Those awesome Joefans to the North just keep on coming out with these great online newsletters… a ton of work and time goes into these things, and I feel a sense of disappointment in myself that I didn’t have a chance to submit a portion of my review for the latest Canadian JoeCon set from last year…but even so, there is some great content in there.
This month’s issue includes a Christmas Canuckleheads comic and as always, some great articles here, and don’t forget to let us know what you think about it on the message boards.
Content includes: “Main Page”, “Completing Your Holiday Wishlist or Daddy wants a new bandsaw”, “2010 CanJoecon CHROME Prototype “, “Meanwhile, Back In The Comics: Operation: Redesign!”, “Canuckleheads : Silent Night”
The content within is terrific for not just Canadian Joe fans, but for Joefans everywhere. Check it out!

Canadian television station “Space” visited the Canadian JoeCon in Hamilton last weekend, and has put the clip online! Featuring many “friends of GeneralsJoes” throughout and even interviewing some of them, the feature does a nice overview of the current state of the fandom as the movie release looms three short months away. Get some great shots of the sales floor, some interesting insight, and hear the weakest “Yo Joe” I’ve ever heard in my life…
Apparently Hasbro Canada brought some treasures with them when they visited the Canadian Joe Con this past weekend, one of which was a COBRA Night Raven from the upcoming G.I. Joe: Rise of COBRA toyline. cmderinchief grabbed some great pics and posted them on the Coil Club. They’re mirrored below as well.
JoeCanuck message board member xhairs has posted a bunch of images of this past weekend’s Canadian JoeCon. By all accounts it was a terrific weekend! Check out all of xhair’s images here, and I’ve also mirrored a bunch of the Exclusive set pictures below.
Over the past week, various sightings of a chrome-plated HISS Tank on Asian message board ACToys.net has prompted Joe fans to wonder what the heck it was. Well, it would appear the mystery has been solved. In a thread on JoeCustoms.com, “THE Mike” put a post in the thread referencing a YouTube video. That video is embedded below:
Mystery solved! The chrome HISS Tank is a 2009 Canadian Joe Con Exclusive! Lots of folks have expressed interest in it…plan on being in Hamilton, Ontario on May 2nd to get your very own.
