IMPORTANT JoeCon Announcement – New dates and location announced!

This just in straight from the Collectors’ Club:

 

Please note that due to circumstances beyond our control with the anticipated venue for the convention, the dates of GIJoeCon will now be June 28-July 1 at a new venue, the Hilton New Orleans Riverside. We apologize for any problems or issues this change of date has caused. We hope to see you all in New Orleans June 28-July 1 at the Hilton New Orleans Riverside. Convention (attending and non-attending) registrations will start sometime in February.  Again we apologize for any problems or issues this change of date has caused

 

You can now make your hotel reservations at GIJoeCon.com.

Anyone who has asked for vacation time, looks like you’d better adjust your request.  Registration starts in February!


G.I. Joe Collectors’ Club posts 360 degree video of Footloose

Were folks wondering what the GIJCC Exclusive Footloose looked like from all angles?  Wonder no more!

The Collectors’ Club has posted a great YouTube video featuring their 2012 exclusive incentive figure Footloose, and finally gives us a good look at all sides of this great looking figure, including the backpack.

Check it out embedded below.

If you think the figure is cool, hit up GIJoeClub.com to join the club before March 16th!

EDIT – The GIJCC has also sent along a nice close up image of the Club exclusive figure, too.  Looking GREAT.

G.I. Joe: Retaliation Cobra Motorcycle revealed!

In the trailer for G.I. Joe: Retaliation a specific scene with a mysterious individual jumping a motorcycle and firing a machine gun brought about some questions…who was it?  What were they doing?  What the heck were they riding?

Well a couple of those questions have been answered, courtesy of the 80s Tees Facebook Page!

The folks at 80s Tees posted on Facebook saying they’d seen some unfinished footage for G.I. Joe: Retaliation because of their licensing arrangement with the G.I. Joe brand.  This is what they had to say on Facebook:

“One of the best parts of my job is that every once in a while I get to feel like a bit of a Hollywood insider. This is because licensed product needs to be prepared before a movie gets released. Earlier this week I was treated to some unfinished scenes from GI Joe Retaliation. I can tell you that it looks like a ton of fun, and it’s packed with great action movie actors. It is now one of my more anticipated summer movies for 2012.”

Sounds promising!  Of course along with this great description, 80s Tees also provided a great image of the Cobra motorcycle that was featured in the trailer!  Very cool!  Check out the mirrored image below, and be sure to check out 80s Tees as well.

A big thanks, too, to Fred from JoeBattleLines for pointing this out!
