WATCH: Hasbro puts GI Joe episodes online to watch for free

April 3rd, 2020 by Marc Comments

So while we all have to sit in the house, Hasbro has stepped up to give us something fun to while away the isolation hours.

They have dropped three of the biggest over-arching story arcs from the original GI Joe series (yes, that’s The Action Force to my UK pals) online for free and for you to enjoy.

These are:

The M.A.S.S. Devices Miniseries
“The M.A.S.S. Device, Part 1: The Cobra Strikes”
The M.A.S.S. Device, Part 2: Slave of the Cobra Master”
“The M.A.S.S. Device, Part 3: The Worms of Death”
“The M.A.S.S. Device, Part 4: Duel in the Devil’s Cauldron”
“The M.A.S.S. Device, Part 5: A Stake in the Serpent’s Heart”

The Revenge of Cobra Miniseries
“The Revenge of Cobra, Part 1: In the Cobra’s Pit”
“The Revenge of Cobra, Part 2: The Vines of Evil”
“The Revenge of Cobra, Part 3: The Palace of Doom”
The Revenge of Cobra, Part 4: Battle on the Roof of the World”
“The Revenge of Cobra, Part 5: Amusement Park of Terror”

The Pyramid of Darkness Miniseries (Beginning of Season 1)
“The Pyramid of Darkness, Part 1: The Further Adventures of G.I. Joe”
“The Pyramid of Darkness, Part 2: Rendezvous in the City of the Dead”
“The Pyramid of Darkness, Part 3: Three Cubes to Darkness”
“The Pyramid of Darkness, Part 4: Chaos in the Sea of Lost Souls”
“The Pyramid of Darkness, Part 5: Knotting Cobra’s Coils”

As of yet, I don’t know if more are coming, but there’s plenty to get your teeth into here for a start.

Click the video below and get into one of the 80s’ best animated shows.

We’re not sure if Hasbro intends to keep adding episodes in waves, or if this is just a way to entice fans to pick up the complete series of G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero. But we’re sure plenty of you G.I. Joe fans haven’t seen these episodes in years, so enjoy them now. If you want, you can pick up the entire series from Amazon for $56.95, but you’ll be waiting awhile before you get it.

G.I. JOE: A Real American Hero follows an elite team of soldiers as they battle the evil Cobra organization. These heroes thwart the COBRA’s desire for world domination at every turn, cleverly stopping them from controlling the weather, creating unstoppable weapons, and genetically engineering super-warriors.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
