The role of Spirit will now be played by Billy from Predator

Hasbro's reputation with fanboys just went up a few more notches. Check out this first look, thanks to, of a Target exclusive Spirit action figure from the new G.I. Joe: The Pursuit of Cobra line. It's modeled after Billy from the classic Arnold movie Predator. Now all I need is a little Arnold to recreate some classic scenes. This is just showing up in China, so it will be a few months before we see it on U.S. shelves. Color me awesome.
