  • Time and time again, Cobra has been on the threshhold of global domination, only to be thwarted by G.I. Joe. Now the ruthless terrorist organization has a new ally, the alien race known as Cobra-La, led by the sinister Golobulus. Golobulus wants to steal the Joe's Broadcast Energy Transmitter in order to ripen space spores and mutate the people of Earth. When Duke is injured and the rest of the force immobilized, it's up to the new recruits to pick up the slack and save the world and the day.moreless

  • Not as smokin' hot as The Transformers: The Movie, but it's still good.

    • Sgt. Slaughter: We all go home or nobody goes home!

    • Sgt. Slaughter: You're goin' nowhere, space case. You're here 'cause you're an industrial strength foul-up! My job is to whip ya into shape, and I'm talkin' whipped! There are two ways outta my command - on your feet like a man! Or in a ditty bag. An itty, bitty ditty bag. Got it?! Falcon: Yes, sir!

    Notes (5)

    • Originally, Duke was supposed to have died after he got hit by Serpentor's snake. With the backlash of Optimus Prime's death in Transformers The Movie, the writers and animators quickly changed it to where Duke stops breathing and goes into a coma. This wasn't changed during the writing stage but in post production. B.J. Ward [Scarlett], Ed Gilbert [General Hawk] & Buster Jones [Doc] were called back in for new dialogue recording's of the changed lines.

    • Burgess Meredith ironically played Ernie Pyle in the 1945 movie The Story Of G.I. Joe.

    • One of the storyboarded scenes, that quickly died after the storyboard stage, was a "nude scene" involving Zarana at the pond. She would have disrobed and been briefly seen in the buff, Barbie doll style in terms of anatomical correctness.

    • During the Web Of Remembrance flashbacks, the sequence of the Cobra infantry soldiers running on foot, being chased by Joe vehicles, is stock footage taken from The Revenge Of Cobra.

    • Several scenes were storyboarded but never animated. One scene featured recurring character Hector Ramirez reporting from the UN building after the spores are launched into orbit. Another scene featured Jinx with her blindfold on and holding a sword, trying to stop the Thunder Machine from escaping with Serpentor. Falcon sees her and pushes her out of the way. She starts to argue with him but then they notice smoke coming from the stockade. The scene then leads into Falcon running into Hawk.

    Trivia (3)

    • When Serpentor is interrogating Falcon, he says 'If you won't answer me, you can answer Nemesis Enforcer!' Nemesis Enforcer doesn't speak, for crying out loud!

    • Goof: Notice as Lifeline is present and speaks when the Joe's are storing the B.E.T. at the maximum security facility but he had already left as part of Flint's team to search for Roadblock's unit.

    • Trivia: On the Japanese language Laser Disc, Duke's death scene was left intact.
