HotGToys on Instagram: We’ve been sneaking around for weeks and it’s time to come clean: Popprolific and Hammer of the Gods have joined forces to bring you… Fury Force! A series of 80s inspired, 5.5, military figures you never knew you wanted. Heroes who will defend freedom at all costs against the ruthless Agents of the Serpent. Keep an eye here and throw my man POPprolific a follow to keep updated on release schedule.

Popprolific on InstagramThere was a space in my collection…. a gap between the space faring barbarians and the hordes of snake persons. A spot on the shelf where something was missing. Had I seen it before? I couldn’t quite bring it into focus… @hotgtoys saw it too. An idea so familiar, yet bizarrely different. It was like your childhood… only, not the way you remember. In the way nostalgia is sometimes. The rumors were true, we’ve combined our talents. Months spent in secrecy, and only the tip if the iceberg has been seen. That is, until now….

As seen in the attached images, there are 8 characters so far, with more teased at as coming soon! Will you be adding these amazing Fury Force figures to your collection once they become available? Sound off after the break 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.
