Paramount Announces New G.I.Joe Movie Release Date

The Hollywood Reporter has just shared details that should excite G.I.Joe fans – There’s a release date slated for the next G.I.Joe movie! THR noted that today was chock full of release dates from Paramount. Here’s a snippet of intel from the full article – 

A film simply titled G.I. Joe will hit theaters March 27, 2020. The studio previously released two films based on the Hasbro property — G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra (2009) and G.I. Joe: Retaliation (2013). 2020 will be a Hasbro year, as the studio has set Micronauts to open seven months later on Oct. 16, 2020. The toy property follows a race of Alien warriors from an alternate dimension that’s microscopic. Paramount also carved out a July 23, 2021 date for Dungeons & Dragons, based on the table top roll playing game, and set aside Oct. 1, 2021 for an untitled Hasbro event film.

The article goes on to discuss the shared universe under the Allspark banner, so make sure to head over to THR and give it a read! There you have it, folks. Set your targets on March 27, 2020, as that’s what our favorite Modern Army Action Figure is set to hit the silver screen once more!

After a brief hiatus in 2006 that allowed the G.I. Joe brand to flourish in other areas, G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero was reintroduced in a new stylistic direction that is still predominately used today! Not only did this reintroduction allow fans to revisit some of their most cherished icons within the G.I. Joe mythos, they were introduced to new characters that are now known and loved.

Rank & File Volume 2.1 is an update to the sophomore guide in a series that fully displays every G.I. Joe action figure produced, with a focus on offerings from “The Rise of Cobra” and “The Pursuit of Cobra” lines. 

Don’t forget, you can pick up volume 3 and the original R.A.H.C. Guide directly from Mr. James Kavanaugh Jr. via the R.A.H.C. Guide website!

Mark Bellomo Announces 3rd Edition Of The Ultimate Guide To G.I.Joe By Krause Publications

It’s been an exciting day for our bookshelves! Early today via Facebook, Mr. Mark Bellomo shared word that his fan favorite book, The Ultimate Guide to G.I.Joe by Krause Publications has had a 3rd edition approved!

The 3rd edition touts a 32 page count increase over the 2nd edition, now covering all the awesome items discovered since, as well as restoring the index. This guide to the guts-and-glory of G.I. Joe identifies every figure with all its weapons and gear, every vehicle with all the easy-to-lose pieces and every accessory related to Hasbro’s stellar team of soldiers. Use The Ultimate Guide to G.I. Joe to expand your knowledge about Joe and the team, or Cobra and his cronies, and to identify and assess the value of any of the series 350 action figures and 240 vehicles and accessories.

Best part? It’ll be printed in hardcover. I’ll let Mark’s words describe it, as I couldn’t possibly put it any better:

This one’s gonna be a THUNKER. (I like to believe that the onomatopoeic sound a heavy book makes when it’s dropped onto a coffee table = ‘thunk’).
