I heard about the movie announcement but didn’t connect the dots. There could be some potential here.

NERDRAHTIO

For a few years there have been rumblings of a new Jurassic Park movie, including awful hybrid dinosaur people. Right along as movie fans tracked the progress that would eventually lead to the new new announcement earlier today  has been a set of G.I.Joe based toys that  did not see released. You can find more out more about them on Joe Declassified.

Could this offer another chance for Hasbro to get this out to consumers? possibly as an exclusive with Toys R Us as previously rumored?   Or will Hasbro be happy with having used the new tooling (heads) in the BBTS exclusive packs from last year ?

Let us know your thoughts here.

GI Joe Retaliation Movie News

It just came out that the reshooting of the movie was not to add more Duke/Channing Tatum to the movie. Its an interesting development, it sucked in the first movie, so I really hope that he is not in it much. Instead of killing Duke, I’d rather Retaliation would have just started completely anew, taking nothing from the first movie as if it never existed.

It also seems that Marlon Wayans/Ripcord is apparently happy that he was not included in Retaliation. To me it seems like sour grapes. Here is his quote from allhiphop.com “I’m not in it. Rip Cord steps on a landmine. They blew his black ass up… The last one they realized the black guy was the hero of the movie. So, they said ‘You know what? We’re going to do the sequel just so we can fix that. Let’s kill the black guy’.”

Apparently it was a racial thing. LOL.
