Any Rhode Islanders who are in the audience may want to think about their plans for August 3rd…
Hasbro has announced that they are holding a charity screening of G.I. Joe: The Rise of COBRA to interested parties who pay a $75 donation to Hasbro Children’s Hospital…the full press release (including how to order) is after the jump.
Phil over at JoeReloaded comes through again, this time with a five-page preview for the upcoming third issue of the G.I. Joe: The Rise of COBRA movie adaptation.
BE WARNED! There are major spoilers in this 5-page preview! As such, I’m posting the actual images after the “jump”, or you can also check them out here.
I will say, I enjoyed the first issue of the adaptation, and the second two are looking really good as well. I’ve already been spoiled on the events in the film, but the way IDW is fleshing them out in comic form works really nicely.
The first arc of G.I. Joe: Origins has come and gone, and with the release of the fifth issue yesterday we apparently get some resolution and some progression into the formation of the G.I. Joe team. A couple of reviews have already hit the web, you can check them out below:
I wasn’t too high on this series when it first kicked off, but each issue has been an improvement over the last, and I really look forward to seeing how it all wraps up in Issue #5.
GameSpy.com has posted four new screenshots from the upcoming Rise of COBRA video game for Playstation3. You can check out the full article here, and also view the mirrored images below.

Personally I think these screenshots look a LOT more refined and polished than some of the previous ones. We’ll see how it looks in hand, but I for one will be pre-ordering this one and picking it up on launch day. My expectations aren’t real high, but any opportunity to dive into this new universe is one that I will definitely take!
Not sure if this has been reported yet, but for anyone interested (who doesn’t have retail establishments nearby) may want to check out HasbroToyShop for the new Rise of COBRA merchandise. They have a good chunk of stuff from the first two waves available, and with gijoe10 you can save 10%! If you buy enough stuff, that could easily cancel out the shipping charges.
