Big G.I. Joe: Renegades News – Character Bio's Revealed!

As I suspected in an earlier post, the Hub media event today did yield some very juicy tidbits from the G.I. Joe: Renegades universe…namely bio’s of pretty much the entirety of the main cast of characters from both sides!  Not only do we get some more details on the characters we know, but we find out a bit about some folks we hadn’t heard of before.  Very cool.
Click the “Read the Rest of this Entry” link below for the full details, and expect this all to be transcribed to the Renegades SuperPage swiftly.

G.I. Joe: Renegades and Transformers: Prime the main focus of Hub Programming

Even now, while there’s a Corporate Lunch going on with several Hasbro and Hub execs, we have some information from a Webcast that was broadcast revealing information about The Hub and the focus of their programming.  Big thanks to the guys over at TFW2005 who have gathered a bunch of this information together for our consumption.  Their focus is obviously on the Transformers end of it, but I’m currently listening to the webcast now to try and get information gathered for G.I. Joe: Renegades, and will present whatever I find right here.
At this point, the following information has been gleaned from TFW2005:

  • G.I. Joe: Renegades will air in an afternoon “block” with Transformers: Prime at 3:00pm.
  • The Hub website is in production, and will apparently have a full “launch” September 27th with a wealth of added content
  • G.I. Joe: Renegades and Transformers: Prime are the main focus of Hub production and programming

Apparently there were also video clips shown, sound clips, and other details that are unavailable through the webcast, but it’s hypothosized that it’s mostly the same as what we’ve seen.
If there are more details buried in the webcast, I’ll try and pull ’em out for everyone.

When it rains, it pours… BBTS receiving PoC Alpha vehicles Wave 2!

Wow.  Anyone complaining about a lack of Joe product earlier in the year certainly should be happy now.  I no longer got reviews posted for Pursuit of Cobra Wave 1, then Wave 2 hit retail, then the Wave 2 Bravo vehicles hit online stores, and now, I’ve received confirmation from BBTS that my pre-order for the second wave of Alpha vehicles has arrived in their warehouse!  In fact, they’ve listed the set of two vehicles as in stock now.
This includes the awesome looking Ice Cutter w/ Snow Serpent Officer as well as the AWE Striker with Night Fox.  Really looking forward to getting these in hand.  I couldn’t care less about the Striker itself, but Night Fox looks pretty awesome.  And the Ice Cutter really looks like a winner all around.
Keep your eyes open!

Potential information about The Hub or G.I. Joe: Renegades revealed today?

No guarantees, but the Twitter Page for the Hub has posted the following information:

“In anticipation of 10.10.10, we’re live-tweeting our media lunch today feat. Margaret Loesch, President & CEO of The Hub. Stay tuned!”

I’ll be keeping a close eye on their Twitter feed to see if anything of consequence is talked about.  10-10 is coming up quick, let’s hope things get moving.
