Joe Con 2012: Pics of the convention diorama!

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– battling Cobra and keeping the toy shelf safe for democracy. 

Here are Photonut’s excellent pics of the 2012 multi-setting Con diorama! 

In memory: Craig “Outrider” Anderson…

Craig “Outrider” Anderson was an Australian G.I. Joe fan who loved photography, Major Bludd, and o-ring Joe figures. An active member of both and Flikr, Craig continually amazed and impressed fans with his eye for the dramatic when it came to snapping pics of our favorite “Real American Heroes”.   He passed away Sunday, May 23, 2010. His legacy in the fandom, however, will not be forgotten by the body of high-quality work he left behind at I’d invite everyone to take a reverent look at the works of… a man who raised the bar of “Joe photography” for all of us.

You will be missed, Craig.
