G.I. JOE Classic Cartoon Series:
(Additional Episodes Live Streaming Now for Free and available on the Hasbro YouTube Channel)
Fans were so excited about the recently shared episodes from the G.I. JOE classic cartoon series that Hasbro is releasing another set of episodes. Starting today at 12pm ET / 9am PT, a 24-hour live stream on the Hasbro YouTube Channel will feature the 15 previously released episodes, as well as 15 additional classic episodes that come in story arcs such as the fan-favorite “Arise Serpentor, Arise.” All 30 episodes, featuring iconic characters from the epic ‘80s animated series that inspired the upcoming “Snake Eyes: G.I. JOE Origins” film and the G.I. JOE Classified Series, will continue to be available on the Hasbro YouTube Channel following the live stream for fans to enjoy.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: I LOVED the original G.I. Joe 12″ action figures and when they made the smaller scale ones under the “A Real American Hero” banner I was over the moon. I collected them religiously and still likely have a stockpile in a box somewhere in my storage unit. I also was an avid reader of the comic book series for at least the first 100 issues and yeah I still have those as well. Snake Eyes was probably my favorite of the Joes but at the end of the day I leaned towards the forces of Cobra Command because those characters were off the chain. The price point for this figure isn’t bad at all and I’d like to secure one for my collection. What do you collectors of this kind of stuff think about it? Chime in down below.
