Maybe these went up yesterday along with the story by USA Today, but somehow I missed it? Either that, or they just went live today and WOW!! Spectactular. If the concept art is any indication whatsoever of the kind of character design we’ll be getting, this game may already have knocked aside Avengers Alliance as my current addiction.
You can hit up the SyFy site and the Facebook Page to check out a wealth of concept art, and even sign up to play the Beta when it becomes available. So cool! Check out some mirrored images below from the SyFy gallery.
Guys. TRUBBLE BUBBLES. Low Light. AGH!!

This looks SO COOL. If this is truly a tactics game along the lines of Final Fantasy Tactics, or G.I. Joe: Renegades Tactics, then I will be so in love with this. Very cool.
Frustration from the glut of merchandise clogging retail pegs and blocking the release of subsequent waves of highly-anticipated figures seemed to be the theme of 2011. When new G.I. Joe figures finally made their way into our collections, the countless accessories, innovations in articulation, and intricately-detailed sculpts made the class of 2011 among the best we’ve ever seen in the 25th Anniversary-style era. Hasbro surprised with the release of the Sky Striker as part of the 30th Anniversary line, disappointed with the cancellation of the G.I. Joe: Renegades animated series, and energized with the trailer for the live-action movie sequel, G.I. Joe: Retaliation. Not to be outdone, licensees such as IDW Publishing and Sideshow Collectibles continued to impress with their offerings of G.I. Joe merchandise, an indication of the strength of the G.I. Joe brand. In retrospect of 2011, A Real American Hero, Generals Joes and The Terror Drome team up to bring you the best of G.I. Joe 2011.

Rejoice, G.I. Joe fans! DiC has arrived!
Yes, the infamous DiC series of G.I. Joe animation is widely panned from a critical perspective, and doesn’t match up with the Sunbow stuff, but the fact remains those of us who are long time Joe fans have been without a reliable source of DiC animation ever since it debuted. And yes, even though it has its share of quirks, there is some indelible charm with DiC’s offerings, even if it’s just smiling at all the 90’s characters who fans have rarely seen on their TV screens.
Well, Shout! Factory has now released Season 1 from the DiC era and it is marvelously goofy. I’m not sure what’s better, watching Sandstorm knock over a rock mountain that takes out a Desert Scorpion, or later in that episode, watching Sandstorm again hang-gliding from the roof of a Cobra castle.
Yes, Sandstorm as in Dusty’s coyote.
Check out my review of the DiC Season 1 DVD set right here. Priced very affordably at $19.99, it’s worth your time, goofy or not.
Well, if a week can be considered a pre-order, anyway.
Thanks to GeneralsJoes reader m6d for passing along word that Hasbro Toy Shop now has Pursuit of Cobra Wave 4 listed as “coming soon”. You can order them now, and they will arrive anywhere from 2/1 through 2/14 depending on your shipping choice. Check out the links below:
Go get ’em!
I’ve received some corrected information in regards to my Wave 4 Pursuit of Cobra reviews from various different sources, so I just wanted to say “thanks”! and point out the added info.
In my review of the Wave 4 Low Light I indicated that he had new arms. This is NOT the case. His arms are, by and large, the arms from the PoC Jungle-Viper, but the forearm pegs of the Jungle Viper have been replaced by new forearm pads with the smooth texture.
Also, I received some complaints about the lack of a goggled picture of Low Light, which for some reason I forgot to include in the review. Well, it’s now been posted, so check out the review again, or just check out the image below.
