While we've had no shortage of new toy coverage as of late, thanks to the tons of 2012 San Diego Comic-Con International-exclusives, this weekend saw the annual G.I. JoeCon take place in the sweltering party-haven known as new Orleans, Louisiana and with it, the reveal of a ton of new G.I. Joe action figures! Sure, G.I. Joe: Retaliation was pushed back until
the end of time March 29th, but that didn't stop Hasbro from whetting fan's collecting appetites with a slew of new 3 3/4" Joes from the film. Not only that, but prepare yourselves for a look at some of the tiniest combat-ready troops from both the Joe and Cobra forces to ever hit the battlefield with G.I. Joe Micro Force! These have that Super Hero Squad kinda feel, and we're dead set on acquiring that tiny Zartan!
Read on for some info straight from Hasbro themselves, along with a bunch of product photos-- cause we love ya!
Yo, Joe fans!
The Hasbro G.I. Joe team debuted some exciting new toys and new during today's G.I. Joe brand panel at the G.I. JoeCon in New Orleans, Louisiana, and we wanted to share it with you!
First, Hasbro announced a brand new expression - G.I. Joe Micro Force - at JoeCon, debuting the first ever images of this fun new style of toys for the G.I. Joe brand!
Then, the crowd at the Con was treated to the world premiere of several new figures from 2013's G.I. Joe Retaliation 3.75-inch line:
Ultimate Snake Eyes with Timber
Cobra Combat Ninja
Cobra Night Landing Mission with Cobra Eel
Ninja Showdown Assortment Wave 2
So there it is. Tons of Joes, including a vintage-looking Snake Eyes, and some of them are even tinier than usual. We'll be covering the Hasbro booth at SDCC 2012, and we're hoping to see some of these releases in person. For more on G.I. Joe in general, be sure to check out Hasbro's official website!
