Official Press Release and consolidated location for G.I. Joe: Renegades debut on The Hub

Collected all in one spot, the folks at The Hub have notified me that there is one central repository for all of the Renegades info revealed so far…  well apart from my own Renegades Superpage, that is.  And the YouTube Channel…  😉
Regardless, you can check out the central site right here, and the official press release reads as follows:
Premiere Event Includes: Back-to-Back Original Episodes; Behind-the-Scenes Special “Hub Exclusive: ‘G.I. Joe Renegades’”
11.24.2010– LOS ANGELES, Ca. – Coming this Thanksgiving holiday weekend to The Hub, a cable network for kids and their families, is a special two-part premiere of the new half-hour, action-adventure animated series “G.I. Joe Renegades,” Friday, November 26. The Hub is a joint venture of Discovery Communications and Hasbro, Inc., and is available to 60 million U.S. cable and satellite households.
The new animated series, a re-imagining of the popular, original series “G.I. Joe A Real American Hero,” takes viewers back to the origins of the G.I. Joe storyline, in which the world’s most elite renegade force of highly trained specialists are forced to band together to prevent their nemesis, the evil forces of Cobra Industries, from achieving global domination.
“G.I. Joe Renegades” is produced for The Hub by Hasbro Studios. The series is executive produced by Jeff Kline, whose television credits include “Transformers: Prime” and “Jackie Chan Adventures.”
Starring in the series premiere are Lee Majors (“The Six Million Dollar Man”) as “General Abernathy,” and Charlie Adler, the original Cobra Commander from the animated series “G.I. Joe: Resolute,” who reprises his role in the new series. “G.I. Joe Renegades” also includes an all-star lineup of story editors, including Marty Isenberg (“Ben 10,” “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” and “Batman the Animated Series”) and Henry Gilroy (“Star Wars: Clone Wars,” “The Tick” and “Batman the Animated Series.”)

GeneralsJoes reviews the Sideshow Collectibles 12" Duke

Yeah, I’m well aware that this figure has been out for a while, and we’ve gotten Flint and Beachhead since he was released…I’m a bit behind the times.  But when I had an opportunity to pick up a Sideshow Duke, I decided to jump on it, if only for iconic reasons.  At this point I’ve accepted the fact that I’m never going to own every Sideshow figure, it’s just not in the budget.  So, for that reason, I figure I have to be choosy and grab the impactful characters.  Duke certainly fits that bill.
I’ve reviewed a few Sideshow figures already, Snake Eyes and the Cobra Trooper.  I had somewhat mixed results from the two of them, and honestly, Duke totally blows them out of the water.  Great articulation, very nice design, awesome accessories…this one is the total package.
