For up to the minute Convention coverage – YoJoe on Facebook

While I’ve been busy running around, intrepid photographer and admins for YoJoe.com have been conspiring to keep up to the minute coverage flying to the YoJoe Facebook page.

If you haven’t already “Liked” that page, I’d strongly recommend you do so this weekend, especially since there are likely to be some big reveals coming from the Collectors Club tomorrow in relation to FSS 3.0.

So check out YoJoe on Facebook and stay in the know!

G.I. Joe Convention 2014 Exclusive Round Up

First and foremost, I must apologize.  I know I’m typically right on top of this stuff, but I took some volunteer shifts with the Collectors Club this year, and as such, haven’t had as much time to report on what’s been revealed so far.

Pretty much what I stated in my post from yesterday morning has held true, including Clutch, the VTOL aircraft, and the Septic HISS.  The Collectors Club also surprised us by releasing a separate 4 x 4 Zombie Hunter VAMP, which had not been revealed in the program the night before.  So there were some very nice offerings this year, and at this point, my favorite extra is probably a mix between Clutch and the Steel Brigade pilot, who are both some really nice, modern builds, and I love that the pilot has some homage to the 2005 Steel Brigade Convention set.

Phil over at YoJoe has been doing an awesome job flooding the YoJoe Image Gallery with photos of the exclusives, so check out the photos over on YoJoe.com for the latest info!

Introducing Boss Fight Studio’s Vitruvian HACKS

Yes, I realize Hasbro has not made their presence known at the 2014 G.I. Joe Convention here in Dallas, but that doesn’t mean there was no news to be seen down on the sales floor this afternoon.

With various artwork and prototype figure reveals throughout the past few months, hype has started building for the new upcoming toy line from Boss Fight Studio, and finally, we have some relatively production level samples revealed for their new Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. action figure line!  HACKS stands for Highly Articulated Character Kit System which obviously leads fans to believe not only are they making some very nicely designed and highly articulated action figures, but these figures are also designed to be customized to a certain level.  The end results are simply incredible.

Revealed today at the Boss Fight Studio booth for the first time were mock ups of Medusa and the Gorgon Warrior from this toyline, which feature incredibly well sculpted, detailed, and highly articulated snake creatures from Greek mythology.  Their amazing design aesthetic has created a tail like body that looks extremely realistic, yet maintains a surprising level of articulation and stability, while also staying within scale with other figures.  As cool as these images might look, seeing them in person was amazing.  Looking at the potential with this small first reveal only makes for some mouth watering anticipation for other stuff to come.  Check out some of the images below, and keep watching Boss Fight Studio on Twitter, on Facebook, and of course monitor BossFightStudio.com for the latest news.  If you’re in Dallas, definitely stop by their booth as well, they’re doing sketches, selling t-shirts, hats, and just shooting the breeze with like minded fans!  Enjoy!
