Joe Con 2017: Video reviews of the Battle Force 2000 vs BATs set

Gi joe con 2017 logo

Joe Con 2017 is ramping up and Mike Tinnel of Just Another G.I. Joe Show has been hard at work already, providing details of the souvenir sets and other intel from the show floor.

Late last night, Mike broke open his convention set and posted a series of videos showcasing the figures that comprise the Force of Battle 2017!  He even brought along vintage counterparts of the figures for comparison purposes.  (I wonder what the TSA made of Avalanche, Blaster, Blocker, Dodger, Knockdown and Maverick.) Joe Con 2017 probably raises a few eyebrows at security checkpoints.

I’ll be embedding all the parts of his review below for your viewing pleasure as they go live this morning!

Also, over at, Chris McLeod (of the Full Force Fancast) and Troy McKie (designer of last year’s set) have posted another video review of this year’s set.  (Those guys work CRAZY quick.)  There’s also an accompanying gallery of still images that show off these figures in all their plastic glory!  Head on over to Justin’s site and check out the images!  I’ve embedded the video below but seriously– visit and check out the images!

That’s all we know for now.  JBL’s armchair coverage of Joe Con 2017 will be continuing all weekend– including a special “Live from the Con Floor” episode of Just Another G.I. Joe Show on Saturday at 3:30pm CST.  Will Mike be able to get the screen share working in time?  Tune in and find out!

And now you know…
