Today we have a look at the SDCC IDW Revolution Box Set. This featured figures from many lines, and most of the 3.75 figures use G.I. Joe bodies as their base. In particular Roadblock was a treat due to his being a previously unreleased Renegades figure needed to complete the line up. We’ve done up over 140 images of the entire set which you can check out over at network site TFW2005.com here. If all you care about is Roadblock, then we’ve attached all his HD images to this story if you read on!
G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero comes to life with these great mini-figures! This G.I. Joe A Real American Hero 3-Inch Random Figure Series 1 Mini-Figure is one in a line that features some wonderfully stylized vinyl mini-figures with the likenesses of your favorite characters from the G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero series. Each figure measures 3-inches tall and is blind-box packaged with head and arm articulation for fun posing. Plus, you can mix and match the awesome array of interchangeable weapons that the figures come with! This awesome collection even features rare chase figures for you to try and collect. Featured in this collection are Snake Eyes, Blowtorch, Cobra Soldier, Copperhead, Firefly, Dusty, Crimson Guard, Roadblock, Beach Head, Major Bludd and more!

Looks like G.I. Joe is getting a fresh coat of paint. Thanks to CBR.com we have our first look and information at the new series that will continue post Revolution.
From what I read over on the CBR article it will have a more Sunbow cartoon feel and they want more action. Both are good things.

Finally! The long overdue Hasbro Universe comes together under one flag, IDW’s Revolution! Our first taste of the run that will crossover into many Hasbro properties, including M.A.S.K., ROM, Transformers and others was launched at SDCC 2016 with Issue #0. To be honest, the book was kinda vanilla and didn’t open to many eyes they way I would have hoped. However fans of the many lines that showed up in issue #0 seen growing excitement, at that point that’s all that mattered. Fast forward to the eve of Revolution and it’s time to kick off what will hopefully be the future of all these brands and a combined Hasbro Universe….. IDW did not disappoint!
Back in 2013, Hasbro was releasing “Ultimate Gift Sets” for its action figure lines such as Star Wars and Transformers. A GI Joe Ultimate Gift Set was in the works and actually listed on Amazon for a time. Unfortunately, this set was cancelled and we never saw the actual figures planned for inclusion….until now.
GI Joe Retaliation Ultimate Gift Set
- Cobra Commander
We aren’t completely sure if all of the accessories to be included, are actually shown in the pictures. Slice and Nunchuk both ended up being released in the GI Joe Collector’s Club Subscription line(with some different tooling compared to what’s seen here). Unfortunately, movie accurate Retaliation Cobra Commander and the specific Roadblock seen here remain to be seen. Sure, we did get a Ultimate Roadblock figure in 2013 but it wasn’t as comprehensive as this.
The “Ultimate Gift Set” Roadblock featured 3 heads: classic, movie and 1 from GI Joe Renegades! It also came with different gear to swap out. Had this set been released, fans would’ve finally gotten a fairly movie-accurate Retaliation Cobra Commander and the sole member missing from the core Renegades team. Could there still be hope? Hasbro doesn’t like sitting on unused tooling and who knows what’s going on with GI Joe 3?

Street Fighter X G.I. Joe #1 hits the shelf tomorrow, and it’s awesome! I will be the first person to admit that I didn’t think this was going to work, but I was wrong. The Street Fighter G.I. Joe line came into effect a long time after I had moved away from toys as a kid. However I was definitely playing Street Fighter II on Super Nintendo with all my teenage friends. I was a huge fan of the game and G.I. Joe but not in the same Universe. Until now that is! The book is action packed, and mixes the two universes together in a more Street Fighter way. Match ups like Snake Eyes vs. Crimson Viper and Baroness vs. Rufus will keep you wanting more. Good news is there is a ton of match ups coming in future books as well as a sub-plot that includes a Macguffin device. IDW nailed this one. Awesome art, awesome covers, and what seems to be a good story to kick things off.
Check out the Street Fighter X G.I. Joe #1 Review and sound off after the jump.
The end of Cobra World Order comes tomorrow! Another issue of IDW‘s GI Joe A Real American Hero is on the way tomorrow and we’ve got the preview.

Over the course of the last week, we’ve brought you word on the Roadblock 710 and Cobra Commander 574, two new pairs of G.I.Joe themed shoes being offered through a collaboration between BAIT and New Balance. As noted in both articles, both the Roadblock Boots and Cobra Commander Sneakers were offered to the public via a raffle that allowed the winner to purchase either both pairs, or each individually.
Rounding out this news piece comes word that the The BAIT x G.I. Joe x New Balance pack launches in-store on Saturday, June 20 at all five BAIT locations. The first few customers who purchase both shoes together at the BAIT Diamond Bar, LA, Seattle, and San Francisco locations will receive a limited-edition, handmade military crate to house the shoes.
Only 30 G.I. Joe and 30 Cobra crates were produced in total, so only a very limited number will be available at each of the four locations listed. Those who receive a crate will also be given the guaranteed priority-to-purchase for the next two installments of the BAIT x G.I. Joe x New Balance collaboration when they are released.
