IDW ARAH GIJOE 215 cover

Longtime G.I. Joe Team member Snake Eyes who punctuated innumerable battles with his silent but deadly approach was Killed In Action on April 22nd 2015.

Leaving behind a legacy that has touched and saved so many lives, his indomitable courage and fighting spirit will live on in the halls of the PIT, and the hearts and minds of the G.I. Joe Team forever. Snake Eyes was tempered on the anvil of life until he was as dangerous as a razor-edged sword. Although his sword may be forever sheathed, his life will always be remembered as that of a true American Hero.

Duke was quoted saying “You’re laying there, out of ammo listening to the Cobra H.I.S.S. Tanks rolling in, and you know you’re not getting out. Everybody you know, your family is half-way around the world, and you think you’re never going to see them again and today is your day. Then, over the machine gun noise and the smell of burning diesel fuel you faintly hear that sound of Arashikage Steel, you look up to see Snake Eyes, but it doesn’t seem real, because no one man alone could take down that kind of Armor with just his blade. That’s Snake Eyes!

RIP Snake Eyes 1982 – 2015

The latest issue of The Joe Report, a newsletter published by the team at Patches of Pride, puts to “paper” what has been on the wall for some time now – Hasbro has no intent on keeping the 12-inch line of G.I.Joe alive, but no worries, all hope is not lost!

Brian Savage and The G.I.Joe Collectors Club have announced production of (at least) 4 more officially licensed 12-Inch G.I.Joe Action Figures! The article is very thorough, detailing what lies ahead on the horizon for 12-Inch G.I.Joe collectors and also includes quotes directly from Brian.

Here’s a brief excerpt from the article –

On the Club’s 2 New Upcoming (12-inch) GIjOE Lost Talkers:

“On the 12-inch side…we had started this ‘Lost Talker’ series a few years ago. We did the Talking Action Soldier and the Talking Marine…in the old days, when these were made…around ’67, they only had 8 talking phrases. We found out that in the archive, there were actually 10 recorded by the original voice actors that were not included. What we did with these figures was, we went back…and were able to add all 10 phrases. So not only were they reproduction Talkers as they had been, but they had 2 phrases that had never been heard, not newly recorded phrases, but original, vintage ’60s recorded phrases that were—LOST.”

GI Joe Resolute HissTank

Can you believe it? This week marks the 6th Anniversary of G.I.Joe Resolute!

 
G.I.Joe: Resolute was an animated series that offered viewers a much more mature take on the G.I.Joe franchise. The series originally debuted on the internet, as clips that aired on Adult Swim Video. With a Content rating of TV-14V, it was clear to see why this series was a hit with fans, as it gave us all the “big kid version” of G.I.Joe that many of us had been waiting for. I’d even go as far as to say G.I.Joe Resolute is the best G.I.Joe movie out there to date.

Resolute spawned a line of figures, from single carded offerings, to comic packs and multi packs. This included Modern Era “Resolute” style figures of Cobra Commander, Cobra Trooper and Duke (single carded). A five-figure “Resolute” box set was also released, with Cobra Commander, Cobra B.A.T., Cobra Officer, Cobra Trooper and Duke, repainted in colors from the cartoon series. Two “Comic book 2-packs” were released, one with Destro and Shockblast, the other with Storm Shadow and Tunnel Rat. Both comic packs included Resolute comic books, with new stories by Mr. Larry Hama. The following year, in 2010, a Joe and Cobra Multi pack were released, giving fans many characters that may have not seen the light of day otherwise.

Head on over to the HissTank.com Database to check out the entire line of G.I.Joe Resolute Figure Offerings.

Rank and File Cover HissTank

Mr. James Kavanaugh, aka KuuKuuSon has issued a press release regarding his two G.I.Joe titles, R.A.H.C. Guide and the newly released Rank & File Guide Vol 1. Check it out –

The Rank & File Guide Vol 1 and R.A.H.C. Guide are now available as a set!

Update: The Rank & File Guide Vol 1 and R.A.H.C. Guide are now available as a set! Subscribe to the newsletter at: rahc.guide@gmail.com.

Hello and, WOW, it’s been a whirlwind last two weeks! Joe Con 2015 started for me on Tuesday, the 7th and ended for me on Monday, the 13th. It has since taken me a week to recover, I might be getting old… MIGHT.

I can’t thank everyone enough who attended and supported the Rank & File Guide Vol. 1!! In that time, I have taken the time to take stock in the current situation of the R.A.H.C. Guide and how to facilitate transactions beyond payment for one or both guides. The new format of the Rank & File Guides has required alternative shipping materials to ensure a cost effective, yet sturdy enough, solution to deliver your guides in a safely and timely manner. Those material purchases are being finalized this weekend. The R.A.H.C. Guide’s storage facilities are also at maximum capacity so we are currently only opening Rank & File sales to those who are interested in both guides. The R.A.H.C. Guide is available individually and the shipping preparation for the first guide is a qualitative solution for both guides but not for the thinner Rank & File Guide. The R.A.H.C. Guide is also currently available on it’s own for $40.

The website will be updated to reflect the availability of both guides soon but can currently be ordered via PayPal by sending $60 (U.S. residents only) and $79 for international customers. The PayPal address is:

rahc.guide@gmail.com.

Also on the horizon is an updated website. The original was a quick design to help facilitate the overwhelming demand for the first guide, yet not easy to update in a timely fashion. And again, both guides are very limited (the R.A.H.C. Guide stock is running VERY low) so don’t miss your chance to own these self published guides! Thanks again for your patience, understanding and support for these guides, it truly is the source of my inspiration and motivation!
