Danger Girl was a comic book in the late 90's. It was a combination of James Bond and Indiana Jones. The art was by J. Scott Campbell who created Gen13 and did those Devil's Due GI Joe covers.

I try to stick with Cobra to save money but these issues look amazing. Particularly the Tommy Lee Edwards cover.

Posters for the upcoming movie. The Bruce Willis one doesn't seem like it's for the GI Joe movie but I'll take what I can get. Cobra Commander and Snake-Eyes look great!

Most are.

I understand inflation and the rising cost of print but it can get expensive at times.

I stopped at a Tuesday Morning, since I've learned the only real places to find Joe stuff are the second market stores like Ross and such, and I found a RoC Polar Sharc. The figure it comes with looks pretty lame, but I'm pretty happy about this find.

There are going to be some new mold figures coming to dollar stores soon. Be on the look out.

I think it was back at Christmas time, TJMaxx had a ton of Roc figures, like all the different Storm Shadows and the Baroness and stuff. What new mold figures do you mean, like the PoC ones? Or the newer ones, like the Zombie Vipers?

Like never before seen figures that use existing tooling.

Incredible custom. I know we got the Terrordome but I would've loved a Silent Castle playset.

Not crazy about the new poster, it looks like a Photoshopped collage of the previous posters.

However, I do like the spray paint look of the logo.

Apparently the real reason of the delay is that they're shooting more scenes with Channing Tatum after testing so well and becoming a star this year.

I'm curious what they can add and change within 9 months.

Another commentor mentions that this would be the second GI Joe film to have Duke die and then changed in post production :)

It's not 100% certain he'll live. It seems like they want to develop the Roadblock/Duke relationship further.

Huh. I knew that Adrianne Palicki was Wonder Woman in that TV pilot but didn't realize D.J. Cotrona was Superman from the unproduced Justice League movie.
