TRU Attack on the Pit Headquarters GI Joe Battle Pack (Part 3)

Finally, part three of three of my review of this “Attack on the Pit” battle pack. And I have saved the best, or at least the more unique pieces for last. The first is the main piece of the set, the molepod. The set is built on the movie scene where Cobra uses molepods to […]

TRU Attack on the Pit Headquarters GI Joe Battle Pack (Part 2)

Last time I checked out the “Good Guys” of this set, Duke and Ripcord. Facing off against them are a NeoViper and Neo Viper Officer. And they are the subject of this weeks, GI Joe review. Probably one of the harder things for me to accept in GI Joe: Rise of Cobra were the Vipers. Not […]

TRU Attack on the Pit Headquarters GI Joe Battle Pack (Part 1)

Love it or hate it, “GI Joe: Rise of Cobra” brought a bunch of new figures to collectors. Because of the realistic nature of the film, most of the figures took on a more realistic look as well. The two Joe team members we live the film through are Duke and Ripcord. I’m sure they […]

Storm Shadow (Arctic Assault)

Arctic Assault Storm Shadow was released in 2009 as part of wave 3 of Hasbro’s G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra toy line. Even though the name is somewhat misleading, Storm Shadow did appear in the movie dressed (or undressed) like this in the movie, while in the arctic Cobra base, so technically, so the Artic Assault moniker is correct.

Arctic Assault Snake Eyes

Since this is a movie inspired figure, the silent commando dispenses with the black ensemble he normally wears pretty much everywhere in comic books and cartoons, and instead comes attired with proper cold weather garments.

Shipwreck GI Joe Rise of Cobra

Shipwreck is one of the characters I was really surprised didn’t make the cut for GI Joe: Rise of Cobra. His snarky attitude made him a fan favorite in the animated and comic book versions of Joe. (Flash was the other one I was expecting to see in action in the film.) While the vintage […]

Rex “The Doctor” Lewis

Ever since Episode One of Star Wars came out, I’ve made an effort to avoid as many spoilers for a film as I can without going out of my way. I really wanted to like “GI Joe: Rise of Cobra” before I saw it. But I had my doubts. As such, I really didn’t get […]

Armored Panther w/Sgt. Thunderblast

Normally the amount of suspension of disbelief required for me to accept the existence of an attack helicopter the size of a compact car proves too much, but, What about tanks the size of compact cars?…

Snake Eyes (Paris Pursuit)

Snake Eyes (Paris Pursuit) is arguably among the coolest figures from the movie line, even though if it’s not the most pose-able of the bunch, and it succeeds in providing a refreshing new look for the character.

Errex Score: 95/100

After getting the previous version of Duke (the Desert Ambush version), I was not too interested on picking up this one too, but after seeing it in person, I decided to take the plunge and get it.

Cobra Elite Viper

As of this writing, I haven’t watched “GI Joe: Rise of Cobra” yet. I will, I just haven’t had a chance yet. Overall, the movie line of GI Joe figures has grown on me. However, the nearest Wal-Mart reduced their prices on the standard figures to $6. That makes me like them a whole lot […]

I’m really excited to introduce this guest review. Errex is a long time TVFT forum contributor with a pretty extensive collection. Kicking off what I hope will be a great series of reviews, Errex is showing off the Desert Ambush Duke from GI Joe: Rise of Cobra. Take it away: Right off the bat, I […]

GI Joe Pit Commando

If you have read any of my other GI Joe reviews, you would know I’m a sucker for accessories. Frequently, my selection revolves around how full a blister is rather that the exact Joe character. Stalker was a cool dude, but a single rifle on the card didn’t appeal to me. The Baroness figure from […]
