See, THIS is why fans of a property should be excited about a “movie year” even if they’re not necessarily excited about the movie. When G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra hit theaters, obviously not many folks enjoyed it, but what they didn’t really understand was that the movie release paved the way for a lot of other cool things they may not have gotten otherwise (like G.I. Joe: Resolute, for instance).
Looks like the same could be true this summer! Over on his blog, Disciples of Boltax, Jim Sorenson reveals that he is currently working on a G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero animation model book, with hopes to release it this summer. He reveals that there has been an unusually large number of animation model sheets out there, and seems enthusiastic and optimistic that the book will be chock full of cool things for Joe fans to enjoy.
Transformers fans will likely recognize Sorenson from his work on the various Transformers AllSpark Almanacs and Addendums, and if we get the same attention to detail and presentation as those books offer, this should be a great one to add to your G.I. Joe library!
Check out the blog right here, and also you European fans, Jim Sorenson will be attending Roll Out Roll Call 3, so hit him up there and find out the skinny on his upcoming book. I’m looking forward to it!
I ran a bit behind last week getting the IDW reviews posted, but I don’t intend to make that mistake this week, especially as Cobra Command continues on and we finally get at least a little bit of interaction between Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow.
I’m the last person to complain about a lack of ninja conflict within the G.I. Joe universe, but IDW has really been dragging out the whole Snake Eyes/Storm Shadow dynamic. Apparently they’re moving closer to a resolution here as Snake Eyes wades neck deep into Red Ninja territory.

I know I’ve already linked up the G.I. Joe: Retaliation Movie SuperPage, but I just wanted folks to know that it’s all up to date with all trailers and all screen caps or images that I’ve gathered together so far.
I also just added the G.I. Joe: Retaliation Toys SuperPage, collecting all of the images that we’ve received from Hasbro thus far. I didn’t include the oversized “Ninja Commando” figures or the Role Playing stuff, but all of the 4″ related stuff is there. If there are any major changes you want to see or any alterations that should be made, feel free to let me know. Check out the links below to check them out.
