Anyone who pre-ordered the Hot Toys 12″ G.I. Joe: Retaliation Roadblock figure has likely already gotten their shipping notice, but if you haven’t for some reason, expect it soon! Mine is slated to arrive on Thursday, and I’m pretty fired up for it.
Meanwhile, HotToys.com has posted a plethora of new images of the upcoming figure, and even a YouTube video showing how to change his uniform! Anyone who has messed with these intricate 12″ figures before knows the challenge involved in doing that, so check it out, it might be helpful.

Among many other things…
Quite awhile ago, we had the unique opportunity to interview a couple of the guys from the Hot Toys Podcast, and while it took us a little while to get this posted (apologies Jim and Eamon) with G.I. Joe: Retaliation Roadblock on the precipice of release, it seems apt to get this out there now.
Along with talking with those fine folks, we cover all of the G.I. Joe news and information, and even touch on the big “NO JOES in 2014” topic that seems to be rearing it’s ugly head over the past week.
As always, hit up Podbean or check out the embedded player below, and show notes are after the jump.
Throughout the release process, Hot Toys typically releases a series of images taken by bloggers who have had direct access to their action figure releases, and this holds true with their upcoming G.I. Joe: Retaliation Roadblock figure release. The Hot Toys Facebook page has unloaded with well over seventy images of G.I. Joe: Retaliation Roadblock and some of these pictures are blowing me away.
This figure, without a doubt, looks to be the flagship of the Hot Toys G.I. Joe: Retaliation line, with layered body armor, different shirts, a fully functional Battle Kata weapons system, as well as the M249 SAW and deadly movie accurate uniform. The face sculpt does look just a bit hit or miss in my opinion, but soup to nuts this representation of Roadblock is spectacular.

It’s like a little miniature Lee Byung-Hun is staring into my soul.
Thanks to Toy News International for passing along word that details and images are now available for the upcoming G.I. Joe: Retaliation Storm Shadow figure from Hot Toys! Just like Snake Eyes, this is one incredible, movie-accurate version of the infamous Arashikage ninja. He looks SHARP.

Yes, it’s been a while since we’ve posted an episode of What’s on Joe Mind, but hopefully we’ve made up for it with the length of this one! Clocking in at just over three hours, there’s enough G.I. Joe conversation here to keep any Joe fan satisfied.
We talk to legendary toy expert Mark Bellomo and winner of the What’s on Joe Mind Fantasy Football league (and operator of the awesome GIJoeGraphy site) Dan Uthman.
