Springfield, the capital of the great State of Illinois. It was the place Abraham Lincoln came to in 1831 to being his law practice and later his political career, sitting in the legislature there as part of the General Assembly. Of course, Lincoln is not the only great Springfieldianite to contribute positively to the fabric of American society. The Flower City was also home to Civil War general and later President Ulysses S. Grant, founder of General Foods Marjorie Merriweather Post, and the famed frontman for Morris Day and the Time Morris Day. But now the reputation of the City of Springfield is forever tarnished as Mayor J. Michael Houston has given the keys to the city to Cobra Commander. Yes, that Cobra Commander. (more…)
This is our first look at the “COBRA Strikes” featurette from the G.I. Joe: Retaliation DVD. Jon Chu, the director, talks about his vision for Cobra Commander and about the ultimate execution of the character’s portrayal from costume to the little on-screen details.
Hit the jump for the video.
The first full trailer for G.I.Joe: Retaliation has hit the net and it looks . . .
All the bells and whistles that belong in a good G.I.Joe story are there:
Snake Eyes – Check!
RoadBlock – Check!
Scarlet – Check!
Jinx – Check!
Duke – Check!
Explosions, Guns, Ninjas – Check!
Cobra doing the nasty stuff – Check!
That is the WHITE HOUSE flying COBRA flags up there. The Rock playing Roadblock is genius. He knows how to deliver the action one liners that we’ll all howl with laughter at. Not to mention that Bruce Willis, the high king of the snarky action hero is the man G.I.Joe turns to when the going gets tough. When I saw the 20 second cut of this trailer the other day I was not impressed. This trailer will put my ass in the theater seat June 29th, 2012.
Let your fellow NerdBastards know what you think about this trailer and the G.I. Joe movie franchise as it stands now.
Once again there are people out there with skills I can only dream of since probably the only “artistic” thing I can do is cos-play as either Choji from Naruto or Yajirobe from Dragon Ball (Haha, fat joke). CubeDudes has a Flickr stream that showcases some individuals awesome skills at making LEGO Cube-esque characters and people we love, such as the Spider-man & Amazing Friends one shown above. Check some more awesome characters that other people has made and guess who is who after the jump and also check out CubeDudes stream (heh) out for 300+ more awesome cubed characters. (more…)
