The third installment of the JoeCanuck G.I. Joe Collectors’ Newsletter has been posted online here. Featured in this issue is the first look at the 2008 JoeMeet Exclusive figure Snowbank! Even cooler than that, Hasbro Canada has chosen the newsletter to be the first place for collectors to see the Canadian exclusive packaging art for the 25th Anniversary figures.
The fine folks at JoeCanuck have posted the second Collectors’ newsletter on their site here. Featured in this second installment is some great Canadian insight on G.I. Joe, a review for Joecanuck, the first exclusive figure from the Canadian JoeMeet.
But perhaps the best news is that you can see, for the first time, how Snowbank looks! Snowbank will be offered as an exclusive figure for the 2008 Canadian JoeMeet and is looking terrific.
By now most folks are likely aware of the Canadian JoeMeet, which has been going on for several years and brings us some terrific exclusive figures, such as JoeCanuck, Black Ice, and Shiver. The Meet is held once a year, typically in April, and today JoeCanuck has launched it’s first Newsletter. The plan is to release a monthly newsletter with reviews, articles, and lots more interesting content that Joe fans of every nationality will appreciate.
