Towards the end of the Rise of Cobra line, certain figures never saw the light of day, but were later re-purposed as part of the Pursuit of Cobra line. These two figures fall in to that category. Included in these actions are Jungle Duke and Jungle Cobra Commander. You might ask “What’s so special about these?”

Well, if you look closely, the Jungle Duke figure sports a Channing Tatum headsculpt, whereas the Jungle Cobra Commander includes a “Nanobot” and features a ROC Commander’s head on a body that was later used for POC Cobra Commander. You can check out both links below and even get your bid in if you’d like!

Joe Moscone Auctions Off Pieces of Collection For Cancer!

Thanks to Justin from GeneralsJoes we’ve received word that Joe Moscone is doing something really awesome in the name of cancer research!

Anyone who has visited JoeCon, Toy Fair, or SDCC over the past several years likely ran into Joe Moscone, one of the stalwart PR professionals who at one point helped Hasbro interface with the fans and threw his considerable support behind our favorite brands.

Every year Joe launches a fundraising campaign to support cancer research, and this year he continues that great fight.  As an added edge, though, he is holding a series of eBay auctions, where 100% of the proceeds go to this terrific fund Receptions for Research.

You can find the current eBay auctions right here, and if you’re not into the eBay scene, consider just supporting his cause directly.  It’s a great thing, and you’ll be throwing your support behind someone who spent many years supporting our favorite toy and entertainment properties.

NOTE: The eBay page hosting the auction is Joe’s girlfriend’s, Caitlin Elgin, who is also part of the fundraising team—the New Jersey Grabowskis.

Take a few minutes to do what you can… it’s a great cause and you can get some great toys while you’re at it.  How can you go wrong?

That red ninja almost makes me want to sign up for eBay again.  Almost.
