1000Toys New Website Is Now Online!

By way of the 1000Toys Facebook Page comes word that the all new 1000Toys Website is now online! If you’re unfamiliar with 1000Toys, here’s the scoop – Tokyo-based 1000Toys was started with a simple core mission: “to launch original toys by Japanese creators.” The mission has expanded to work with creators from all over the world plus developing unique takes on licensed properties with an unwavering focus on quality and originality.

Over the course of the last 2 years, 1000Toys has teamed up with retailer BAIT to bring us exclusive G.I.Joe offerings. Two of those offerings are now available in the 1000Toys shop – 1/6 TOA Heavy Industries “STORM SHADOW”1/6 TOA Heavy Industries “DUKE”

On behalf of all of us here on Cobra Island, we’d like to congratulate 1000Toys on the new launch and wish them the best on the road head! 

We’ve mirrored galleries and descriptions of both Duke and Storm Shadow that you can check out by reading more below. What’s your take on the TOA Heavy Industries G.I.Joe series from 1000Toys? Share your thoughts with us on the Cobra Island Forums

BAIT New Balance G.I.Joe Limited Edition Hand Made Military Crate

Over the course of the last week, we’ve brought you word on the Roadblock 710 and Cobra Commander 574, two new pairs of G.I.Joe themed shoes being offered through a collaboration between BAIT and New Balance. As noted in both articles, both the Roadblock Boots and Cobra Commander Sneakers were offered to the public via a raffle that allowed the winner to purchase either both pairs, or each individually.

Rounding out this news piece comes word that the The BAIT x G.I. Joe x New Balance pack launches in-store on Saturday, June 20 at all five BAIT locations. The first few customers who purchase both shoes together at the BAIT Diamond Bar, LA, Seattle, and San Francisco locations will receive a limited-edition, handmade military crate to house the shoes.

Only 30 G.I. Joe and 30 Cobra crates were produced in total, so only a very limited number will be available at each of the four locations listed. Those who receive a crate will also be given the guaranteed priority-to-purchase for the next two installments of the BAIT x G.I. Joe x New Balance collaboration when they are released.
