G.I. Joe "Bonus Wave" Wave 12 Pre-Orders

Over at Entertainment Earth, wave 12 (the "bonus wave," a euphemism for a repaint wave) is coming soon! This case actually has a pretty good mix, and a couple of figures which qualify as new characters. Click here to see the breakdown, which includes a carded Tripwire, Cobra Commander, Ripper, Crimson Python Patrol Guard, red logo Cobra Trooper, Storm Shadow, and two new Cobra Divers.

G.I. Joe Crimson, Greenshirt Exclusive Sets Out

The new Toys "R" Us exclusive Battle Packs have been spotted in Los Angeles. Choose from the Crimson Guard (4 guards and a commander) or Firefly vs. Greenshirts. Each pack is $24.99 and has what I consider to be some of the finest packaging out of Hasbro for this line yet.

New G.I. Joe Club Exclusives Revealed

Because fans demanded it, the club will be getting 7 exclusive figures based on the aborted final wave of direct-to-consumer figures from a few years ago. Some are, anyway-- others like Python Patrol Copperhead are new. Also available are 2006-style Airtight, Outback, Lt. Falcon, Munitia, and new Troopers and Vipers. Seeing how insanely popular the 25th Anniversary line has been, we're quite surprised to see these coming.

Also new and exciting: the 2009 club freebies! 12-inch fans can get what they're calling a "Black Talking Commander," while 3 3/4-inch fans can get a super-cool Destro's Iron Grenadier-deco version of Undertow. Undertow, of course, being one of the finest figures Hasbro ever sculpted. Get one.

G.I. Joe 2008, Exclusive Images

The fine fellows of got their mitts on TONS of official Hasbro images of new, upcoming products.

Apparently there's going to be an Invisible Variant of Wraith, kind of annoying, but what are you going to do. We very much like the Serpentor DVD Set for a variety of reasons. Oh, and this Ultimate Battle Pack looks real nice too. What a great year!
