It’s that time of year again– Coil Con V is happening in just over a week!
Nothing says “end of summer” like Coil Con, the fan-run convention that brings together G.I. Joe collectors from across the Midwest! This year’s event promises to be bigger and better than ever as the event has outgrown its previous venue in Kokomo, IN (at ever-amazing Kokomo Toys) and instead takes over the Wyndham Indianapolis West Hotel in Indy!
In addition to a toy drive to benefit the Child Life initiative at the Indianapolis Children’s Hospital, this year’s event will feature a host of vendors, the door prize/raffle table, and the always exciting travelling exhibit of JoeDeclassified.com. Plus, if you’ve not already seen it, check out this preview of Shrike, this year’s exclusive Coil Con figure! (JBL received permission to mirror the images below.) He’s the creation of Coil Club designers Jay Hunger & Brian Kauffman and will be part of a 2 figure set that’s limited to only 40 pieces!
This year’s roster of guests includes:
- Sean Forney – comic artist, SMComics.com
- Bryan K. Borgman – creator, Kaiju Kaos minatures game
- James Kavanaugh – author, R.A.H.C. Guide
- Gary “Gyre-Viper” Head – JoeDeclassified.com archivist & fandom Elitist
- Gary Godsoe – show-runner of What’s on Joe Mind podcast
- Mike Irizarry – co-anchor on What’s on Joe Mind podcast
Plus, check out these photos from last year’s event held at Kokomo Toys! C’mon– you KNOW you want to go!
