It’s been a busy week for G.I. Joe news, so I guess I picked a fine time to try and get GeneralsJoes back current again.
Previously we’d heard that there were VIP tickets for fans on sale for HasCon for the somewhat scary cost of $600 and Derryl’s recent presentation at the 2017 JoeCon revealed that they were certainly working on some other initiatives to make the fan experience at JoeCon worthwhile. Included with that is apparent assistance from G.I. Joe fan community member Dan Klingensmith as well as a special dinner with G.I. Joe legends.
Further details have also been revealed about additional incentives for G.I. Joe fans. In addition to the San Diego ComicCon Missile Command Center being repurposed for HasCon, there will also be four additional figures (two additional COBRA Officers and COBRA Troopers), an exclusive lithograph and animation cells. If you do invest the $600 in the VIP package, you apparently get access to all of the different events, so if you’re a fan of other Hasbro properties as well, it may be more worthwhile.
I still find the package details and pricing to be a little confusing, so you may want to check the HasCon Website for the full details.
