Fort Worth, TX – October 23rd, 2014 – Fun Publications, Inc., licensee for Hasbro’s official G.I.

In a bit of departure from the past few years of hitting larger cities, this year’s Joe Con is hitting the state capital of the Land of Lincoln– Springfield, IL! I’m just going to go out on a limb here and speculate that the set will be focused on a possible invasion of Springfield as seen in the comics. At this point, who knows!
At least this admin is happy– Springfield is an hour drive away! Plus, it’s a much less expensive city than some of the venues chosen for the G.I. Joe Collector’s Convention in the past few years. This move could also be because the convention attendance size has dropped such that the con no longer can afford to book the larger cities.
