Thanks to Kenny, who reminded me to get my DVR rolling tonight, I managed to get a promo for next week’s episode of G.I. Joe: Renegades. Episode 8 supposedly will introduce Scrap Iron. The full episode description as found on my Renegades SuperSite is as follows:
“Scrap-Iron kidnaps Tunnel Rat and uses him to test a weaponized exo-suit. Roadblock attempts a rescue by allowing himself to be kidnapped as well.”
From a conceptual standpoint, these Exo-Suits remind me a lot of the SNAKE Armor from the Marvel days. Robotic suits of armor that control the user’s mind…very interesting. Check out the embedded video below.
It’s nice to at least have 30 seconds of Renegades goodness tonight. I think I’m going to have withdrawls…
For many of us today was a vacation day, but the G.I. Joe Collectors’ Club has continued posting their images for the upcoming 2011 G.I. Joe Collectors Convention exclusive figures! The last one in line was Captain Claymore (of course, the one I’ve been looking forward to the most).
He is now up and posted and features all sorts of great features:
25th Anniverary Style Action Figure
Based on Classic TRU Exclusive Character
NEW Headsculpt and NEW Camo Helmet
Includes Stand, Machine Gun w/ bi-pod, Uzi, Removable Flashlight and Backpack
So a new head sculpt and a new camouflage helmet? Could this mean a Footloose is in the works? I certainly wouldn’t be surprised. The Club went with a black shirt it looks like, with the green tactical vest over it and the familiar yellow camouflage pants. I like, though I would have loved to have green camouflage to match Wet Suit and/or Leatherneck. Still, a great looking figure. For the most part, it looks like Outback from the neck down, with the new head. Pretty cool. Check out the images below.
