Hasbro Fan Media Event – GI Joe Presentation


 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’.

 Wave 1


Snake Eyes

Cobra Commander (A really sick redesign that I can’t wait to see in the film)


Storm Shadow

Cobra Trooper

(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).
