G.I.Joe Collectors Club 2018 Membership Incentive Figures Announcement

The G.I.Joe Collectors Club has shared word of their 2018 Membership Incentive figures. The update includes details on Rock N’ Roll, alongside their 12″ offering, the Black & White TV Edition figure! Here’s the scoop – 

12-INCH G.I. JOE BLACK & WHITE TV EDITION:

Back in 1964 when 12″ G.I. JOE debuted, most children first saw the iconic action figure in shades of gray on their home black and white TV set. Now for the first time, the G.I. JOE Collectors’ Club captures that early experience of G.I. JOE before we saw the toys on retail shelves! Beginning with the 2018 Membership figure (box and accessories sold separately), you can collect all four of the Black and White TV Edition 12″ G.I. JOE action figures! These figures will be a VERY limited edition!

*************************************************

3 3/4-INCH GATLING GUNNER ROCK ‘N ROLL:

This 3 3/4″ modern era update of ROCK ‘N ROLL (V2)… inspired by his 1989 action figure with uniform colors based on his Marvel comic appearance and animation model design. Our club exclusive release features a NEW head sculpt, removable harness, submachine gun, ammo belt, backpack and re-tooled double-barrel gatling gun. It will be mailed in a polybag that includes file card, weapons and figure stand.

**************************************************

Make sure you’re an active member by March 16th for the final year of the official G.I. Joe Collectors’ Club. You will receive monthly issues of the Club Magazine, access to Club Store Exclusives including the FSS (Figure Subscription Service), Discounts for the International G.I. Joe Collectors’ Convention, and your choice of either a FREE 3 3/4″ or 12″ G.I. Joe action figure as listed above!

Mark Bellomo Announces Association With The Toys That Made Us On Netflix

Mr. Mark Bellomo, the Author Extraordinaire that has brought us fan favorite titles such as The Ultimate Guide to G.I.Joe, announced yesterday via Facebook that he has been involved with a project that we’ve all be beyond excited about…the upcoming Toys That Made Us series on Netflix! Here’s what was shared:

Wanted to <finally> share a television project I’ve been involved with, since the first four episodes drop right before Christmas (December 22nd) on Netflix: Star Wars, Barbie, Masters of the Universe, and G. I. Joe. Great experience. Tough editing process to meet Netflix analytics (not toy geeks, alas), so the episodes top out @ 45-50 minutes. I’m in three of the first four episodes. Don’t <think> I discussed Barbie… Great production values, a fairly deep dive into the brands as time permitted. Awesome director. More reminders to come.

Learning of Mark’s involvement has increased my excitement level tenfold. What about you? Excited to hear that Mark is a part of The Toys That Made Us? Sound off after the break on the Cobra Island Forums!

Dynamic Attractions Reveals G.I.Joe vs Cobra Amusement Ride at IAAPA 2017

Earlier today, Dynamic Attractions officially teased an upcoming G.I. Joe vs. Cobra ride at IAAPA 2017. Yes, you read that right! A G.I.Joe vs Cobra Ride! Named “G.I.Joe vs Cobra – The Experience”, the ride takes you through the Temple of the Forbidden Snake on a ride like you’ve never seen before. The best part? Your ride kinda/sorta looks like a VAMP! 

The Dynamic All-Terrain Dark Ride is a trackless, indoor/outdoor dark ride vehicle that breaks boundaries. By breaking boundaries, this attraction actually breaks them as it is completely trackless. Now this doesn’t mean that you can’t take a turn driving it. The Dynamic All-Terrain Dark Ride is the first dark ride that will allow guests to seemingly go anywhere they steer. “In the military world, they call this ‘Fly by Wire’,” explains Haimson. “However, if they come close to another vehicle, wall or obstacle, the system will safely and thematically take control.”

We’ve shared a small gallery of images along with a video of the ride in action that you can check out by reading more below. What are your initial thoughts? Is the G.I.Joe vs Cobra Experience something you’d like to check out? Share your thoughts with us after the break on the Cobra Island Forums!
