G.I. Joe Silent Strike Box Set

A tank rolls through the city to scout out the G.I. Joe forces, only to be assaulted from above by a swooping G.I. Joe jet – and the battle of the Silent Strike pack is joined! The G.I. Joe Skystriker jet vehicle’s pivoting wings make it hyper-maneuverable for the Brad “Ace” Armbruster figure to steer into a fast dive, and its retractable landing gear makes it more streamlined for its missile attack! The Sightline figure is in command as the jet barrels toward the H.I.S.S. tank vehicle. But the tank’s spinning gatling gun and rotating gun turret will move into position for your H.I.S.S. Gunner figure to fire as your H.I.S.S. Driver figure revs up for the collision! With an arsenal of weapons and gear for both sides, the Silent Strike pack has whole a G.I. Joe-Cobra war just waiting to be deployed!

G I Joe Renegades Unused Concept Art

Around this time 4 years ago, G. I Joe: Renegades fans were getting ready for the final episode of the series in just three weeks’ time. It was sad to see it go. We never saw it returning back from the “hiatus” and we never had a new G. I. Joe series on the telly since.

Speaking of what we never had… here’s a bunch of G. I Joe: Renegades Concept Art which never made it to the show. Artist Jeff Johnson has shared these on his Deviant Art page and on his Facebook profile. Some of the art are actually dating back to 2010 but they have flown under our radar. It was thanks to Facebook user John Simcoe that we got to know about them.

Enjoy the images, after the jump.
