features a classic design updated to bring the iconic Cobra leader into the modern era. The figure comes ready for action, with multiple points of articulation making it highly poseable and accessories inspired by the character’s rich history, including his signature sword. The G.I. JOE Classified Series Cobra Commander collectible package will also make a mark on shelves, featuring display-worthy custom artwork from Dan Mumford.
About a week ago I shared some press news about an exclusive “Transformers” figure of Optimus Prime that could only be secured at the upcoming Comic Con International: San Diego (SDCC) and if you missed that post just click HERE to see it. Now its time to share the skinny on a license that I was a big fan of back in the day, the “G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero” line of figures. This coming July, attendees of the convention can get a limited edition “Cobra Missile Command Headquarters” playset that calls back to the good old days. Take a look at some press and images that were provided.
