Nightly News recap – Upcoming figure pictures flood the Internet

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:

  • (Resolute Roadblock, Destro, and Wild Bill)
  • The TerrorDrome (A whole lot more including the aforementioned ones, plus a bunch of figures from apparent Wal-Mart 2-packs and vehicle drivers)
  • (the same pic batch as the TerrorDrome ones above)

Shout! Factory DVD cover art and details about complete SERIES SETS!

joeseason1TVShowsonDVD 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 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.
