The 2012 G.I. Joe Collector’s Convention sets featuring the Oktober Guard sold out in near record time. Those who were hoping to snag a non-attending Homefront Heroes set had to either be incredibly lucky to have been online when they were listed or have ties in the Springfield underground. Realizing that this rapid [...]
While I wasn’t able to attend the Con in person this year, JBL has had a lot of help from “on the scene” photographer Photonut! However, he’s also got some help– Justin from Hunter PR has sent along these “official images” of items revealed at the 2012 Hasbro Convention presentation.
One of the biggest [...]
This is easily one of my favorite parts of the entire Joe Con experience. Seriously– I LOVE the con diorama and every year that I’m fortunate enough to attend I snap far more pictures than I should of it. There’s just something about seeing all of the figures that you’re anticipating purchasing in action– [...]
Photonut is a MACHINE down at the con this year– cranking out images far faster than a certain “at home admin” can post them. However, he came through with some great pics of the Day 1 Retaliation offerings from the Hasbro case.
Stay tuned for his post-Hasbro panel images later today. The next wave [...]
More images from Photonut– this time of the parachute drop and the Cobra Stealth Paratrooper figures! It’s always a great way to start the convention– taking small plastic figures and chucking them off of a roof. (I can recall the last time I was at a Joe Con in NOLA. I swung my arm [...]

Joe Retaliation, the GIJCC found itself with a HUGE gap in its convention schedule. However, the traditional parachute drop was added back and figures were produced [...]
Photonut and Madmac braved the line for the Club store last night and were able to snag the convention exclusives for this year. Being the Joe fans that they are those items were immediately freed from their plastic prisons and pictures were snapped! Here’s what they brought back:
Annihilator 3-Pack (LE 650)
Madmac41 is down on the scene at the 2012 Joe Con in New Orleans and has sent on this information regarding the 2012 Convention Exclusives. (Thanks to his Golden Ticket.)

The following email was sent out to Club Members earlier this afternoon:
It took just a little over 3 hours for the non-attending Oktober Guard sets to sell out! We did not have that many to put online for those not coming to the convention. We wish there were more, but there [...]
