Closer Look at the Bad Guys from G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra
Although we've all seen the Super Bowl TV spot for G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra, we remarkably still haven't seen a lot from the movie. More specifically, I'm talking about the "bad guys" from the movie. While a lot of various images from toys and toy boxes have popped up on the web over the last six months, I've been resistant in posting most of them because they were too low quality. However, a huge batch of toy photos from the on-going Toy Fair have popped up on Collider this weekend. And thankfully, some clear images of various Cobra members, including the Neo-Viper, Storm Shadow, and Zartan, have showed up.
Seen below, from left to right: Cobra Viper Commando, Neo-Viper, Storm Shadow, and Zartan, the Master of Disguise, played by Arnold Vosloo. As far as I know, these are the first clear images of any of these characters that we've seen in the wild and I actually think these guys look pretty damn cool. Thoughts?
Thanks again to our friends at Collider for posting all of these photos. If you're a fan of G.I. Joe or just curious, head over to that site, because they've got a huge batch of new Hasbro toys from the movie.
G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra is directed by big action filmmaker Stephen Sommers, of The Jungle Book, Deep Rising, The Mummy, The Mummy Returns, and Van Helsing previously. The screenplay was co-written by Stuart Beattie, of Collateral, Derailed, and 30 Days of Night previously, as well as Skip Woods, of Swordfish and Hitman previously. The movie is based on Hasbro's G.I. Joe line of toys that debuted in 1964. Paramount will premiere G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra in theaters everywhere on August 7th this year.
