Welcome to the behind the scenes panel for G.I. Joe Retaliation, the hit blockbuster movie of
the summer next spring.
The panel will be a guided tour of how they put the movie together.
They are currently showing concept art of the vehicles. (Pics coming in a bit).
And now onto costumes. Not much to report here, just pics shown.
Weapons - Joe and Cobra will have different brands of weapons.
Now moving on to weapons of the movie.
All weapons used are real.
Wanted it to be more real and not look like laser guns.
Going over why people look the way they do.
A more comprehensive round up of what is being said/shown will be coming after the panel BTW. We only have one person there and it's hard to type and take pics at the same time. :)
Firefly is the "Bobba Fett" of the movie.
Redesign of Snake Eyes
Not good for Ray Park. Limited his movement.
Too hot, rubber suit made him lose weight on first film.
New suit done for movement, and to return the look to a more fan favorite incarnation.
Actors used real swords when fighting.
Real weapons with real training.
The Rock was very involved with his action figure.
Redid his figure to be more on point, and make the figure more buff.
And now, on to the questions...
No questions about delay of the movie
Why is Lady Jaye's hair so long in the movie?.......
No word back on that one from our team....
Got onto The RZA, and how awesome he is in the movie.
Really good costume, and impressive performance as Blind Master.
Lots of hidden gems for fans, more Cobra troops not seen yet.
That's about it, a full text wrap up of this panel will be up on HissTank.com later in the day. Next up, The Hasbro Panel. Check that out here: Joecon 2012 Hasbro Panel Live.
