G.I.Joe: Retaliation JINX Figures Revealed!

Hasbro Just Unveiled Two SDCC Exclusive Kim Arashikage Figures for 2012

I'm officially dubbing this ZaranaGate.2.  I guess the crazy success of last year's SDCC Exclusive Zarana + Variant figures inspired this year's killer ninjas.  I realize we'll probably see a true movie version in the main retail line, so these will be nice counterparts to that figure.  Plus the G.I.Joe Collectors Club Jinx will be out this year, too, making this an extremely Jinx-Heavy year.  When it rains it pours!  Something to note is that they seem to officially calling her "Kim Arashikage" instead of her codename Jinx.  Perhaps they hit some trademark issues as so often happens with this kind of thing.  A quick google search found "Jinx" related to Pokemon, Zhu-Zhu Pets, and James Bond.  Who knows.  The only pics so far are small and oddly masked, but I can tell the figures will be awesome.
