As if G.I. Joe: Retaliation wasn’t enough, we’ve got the upcoming social media G.I. Joe: Special Ops online game that is looking more out of this world with every reveal! Today we’re introduced to the Special Ops version of Roadblock, Lifeline, Buzzer, Dr. Mindbender, the Cobra Stun and G.I. Joe: Wolverine, and things are looking awesome. Very much a vintage aesthetic, with some neat 30th Anniversary twists.
Lifeline is clearly based on the way the 30th Anniversary figure looks, with those unique differences from the classic version. Roadblock, on the other hand, is looking like his old school Tiger Force version. Pretty awesome.
Check out the latest details at the Special Ops website on SyFy.com, and I’ve mirrored some nice images below. I mean, doesn’t it seem like we’ve been waiting for some kind of game like this forever? When have we gotten such character and vehicle-accurate renders for any kind of video game? I’m getting pretty excited to check this out, just in case you couldn’t tell. I’ve mirrored darn near every image we’ve seen so far, check out the most recent ones on the end.

Thanks to many different folks who passed this along. Not sure how long they’ll last, so move quick.

More great press coming out of Cinemacon last week, this time from Slashfilm, who have posted a very extensive interview with Jon Chu. While there aren’t a ton of details or new spoilers revealed throughout this particular piece, they have a great discussion about G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra and what was good and what potentially went wrong with that film.
Jon Chu has a terrific perspective on the Rise Of Cobra, and how the property emerged from that Hollywood infused production. I found it really interesting to read about his perspective on the 80’s universe and how that works with the whole “original Joe” idea with Bruce Willis.
Check out this great interview over on Slashfilm right here. It’s some good stuff.
Thanks to Jay from ENewsI for the heads up.
Wow, it’s hard to believe that it’s been a full year since the What’s on Joe Mind podcast launched, but the guys certainly know how to celebrate. Episode #52 features not just an interview with Michael Bell to celebrate, but we also opened our phone lines to all of our fans! For over three hours we had a constant stream of callers dialing in to shoot the breeze, ask questions, and just generally have some fun.
Not only that, but we had some old friends stop by and hang out on the show for a little while, which was a really fun, awesome experience.
I just happened to be running a little late for this one, but I should pop up about an hour into the episode, and eventually I don’t sound like I’m talking in a trash can. Listen to this landmark 1 year anniversary episode on Podbean.com, or check it out via the embedded player below. As always, the show notes will be after the jump.
Apparently G.I. Joe: Retaliation director Jon Chu is making the rounds, as he has spoken with the folks at Bleeding Cool about the politics and satire of the upcoming G.I. Joe film sequel. The discussion focuses mostly on the amount of satire within the film, which is something that script writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick excel in.
But the most interesting part of the article mentions that we should keep our eyes on Bleeding Cool as they plan on talking a lot about the “ambitious action scene centrepiece”, which sounds like something we should all look forward to!
