I’m setting a bad precedent doing two consecutive weekend spotlights, but you guys don’t really mind do you? I mailed off a check to the GI Joe Collector Club this week and that got me thinking about last year’s figure, Dial-Tone. Turns out he never made it onto the review schedule.
I got really into 25th Joes a few years ago. The figures weren’t always perfect, but with a healthy dollop of nostalgia, they got the job done. When the movie figures eclipsed the anniversary, I bought some. The verdict? Better figures, but not better designs. This weekend, I bought a Joe that had it all.
Who thought that Tommy from 3rd Rock would actually play a convincing Cobra Commander? Not I. But I was wrong. So, after the movie was over, I went out for an action figure of the Commander in his newest duds. But none were to my liking, until now. Say hello to the new face of Cobraaaaa!

When my TRU finally received the Pursuit of Cobra HISS Tank, I had to have it. My year-long wait was finally over. But there was another vehicle at TRU that day. It had a new name and a new driver, but I knew it from my childhood. I had to have the Wolf Hound too.
A little over a year ago, the IAT crew trekked to Kansas City to cover the annual G.I. Joe convention, Joe Con. During the Hasbro panel, the convention room was treated to a surprise: the unveiling of the brand new H.I.S.S. Tank. After a year, I finally got a chance to own one.
I was at Toys R Us the other day when the Toy Gods smiled down upon me. Noisy found a TRU Exclusive Batman, but, as usual, they had nothing I had gone there for (still can’t find that Arcee). Since they were resetting I walked around hoping for a surprise.
I was hoping to get to this guy sooner, but the weather didn’t want to agree. The way I see it, it’s more fun to review a G.I. Joe in its natural environment. No, not the toy shelf. Joes were made for play. Figures, accessories, vehicles – all were made to
