Episode Six of the JoeDeclassified SpecOps Podcast is live!

Seems like a while since we got a new episode of JDSO, but the wait is finally over!  Gyre-Viper and a dozen of his closest friends get together to talk about variants, figure errors, and the mysterious second wave of Dollar General figures!

The cast of characters is wide and varied as usual, and it’s definitely worth a listen.  Check out JDSO on Podbean.com or listen via the embedded player below.

JoeDeclassified invades the Canadian JoeCon!

Not content to merely represent the hidden world of G.I. Joe at the official G.I. Joe Convention on an annual basis, this year, the guys from JoeDeclassified will be going north of the border!  Yes, apparently their parole has been lifted and homeland security is letting them leave the country.

Not only will JoeDeclassified have a great booth at the Canadian JoeCon, but for the first time ever, they will be holding a seminar at the show discussing many of the hidden gems of the G.I. Joe universe.  Secrets will be revealed from the past 30 years, both in the booth and at the seminar.  There will be items shown in the panel that are not on display at the booth, and there will be items in the booth that will not be seen at the seminar, so going to both will be the best way to see everything that JoeDeclassified has to offer.

Many people have personally sent Gyre-Viper select pieces from their collections and the oldest 3 3/4″ prototype known to be in existence will be present at the show.  This is a must see.  These are all items that will be publicly unveiled at some point, but for the immediate future, the Canadian JoeCon is the only way to see all of this in living color.  History may be getting re-written 30 years after the fact, make sure you are present to hear and see all about it!

Below I have mirrored some images, which will serve as “teasers” for product being shown at Canadian JoeCon.  Don’t miss out!  For all of the latest info, keep checking CanadianJoeCon.com and a huge thanks to Mike for inviting JoeDeclassified to take part.  Obviously big thanks also go to JoeDeClassified.com themselves to keep up to date on all these great pieces of history throughout the G.I. Joe line.
