G.I. Joe 30th Anniversary

Actor Patrick Stewart Gets Quizzed On G.I. Joe

patrick-stewart1 It's always wonderful to hear Sir Patrick Stewart talk.

It so happens that National Public Radio interviewed Sir Stewart to ask him about G. I. Joe.

SAGAL: Here we go. Now G.I. Joe - I'm sure you've been in the United States long enough to know what these are. These are these eight inch dolls that look like soldiers, G.I. Joes, yes?

STEWART: Yeah, yeah, I know what they are.


SAGAL: I'm sorry. I need to shrivel now for a bit.

STEWART: No I didn't mean that to be patronizing.

SAGAL: Too late.

STEWART: I do know what they are and I even know what G.I. stands for.

You can read and listen to the rest of the Interview where Sir Patrick Stewart answers three questions about G. I. Joe brand at National Public Radio.

New Hasbro Trademarks Hint Upcoming G. I. Joe Figures

USPTOHasbro_1285763982 Whenever Hasbro apply for a Trademark at the United States Patent & Trademark Office, it usually means we get to see a toy real soon. While there may not have been many G. I. Joe Trademarks recently, Transformers Trademarks are proving this point.

HISSTANK finds out that USPTO has received new trademark applications from Hasbro on 8th November, 2012. Breaking a long silenceÖ itís G. I. Joe.

First Trademark is Heavy Duty (Trademark Number: 85774331). It appears as though this may very well be a G. I. Joe: Retaliation trademark. But canít tell at the moment.

The next three however, we can clearly tell what they are forÖ

ACTION MARINE (Trademark Number: 85774333)

ACTION SAILOR (Trademark Number: 85774334)

ACTION PILOT (Trademark Number: 85774335)

... No doubt it's the Hasbro 12 Inch Line.

All four trademarks are classified under : "Toy action figures and accessories for use therewith" and you can take a look at the documents at USPTO by clicking on the Trademark Numbers above.

A G. I. Joe Social Media Game Arriving Soon - G. I. Joe: Special Ops

G-I-Joe-Special-Ops-Destro If you are a fan of Marvelís Avengers Alliance a.k.a Avengers Assemble on Facebook as I am, then you are in for a treat. USA Today is reporting that we will be getting a G. I. Joe Social Media Game along with the upcoming G. I. Joe: Retaliation.

Named G. I. Joe: Special Ops and created by Syfy, this game will feature arena-based action and strategy, plus a battalion of heroes and villains to choose from, including Joe teamers Snake Eyes, Duke and Flint, as well as Cobra baddies such as Cobra Commander, Destro, the Baroness and Firefly.

"The world will be populated by the heavy hitters from our lore," says Derryl DePriest, Hasbro's global brand vice president for G.I. Joe. The team at Hasbro that worked with Syfy "really understands the power G.I. Joe has with an audience of now-grown men who grew up with G.I. Joe, loved the characters, loved the entertainment behind it, and saw how that translated into a great game experience."

Gameplay will take place in an enclosed battlefield, with a handful of G.I. Joe or Cobra characters you control with friends or the computer. Your mission is to cross the arena and wipe out your enemies, with matches lasting from five to 15 minutes each.

Walmart Listings Reveal Canceled Wave Featuring Modern Flint, Kwinn, Data Viper And More

GI-Joe-Flint The Walmart computers have been glimpses into "what could've been" in the past, showing listings for items that were planned, then subsequently canceled. For example, years back, they had a listing for a Transformers Alternators Cadillac XLR Megatron. That was just one of many other notable items that were listed but never saw the light of day at retail.

HissTank boards member ViperCommando has given us another glimpse into what could've been via the Walmart computers once more. This time we have a list of figures planned for the GI Joe 30th Anniversary line:
You may recall that Flint was actually mentioned in the Toy Fair 2011 GI Joe Press Release. Meanwhile, the Night Viper and Crimson Guard were both moved into the GI Joe Retaliation line.

As for Kwinn, Data Viper and Modern Flint, who knows? Since the Crimson Guard and Night Viper got moved into the Retaliation line, will the 3 unaccounted for figures eventually see the light of day as well?

GI Joe Is A 2011 Holiday Best Seller

GI-Joe While iPads, video games, and all things electronic seem to be all the rage with kids, toys based on iconic/retro brands are said to be making a come back. According to The Street, GI Joe is one of Hasbro's best sellers during this holiday season:

Toy makers and distributors have long been aware of what Hasbro(HAS_) refers to as the power of a "portfolio of iconic bands." Among that company's best-sellers were some very old and recognizable names: Nerf, G.I. Joe, Strawberry Shortcake and My Little Pony. The company has also benefited from the ever-popular line of Star Wars-related action figures and yet another wave of movie-fueled demand for Transformers.
