I wanted to be the first to officially congratulate Justin Bell on his successful Kickstarter for Duck Duck Goose.  Duck Duck Goose is Crime Thriller written and published by General Joe’s Justin Bell.  Justin has always been there for the Joe community and has now ventured out on the new endeavor as an author.   

It is great to see the Kickstarter funded and this first hurdle over for Justin.  Again a huge congratulations to Justin and a huge thanks to everyone who backed the Kickstarter.

Collector’s Club Convention Update

unnamed

The Collector’s Club sent out a quick update this morning in regards to the Convention.  Looks like there is going to be a strong attendance this year for the Convention which says a lot of the fandom and the support they are giving the club for the last convention.  Please see the email below for all the information in regards to registration, the Con set and the hotel availability.

From the Collector’s Club

I hope to see all of you at the final Collector’s Club G.I. Joe Convention in June!

What a great weekend this will be!

After registration being available for only ONE week, the response has surpassed even our strongest past shows:

The American Hero’s Golden Ticket packages are sold out.  The Thursday Custom Class is sold out.  There are 12 seats in the Wednesday Class available.  The Homefront Hero’s packages are sold out.  The American Hero packages are 90% sold through (not many left).  The General’s Golden Ticket packages are sold out.  The General’s packages are 60% sold through.  The Base Commander’s packages are 45% sold through. The Marauders’ loose sets are sold out.  

If we have sets available when we get closer to the convention, we will move them to the non-attending cue.  Currently, we must keep them in the attending cue for members that are coming to the convention.  

We have added more rooms at the Staybridge Hotel, please use the information at GIJoeCon.com.   If you have a problem with getting a room, please let know as we think they can still add some more rooms to the block. 

If you collect GI Joe, you owe it to yourself and your collecting friends to be at this show!   GIJoeCon.com

Slaughters Marauders Mutt & Junkyard

Here is the third figure reveal from the GI Joe Convention set.  The Slaughter Marauders team gets an addition to the unit with Mutt & Junkyard.  Mutt looks great even though he looks like a repaint from his earlier release.  The deco looks good and appears to match up with his ’89 Marauders version.  I have always liked Mutt & Junkyard so I am happy to see him included in the set.  I think when all the figures are revealed it’s going to be a great looking set.  I was fully in on Slaughters Marauders as a kid so I am in full nostalgia with the release of the set and lets be honest who doesn’t like a figure that comes with a K-9 companion.  Keep checking back as we post the rest of the figures as they are revealed and keep checking out the GI Joe Convention page for more details.

Sectaurs Warriors of Symbion

Hey guys so some exciting Kickstarter news.  Zica Toys launched their Kickstarter campaign a few days ago for Sectuars Warriors of Symbion.  They are already half way to their goal of $40,000 with 25 days to go.  Zica has been teasing us with news of the Sectaurs for around 10 months now and finally it’s our chance to get in on this.  Sectaurs is of course based on the 1985 action figure line released by Coleco.  The line was short lived and never made it past the first wave but now we have a chance to remedy that by getting Zica off the ground.  One of the best parts of this Kickstarter is that Zica has adjusted the figures down from their original larger size down to the 1/18th (4”) scale.  The first two figures in the lineup are Dargon and General Spidrax, the main hero and villain of the series.  They are offering these as a two pack or by themselves.  Get in on this early and let’s help get this campaign fully funded.

Jump on over to Kickstarter and read more about the campaign and the Sectaurs.  Also, check out Zica Toy’s Facebook page to see pictures of additional waves of figures.

Second Figure – Python Lamprey

Another day and another figure preview from the GI Joe Club Convention set.  We get our first look at the Python Patrol with the release of the Python Lamprey.  The Deco looks great and it’s looking like a good set with the first two figures.  Keep checking back and we will make sure to keep you updated on the rest of the figure reveals.

Registration is Live!

The GI Joe Club gave us two exciting pieces of news today.  First registration for the upcoming, and sadly final, GI Joe Club Convention is now live and second we got our first peak at the GI Joe club set.  Get online now to register for the event.  The first figure preview from the convention set is Slaughter’s Marauders Infantry Trooper Footloose.  We last saw Footloose as the 2012 GI Joe Collectors Club Free Membership Figure and here we get him again as part of Slaughter’s Marauders.  If you missed out on the figure 6 years ago here is your chance to get him again… of course in a slightly different deco.  This is a very nice first reveal and I can’t wait to see the next.
