A little while ago news broke about some upcoming G.I. Joe Nano Metalfigs Diecast Figures that Jada Toys is working on. Now we have additional details on the tiny metal Joe and Cobra figures, straight from a recent Jada Toys podcast which features a few members of the Jada team discussing G.I. Joe, in addition to other topics like Minecraft, Dungeons & Dragons, and more.
Although brief, the news bits on the Jada Joes reveals that there will be 6 characters to start (Snake Eyes, Storm Shadow, Duke, Cobra Commander, Destro and Baroness), while paying homage to the original ARAH (A Real American Hero) 3 3/4″ action figure line. The packaging will feature throwback styling in tribute to the original figures, with all 6 metal figures included in the 6-pack. The targeted price will be less than $10 retail, and we can expect these to release around the same time as the Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins movie.
Take a look at the first 6 Nano Metalfigs below (the coffee beans bring a bit of humour to the pics with a “Cup of Joe” theme, while showing the true scale of the figures in comparison to demonstrate how tiny they really are.
