That Covert Operations Scarlett? I think I’m sold…

Okay, I wasn’t going to grab the Covert Operations Scarlett…I have the Desert Ambush version in her Reactive Armor (with the MUCH better head) so I felt no reason to get the one in her cammie jammies…well, until I saw some of Alexx’s damn pictures.  He posted them in his usual spot on JoeBattleLines, and now I think I’m sold on this figure.

It’s not just the head swap either (though that definitely helps).  It’s the range of motion, the accessories…it’s all really nicely done, even for a fairly dull BDU clad figure.  I might just have to grab this one.

Nine new images from The Rise of COBRA? Not quite…but there is one.

Several online sites are reporting that Paramount has sent them nine new images from the upcoming G.I. Joe: The Rise of COBRA, however that’s not really the case from what I’ve seen.  The images look mostly recycled, with really the only new one being of Snake Eyes vs. Storm Shadow sword-fighting.

Still, just for the sake of being certain, I’ve mirrored all of the “new” images below, courtesy of

Fans of Transformers and G.I. Joe will be able to experience the two great tastes that taste great together all in one panel.  IDW has announced that they will be holding a “G.I. Joe/Transformers Crossover” panel at SDCC, Friday at noon.  Special guests Robert Atkins, Flint Dille, and Mike Costa will be available for info and questions!

So does this mean that there will actually be a crossover comic happening?  Or are they just tying both properties together into one panel?  Time will tell…

Strike First – With the speed of Norton!

In what can only be described as one of the more bizarre licensing deals I’ve seen recently, G.I. Joe: The Rise of COBRA and Norton Antivirus (by Symantec) have teamed up in a new campaign to sell Norton Antivirus software.  It’s got a spiffy Flash intro and lots of Snake Eyes in your face.
