You all know the routine. AdultSwim.com has posted the latest two episodes of G.I. Joe: Resolute! And of course, with Adult Swim comes the normal YouTube greatness:
One day prior to its official release, Shin Densetsu at HissTank.com has posted a review of G.I. Joe: Origins #3. Check it out here!
EDIT: Thanks to Todd and Jeff for their comments, apparently this issue DOES NOT come out today. A quick check to Den Tipton’s blog confirms official release is next Wednesday, April 29th. Sorry for any confusion!
Oh. My. God.
Yeah… if this is what’s going to happen every time I take a day off to actually get some work done, I’m going to take a whole lot more days off! Good grief, the floodgates opened. I’m not even sure where to start.
First and foremost, Asia blew the doors open with a sudden outpouring of photographs of figures never seen before. Pretty ironic that we got some Wal-Mart listings yesterday, and now all of a sudden these pictures all start flying over the Pacific. Whatever the reasoning is, there are a ton of great pics of great new product at a bunch of different places. You enterpising Joe fans that you are have probably checked them out already, but here are the links anyway:
Hasbro PR has sent along an official press release outlining their licensing deal with Shout! Factory. Click on the full story link below to read the whole thing soup-to-nuts.
TVShowsonDVD has debuted a possible picture of the cover art for the upcoming Shout! Factory Season 1 part 1 DVD set being released this summer to coincide with the theatrical release of G.I. Joe: The Rise of COBRA.
More important than even that, though, is an article from homemediamagazine.com who spoke with Garson Foos, President of Shout! Factory. One quote in particular should make folks pretty happy:
“Foos said Shout! Factory would follow the release with special complete-series sets of “The Transformers” and “G.I. Joe” later this summer. In the case of “G.I. Joe,” Rhino lost the rights before completing its release slate, which means many of the episodes will finally be released for the first time.”
So, it sounds like we may not have to hunt down several different half-season sets. Very cool.
