Joe movie looked ridiculous, just wait until you see the first trailer for the Steve Oedekerk Stretch Armstrong movie.  Stretch Armstrong?  I remember that guy! “This is a new well from which to draw intellectual properties that bring a pre-awareness and nostalgia,” Schneir said. “They are drawing filmmakers who find a real emotional connection and resonance, and this is proving to be a compelling driver for motion pictures.” The toy from the 70’s also featured a monster, a dog, and an evil twin brother.  The last time a Stretch Armstrong movie tried to get made,…

SDCC’08: Hasbro Unveils Ton of Toys

I’m sure it isn’t a literal ton of toys – well, maybe it is, I haven’t weighed the average action figure lately – in any case, Hasbro as announced several new toy lines at the San Diego Comic-Con.

It’s the thing I hate hearing most when I’m hanging with my peeps in Vegas, but for G.I. Joe fans, the name might send shivers down your spine. Two photos of the character have been released on-line. We have one after the jump.
