With Toy Fair going on right now in New York City, we’re finally getting images of all the upcoming movie toys. And with the popularity of “G.I. Joe” toys without a movie tie-in, I’m pretty sure Hasbro is anxiously awaiting the August release as a way to increase their profit for the year.
So as you’ll see below, if you’re into “G.I. Joe” you’re going to have a lot of things to spend your money on. From the looks of it, they’re releasing the normal 3 and ¾ figures, 12 inch figures, playsets, and a lot more. Finally, look for an article on all the “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” toys very soon.
And for the few that aren’t familiar with “G.I. Joe”….the film stars Sienna Miller, Rachel Nichols, Ray Park, Said Taghmaoui, Channing Tatum, Marlon Wayans, Dennis Quaid, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Christopher Eccleston, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Byung Hun Lee.
From the Egyptian desert to deep below the polar ice caps, the elite “G.I. Joe” team uses the latest in next-generation spy and military equipment to fight the corrupt arms dealer Destro and the growing threat of the mysterious Cobra organization to prevent them from plunging the world into chaos. “G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra.” is directed by Stephen Sommers.
