G.I. Joe Convention returns to New Orleans, LA June 21st – 24th

And the bomb just dropped!

A week or so ago, The Commander over on the G.I. Joe Collectors Club forums revealed that the Convention location and time frame would be revealed by the end of the month, and he stayed true to his word.

The GIJCC sent out the email this evening, and we are confirmed, ladies and gentlemen…  The Official G.I. Joe Collectors Convention returns to New Orleans, Louisiana June 21st – 24th!  Featuring special guests, awesome panels, and a heavy helping of flat out fun with your fellow Joe fans, the Convention is the G.I. Joe place to be.  Dropping so close to the premier of G.I. Joe: Retaliation, one also has to wonder if a movie night might be in the wings.

The Collectors’ Club promises more information to come, so stick with GIJoeCon.com for the latest and greatest.  Yo Joe!

This just in – The Rock is a jerkface

Come on, man!  So, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has been posting awesome updates via Twitter for several months now in regards to G.I. Joe: Retaliation, and as a fan, I’ve been eating that crap up.  Some great little costume shots, excellent pictures of Johnson clutching cool looking weapons. Lots of great stuff.

So yesterday he posts a video, entitled “If only you could see what I see” …  and this is what he does to us:

Argh! Come on, Rock!  This is killing me…  if we don’t get some footage soon, there’s gonna be some serious nerd rage goin’ on in this bitch.
