Hasbro: G.I. Joe Retaliation Toys Fully Revealed|
As the G.I. Joe: Retaliation 3 3/4" action figure collection rolls out, collectors should be on the look out for figures based on Duke, Cobra Commander, Roadblock, Snake Eyes, Storm Shadow, Red Ninja, Cobra Trooper, G.I. Joe Trooper, and Zartan. After this assortment, we'll see Flint, Lady Jaye, Firefly, as well as many off camera Joes.
This year's San Diego Comic-Con exclusive will follow the tradition set over the last few years with two versions of the figure made available. This year, the figure is based on Kim Arashikage, and she'll be available in a red, classic Jinx costume, as well as a white costume. In addition, with the success of the G.I. Joe Transformers vehicle last year, Hasbro is offering up a Shockwave H.I.S.S. Tank. You can count on all three selling out within the first couple of days of this summer's SDCC.
G.I. Joe Retaliation will initially feature two Battle Sets, which will each feature three figures. The Ninja Showdown pits Snake Eyes against Storm Shadow and one of his Cobra ninja flunkies and the Ninja Dojo Battle features a camo painted version of Roadblock, Beachhead, and a blue ninja.
No G.I. Joe collection is complete without a slew of vehicles, and the Retaliation collection will be no exception to the rule. There are the 3 3/4-Inch Vehicles collections, all set at different sizes and price points. The Alpha assortment will initially include Wheel Blaster Bike with Firefly, Ninja Speed Cycle with Snake Eyes, Road Retaliator with Flint. The Bravo collection will include Ninja Commando 4x4 with Snake Eyes, G.I. Joe Tread Ripper Tank with Clutch, and Cobra FangBoat with Swamp Viper. The Delta collection will feature H.I.S.S. Tank with driver, Ghost Hawk II with Duke, and Ninja Combat Cruiser with driver.
G.I. Joe: Retaliation line will feature a larger scale figures collection called Battlers. for the April release, collectors should be able to find one based on Snake Eyes and another based on Roadblock.
Keeping in mind that toys are for kids. No, really, they are. Hard to believe, we know... Hasbro won't be disappointed children who want to retaliate with their large collection of Role Playing toys. The series will include the G.I. Joe Special Ops Mask, the Snake Eyes Ninja Mask, the Storm Shadow Ninja Mask, Snake Eyes Ninja Gear, G.I. Joe Ninja-Chucks, Battle Kata Blaster, Blade of Justice, and the Ninja Commando Blaster. Seems to us that there may be some ninja action in this film...
