What to know about New York ComicCon Coverage

So, officially NYCC breaks out tomorrow.  At this point we’re not entirely sure when new items are going to be shown, although thanks to the G.I. Joe Collectors’ Club and Hasbro themselves, we do know that SOMEthing is going to be shown!

My initial plans were going to be to head down to NYC over the weekend to do some coverage for GeneralsJoes, but a few things have gotten in the way of that.  Primarily, we had our main database server self-destruct last week, which turned us on our heads for about 12 hours.  We have recovered, but a part will need to be installed, and will need to be installed after hours, which means this weekend.

So, my apologies, but until I can get an online gig that matches my IS Director pay, that job’s gotta come first.

Doesn’t mean you won’t see coverage here, though!  I will be combing the ‘net as I always do, pulling intel from my awesome comrades throughout the online community and make sure you get the details and analysis you’ve grown accostamed to.

We are also recording the latest episode of What’s on Joe Mind tonight, which is of course before anything is revealed at NYCC.  However, in order to properly digest and report whatever is going to be shown in the Big Apple, plans are to record a second special NYCC Edition of Whats on Joe Mind on Saturday night so we can give some “on the spot” input and feedback to the new 7-Packs, any potential GIJCC items, and perhaps even some G.I. Joe 2 toys?  Hey, we can hope, right.  ;)

Anyway.  Keep your eyes on the site throughout the weekend, as I endeavor to feed the reports back in digestable chunks.  GeneralsJoes has made some great strides over the past few years as I kind of get used to the blogging format, and I just want to thank everyone who has stuck through it.  I know I have a ton of work to do cleaning up old reviews, I have dio-stories to wrap up and many other things on my G.I. Joe-related plate, but it pleases me greatly to see how many of you are visiting and how many of you seem to enjoy what I put out.

The rest of you can go pound sand.  :shifty:

  1. Speaking of Dio Stories, I’ve been curious about the status of Darkness Falls. Any news on how it’s coming along? Can’t wait for the coverage of the convention!

  2. Funny you should ask… I am actually hard at work on it. I’ve got 3 or 4 episodes filmed. Still have to do a lot of the SFX, and I want to make sure to have a lot more images taken before I start posting, but I’m crossing my fingers that I may be able to start showing it early next year. I have to shoot it in my unheated garage, so weather could be a factor…

  3. That’s great! I’m sure I’m not just speaking for myself when I say I’ve been eagerly anticipating the conclusion to this story. Can’t wait!
