Hasbro Fan Media Event – GI Joe Presentation
SCROLL DOWN FOR THE GALLERY!
The presentation began with a showing of the trailer for GI Joe Retaliation. A trailer I believe we featured on this site. All things being equal, I think that might have actually been the first time I’ve seen that trailer in it’s entirety with audio. I was impressed.
On to the toys. The movie hits June 29, 2012, and the movie line hits shelves in June 2012 with over 50 figures, 4 convention exclusives (includes figures sold with vehicles), and 9 vehicles with 1 additional con exclusive.
Hasbro will feature a leaner line than was put out with the Rise of Cobra. With the line we will get basic figures, multi-packs a few things that they aren’t showing and some ‘account exclusives’.
Cobra Commander (A really sick redesign that I can’t wait to see in the film)
GI Joe Trooper
Wave 2 – July
Battle Kata Roadblock
(Battle Kata is a way of fighting that has knuckles / grip pieces that allows the fighter to flow through a fight, grab guns off chest to knuckles, pop guns off knuckles and plug into sword hilt and just keep fighting).
Ninja Duel Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow (with new ankle articulation) (Storm Shadow based on 80’s camo Storm Shadow).
Wave 3 – August
