Update on G.I. Joe FSS & Joe Con 2015 Reviews

FSS Crimson Guard Immortal

Sigh… I hate this kind of post.  I really do.

Joe Con 2015 and G.I. Joe FSS reviews are coming.  Really.  I had photos shot for these reviews for weeks now and even have the web page built.  Joe Con 2015, Joe Con 2013, and the FSS reviews for Hit & Run, Alpine, Crimson Guard Immortal, Big Ben, and Frostbite are about 85% ready to go!

So, you might find yourself asking, what’s the holdup?

Between my current real-life job and some family obligations, I’ve just not had the time to sit down and really finish the writing.  Knock on wood I can sequester myself away this weekend for a bit and finalize my portion of the text.

However, I don’t want to leave folks hanging.  Below is a preview gallery of images from many of the G.I. Joe FSS and Joe Con 2015 reviews that will be hitting here soon.  Consider it a bit of a “mea culpa” for being so tardy.

 

JoeCon 2013: Exclusive and attendee bonus item revealed!

G.I. Joe Collector's Convention 2013

No time for fancy intros– we’ve got news from the 2013 G.I. Joe Collector’s Convention to discuss!

Lastly, Todd Jordan of KokomoToys shared this image of Lady Jaye:

So, what do we have here?

  • Night Force Specialists 2 pack (800)
  • Night Force FLAK w/ Steeler (800)
  • Carded Lady Jaye (1000)
  • Night Boomer (1000)
  • KRE-O Night Force 6 pack (1000)
  • KRE-O Parachute Hit-n-Run (500)

Lots of emphasis on KRE-O this year– more than I originally expected and the FLAK takes me completely by surprise!  I think many in the fandom expected the Night Boomer given the recent retooling of the Sky Striker.

I’ll be heading to Indy tomorrow so keep your eyes and ears on JBL for coverage of the 2013 Joe Con over the next few days.  It’ll be good to get back to one for the first item in nearly 4 years!
