Royal Purple website features some great information on Rise of COBRA vehicles

I think this website for the Royal Purple/G.I. Joe: The Rise of COBRA promotion has been up for a while, but for some reason, we’re just noticing the vehicles section.  But this vehicle section is absolutely bad ass.  It has some great images and details for the vehicles featured in the film, many of which we haven’t heard of before!  I’ve mirrored the images below for the following vehicles:

  • Brawler – An innocuous looking van on the outside, with high tech surveillance and weapons systems on the inside
  • Attack Helicopter – No name, just looks like a generic military assault copter
  • Howler – The VTOL troop transport that carries the Joe team through the air
  • RHINO – An armored Humvee looking thing
  • Rockslide – Familiar snowmobile attack vehicle that we’ve seen in toy form already
  • Scarab – The “Steel Crusher” going by its original name
  • Spyder – A very futuristic looking motorcycle (that looks a lot cooler than the upcoming “Snarler”)

The vehicles page can be found here with some nice details on these various weapons of war, and again, all images are mirrored below.

New G.I. Joe: The Rise of COBRA toy commercial now online!

I’ve heard mention around the ‘net of a new toy commercial for the G.I. Joe: The Rise of COBRA action figures and vehicles, but no one seemed able to provide a link to actual viewable video.  Well, that’s all changed!  Thanks to the guys over at The Terror Drome for pointing out that this brand-spanking new toy commercial is now posted up on YouTube!  Check out the embedded coolness below:

Some great reviews for the new G.I. Joe: The Rise of COBRA figures and vehicles

I’ve sung the praises of the LastBestAngryMan Toy Review blog in these pages before, but I must repeat myself.

LBAM has scored a bevy of the initial releases for the Rise of COBRA toys, including the Steel Crusher, Gunship, and a helping of Wave 1.  He’s reviewed them all in typical fashion right here.

Some very cool pictures and interesting insight as always.
