RAHC Guide debuts on March 31st!

There’s an added incentive to attend the Collector’s Convention this year… and it’s not from the Collector’s Club!

March 2011 – Debuting at the 2011 G.I. Joe Convention, the adventure continued in 1997 and is now completely documented in the R.A.H.C. Guide!

After a brief hiatus in 1994, G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero gained a resurgence in pop culture causing a re-release of some favorite characters in their classic molds. This revival eventually induced some experimenting with these classic characters in bold and exciting new directions. Not only did fans get to revisit some of their most cherished icons within the G.I. Joe mythos, they were introduced to new characters that are now known and loved.

This full color, 172 page compendium fully explores all six series that were produced within the second generation O-ring torso era (1997-2007) including the Built to Rule line and the Collectors Club special releases. This guide beautifully illustrates the era’s 689 action Figures, 135 vehicles and play sets and 1,349 accessories including all known variations. Not only is every accessory present and accounted for, they have each been assigned a unique number and identified throughout the resource guide. The accessories are then culminated in a separate section clearly displayed and organized by category. Each action figure has been carefully examined between its initial run and further re-releases to ensure that an accurate sample is clearly and concisely presented for the collector who is identifying individual action figures or sorting through unorganized lots.

This is the guidebook that I’ve been waiting years for. I’ve made no secret of the fact that I’m an unabashed fan of the G.I. Joe vs. Cobra and Real American Hero Classics era and this tome is going to do those figures justice! If you’ve met James, you know he’s a passionate Joe fan and it shows in ever single page and image from this impressive work.

My only regret is that I have to wait until after the con to snag a copy! It cannot get into my hands soon enough!
