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.
