Canadian JoeCon reveals modern era JoeCanuck!

The Canadian JoeCon started out several years ago as the “Canadian JoeMeet” and involved a mere fraction of the people that attend today.  But even when it first started, a custom figure got things rolling, and back then, that figure was JoeCanuck.

The original JoeCanuck was a vintage style o-ring figure with a customized head…now the folks North of the border are giving us an updated JoeCanuck figure in a modern era style!  JoeCanuck doesn’t need to mess with long-sleeved winter coats, he rocks the Canadian winters in a short-sleeved shirt.

I think this is actually my favorite figure of this year’s Canadian JoeCon so far.  Love seeing some Rise of Cobra/30th Anniversary/G.I. Joe: Renegades parts, and the color combination is excellent. Great stuff!  Check out JoeCanuck.com for the official reveal, and I’ve mirrored an image below.

    The Paris Pursuit Snake-Eyes waist without something to cover up the space for the belt looks a little off.

    canadian fans are happy with these figures? okay.

  • DrSyn

    So he’s the Renegades Ripcord figure re-purposed?

  • Jester

    I hope the skin-tone isn’t that dark on the actual production figures.

  • Shadow

    Ummm? He’s black. So I would think the skin tone is that dark! LOL.

    well it won’t be a production figure because the CJC exclusives are all hand made by the hundreds using availible parts in huge quanties.

    and that sounds a bit prejudice…

    yes and it works nicely IMO

  • DrSyn

    Aye, works for me.

  • Ryan( Mapleleaf) Hildebrand

    At least he is going to be an easy custom. Renegades Ripcord , general Hawks web gear, a storm shadow or firefly head, and goggles from either lowlight or firefly. Cool :)

  • Jester

    Who is? The JoeCanuck character or Renegades “Ripcord”?

    I love the idea of a modern JoeCanuck, but this looks downright lazy. The cold weather operative in a ski mask and short sleeves makes little enough sense, but it ends up looking like he raided Beach-Head’s closet… and being a black man, he ends up being uncomfortably close to Rampage v2, the black guy who actually DID raid Beach-Head’s closet. I’m just not into a figure that looks like a copycat character of a copycat character.
