« on: January 5, 2012, 10:49 AM »

GI Joe Movie 2 Blade Of Justice: Blister Card: 4 Per Case
GI Joe Movie 2 Delta Vehicle Asst: Folding Carton: 2 Per Case
GI Joe Movie 2 10" Inch Battle-Kata Battlers: Platform Box: 3 Per Case
GI Joe Movie 2 Alpha Vehicle Asst: Blister Card: 8 Per Case
GI Joe Movie 2 Mask Asst: Box With Header: 6 Per Case

Lots of kiddie stuff here.  Delta size vehicles has me intrigued.  Was that what the Night Raven or RHINO were "classified" as ?

I was looking at that last night.  I'm interested to see what's in the Delta Vehicle assortment.  And it looks like it's going to be heavy on the role play and not as many whacky scales and new lines.  Basic action figures and vehicles, whatever the 10" Battle-Kata Battlers are and then role play.  Nice and manageable and not blown out like 2009 was.

I can't wait to see the figures.  If nothing else, I'm buying the Rock Roadblock figure the second I see it on the pegs!

Looks much more scaled back from ROC, which is good. I'm curious about Alphas this time around.

I figure all the really neat stuff will be exclusives, like it was with ROC. Can't wait for Toy Fair to see what Hasbro has to offer.  :)

I was wondering about exclusives.  I know that Hasbro is cutting back on Star Wars exclusives this year and was wondering if that's a new corporate strategy or if it was just for that line.

With Phantom Menace, Joe, Avengers and Spider-Man all hitting this year (and assuming no Ghost Rider toys) I'm really wondering how it's all going to be managed.  If anything will fall out due to the amount of aisle space those lines are going to take up.  I could see fewer exclusives all around just so that stores will have the room to fit the wide release stuff.

Still, I'm more excited to see the Joe stuff for 2012 than I am Star Wars.

First look at the new movie toys

http://www.usatoday.com/life/comics/story/2012-02-01/GI-Joe-Retaliation-movie-toys/52918456/1

Other than the Halo helmet, I'm kind of digging the Joe Trooper

Joe Trooper would easily be my fav as a kid, envisioning myself as one of them under that bucket.  Actually I am impressed with them all.  Much more of a 1980's feel than I expected. Maybe this movie will be actually really cool?  I have a little hpoe now after seeing that Cobra Trooper and Commander.

Duke is as lame as ever though.  Cool Star Wars bounty hunter rifle he has there though.  That'll be nice when he hits clearance.

Those figures actually don't look too bad.  Between these and the trailer, I'm cautiously optimistic about the moviet his summer.  Definitely like the look of CC and the troops better.  I had planned, outside of Snake Eyes, on passing on this line - but these do look kind of neat.

Wow. That's some good looking stuff. Hopefully Hasbro avoids sticking missile launchers in the packages this time around.

More new Retaliation toys revealed today.

And I'm PISSED! They're releasing Jinx as an SDCC exclusive!  I still don't have last year's Zarana and now it's looking like I'll probably miss out on Jinx also.  Oh, and there is way too much "ninja" in this line.

I was pretty excited for this line but right now I'm just so angry over Jinx that I'm not even interested in it anymore.

Liking everything I'm seeing so far as far as the figures...vehicles are a meh...  As far as SDCC Joes?  Outside of Zarana who I got from JD I have to face the fact I'll never own the rest.  No biggie, but a piss off to say the least.

Weird colors on a lot of the toys, and those motorcycles are extremely lame. As for Jinx, I'm hoping they'll have quantities similar to the ROC Destro from a few years back. At least the ARAH costume appears to be the normal figure and not the variant. I'm not sure if I want the Jinx figures but hopefully everyone who does want them can get them for a decent price.

Great. Another SDCC exclusive I'll have to pay $40 to acquire. And those vehicles are junk, though I'm glad to get another chance at the hiss scout and cycle armor.

But the rest of the stuff looks great.
