Possible Upcoming GI Joe Product?!?! New GI Joe Kreo and Zombies???

All the credit for this belongs to the Fighting118th. On Hasbro’s Customer Service site, they found SEVERAL listings for new/potential GI Joe product! While I want to jump on the hype train big time, we should take things slow. Lets take a look at the different screen shots.

First up the potential Kreo product:

There are listings for: Outpost Defender, Firebat Attack, Figure Waves 3 and 4 (if I am reading that correctly), Figure Packs, Outpost Defense, a TERROR DROME, and the Wolverine vs Firebat. 

That is quite a list. Notice I omitted the “Serpent Snake Armor” as a set with a very similar name has already been released, but this could possibly be something different as well. The big thing that sticks out is the Terror Drome! It would be amazing to get that in Kreo form! I want to believe in the veracity of this list because of the Wolverine vs. Firebat listing that we have already seen in a TRU computer screen grab. But who knows….

The other 3 screen shots:

Highlights from this list include: VAMP MK II, Ultimate Gift Set, Vehicle Collection Air, ZOMBIE Apocalypse, Vehicle Collection Land, Vehicle Collection Sea, and Desert SPec Ops Team!

This could lead to a VERY promising 50th Anniversary! But for the moment, it is all unconfirmed speculation. We will probably be forced to wait until Toy Fair in February for any of this to be confirmed or dismissed.

New GI Joes, Comics and More!

Well guys I have been busy buying all kinds of stuff lately, so I will have a lot of great new, unique and rarely seen content coming up. In addition, I am going to start putting pictures of  my entire collection online. It will be a mammoth undertaking and something that will be work in progress for awhile. As a start, I have edited the “My Collection” page and formatted into different picture galleries. The First one up is a small portion of my Funskool GI Joe figure and vehicle collection. More will be added this weekend.

First up for some hard to find items that many have probably never even heard of are GI Joe comics from Egypt and India! There were 4 GI Joe comics produced in Egypt in Arabic. Pictured below are 3 of the 4. These are vary rare and I know of only one other person that has them (but this being GI Joe, I am sure there are others out there with them).

The next two pictures are of GI Joe #1 and #2 produced in English, in India by Funskool (who also produced the GI Joe toys in India). The Covers of these are in a lot rougher shape but the inner pages are white with bright colors. I believe there was only 1 other GI Joe comic produced in India.

In upcoming posts I will also share other rare international versions of GI Joe comics, so if you enjoy seeing all the different places that GI Joe was produced, keep coming back for more.

G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #194

Larry Hama (w) • S L Gallant, Hama (a & c)

G.I. JOE makes its way to Sierra Gordo, looking for the next piece of the puzzle that will reveal COBRA’s newest plot. But when they find that the evil corporation Revanche has a presence in Latin America, they could be involved in something far more sinister than the typical COBRA plot. What secrets does Revanche hold?
