G.I. Joe: COBRA II Issue #3 already getting some love

Today is the official release day for G.I. Joe: Cobra II, Issue #3 (which becomes an ongoing series with Issue #5!), but already some sites are out there reviewing the latest installment, and early word on the street is damn good as expected.  Check out the reviews below, and once I get my hands on it (hopefully today or tomorrow) I’ll post some of my own thoughts as well.
Be warned, these reviews most likely contain spoilers!

Hasbro full rundown of Q & A answers

As part of the new Q & A process, Hasbro PR sends each site a full rundown of every question and answer sent to every site, and for your convenience, I’m mirrored the entire list below.  It saves some time from hitting every different site, even with the GeneralsJoes easy to navigate Q & A Page.  There are actually some decent answers this time around…  Click the “Read the rest of this entry” link below to see the full list.

G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra nominated for MTV Movie Awards

Yeah, I know, not exactly the Oscars, but the MTV Movie Awards has listed their nominations, and G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra has 6 of them.  The nominations are below:

Hmmm…well, we all know the MTV Movie Awards are cheese-worthy and are more for the spectacle than the actual awards…and any award that considers Channing Tatum for anything based on his role in The Rise of Cobra doesn’t get much confidence from me.

Kick Ass Custom – Pursuit of Cobra Sandstorm

Long time buddy of mine Kevin has a special talent…  he makes customs that are pulled straight from my sub-conscious.  He doesn’t go hogwild on the sculpting or alterations, but every change he makes, every paint app is nearly production quality.
So, when he showed me his latest custom, of the now destined to be unreleased Sandstorm, I immediately loved it.  He obviously used the Target exclusive as a minor influence…but only minor.  Using Zartan’s parts, Reactive Armor Duke, and some insane camouflage painting skills, Sandstorm has now come to life.
