Sideshow Collectibles now has a preview of thier new Cobra Commander: The Dictator Sixth Scale Figure which comes complete with both hooded and helmeted swappable heads, as well as a cape, Cobra scepter, dagger, and pistol. Sadly, the giant Cobra snake throne isn’t included. The figure will be priced at $175.
The second issue of G.I. JOE: The Cobra Files opens with the son of the original Cobra Commander awaking from a coma. After shaking the kid up a little, the JOEs send in Chameleon for the role she was born to play, bending men to her will. Realizing his role as the team’s intelligence officer into Cobra may be diminished by Billy agreeing to cooperate, Tomax makes some moves of his own by beginning to plant seeds of discord among the ranks starting with the teams technical officer Clockspring.
Most of the action in G.I. JOE #3 is set inside Duke‘s mind as Dr. Mindbender tries to break the JOE and force him to give them the all-clear code which will allow Cobra to continue their plans. Various memories of Duke from childhood through the circumstances that led to him to enlist with the JOEs are used to try and break Duke, but Mindbender and the Baroness discover the process isn’t as easy as they had hoped.
The newest of IDW’s G.I. JOE titles centers around Chameleon, a former agent of Cobra now working for the good guys in an usual JOE team which includes Flint, Lady Jaye, Clockspring, and another former member of Cobra who tried to kill Chameleon several times in the past – Tomax.
Realizing they aren’t the only ones looking for Cobra’s sunken treasure Scarlett and Mainframe are forced to hide from other divers sent from the Baroness‘ ship who are, at least so far, clueless to the JOEs presence.
Four years after the train wreck that was G.I. JOE: The Rise of Cobra, the sequel finally makes it to theaters after converting the movie to 3D and shooting additional scenes to cash-in on Channing Tatum‘s increased celebrity. G.I. JOE: Retaliation doesn’t prove to be worth the wait, but it’s certainly far better than the original.
From The Loyal Subjects come these 3in. Mini-G.I. JOE figures. The figures are sold separately in blind boxes, meaning you won’t know which one of the 11 figures (which include Snake Eyes, Storm Shadow, Destro, Cobra Commander, Zartan, Gung-Ho, Duke, and Snow Job) you’ll get, for $13 a piece.* You can also plop down a hefty $208 for an entire case of 16 figures (but with the possibility of multiple duplicates still isn’t guaranteed to get you a full set).
