Hasbro showed off their G.I. Joe line at their Toy Fair media event yesterday, including figures from the upcoming movie G.I. Joe Retailiation, Ultimate versions of old favorites, and even some KRE-O!
Regarding their G.I. Joe: Retaliation toys, there was not much new to truly unveil since Hasbro had the whole line out last year and all set for store shelves when Paramount decided at the 11th hour to push the highly anticipated film from May 2012 to March of 2013 for 3D conversion.
There still will be plenty of accessories, vehicles, and action figures depicting Dwayne Johnson as Roadblock, Bruce Willis as Joe Colton, plus everyone’s returning fan favorites Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow.
There will be a line of 3.75” figures with Ultimate versions of Cobra Commander (with both his hood and chrome faced helmet):
A re-designed Eagle Hawk Assault Chopper:
A 12-inch line of both the basic and movie figures:
And rounding out Hasbro’s G.I. Joe products at their Media Event was a selection of Joes from their KRE-O line:
