with Retaliation coming, Hasbro is heating things up with their G.I. Joe offerings
2 box sets have appeared on the internet. Both box sets are Amazon.com releases later this year.
the first is a Retaliation “Premiere Pack” 4-pack. It will have Snake-Eyes, Storm Shadow, Cobra Commander and Roadblock. All of them are the first wave figures. The Cobra Commander has a new black Deco.
The next is a G.I. Joe Renegades 4-pack with Snake-Eyes, Duke, Storm Shadow and a Red Ninja. Duke is exactly the same figure with new kneepads. Snake-eyes seems to be intact from his Renegades Single pack, although with new kneepads and a trenchcoat (most likely stolen from the Iron Man 2 Nick Fury figure that was dumped to TRU). Storm Shadow is all new, looking less like his Renegades look, and more to his ’82 look with Renegades Asthetics. The Red Ninja is the same as Storm Shadow.
Lastly, Gyre-Viper from the JoeDeclassified.com forums discovered some new discount store-only figures that will appear soon as well:
In case you’re scratching your head as to where they got some of these ideas for the repaints, here’s a guide to them I came up with that’ll give you all a better idea what they are referencing:
Shipwreck – based on his 2003 V5 version. Or many have called him, the Devil’s Due version from where this look came from.
Duke – while not based on any particular Duke figure, he does have a striking resemblance to the 1982 V1 Grunt.
Snake-Eyes – based on his 1991 look, sans his dayglow orange sword and guns…
Storm Shadow – based on his 1992 Ninja Force look.
Cobra Trooper – while they are all based on that 1982 version, this is the first time the trooper has been done in black.
Cobra Commander – this one is based on his 1993 look.
