835442 Special Ops Vehicles $24.99
913230 Special Ops Tomahawk $42.99

Special ops could refer to the G.I.Joe social game launched last year, or could refer to something else. With Starter packs and small price, it seems likely there is some kind of game element to these listings.   The most exciting item is the Tomahawk, a classic helicopter many have sought after since Joe returned to shelves in the early 2000’s.  Perhaps we will learn more at ToyFair!

one thought that quickly comes to mind, is hasbro really launching, Kre-0’s, minifigs, the regular movie line, and this special ops all at the same time?  Share your thoughts on our forums here.
