The Cobra-controlled Six Million Dollar Man clutches Hawk and the Joes in his indomitable grip while Scarlett and her team continue an impossible ascent to Cobra Commander’s throne room. Though all hope seems lost for the Real American Heroes, an incredible blast from the past could be the Joes’ secret to overcoming the odds of evil.
A cross-company crossover like no other, where ‘80s nostalgia meets modern-day mayhem!
Kung-Fu Grip or a Bionic Eye?! Now you can have both!
