G.I. Joe Convention BattleForce: 2000 Video Review Onslaught

Wow!  Once again, huge props to Chris McLeod from The Full Force who has come through HUGE upon returning from his whirlwind trip to JoeCon.  He was kind enough to send along video reviews for all of the rest of the JoeCon exclusives and they have all been posted to the GeneralsJoes YouTube Channel.

I couldn’t make JoeCon again this year, a fact that I was quite disappointed about, and Chris came through in a massive way.  Huge thanks to Chris from The Full Force and check out the embedded videos below.

News and Intel from G.I. Joe Collectors Club panel at JoeCon

The G.I. Joe Collectors Club Panel is currently happening at G.I. Joe Con in Orlando, Florida.

First, they revealed a scattering of new G.I. Joe Collectors Club exclusives, including the 2018 Membership figure.

2018 Membership Figure

  • Rock n Roll v2

Additional Sets

  • Heartwrencher w/ Dreadnok Ground Assault 4WD
  • Nightstalkers 3 Pack (same bodies as this years female COBRA Troopers)

They also announced two figures from FSS 7!

  • Crystal Ball
  • Tomax

Brian also (mostly) confirmed that next year will most likely be the final G.I. Joe Convention, and it will be June 21st – 24th in Chattanooga, TN.  Big thanks to Patrick and Phil from YoJoe and Chris from The Full Force for the updates!

Derryl also confirmed that there is no other G.I. Joe product at retail this year nor next year.  The next time G.I. Joe will be at retail is with the next piece of entertainment (working alongside Paramount).  There is no news on that right now, but they are working hard to get that entertainment to cinemas as soon as they possibly can.

HasCon has not been developed as a replacement for JoeCon, and this year its about getting up and going with brands at large, but G.I. Joe WILL be a part of HasCon in the future.

G.I. Joe “VIP Experience” at HasCon Friday, September 8th. Largest assemblage of G.I. Joe: ARAH “legends” (creators) with a special dinner event. Dan Klingensmith working alongside Hasbro to bring this to the fans.

VIP Experience is $600, Derryl is working hard to make sure the fans feel as if the ticket price is worthwhile.

Derryl is also curating some never before seen things that will be revealed at HasCon, product from their archives and exciting new stuff that people have never seen.

Some more thoughts and updates from G.I. Joe Con 2017 Comic

Good morning!  So the rush of the Golden Ticket pick up is over and we’ve had some time to digest some more information from the comic book.

Some random thoughts:

  • The original Corrosao was a Brazilian DeeJay repaint.  He appears in the comic both looking like Tele-Viper AND looking like DeeJay.  Which is it?
  • It definitely looks like the B.A.T. Rocket Glider 2 Pack are repaints from the old COBRA Jet Pack (last used as a Target exclusive from Rise of COBRA).

03-Rocket-Packs

 

  • The pilots of the COBRA Sky Serpent looks like it might be a variation of the Laser Viper.  Perhaps a Laser Viper Officer?  You can see a slightly different colored Laser Viper in the pilot’s seat and jumping from the exploding Sky Serpent below.
  • The Vector Jet was up in question for a bit, based on the design of the jet in the comic, but more and more I’m suspecting that it might just be the Conquest, especially based on the uneven artwork elsewhere in the comic itself.

Below check out a bunch of other images from the comic.  Big thanks as always to Phil from YoJoe and Chris from The Full Force for these great images!
