IDW’s big crossover event has been going on for a couple of months now, and a secret group of pro-Earth forces is getting closer to their goal of wiping out the entire race of Transformers, plus any G.I. Joes who get in their way. Click the jump for a look at the story so far and some preview images of Hasbro’s First Strike #3.
I had a chance to review the SDCC 2016 exclusive “G.I. Joe and Transformers” set from Hasbro, and jumped at it like a pro. And then procrastinated like a rookie. Sorry guys. Check out the review: I took pictures, and there’s some snarky comments about stickers.
G.I. Joe: Retaliation is the squeal to the 2009s G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. Duke is back leading a new team of Joes: Roadblock, Lady Jaye, Flint, Snake Eyes, Jinx, and General Joseph Colton. The Joes band together to take on Cobra Commander, Zartan, Storm Shadow, and Firefly before they destroy the world. Whereas the first one felt like a messy toy commercial, this new movie feels more like the G.I. Joe movie fans would want.
G.I. Joe are all well known American heroes, but it’s the unsung heroes of Leland and Spooky who are burdened with the task of watching 2009’s G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra, and now they want to share their experience with you.
Welcome to the first official Movie Issues Podcast! A heartfelt podcast where two guys brave the deepest and darkest recesses of cinema and bring back some of the worst movies they can find.

Back in the 80’s, every boy wanted to be like a G.I. Joe. Fight evil, fly special jets, be armed with awesome weapons, and always be on the winning team. U-S-A, U-S-A, U-S-A, U-S-A! The show was so awesome back then because they always used state-of-the-art technology. I mean, they always fired lasers from their guns! That’s much more cooler than lame bullets, am I right?
The toys were even cooler. To pretend that you’re making you’re own episode or skit, just like they did in the commercials you would watch on Saturday mornings. Saying, “MOMMY! BUY ME THAT!”
But now, as I look back on this once great cartoon, I realize that real war isn’t all fun and games. Real people die in wars. In G.I. Joe, the enemies usually escaped out of their tanks before it was hit with a missile. So, no one actually dies. And now, G.I. Joe is coming back as a live action film. Read On
