We’ve known about the exclusive RHINO w/ Rampage for a long time, and many folks have made the connection between the driver and the old school Heavy Metal, but very few really clear images have come out of the RHINO driver to compare. Well, that’s all changed.
Werecat, an administrator over on JoeSightings has posted some excellent images of the recently released Rampage figure. It is astounding how Hasbro can mix and match fairly common parts and come with with such an amazing looking new character. This figure looks terrific, and looks quite close to the vintage counterpart. I’m still not going to pay $55.00 for the RHINO, but now I can at least salivate over Werecat’s pictures for a little while. Check out the images mirrored below.
Sources from within SDCC have reported to JoeBattleLines and GeneralsJoes that there is some great new product being prepped behind the scenes to be displayed in the Hasbro booth at ComicCon! The biggest and best news is the following:

Law & Order

Other new product has been revealed as the very popular “Battle Stations” from back in the vintage days. Some details are fuzzy, but the following battle stations were visible:
Surveillance Port (with movie themed Tele-Viper)
LAW (that appears to come with Tripwire)

Well, the Colosseum online store is what you’re looking for. They’ve got the musical score for sale here, and bundled in with that are four preview clips you can listen to! Very moody, but high quality stuff…not cheesy at all, and very atmospheric.
It was pretty obvious from the first preview we saw that Sideshow’s next 12″ offering was going to be the G.I. Joe Top Sergeant, Duke. Well, Sideshow Collectibles confirms this today with a great look sneak preview!
