HissTank forum member dcooper reports that Burger King will apparently be doing a promotion with G.I. Joe: The Rise of COBRA and offering toys related to the film through their restaurants. There will be toys and posters, and potentially some sort of “exclusive” to help drive up interest.

Video game site WorthPlaying.com has posted a trio of new screen shots from the upcoming G.I. Joe: The Rise of COBRA video game by Electronic Arts. There’s no new information and nothing revolutionary in these new screens, but a new look at the game is always cool with me.

EDIT – Apparently these screen shots have been released to most major video game sites out there, WorthPlaying is just the first one I spotted them at…
Ever since Destro debuted on the Black Sheep Toy Store a few weeks ago, many US-based Joe fans have been getting this figure in their mailbox, and now I can count myself in that camp. I took the opportunity to take some pictures of the figure and do up an impromptu review for those interested.
The character of Destro is indellible in the G.I. Joe mythos, and some might argue he is as important to the story, if not moreso, than COBRA Commander himself. He brought a sense of honor and tradition to the super villain role, and successfully walked the line between soulless evil-doer and a man of integrity. Some might say he actually walked that line a bit too well, for being a weapon supplier for terrorists.
For the past week we’ve been getting several reports of the sizzles and footage shown at ShoWest, and now, as the show wraps up, a couple of G.I. Joe’s stars received honors during the event. Sienna Miller, starring as The Baroness, received the award for Supporting Actress of the Year, and had this to say:
“It was a strange experience,” she says of the commercial film, which includes myriad computer-generated effects she hasn’t yet seen. “I never had to duck in front of a green screen, pretending to dodge something that wasn’t there. But it is nice to get an award before the movie’s even out. I wonder if they’d do that with the Oscars. It takes the pressure off.”
Meanwhile, Dennis Quaid received his own award for Male Star of the Year, and will be appearing as General Hawk in the upcoming film.
Good to see G.I. Joe and its cast getting some mainstream publicity! Click here to check out the article from USA Today about ShoWest and the awards.
