With a single email, Brian Savage at the G.I. Joe Collectors’ Club will likely throw the fandom into a frenzy. In past years, even with SDCC fever hitting the fandom, the G.I. Joe Collectors Club has generally been able to offer some of the exclusives through their site. Not so this year. We just received the following email from the Collectors’ Club:
“We have been getting a lot of questions about the Hasbro exclusives for this year’s Comic-Con and we want to let you know that we will not be able to get any of the exclusives this year.
If you are interested in these items, you will either need to attend Comic-Con or check Hasbro Toy Shop to see if there are any left after the show.
Have a good summer!
Have a good summer? HAVE A GOOD SUMMER?! My summer would be much #$@#! better if I knew I could get a #$@#$ Zarana!!
In all seriousness, while I don’t anticipate Zarana being as hard to get in the long run as Sgt. Slaughter, I know this news will upset the apple cart a little bit within the fandom. Let’s just hope that Hasbro has the forethought to manufacture enough supply for the demand, especially since they’re apparently restricting the outlets through which they can be sold.
I’m strapping on my flak vest.
