So, 2012 was obviously a strange year for G.I. Joe. I’ve never seen a year be so eventful and uneventful all at the same time. There was a constant stream of news, information, and chewy nuggets of discussion, but at the end of the day (year?) there was really little change in the status quo, or some might argue a negative change in status quo. How is that even possible?
So, anyway… 2013 is the next year standing before us, and I think we’re all hoping it ends up better than the last, at least from a G.I. Joe perspective. With some fantastic product revealed at last year’s JoeCon, with Toy Fair only a couple of short months away, with the apparently successful Figure Subscription Service experiment, and with the brand branching out with third party companies like Hot Toys, things are certainly looking more positive.
While G.I. Joe news was a roller coaster this year, the dedication, interaction, and support that I receive from the online G.I. Joe community has done nothing but grown stronger, and I thank you all for visiting the site, supporting the site, and interacting with me here and on Twitter. The Joe community is awesome, and I’m thankful that I have the opportunity to interact with so many of you.
Thanks for a great 2012, and here’s looking ahead to an even better 2013. Happy New Year.
