G I Joe 31

We have with us a small document from Hasbro, highlighting their near future Entertainment Plans including G. I. Joe.

What’s so special about it is the fact that Hasbro has not forgotten G. I. Joe, after all. The franchise was missing from press materials for a long time but Hasbro did acknowledged that G. I. Joe 3 is in production.

Unfortunately though, it does not join other famous brands as an Animated Series in the near future. Most of Hasbro brands are getting renewed seasons or new shows. G. I. Joe is not on the list.

“On the film side, the [Hasbro] studio has developed and produced a number of features based on Hasbro’s brands. In addition to partnering with leading studios, the Company intends to make movies based on new and existing Hasbro brands for audiences globally through its Allspark Pictures film label. Films in development or planned for release, include TRANSFORMERS 5 (Paramount), G.I. JOE 3 (Paramount), JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS (Universal & Allspark Pictures), OUIJA 2 (Universal & Allspark Pictures), MAGIC: THE GATHERING (21st Century Fox), PLAY-DOH (21st Century Fox) and an animated feature based on MY LITTLE PONY (Allspark Pictures).”

Last we heard from the 3rd movie was the fact that D. J. Caruso taking over the director role from Jon Chu and the script being re-written by new writers. Hasbro has planned for upcoming movie projects and hopefully we’ll hear more soon.

You can checkout some extracts from the document, after the jump.

marauder logo kick starter

Thanks to your support, the launch of the original Marauder Task Force 1:18 scale action figure line was a tremendous success! The momentum of the first MTF release spawned requests for more figures, more accessories, and demands for FEMALE Marauder Task Force team members. We are delighted to introduce our female Marauder Task Force team members, the VALKYRIES, or as we fondly refer to them, “Vals.”

Each highly detailed Marauder Task Force VALKYRIES figure is fully articulated, features multi-role customizable design options, is fully factory painted and equipped with a wide variety of interchangeable accessories. As with the male MTF figures, the simple-to-customize figures are designed to work WITH “modular” gear & accessories. Most of the modular accessories from the original MTF figures WILL work with the new Val figures and vice versa. The action figures have a unique design versatility that allows for use in Sci-Fi, Police, Military, and Superhero roles. Basically, whatever scenario is required, the Marauder Task Force VALKYRIES figures can fill the need. The nameless, faceless minions are ideal for army building or to use as “backup” with other currently available action figures.

Each 1:18 scale action figure is approximately 4 inches tall, made from high tech ABS & PVC materials and produced AT a modern factory (NOT “castings” made out of “resin”). The figures feature an amazing level of sculpting detail and realistic authentic designs. For maximum poseability, each figure has a large number of articulation points to allow positioning in virtually any pose required.

“Modular” interchangeable accessories is the key feature to the Marauder GR Valkyrie Action Figure System. To assist the “customizers” in our hobby, the removable headgear & vests have “modular” attachment points which provide the ability to “mix & match” the assorted modular equipment as desired. Also, there are “modular” accessory mounting points ON the actual figure. The figures and accessories will be available in assorted colors.

There are several participation levels in our Kickstarter project. Everything from simple contributions, to single figure level options, to massive 50 figure “Valhalla” sets…all the way to limited “one of a kind” Paint Master prototypes. The higher the participation level, the better the value. To add to the event, there are several “Stretch” goals. If we hit the stretch goals MORE female Val figure styles will be available, NEW male MTF figure designs & body parts will be available to order and FREE bonus items will be added to specific participation levels.

If you’re looking for super detailed, articulated, fully painted, easy to customize 1:18 scale FEMALE action figures with interchangeable accessories…the Marauder Task Force Valkyries action figures are for you!

With YOUR support, we can make it happen!

Python Patrol Croc Master GIJOE 50th Anniversary 012

Croc Master is a former alligator wrestler and burglar alarm salesman who founded Guard-Gators Inc. in an effort to commercialize the use of alligators for home security. He now keeps Cobra Island secure with a large bask or ultra-aggressive crocodiles that cruise the maze of shallow canals that weave through the island. His system suffers a setback when Blowtorch uses heat-blasting weapons to cut a dry channel directly through the island, bypassing all the ravenous crocs.
