More information emerges about G.I. Joe: Renegades launch date and writing staff

Keep in mind, I’m taking some of this information with a grain of salt, because the language within the interview is somewhat unclear.  But according to an interview with Greg Johnson at 411Mania, there is a possibility that G.I. Joe: Renegades might air early November…perhaps even the 10th.
Honestly, I’m not sure that’s entirely accurate.  There’s no telling when this interview was done (though it was only released yesterday) but Mr. Johnson specifically mentioning the 10th appears to me to be more related to the debut of The Hub rather than Renegades specifically.  We’ll see.
To me, the better information is that Greg Johnson is involved in the first place.  This guy is an action animation powerhouse, who has been involved in a wealth of fantastic animation.  This is his resume:

  • Beast Wars
  • X-Men: Evolution
  • Ultimate Avengers & Ultimate Avengers II
  • Invincible Iron Man
  • Dr. Strange
  • Wolverine and the X-Men

So yeah, pretty much every Marvel related animation release over the past several years has been written by Greg Johnson.  Just seeing Beast Wars, X-Men: Evolution, and Wolverine and the X-Men on this list is freaking AWESOME to me.  Three of my favorite animated series over the past several years.  Great news.
Another little tidbit of information comes from  The information they reveal mentions G.I. Joe: Renegades being a part of the “Weekend” schedule.

Deltora Quest
Men in Black
G.I. Joe Renegades
Batman Beyond
Hub Family Movie Night”

G.I. Joe Renegades
Batman Beyond
Men in Black…”

Take this all with a grain of salt, of course, but as we get closer to November hopefully the picture will start clarifying.

Sideshow Collectibles Desert Weapons Cache w/ Sandstorm revealed!

We caught a glimpse of it during the announcement of the 12″ Dusty figure, and now it has been officially announced by Sideshow Collectibles.  To go along with the Recon at Waypoint, Sideshow is releasing a new environment, the Desert Weapons Cache w/ Sandstorm.
Of course, what has really caught my eye is the desert themed Cobra Trooper in the set as well.  Very cool.
