JoeCon 2010 and G.I.Joe Renegades

The guests at JoeCon 2010 were treated to info on the new, upcoming G.I.Joe Series, G.I.Joe Renegades!

The animation is on a G.I.Joe Resolute level. The G.I.Joe Renegades toy line will launch in Fall of 2011. The line will be a follow up to G.I.Joe Pursuit of Cobra which will end after Spring of 2011.

Renegades is a relaunch. The story starts off with the G.I.Joe Team on the run. There will be 26 episodes to start out, beginning with a 2 Part Pilot.

The 2 stills that were shown are of very high quality, which is a big plus for those that are looking forward to this new series. Unfortunately, there was no footage/sound.

The Hasbro Team hinted at a Snake Eyes & Storm Shadow 2 Part Arc and also noted that we’ll be getting back stories for characters! There will be no “dumbed down” stories as the writing in the series has both children and adults in mind.

We’ll definitely be sure to fill you in on more details as they’re received. For now, join in on the discussion in progress!

    If the animation is similar to Resolute, then the figures won't be stylized. I'm glad they're not going the Transformers Animated and Clone Wars route.

    This sounds very exciting! Was thinking of the million ways they could screw up this cartoon but if what is posted here is what we can expect it sounds perfect! ...Wish I was there got friends who live in Providence, I should have taken some vacation time and made it happen!

    ...I'm thinking that Low Light could possibly be for this toy line????? Also does anyone have pics of the two stills shown?

    Ok they have perked my attnetion with the not dumming it down and possibility they wont be stylized like transformers animated. Best news I have heard yet. Time for them to execute and deliver. Sux though that POC will ending the spring of 2011 thats what august sept oct nov decem jan feb march? 8 months before a new series of figures gets released...again. If it hangs onto Resolute and the look and feel of POC I am all for it. Hate to start all over again with a another new toy line which will then segway into ROC 2.0 another new toy line argh...
