G.I.-JOE (1987) Coming to Blu-Ray

The good G.I. JOE movie is now hitting Blu-Ray. Brian Ward, Shout! Factory’s DVD producer, tweeted:

“So the print’s in excellent condition. Looks like we’ll be doing GI JOE: THE MOVIE on Blu-ray” and “…the end credits for GI JOE: THE MOVIE finally came in. Gonna have a complete HD transfer!”

I love the old G.I. JOE film. I already own a copy on DVD, but I would love to see it in HD!

Big Lob Finally Gets a Figure


I never knew that Big Lob was never made as a figure. I remember seeing the new figures from the film and being so excited. Especially for Tunnel Rat. Then I saw the film. He was so lame. However, his sport announcer, grenade lobbing, friend Big Lob was kinda cool. Big Lob is now the exclusive for the 2010 Official G.I. Joe Collector Club. You can get more info at

The best part is the statement that the film is “More Enjoyable Than TRANSFORMERS 2.” Well duh… That can’t be too hard to do. BEWARE OF SPOILERS (if you care)
