SDCC 2010 Hasbro G.I. Joe Panel

Okay the fun is about to begin. No live cast of the panel, but will upoload video immediately afterward. Stay tuned for live updates from this panel and immediately after, Transformers!

G.I. Joe: Renegades

  • Scarlet starts with taking troops on a mission to "Corbra" labs
  • The Joes are accused of crime they don’t commit and go on the run
  • Focused on a core group of Joes and Cobra
  • Just showed a video with looks at all the main characters. Will uploaded after
  • Design didn’t really thrill, people only got excited about a few
  • Cobra Commander looked horrible IMHO
  • Trying to stick the old school design, but add a little fantasy
  • Pretty much an origins story of the characters
  • Bringing back some of the old voice actors
  • Just showed one minute of clips from the show (ENI guy got shut down, but I got it all. Stay tuned)
  • It is a kid’s show. Appropriate for children, but storytelling will be more adult
  • Essentially a G.I. Joe year one
  • Breaker will be main character
  • "Real life" Baroness just asked why her glasses keep getting replaced with sunglasses. Answer there will lotsa glasses in the show
  • Tomax and Xamot will appear in the show. Both meeting them and getting recruited by Cobra
  • Here comes the classic Joe/Transformer crossover question… Standard answer, it may happen, nothing right now
  • Finally a toy question, will toys accompany the show? No confirmation, but "The show is owned by Hasrbo." Best quote yet
  • Roadblock and Heavy Duty to be featured heavily
  • Almost every fan favorite character is planned on premiering at some point.
  • One thing you have to do is go check out the HUB Experience

    Breaker will be the main character? Really? Wow, didn’t see that one coming. I still have high hopes for this ‘toon. I think they’ve had enough time to make a lot of mistakes which they won’t repeat again. The “on the run” concept is kind of cool. In a way, it kind of ties into #156 – same kind of scenario. Thanks for doing all of this, man!

    @jaime That’s what the fuck I was saying. Need to go back and read the description. May I just wasn’t paying attention. Unfortunately the animation look crappy too. Posting videos tonight!

    @Shane Sorry, that should have been ‘a main character’ not the main character. Damn typos. I never got a chance to review them. I’m just barely recovering now, 3 days later.
