For some fans, the Transformers and GI Joe franchises are forever linked in the same lore. With the mulititude of crossovers the two lines have had, its a wonder this hasn't happened sooner.

Thanks to the folks at GeneralJoes.com, we get some new info about soon to be released GI Joe Rise of Cobra figure showcased at GI Joe Con 2009 that look an awful lot like a Transformers Crossover. The only exception to this is that the 3/4 inch scale figure the vehicle is meant for actually combines with it to for a "Robotechesque" body armor.

The Ashiko figure with Cycle Armor is part of the Alpha Vehicle Wave 1 figures set for release sometime in 2010. No word on whether or not there will be more figures like this, but given the immense popularity of the Transformers brand it's definitely a possiblity.

I am normally not a fan of GI-Joe this looks awesome, if the rest of the line looks to be made of the same quality i will start a GI-Joe collection :D

Thanks FG, I first mention that cycle shortly after it's revealed at the panel and get no credit for it. :roll: :P

On a more serious note, with the better photos coming out now, it looks like this upcoming year is going to be pretty sweet.

i think it would be great if the G.I. Joe toys become the head of the Transformers or the Transformers serve as body armor to the G.I. Joe toys.

Hasbro rep asked at second new product panel about the terrordrome from yesterdays pictures.

Stated it is only a diorama piece.

But the big new today so far is Mecha, in late 2010.

Pure Awesome. A cyclone for those of us who don't want to pay $50 for one. 2010 is still going to be an expensive year..

That crossover looks cook, better than that TMNT and batman one. Im on the edge about getting the Rise of Cobra PIT command center is it worth the $100 price tag?

That cycle armor does look cool, as well as several of the upcoming figures. Hasbro has mentioned in a couple of interview that they had planed to do two more playsets before the end of the movie line, but maybe they changed there mind because the pitt playset wasn't selling well. Oh well who can ever guess what a big company has planed things change day to day and month to month. I'm just glad were getting some cool stuff for 2010 since there seems to nothing coming out of transformers side of hasbro, also has anyone found a dragon hawk or crimson hydra since original release at start of august.

Oh you're evil Editor :twisted:

It was your post on the cycle that made me search for it. If someone had posted a link or something to it they MAY have gotten some credit.

Saw both at TRU when I got the pitt commando. Think I'll get the Dragonhawk first.

THEE coolest thing I saw in the pics was the JUNGLE VIPER. Looks like a new age type of soldier...I love how that reflective drape looks like wings. Speaking of wings, I think the new Ripcord with the armor and wings is damn fine.

I am also impressed with the new Zartan, and the all ARCTIC based stuff. The new Recondo and Beachhead look excellent!!!

I actually just bought both from Walmart this past Friday. Grabbed another PITT COmmando too.

And I would be a little miffed about a FLAGG, but a new Terrordrome, I can get into, even though I do have the original.

:BOT: I've finally watch Resolute, which I loved. Great animation and story. Definitely didn't see some major characters' deaths coming, which was a shock.

As for JoeCon, I also love that winged Jungle Viper. That looks wild! :CON:

I just got the RHINO from target what an awsome vechile and it was on $40 on sale. Still a pass on the PITT playset not worth $100.00. New figs look great.

First, Star Wars, then super heroes, and now this ??? Cant somebody get it through their heads that most Transformers fans like Transformers because they didnt want to collect or play with little Ken dolls dressed in costumes. :grin:

What the crap? This stuff is just too weird. Besides for custom fodder, I'll pass on most of that.
