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.

No scattered reviews this time around…we’re diving right into the whole assortment!
My G.I. Joe: Pursuit of Cobra Wave 4 figures arrived very late Friday evening, and I spent several hours this past weekend diving right into reviews. I know I’ve been accused of hyperbole in the past, but I will say without hesitation that these four figures are among the coolest figures in the entire run of the Pursuit of Cobra line, and with a toyline like this one, that is really saying something.
These figures are awesome. Simply awesome. Check out the Pursuit of Cobra Review Page or hit the links below directly:
These are four excellent figures. It really makes me look forward to seeing what Hasbro has up their sleeves for 2011. Based on how much they’ve improved over the past 12 months, I can only imagine what greatness we have in store for us over the next 12.
Just arrived at SmallJoes, the fourth wave of G.I. Joe: The Pursuit of Cobra! Every one of these figures is great, so I highly recommend picking up the set of four. A great price and there are no bad figures here.

My figures should be arriving in my mailbox today. Can’t wait to tear into these things and get reviews posted! Keep your eyes on my Pursuit of Cobra Review Page to see when the reviews get posted!
Many folks have been wondering exactly what Shadow Tracker looks like underneath that mask, but only Twink Viper has actually buckled down and yanked it off. Unfortunately he ended up ruining the figure in the process, but check out the fruits of his labor below:

I know in past test shots, we’ve just seen a skull underneath there, so this certainly looks like something new, though not necessarily any more pleasant. Here’s a lesson to ya, kids…keep his mask on. Thanks to Twink Viper for doing the deed and posting it up on Hiss Tank.
