The Baroness Has Arrived!

Oh My God! Hell has frozen over!

Hasbro has announced plans to release a special edition figure for the San Diego Comic Con latter this year. G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra comes out on August 7th this year.

The lovely BARONESS in all her black leather bitchness. Photo of Sienna Miller and next to it, the prototype Barnoness action figure.

This 12" tall figure is of actress Sienna Miller. Quoting from the article: "features a soft goods trench coat and body suit as well as multiple signature weapons. The figure comes with an R. Black designed “COBRA recruiting poster” featuring BARONESS and features the “COBRA Office of Propaganda” seal of approval. The figure and poster are packaged together in a premium faux-leather box with embossed foil. "

I like that last part about the COBRA Office of Propaganda seal of approval. If only I had the bucks to go to such a convention. Eventually, Hasbro will have to release this figure to regular retail outlets - in different packaging of course. And when they do - I'll be getting one for sure.
