G.I. Joe Renegades

G. I. Joe Animated Series To Return As Kre-O?

mike-vogel-hasbro-studios-slice Mike Vogel; Vice President of Development for Hasbro Studios spoke with Collider regarding his experience working at The Hub (rumored to rebrand as Hub Network) and what’s coming ahead.

Mr. Vogal was a name behind G. I. Joe: Renegades. He pioneered the teams behind G. I. Joe Renegades, Transformers: Prime and My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic. However, Renegades is no more. But “Is G. I. Joe gone for good from the tele?” it’s a question we all have as Joe fans.

At the interview when asked “Have you also tried to develop a KREO animated series?” Mike Vogel said…

“I think that does sound really interesting, and I can neither confirm or deny that there’s a presentation somewhere that shows exactly how we would do that, and that it would be super fun and exciting. But, I can say that it’s really funny.”

With the recent success of Kre-O, we may see G. I. Joe return as an Animated Series based on Kre-O. Only time can tell… but we may not have to wait that long. Mr. Vogal said they have big plans for this year’s San Diego Comic Con 2013.

“Oh, I think we started thinking about what we could show in San Diego about a month after we left San Diego last year. We definitely have some very cool plans for Comic-Con. We have some big news on some of our big brands coming out. I can’t say what it is because I don’t want to spoil the surprise. Comic-Con is a lot of fun for us. Hasbro has been upping their game significantly in the past few years, now that we have so much great entertainment, in addition to our great toys, and I think this year is going to be no different. We’re going to have some really, really cool stuff for the fans.”

Keep your fingers crossed people, San Diego Comic Con is not that far away.

Hub 2013 - 2014 Slate Revealed: No G. I. Joe

G-I-Joe-Renegades-G-I-Joe-Retaliation-Hasbro-Discovery-Hub-Animated-Series Hasbro-Discovery Hub Television Network has revealed their 2013 - 2014 Program Slate and sadly... there is NO new G. I. Joe related programming.

Previously, we were told that G. I. Joe: Renegades is on hiatus and it might pick up where G. I. Joe: Retaliation will leave off. However, when the Hub 2012- '13 slate was revealed, fans were disappointed that there weren't any evidence to prove this (mind you, Retaliation was suppose to release June 29 last year).

Further cementing the fact that G. I. Joe: Renegades is never coming back, Hub 2013- '14 plans revealed nothing G. I. Joe. Most of the Hasbro's popular franchises are making a return or making new entrances but the same cannot be said about one of Hasbro's oldest franchises; G. I. Joe.

What will the future hold for the G. I. Joe franchise on television? Would the popularity of G. I. Joe: Retaliation trigger a need for a new Animated Series? Is G. I. Joe gone for good from television? Have a healthy discussion over at HISSTANK's "G.I. Joe Renegades and Animation Discussion" forum.

G. I. Joe: Renegades One Sheet Reveals Possible Future?

G-I-Joe-Renegades During the days of “pre Hasbro-Discovery Hub era”, selected members from News Sites were granted Press access to learn more about [then upcoming] Hub initiative.

Today we decided to take a look at updated One Sheets for popular Hub TV Shows. (In the entertainment industry, a One-Sheet or One Sheet is a single document that summarizes a product for publicity and sales)

Something caught our inquisitive eyes; each sheet carried an expiry date for each TV Show. While mega popular shows such as Transformers: Prime and My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic carries “TBD” (To-Be-Determined) as the expiry date, G. I. Joe: Renegades however is carrying a fixed expiry date of September 17, 2015.

Now, this discovery as you can assume, can be thought both ways; either we will get around 2 seasons more OR G. I. Joe: Renegades is gone for good. It’s nice to see that we got 3 more years till expiry, but lack of an expiry date on other TV Shows while Renegades carrying one, can also be looked upon as bad.

You can take a look at the One Sheet and the Character Description Sheet after the jump.

Hasbro-Studios-Netflix-G-I-Joe-Renegades-Transformers-Prime-My-Little-Pony-Friendship-Is-Magic Deadline is reporting that Hasbro Studios has made a deal with Netflix to stream their popular TV Shows including G. I. Joe: Renegades.

With the deal, we will be able to enjoy the first season of Renegades and other cartoons such as Transformers: Prime and My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic.

G. I. Joe: Renegades was placed on hiatus after a hit Season 1. Fans were left disappointed with this decision. However, it is said that Renegades will return revamped with a story more close to the G. I. Joe Live Action Movie Series. But, no news is yet heard of such a project in motion.

Deadline says…
“LA-based Hasbro Studios has reached a multiyear deal across several platforms with Netflix for 10 television franchises Transformers Prime, My Little Pony, Pound Puppies, G.I. Joe: Renegades and The Adventures of Chuck & Friends are now available to instantly watch on Netflix. JEM & The Holograms, Transformers: Generation 1, G.I.

Do You Want To See A GI JOE RENEGADES ALMANAC?

Transformers-Animated-GI-Joe Ah yes, GI Joe Renegades, it's as if we hardly knew ye. With only 1 season, this series managed to have a rather devoted following here, 1 vehicle released and figures in 3 waves of the GI Joe 30th Anniversary line. Nonetheless, it is a series fans miss, and 1 that many recognized as having lots of potential.

Another series that ended earlier than planned, was Transformers Animated. While IDW managed to release a few comics after the cartoon ended, there was something more that came in the form of Jim Sorenson. Sorenson wrote the Transformers Animated Allspark Almanacs, full color books printed on gloss paper. The 2nd volume had numerous homages to GI Joe A Real American Hero, and there were even some homages in the cartoon itself(documented here).

Sorenson is no stranger to GI Joe. He is working on a GI Joe Ark Style Book, with way more material to pull from than his Transformers Ark Books. In addition, Jim Sorenson is a fan of GI Joe Renegades. The description of Allspark Almanac 2 states:

The AllSpark Almanac II captures the magic of the most whimsical TRANSFORMERS series ever with a wondrous examination of this amazing universe. This volume is packed with behind-the-scenes sketches, interesting facts, production artwork, and musings from the characters themselves. Relive the thrill of the final season of Animated and learn what might have been had the show continued. Hard-core fans and neophytes alike will find this an essential tome. You won't want to miss it!

What if we had a GI Joe Renegades Almanac with the following? *Tweaked from the quoted passage above*:

The GI JOE RENEGADES ALMANAC captures the magic of the most whimsical GI JOE series ever with a wondrous examination of this amazing universe. This volume is packed with behind-the-scenes sketches, interesting facts, production artwork, and musings from the characters themselves. Relive the thrill of the only season of Renegades and learn what might have been had the show continued. Hard-core fans and neophytes alike will find this an essential tome. You won't want to miss it!

So the question is, do you want a GI JOE RENEGADES ALMANAC? Let's hear it Renegades fans!

No G.I.Joe On The Hub's 2012-2013 Schedule

The-Hub-Logo---HissTank This past Friday, The Hub, a partnership between Hasbro and the Discovery Channel, announced their line up for 2012 & early 2013. Sadly, no G.I.Joe related programs are listed on the roster.

Although The Hub will continue to air programs such as Transformers Prime and air new shows like Littlest Pet Shop and Kaijudo Rise of the Duel Master, there's no site of our favorite 3 3/4" Modern Military Figure.

Although there have been rumors that there was to be a second season of G.I.Joe Renegades and other rumors of a new cartoon that picks up where G.I.Joe Retaliation leaves off...it doesn't look like either have any foundation.

HissTank Renegades Storm Shadow Photo Shoot

Renegades-Storm-Shadow-017 Check out this photo shoot of the recently released Renegades Storm Shadow. Yes, it's been out for a bit and seen before, but we have given the figure another run and hopefully some additional looks at what it can do.

This figure, when configured right, is a perfect companion to the Snake Eyes from last years POC line, and together are as close to "Masterpiece" level as we've gotten in the 3 3/4th scale. If you see one, pick it up!

Creators Saddened Over The Fate Of G. I. Joe: Renegades

G-I-Joe-Renegades_1301942529 G. I. Joe: Renegades was an extremely creative take on the franchise we know and love. Going beyond the usual theme, Renegades established a unique universe of its own… much like Transformers: Prime.

And this is exactly why the Creative Team of Transformers: Prime is saddened over the fate of G. I. Joe: Renegades.

At today’s New York Comic Con 2011 Transformers: Prime Panel, Jeff Kline who is the executive producer of both shows told everyone that the creators are always afraid of cancellation. They never expected this to happen to Renegades when they thought they were doing great things with the show.

On a happy note, they did use the word "Hiatus" at the panel.

IGN has the coverage of the panel.
