Interestingly enough, all of the figures are shown with blank stands(seems like the same stands that came with the Amazon 4 pack) while Storm Shadow is pictured with an alternate unmasked head from the Paris Pursuit Storm Shadow figure. With these figures appearing up for auction now, it might not be much longer before these arrive to retailers in the US. Read on to check out the new images!
EDIT: An auction for Ultimate Snake Eyes has turned up, images have been attached! It appears that the head sculpt used is from the GI Joe Retaliation Ninja Duel Snake Eyes in lieu of the new head sculpt that was shown previously at JoeCon/Toy Fair.

Thanks to wujialiang for posting up images of his Custom Chrome Blue STEEL CRUSHER!
The STEEL CRUSHER Armor Plated Vehicle (A.P.V.) tears through the Paris streets on a mission of destruction: to release the nanomite weapon and destroy the Eiffel Tower! The NITRO-VIPER blasts through traffic at top speed and smashes past obstacles in his way, but he can’t shake the G.I.JOE team that’s determined to stop him.

Just when you thought everything but the SDCC 2013 exclusives have all been revealed, comes a new item, spotted by our sponsor DorkSideToys! By way of Amazon comes a listing for a
GI Joe Retaliation Ultimate Gift Set
This Special Edition Ultimate Gift Set has everything you need for a truly spectacular showdown between the special-ops allies of G.I. JOE and their ninja arch-enemies! Pit your ROADBLOCK and NUNCHUK figures against your COBRA COMMANDER and SLICE figures! Will two masters of hand-to-hand combat be able to defend the globe against the leaders of the evil COBRA organization and the evil RED NINJAS? It's all up to you!
It isn't known if any of the figures in this set use all new tooling or if they're mere repaints mixed with some kitbashed figures. Despite Cobra Commanders's limited screentime in GI Joe Retaliation, there is still demand for a screen-accurate figure. This is likely a set planned for Fall/Winter(as with Hasbro's previous "Ultimate Gift Sets"), so we may get a 1st look at SDCC. Stay tuned.

Military.com is sharing an exclusive sneak peek look at the DVD and Blu-Ray release of G. I. Joe: Retaliation.

The clip cannot be embedded; you have to visit the site to watch it.
More info about the release is available, after the jump.
We've heard previously that only e-tailers and Toys R Us opted to carry the highly anticipated and long awaited GI Joe Eaglehawk. However, things have changed, as Target has joined the band of retailers willing to carry the Eaglehawk!
Thanks to JamesBenjamin we have confirmation that the Eaglehawk will retail for $39.99 at Target. In addition, we have the DCPI# and look-up link!
It's not very often that we get to see the designs created behind the scenes for movies. Today we get to see GI Joe Retaliation designs created by Cunningham Industrial Design. To say that there's a lot to see here would be an understatement. More on the work by CID:
Cunningham was initially hired by Paramount to design the new Cobra Hiss Tank, which included blue-sky conceptual development, multiple design iterations, and close collaboration with the vehicle Art Director and Production Designer.
Several constraint systems were in play for this project including operational feasibility, as the tank was constructed on an existing treaded vehicle base, cinematic considerations put forth by the Director, and marketing requirements from Hasbro. Other vehicle concepts included helicopters, fast-attack tanks, and airplane interiors.
When the production moved to New Orleans, he worked extensively with the Property Master to develop dozens of props used in the film including; briefcases, firearms,swords, grenades, soft goods, insect drones, and cosmetics. A fun and diverse experience with an extremely talented group of people.
There are numerous versions of the HISS Tank shown. The Retaliation HISS Tank toy bears some resemblance to 1, if not a few, of CID's designs. In addition to the HISS Tank, the following are also shown:
Zartan's Display System
We've mirrored these images because...like Cobra Commander, we want them all! Read on to check it out.
The battle only gets bigger when you add this high-tech Heetseek Missile System weapon accessory to the mix! Give the good guys a fight they won’t forget when you put your SCRAP-IRON and NEO-VIPER action figures behind the stowable programming console and get ready to start “blasting”.
Featuring an elevating and swiveling, launcher this “missile” system is already a serious threat — but considering it changes from stationary mode to mobile mode and has retractable stabilizer legs, this piece of “firepower” is a mobile menace!
Though the recently “revealed” Official Spot for G. I. Joe: Retaliation Home Release doesn’t say when we’ll see the Blu-Ray, HISSTANKer Flint Faireborn is bringing us the OneSheet which tells us when we’ll get to buy it.
According to the Sheet, G. I. Joe: Retaliation Blu-Ray will release this June 30th (for the retailers) and the special features will include:
G. I. Joe: Declassified – An eight part in-depth look at the making of G. I. Joe: Retaliation.
Many of you may have already enjoyed G. I. Joe: Retaliation on the big screen. The movie’s run at the box office is nearly over. G. I. Joe 2 has settled down for a worldwide gross of $357 Million with $120 Million from US and the rest from other countries.
Now it’s time for the home release. Official G. I. Joe You Tube page has been updated with a trailer for the Blu-Ray, DVD and Digital release of the movie. There’s nothing new in the trailer, but hopefully we might see the deleted scenes on the Home Release itself.
Looks like the original writers of "David Elliot and Paul Lovett" have filed a lawsuit against Paramount, MGM, Hasbro and producer Lorenzo Di Bonaventura seeking $23 million for work on "G.I. Joe: Retaliation," which was allegedly taken without credit or compensation.
