Big news day from the G.I. Joe Collectors Club

Being on the road for most of the day, I didn’t really get a chance to talk about the two big news stories that the Collectors’ Club dropped today in regards to the upcoming G.I. Joe convention at the end of the month.

Big story #1 – Voice actress Morgan Lofting, better known as The Baroness will be appearing in Orlando as a guest of the Collectors’ Club!  Very cool.  By far one of the most distinctive voices in the original Sunbow cartoon, this is a great coup by the GIJCC and she should make for some very interesting discussion.

Big story #2 – Rare toy alert!  Apparently the Collectors’ Club incentive figure for 2011 will give fans an even bigger incentive to attend the Convention.  A very limited run of 600 Dial Tone figures will be available at JoeCon MINT ON CARD.  Normally sold in a sealed baggie as part of the Club’s promotion, some select figures will be carded and for sale at JoeCon.  Attendees will also have the chance to get these signed by Dial Tone’s voice actor Hank Garrett.

Two very cool bits of news.  If you want to read the full press releases, click the “Read the Rest of this Entry” link below.

Who are the Shadow-Vipers? Find out March 25th on G.I. Joe: Renegades!

So, G.I. Joe: Renegades returns with new episodes next Friday, March 11th, but the episode shuffle has pushed “Whiteout” back to March 25th.  To this point we hadn’t heard any episode details, but now TVGuide.com sheds some light on the subject:

“The prototype Shadow-Vipers and Storm Shadow follow the Joes to Canada, where they are hiding out with Snow Job.”

So Shadow-Vipers, Snow Job, and the return of Storm Shadow?  Whiteout was initially an episode I wasn’t all that excited to check out, but suffice it to say, that’s changed now!  Thanks to The Terror Drome for the information.
