Last summer we previewed the first phase of a new, retro style line of GI Joe action figures for fans of the 1980s animated GI Joe: A Real American Hero series and the corresponding reboot of GI Joe toys.  The first wave of G.I. Joe ReAction figures–the Kenner-style 3.75-inch figures with less articulation joints than the originals but now with better sculpts–included Snake Eyes, Scarlett, Baroness, Cobra Commander, Destro, Kwinn, G.I. Joe infantry (in three skin colors), and Cobra Troopers (in three skin colors and two costume styles)–for 15 variants in all.  Get ready to add Storm Shadow, Roadblock, Roadblock PSA, Flint, Snake Eyes, Mutt PSA, Duke, Lady Jaye, Bazooka, Major Bludd, Gamemaster, Navy Blue Shirt Sailors, Shocktroopers, and ready-for-battle Cobra Commander, Baroness, and Firefly to your collection, all available for pre-order now at the above links at Entertainment Earth. 

Take a look at our preview of the new line of figures and packaging below.

Captain Flint

Capt Flint in command

The borg flag is flying at half-mast today in honor of our support staff member Flint, who passed away Saturday at 15 years old (or 107 depending on if you follow that dog years thing).

Flint was an avid cosplayerhound who was always happy to pose for our photo needs here at borg.com.  He was also our pack’s alpha and a great leader and friend to his siblings.

Super Flint and Grandma

And Flint made for a perfect Krypto.

You may remember we celebrated his 15th birthday this past May here at borg.com.  Not bad for a breed with a 12-year life expectancy (coonhounds, not cosplayerhounds).

Day 2 Flint D cleaned

Flint was a regular for nearly a decade at the Kansas City Renaissance Festival.

Flint ren fest

He’ll be missed by his sisters Jade and Jasmine and all his family and friends.

Back to normal programming tomorrow.  Thanks for reading.
