I know it’s been a really long time coming, but I finally am ready to announce the two winners of the Ultimate Guide to G.I. Joe (2nd Edition) contest that I ran a little ways back. There were so many great entries that it was really tough to choose the primary winner based on the submitted articles. But I’m happy to announce that the winner of the “Which Era is your Favorite” entry is: Scott Nacey!
He submitted a great essay about the Real American Hero line, and really broke down each era and subset of G.I. Joe very nicely. I will be posting his great article next week.
In second place was an email that was chosen randomly, who will also get a copy of the Ultimate Guide to G.I. Joe (2nd Edition), and to choose that winner, I required some assistance…
So, the winner of the second copy is… James Strickland! I will be notifying the winners via email shortly to get mailing addresses, etc… I want to thank everyone who submitted articles and entries to GeneralsJoes’ first contest. Congratulations to the winners!
To any folks who didn’t win, it’s still available for a great price at Amazon.com!

dawg99 over at HissTank.com has posted a nice image of all four of the upcoming Pursuit of Cobra mini-vehicle sets mint in their boxes…and I’m really surprised. The packaging is surprisingly nice! For the record, this appears to be the breakdown:
Air Assault Glider w/ Capt. Ace (Arctic Assault)
RAM Cycle w/ Sandstorm (Desert Battle)
Jungle Terror Twin Battle Gun w/ Range-Viper (Jungle Assault)
COBRA Flight Pod w/ Elite-Viper (City Strike)
I’m amazed that they managed to get that Whirlwind shoe-horned into that tiny box…impressive. If these sell for the same price as current versions, I’ll buy a few of those if I can find ’em. Check out the image below.
