In the deregulated 1980s, every popular children’s toy got its own movie. And then starting in the 2000s every popular children’s toy from the same era got its own movie AGAIN, with some results better than others.

Go, Joe! Renegade Game Studios announced today they’ve acquired the GI Joe license and intend to use it. First up is the GI Joe Roleplaying Game.
