2012 New York Toy Fair: Jay Cochran - 2012.02.11
Shown below are images from the Hasbro showroom at the New York Toy Fair for their G.I.Joe Retaliation line. We will also be uploading some new PR images of wave 5 shortly which was not on hand at the showroom, so stay tuned. Also here is a recap of information from the Hasbro panel for G.I.Joe.

- Movie line hits shelves in early June. The movie opens June 29 (Official May 30). There will be 50 figures including those with vehicles and 4 additional comic con exclusives including those sold with vehicles. 9 vehicles + 1 additional Comic Con exclusive.

- Wave 1 was on shelf June. Roadblock, Snake-Eyes, Cobra Commander, Duke, Storm Shadow, Zartan, GIJoe Trooper, Cobra Trooper, Red Ninja

- Wave 2 in July with movie accurate sculpts. Battle-Kata Roadblock, Firefly with no mask and scar and Flint with Beret. Firefly actually will have 2 different heads and a sled. Ninja Duel Snake-Eyes and Storm Shadow inspired by 1988 Camouflage version. These two will have ankle articulation.

- Wave 3 August will have Joe Colton (Bruce Willis) and Lady Jaye. also have Alley Viper, Cobra Ninja and Dragon Ninja.

- Wave 4 in September, Kim Arashikage (Jinx in Yellow) and Blind Master. They can't call the figure Jinx.

- Wave 5 in October will have Crimson Guard and Night Viper. Crimson Guard will have decals you can use to change rank and affiliation. Looks pretty sweet.

- Ninja Showdown Sets - Wave 2 will have Joe Night Ops with Agent Mouse, Night Ops Snake-Ees and Sgt Airborne (looks like Kwin with a mask) and Cobra Invasion Team with Fire Fly with mask, Storm Shadow and Cobra Invasion Trooper.

- Vehicles - Ninja Speed Cycle with Snake-Eyes with launching front wheel. Brovo has the Cobra Fangboat and Ninja Commando 4x4 with Snake-Eyes

- Tread Ripper with Clutch is part of Bravo wave 2. The Delta wave 1 will include Ghost Hawk II with zipline function and HISS Tank which is movie accurate
apparently. It comes with Cobra Commander. There is a lifesize version they hope to have on display at Joecon.

- 10" Ninja Commandos - Ninja Commando Roadblock and Snake-Eyes out in June. Each one has a vest that has everything they need to combat evil. They have a fluid style of interchangeable weapons.
te sound
- Role-Play items like Battle-Kata and Blade of Justice. Ninja Chucks will be out in August and Ninja Commando Blaster and Snake-Eye Nunja Gear which will be out in June. Look for Snake-Eyes, Storm Shadow and a generic Joe mask.

- SDCC Kim Arashikage (Jinx) red and white versions as well as the GIJoe/Transformers crossover will be Shockwave HISS which will come with a Destro and B.A.T figure. The B.A.T. will be in a Constructicon deco.

Who else can imagine the insane "Buy It Now" prices the scalpers dream up when they part out the Decpeticon accessories from the SDCC exclusive HISS? (link) "GI Joe scale Soundwave" Buy It Now $60.00! "GI Joe scale Decepticon caset" Buy It Now $30... read more

Yeah,the packaging is very lame.Kind of reminds me of the Action Man line from the mid 90s.

I don't usually buy movie figures but I might want some of these this time around.

I think this line will bring in more buyers than ROC for three reason: 1 and 2 The Rock and Bruce Willis. People who used to grow up with GI Joe but who may not have necessarily stuck with it to the degree we fanboys have, will see two of the biggest action stars on screen today in GI Joe form and ... read more

Seems like a pretty solid line to me. Kinda disappointed in the vehicle offerings, but I'll live. As is my rule, I'll only get the figures who actually see screen-time in the movie. Although, I'll probably make an exception for that Kamakura set.

Most of the figures are still pretty nice, even those without ankle articulation (and minus those terrible vehicle drivers). Nice to see Joe Colton and Yellow Jinx, as well as the Night Viper and Crimson Guard. I do have to say that I'm already sick of ninjas just looking at this stuff. Not su... read more

everything looks pretty awesome to me. I think I will be getting the majority of these figures... whereas for ROC, I only got 3 or 4. But it did seem to me like ROC had a hell of alot more figures and vehicles released for it. Also, while I like most of these figures, it seems like there is on... read more
