Mere days after the unreleased Training Snake Eyes was shown on JoeIntel, test shot maestro Gyre-Viper at HissTank.com has shown some pictures of the unreleased “Iron Klaw Trooper” that was initially slated to come with another wave of Comic Packs before the line shifted to a movie theme. Check out the mirrored images below.

This… is awesome. From what I’ve seen there hasn’t been much unreleased stuff that has really made me sad that it won’t make it to retail. Resolute stuff aside of course (which looks to be coming in a boxed set in 2010). But this Iron Klaw Trooper? Damn, man. I love it. I was a big fan of the Extreme universe, but the figures were horrible, it’s freaking great to see those characters worked into the Anniversary line, even with just a new head, beret, weapon, and webgear. The base figure looks to be an Iron Grenadier Destro. Regardless of all this, the figure is very cool, and I hope Hasbro finds some way to work this tooling into the Pursuit of COBRA line. I really love the face sculpt and skull-themed webgear. Very cool figure.
He also showcased some images from the upcoming Pursuit of COBRA Arctic Destro, which is another pretty neat one. Those ice-cased accessories are pretty cool and the sculpt is great. Check out those images below.
Okay, Resolute has aired in its entirety both through adultswim.com and on the station itself last night. It promises to be fully online tomorrow, so show your support by watching it over and over again! Now while I think the Resolute concept and the look of the show was pretty much my favorite rendition of G.I. Joe to date, it wasn’t perfect. I’ll start off with the ten things I didn’t love, but have no fears, there will be an extensive list of things I loved as well. 🙂
Right on schedule, AdultSwim.com has posted the latest two episodes of Resolute, episodes 7 & 8. As always check them out at the Resolute video page here.
I am a bit curious, because the site says episodes 9 & 10 will be shown tomorrow, but I was under the impression that the last part wouldn’t air until it was aired on television…also thought the last part was a 10 minute finale. Guess we’ll find out. As far as I know, these aren’t YouTube’d yet, but I’m sure it’s just a matter of time.
EDIT: Okay, I went back through my notes (yes I have notes from Joe conventions on my computer…I realize that’s sad), and the initial report was 10 5-minute episodes with a 10 minute finale for a total of 60 minutes. So not only does that mean we get two more episodes tomorrow night, it means there are essentially two MORE episodes after that! W00t! 🙂
We’re getting close to the finale…I’m excited, but bummed at the same time. This has been an awesome ride, I don’t want it to end! I know full well Hasbro has geared up to move on to the film stuff, I just hope this Resolute universe doesn’t just end up floating away. It’s too cool to be treated like that. We’ll see, I guess.
