Well, JoeCon officially begins tomorrow night, but thanks to some “Golden Ticket” members and a few enterprising Joefans, we now have some information about the 2011 JoeCon Exclusives! Tonight folks were allowed to grab some of their items, and also got a peek at the Club Comic, which showcased many of the characters we’ll be seeing in the convention set this year.
So…for one of the very few years since 2003 I will not be a JoeCon in Orlando this year. The primary reason for this was initially because I was traveling out of town for work next week, but now as it turns out, my daughter Allison will be having surgery on Friday. This was initially scheduled for February, but various reschedulings have taken place, and now she’s slotted in for a Friday appointment.
The procedure would be minor in most cases, but on an 18 month old, it is not quite so minor, and so, for obvious reasons, that is where my main focus will be for Friday and for a chunk of the weekend. If I have the opportunity, I will certainly provide coverage and insight, and will most likely do some evening recaps, but I just wanted to let folks know ahead of time what was up.
I am extremely fired up to see what Hasbro has to offer, and I’m just as excited to bring coverage to my readers as I ever have been, but real life may intercede this weekend, and I appreciate everyone realizing this, and understanding that any lack of at-the-second coverage this weekend is not a result of any personal opinions with the brand.
Even if those bastards did kill G.I. Joe: Renegades.
In celebration of the upcoming 2011 G.I. Joe Convention, I am spending each day reviewing the remaining GIJCC Exclusive Adventure Team figures…yesterday I covered the Air Adventurer, today I journey to the Sea!
